    rice milk as a source of carbs

    Hey guys, I find rice milk an easy way to get carbs into me do you think im reducing gains if im substituting proper rice or pasta if the macros are the same? I know the rice milk will have more fat gain due to the sugar but would it affect muscle growth? Thanks

    if it fits into your macros, then go ahead and see what happens. everyone is different.

    i look at the rice milk as a fast acting carb source, to replenish glycogen stores quickly. it takes your body longer to break down rice and pasta to use it for energy.

    slow acting carb vs fast acting carb

    like RG said its a good source of fast-digesting carbs, cause they're mainly simple sugars if its anything like regular cow milk, never tried rice milk before, but im assuming theyre similar. I would take it right after gym with my protein powder. Slow digesting carbs are still better in my opinion for most other meals of the day, and they fill you up for longer so you wont feel an hungry right away.

    True. I've also found a few people who say they are lactose intolerant yet can eat all the yogurt and cheese they want. I believe it is generally a gut enzyme/ bacteria deficiency.
