Many of these Ii use in my nutrition, though i knew very little about Glycemic Index Very useful post. Thank you!
Great post Mullet! Although frustratingly not only the cooking but also what specific foods you are eating it with eg. if your eating fats or protein with your carbs, again the GI is altered! Unless you literally sit there and eat only 1 food per meal without processing it at all the GI will change! Dont know about everyone else but I usually have a mixture of foods at each meal (tricky)!Yes, any processing has the ability to significantly alter the glycemic index of your carbs. The longer you cook a pasta for example also raises it's GI.
Lemon in warm water first thing in the morning is great too for doing this as well as alkalizing affects and love the Cinnamon on food as well (tastes good too)Did you know that adding fat, vinegar or lemon juice to a meal will lower the glycemic index of the food your eating. Try using fresh lemon juice on your water when eating your meal, this will lower blood sugar. Cinnamon as well will lower blood sugar.
While this is true, it can be most helpful for those people looking to add carbs pre, post or even intra training, when they may constitute a decent percentage of the ingredients, and a certain uptake duration is desirable.How often do we eat carb sources alone? Because that is what the GI measures. The vast majority of the time we eat some amount of protein, carbs, and fats in a meal. GI is pretty damn crappy at predicting blood glucose response and unsulin response to foods when full meals (protein, fat, and carbs) are eaten. This isn't to say you can just eat table sugar for all your carbs. Just that the glycemic index sucks for judging carb source quality
And yes, I agree about carb source quality.How often do we eat carb sources alone? Because that is what the GI measures.

Eat them. Eat raw, non-gmo fruit. If the sugar in fruit is going to ruin your figure you've got bigger problems, unless your doc tells you otherwise!!what about fruit like apples?
Ah... Sweet potato complex carbs ? I totally forgot that and I m having it post workout ...this is great, bc I always was confused by GI's.. but I don't exactly understand how I can implement this in my diet..
morning meals "banana to kickstart things" then sweet potatoes as my complex carbs.
after workout: maltodextrin, and dextrose for insulin spike. and no carbs after about 4-5 o'clock "while dieting". That's basically a breakdown of the carbs in my diet "I am meticulous about measurements but that doesn't apply here" so how would knowing this help? simple carbs hit your system fast in the morning, complex carbs throughout the day, and simple carbs post workout- isn't that enough info??
