    you are psycho? is that a good discussion point?

    you left out quinoa, the ancient indian god of carbs. And I find most fruits in general to also be good, primarily non-citrus. So bananas, pears grapes, berries as well. outside of that, hmm I like whole grain bread but thats cause I need something to make sandwiches on so it doesn't really count. Maybe buckwheat?

  3. I like Ezekiel bread and cereal and Avant Research's SuperCarb. All are low glycemic and tasty.

  5. It's good stuff, no doubt. I like putting Liquid Sucralose and cinnamon on it.

  6. People tend to eat way to much bread even if it's considered "good."

    I know the 4 sources I listed are the best however. Banana's are wayy to high GI.

  7. All-Bran. There are healthier fiber choices, but I refuse to remove it from my diet.

    hmm interesting, cause banana is between plain sweet potato and sweet potato boiled, and below brown rice as far as www.glycemicindex.com shows.

    what about quinoa? or bulgar ?

  9. There are tonnes of good carb sources.

    Here are some I can think off the top of my head

    Sweet Potatoes
    Yams
    Long Grain Brown Rice
    Old Fashioned Oats
    Scottish Oats
    Fresh or Frozen (w/o syrup) berries
    Fruit
    Whole Grain Bread
    Fiber One
    All Bran w/ Extra Fiber
    Uncle Sam Cereal
    Whole Wheat Pasta
    Lentils
    Legumes
    New Potatoes
    Red Potatoes
    Pumpkin
    Squash
    Turnip

    As for GI. In reality who gives a .....! unless you are eating sugar by itself, then the GI won't mean squat. As the other foods ingested with the meal will throw that number out the window.

    Do you know anything about Ezekiel bread?

    I consider it a better carb source than whole grain rice.

    There's much more to it than GI, in fact, it matters far less what you eat than hitting your daily diet numbers, making the small necessary adjustments each week, and timing your macros (which timing macros probably doesn't matter until single digit BF anyway).

    If GI, eating clean, or any of the other nutrition fads out there that authors write about trying to come up with new stuff to fill a magazine were true, I'd be fat. Unless you have some kind of physiological problem going on (thyroid, diabetes, etc.), your body is just not going to break any laws of thermodynamics.

    What those types of foods DO for people, is help with satiety, mood, etc. But the overall net effect isn't going to be affected if the diet is kept in check and the necessary adjustments are made...no matter what bodytype you have.

    I know I'm probably blaspheming here, but way too many of my overweight clients have gotten super lean by eating things that were not consider clean, or low GI, and blah blah blah. They ate the food they wanted to, hit their numbers every day, I made their adjustments depending on what all happened that week, and we rinsed and repeated. For instance, it's not that you can't have pizza. It's that there might not be enough roon in your daily numbers to have very much of it. But if you can control yourself to limit the portion size to hit your numbers, then hell, eat pizza! After all, the BEST diet is the one that you can stick to. Period. All diets pretty much say the same thing in a different way (they each have their own spinoff and have some random studies to back up their theory). When it comes right down to it, they all are saying the same thing. Eat less and exercise more. The approach you use matters much less than just hitting that "cals in versus cals out". Only when you start to get to single digits (for men, or 12-14% for women), does any of the other crap really matter. And even then, it only *might* make a difference.

  21. Here is some food for thought (literally)-oats and brown rice are two of the most acidic foods that are in our diets. Acidosis causes many nasty conditions and is one of the main causes for high cortisol production.

    Yeah, they are kinda pricey. Bananas and raisins are 2 good sources. I know that they are higher GI, but they are also great at neutralizing acidosis. I have been using either a banana or raisins with my oats (sometimes with honey as well) for a while and I have noticed better recovery from using extra oats or non-fruit sources.
