Are these a bodybuilding no-no?

The main ingredient is Enriched Wheat Flour.

I know they're not the ideal carb source, but are they ok?


Edit: let's say I was to make them without the flavoring, that emiminates the argument of the insanely high sodium content.

I probably would not make them the staple of my diet, but they are not necessarily "bad." Probably not very filling and could leave you hungry in a short amount of time, but that is the main problem with higher GI foods (appetite control).

I was just wondering if I should stock up on these, because I'm poor and I'm bulking. I wasn't sure if they were considered high GI or not. I suppose pasta isn't that much more expensive, and better for bulking.

After looking around I think Ramen noodles are not high on the GI, and I believe they get ~50 on the GI table. According to the link below:

I still think that you would be better off going with some pasta, sweet potatoes, etc as far as carbs sources go. WW pasta and sweet potatoes have a lot more to offer as far as nutritional value.:)

I would sugguest you don't drink the broth after you cooked the noodle. Just drain the noodle and eat it dry. Most of the fat ends up in the broth after you cooked the noodle.

are you planning on adding the little packet of flavoring? or just eating the noodles?
