I'm a breakfast person, and well since I started cutting I've been making sure I get enough protein in the mornings. Now this has made my normally big breakfast of 600-800 calories a bit higher, and closer to 1000 calories. Is this ok as long as my total for the day is within my goals?

LOL it isn't hard.

3 Jumbo eggs fried in 1 tbsp olive oil = 390 calories
3 pieces of white bread(walmart brand) = 180 calories
2 cups whole milk = 300 calories
2 scoops whey protein = 240 calories

Total = 1110 calories

Lots of high GI carbs in there.

:soapbox:

Grrrrrr, high GI carbs?

Allow me to clue some of you in. When scientists check postprandial glucose and insulin levels to determine whether a food is low or high GI, they will have individuals fast for 12 hours and then consume a meal of only that specific food.

This gentleman is consuming his white bread with whole eggs fried in oil, whole milk, and protein powder. There are a lot of fats and protein in that meal to attenuate the absorbtion of any nutrients, and to certainly moderate glucose and insulin levels after the meal.

Those of you who are freaky about the specific types of carbs consumed need to know the WHOLE story, not just the HYPE.

Well since you're cutting, why not drop the unneccessary fats? Use non stick spray instead of olive oil, and skim milk instead of whole. I think that saves you ~300 calories in fat, and you dont lose any of the protein.

I apologize, oh great one.

I'm aware that fat will, essentially, help to "lower" GI in a sense. But, this leads me to a question, would there be added benefit to still consuming lower GI carbohydrates or would it not make that much of a difference...assuming a cut?

On another note whole wheat bread would provide more fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals.

sure oats would be a better choice as white bread often has soya, hydrolised oils etc in it

Nope. If anything, high-GI carbs (assuming nothing else to lower the GI), could be helpful on a cut, as they are through the system faster, letting you get back to fat oxidation sooner.

using that logic, for best results, my cut would best consist of lollipops and fig newtons instead of rice or sweet potatoes ... ?

Well, there's a lot more to it than being digested faster...otherwise an ideal cutting diet using your description would consist of whey protein with dextrose and some fat throughout the day.

If you are in a hypo-caloric state it doesn't really matter if you have a high vs. low GI food. What IS important is that you make sure to eat foods that are high in vitamins and minerals as your limited calories will also limit your intake of these important nutrients.
