Good Carb Sources for Refeeds
It's about damn time you dragged your ass over here!! j/k!! Glad to see you over here man.. The interaction/info on this board is great! (which is a definite understatement).. You'll be an awesome addition to the board man.. Glad you stopped by..
Anyway, I think I'll shoot you an e-mail rather soon regarding refeeds.. as I know we're of similar stature and such.. so we would probably have similar results/etc... I'll get an e-mail too you as soon as I can.. Even though I'm pretty busy with trying to write articles, in process of possibly attaining a volunteer position at my schools new strength and conditioning center so I can begin to get experience in S&CC, organic chem/physics class, and July 4th coming up, I'll try to get one out to you as soon as I can..
Again, I'm glad you stopped by..
I would guess dextrose, maltodextrin, etc., to be ideal carb sources as carbs are all broken down anyway - unless there is a specific benefit in the digestion process.
It was mentioned that fat blunts insulin levels, would that be a greater concern, or would a stepped-up transport of fat to the cells (in a high insulin environment) be the bigger worry?
Popcorn has a (relatively) high fiber content, and during refeeds fats and fiber should be kept fairly low since the goal is to spike Insulin which has the effect of increasing Leptin levels (which is why dextrose, maltodextrin are ideal sources).
Using the Glycemic Index as our source of comparison, Glucose has a value of 100, while Popcorn has a value of about 55.
Man to his doom goes driving down; a crown of thorns is still a crown!
dextrose, maltodextrin, maltose. stay away from to much fructose.
