Obviously the best bet is to determine reaction to foods based on experimentation, but is there a general consensus for protein types on PWO carbs? It seems obvious that, for these types, starchy carb should be avoided in order to maintain or lose bodyfat, but when attempting to gain mass, might the benefits of starchy carbs in eliciting an insulin response and thus sparing amino acids outweigh the shortcomings?
There are two main reasons why I ask this:
1) I have significant doubts about my ability to control all other aspects of my diet, training, etc. as to give me a high degree of scientific confidence in the changes in my body comp as a pure result of PWO starchy carbs
2) Even if carbs make up 30% or less of your total calories, if you are a large-sized person trying to put on mass, that still constitutes a large number of carbs that do not seem practically achievable through the sole consumption of green vegetables and the like.
The only way to know for sure is to fill out the DCR's and find what works best for you. Did you take the advanced MT test through me?
If so, then you should have the DCR in the documents package that I sent you after I sent your results.
It is impossible for me to recommend anything because I have no idea how much activity you do, and what your individual needs are for optimal health. The DCR's will lead you to the answer-eventually.
Most find that they do need a certain amount of starch in most meals-especially those that are consumed after training.
Let me know if this makes sense, and the more information you can share the better.
I actually get by with basically the same meal that I eat at other times during the day for post workout with a few exceptions: I take Ultra Life's Cataplus and Liqui G-Plus after training, and I put honey on my food. Other than that, the meal (for me) is the same basic "structure" as my other meals. I have a high purine meat that is right for my type and that I have no sensitivities to, I then have roughly an ounce of some type of bean or lentil, and then about two fist fulls of mixed vegetables (lima beans, green beans, carrots, corn, peas). My starch comes from the carrots and corn, and then I add the honey.
...but what works for me may not work for you. That is why we have the DCR's!
Actually, there are new DCR's that Bill just gave to us advisors. If anyone wants a copy, then just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and put "New DCR's" in the title.
