I would down a protein/creatine/carb shake immediately following your workout, and then wait about an hour before taking in a meal. Check out http://www.ast-ss.com for the supplement timing guide.

Will insulin spike only occur with High GI? Or you can also spike insulin with Low GI, I mean if you eat like too much rice,bread,potatoes? If so, how much is too much?

any carb causes an increase in blood suagr levels which result in a release of insulin so yes, any carbs, high or low GI cause an insulin response, but high GI causes a faster insulin response from blood sugar level increases.
