ok so you want high gi post workout. You dont have any of this maltodextrin and dextrose you hear people speak of.

We'll you dont have to run to GNC and buy some tub of overpriced sugar (sorry bel.- hehe).

Just have 3-4 servings of jasmine rice post workout (90-120 g of good high gi carbs - but not the overtaxing mix of dextrose you find commercially). It has virtually no fiber, is very high GI, and tastes good.

Hell, you can sprinkle your creatine right on the rice!@

Would you be interested in getting yourself a gold card today as well? That would knock 20% off that tub of sugar.

3-4 servings of Jasmine rice ? you mean feeds 3 to 4 people ?

sounds to me like a heap of rice to eat...

Try oats, the instant one with or without sugars. You may microwave with skim milk or water. Add to it: rich protein shake with banana, grapes, berries and protein powder.

Mix the hot stuff with cold shake and drink!

one serving is 1/4 cup of uncooked rice. It is barely nothing

Buy that rice at the store. It is almost the same as basmati rice.

Bananas for what? As your main carb source postworkout?

03-11-2002, 10:03 AM
They moslty contain glucose (bananas) so it may be a wise choise.

I prefer though to eat some high gi cereals with milk and a protein shake.

Bananas are comprised mostly of glucose?
Is there a reference or an explanation you can share?
That interests me.

03-11-2002, 12:18 PM
Yeah wiz me too.

I remember hearing some crap about a ripe banana being more fructosey then an unripe one or someshit...and that didn't make sense either.

oats OR sweet potato and whey for me

maki: good carb source and they also contain vitamin B6, C and potassium - which are all lost during strenuous activity.
