View Full Version : Best carb sources while cutting

11-26-2001, 10:51 PM
I'm getting VERY tired of bowl after bowl of oatmeal. What are some other good carb sources while cutting? Or maybe I should say QUICK, INEXPENSIVE, and good carb sources while cutting? I've heard conflicting things about everything from fruit to potatoes... can anyone give me some kind of list or something, cause I think I'm reading too much into it (please don't tell me to research, I'll just end up asking this again in different form in about a week, sorry for the inconvenience :))

An apple a day never hurt anyone. Esepcially if they weren't competing. Atop of that, the insulin response to fructose is minimal. Eating an apple will replenish both liver and muscle glycogen.

I would incorporate minimal starches, and get most of my carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables.

Low GI Carbs are best.

Brown Rice

You might want to try whole wheat pasta or wild rice. Both are lower on the G.I. scale and are very tasty.

Wild rice needs to be cooked a little longer and has a little "nuttier" flavor...

Fruit is the perfect snack when it's consumed seperately from anything else.(glucose,starch,protein,fat)

Actually Yates, I think pasta is a relatively high GI carb. The other stuff looks good though.

I also thought pasta was a very processed food?

i think whole wheat pasta wouldnt be too bad

bit starchy though. it won;t keep you full as long as, say oatmeal.

only whole wheat pasta is in the middle of the gi index. white pasta is similar to white bread
