To gain or not to gain muscles, high GI carbs


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about To gain or not to gain muscles, high GI carbs within the Diet & Bodybuilding category.

Excerpt: Some eat baked potatoes as for carbs as meals with high protein and so on. But baked potatoes are pretty high GI carbs and lots of people give advice not to eat them except post workout, even if the main goal are to gain muscles. I eat lots of rice, parboiled rice. They are a little lower in GI than jasmine and basmati, but I often eat the rice a bit "overdone", the GI will increase with this. anyway, if someones goals are to gain muscle mass would it be that bad to eat medium to high GI

    To gain or not to gain muscles, high GI carbs

    Some eat baked potatoes as for carbs as meals with high protein and so on. But baked potatoes are pretty high GI carbs and lots of people give advice not to eat them except post workout, even if the main goal are to gain muscles. I eat lots of rice, parboiled rice.

    anyway, if someones goals are to gain muscle mass would it be that bad to eat medium to high GI carbs? I mean this must be good when it comes to insulin.

    The nice thing about high GI carbs are I get hungry much faster and therefor can eat more. If I eat fibers all day long I wont get the same hunger and cals might be too low during the day to gain mass.

    Anyway, what would you suggest for musclegains, low GI carbs, medium or high?

    If you OVERboil the rice, it will actually become HIGHER on the GI scale because of the outer shell breakdown

    This is a fine way to gain mass, a clean way that's for sure

    I would suggest a combination of the 3, remember everything has it's place and time. Post workout, HIGH GI. In the morning - Medium GI. In the afternoon, Low-gi.
