Using High Glycemic Index Foods to Your Advantage

June 19, 2009


Howdy dudes and dudettes! This will be a very short post today because I’m hitting the hay.

When is eating high glycemic index foods ideal for you? There are 2 very good times.

1. When you are engaged in a prolonged high intensity workout.

2. Within the first few (4 or so) hours after an intense workout.

In the first case, your body will use the carbs ingested as fuel and will not store them.

In the second case, your muscles will be carb depleted from your workout, and they will “soak up” the carbs and store them as glycogen. It is also during this post workout period that your muscles are very receptive to using protein to repair and build themselves. So, consume some protein with your post-workout high glycemic index meal.

Until tomorrow!
