which one?

why? (preferably with a shortish reason, explained in a informative way yet so that the majority of us can understand)

Thanks :)

High

Because of low blood sugar, depleted Gylcogen Stores and Insulin effects.

low
because right now my goals center around minimal fat gain/maximal fat loss and being on a lower carb diet, i dont need a high gi to get an appreciable/significant insulin response

analogous somewhat to the virgin receptor theory regarding gear use.

Moderate amount of high GI, followed about an hour later by a moderate amount of low GI.

Still going for weight gain, not too worried about fat accumulation.

(Fat? Where?)

well i like the ckd style diet, i seem to have lost little strength, even seeming to gain in some lifts still.
Ketosis is a muscle preserving state. I am down 23 lbs now and gaining in my workout.

low carb dieting though for weight lifting sucks as we all know- it would be hard to lift and thus muscle mass could be lost from lack of ability to maintain intensity during lifting

Blackie, if oatmeal and sweet tattys are your definition of moderate GI foods, then what is your definition of low GI foods?
