Does anybody eat apple sauce post workout?
I normally get about 80g of carbs from apple sauce and 50g of protein from protein powder after my workout. What are your opinions on this? Is apple sauce high GI?
apples have tons of fructose, whichis great for energy for ur workout. i'd recommend eating it before workout, b/c fructose won't spike ur insulin like other sugars, it might not be any good for after workout unless u want to replenish carbs. forgot the Gi, but i remember it doesn't mean anything b/c of the chemistry of the sugar, and hwo they give the GI number to all sugars in general.

Adding to what Podium has already stated...once liver glycogen stores are full any remaining sugars will be secreted as serum glucose and "may" be used to restore muslce glycogen. the only real problem I can see with using apple sauce post workout would be a longer digestion time (25 minutes +) when compared to many other sources of simple sugars...apple juice would be better than apple sauce
