    Starchy Carbs, High Gi Carbs And Simple Carbs????

    What's the difference between these 3 or are they all the same, just called by different names?

    Can anyone give me some examples or list of foods/fruits containing Starchy carbs, hi GI carbs, and simple carbs?

    Now, while cutting, you should avoid Starchy carbs, hi GI carbs, and simple carbs except for post work-out right? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    From what I understand there are two types of carbs:

    SIMPLE (simple sugars) & COMPLEX (starches)

    And these can be divided into

    HI GI (breads, crackers, pastries, and sweets)
    LOW GI (Fruits, vegetables, whole grains and high fiber foods )

    I think SIMPLE/HIGH GI after workout is recommended.
    And COMPLEX/LOW GI during day...

    High GI/Starchy = Potatoes/White Rice/Noodles/Wonder Bread

    Low GI = Oatmeal/Brown Rice and to an extent, Veggies too

    Simple Carbs = Dextrose/Maltodextrin (Sugar)
