    Low GI Carbs vs. High GI Carbs in post workout meal..

    Okay being that I'm bored and in need of an argument here we go.. I was wondering, wouldn't it be more benificail on consume a high gi carb meal after your shake instead of a low gi carb (yams, brown rice). Being that as LMO said your insulin is in effect for 3 hours after a spike wouldn't it be better to shuttle more glycogen lets say 2-3 hours after your shake. Just a thought..

    Put it this way, I have a recipe that I use most of the time, and that I recommend to those on my cutting programs. Hot n Spicy chicken teriyaki w/white sticky rice, soy sauce, etc. High GI carbs within 2-3 hours after is just fine, in the right amount.

    intresting.. from what i read it seems that using high gi carbs as a pwo meal keeps insulin running and keeps on aiding to repair muslce.. just a thought.. any idea of pro cons?
