The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Eat actual corn instead of maltodextrin & dextrose?

    I've been on a really big "natural foods" kick lately and want to stick with it. I've been drinking kefir (fermented milk beverage) instead of taking whey protein powder.

    However, I still need a carb source. I'm wondering what would be the best real food (or juice) to eat for my post workout meal/drink?

    I know that malto & dex come from corn. So....could I just eat corn and get the same result? My parents grow the stuff, so I have access to real, clean, organic corn - not the frozen or canned junk you get in the store.

    I'm wondering if corn would provide my body with the same insulin spike that malto & dex do.
    Anyone have any idea?

    Maltodextrin and dextrose are pure, refined carbohydrates. So, of course, the answer to your last quest is NO. What are your numbers/experience level? You may not necessarily NEED to have your insulin spiked in order to get optimum growth. Just my opinion... let the flames begin.
