“I recently had a buddy ask me about r-ALA and he expressed symptoms of that hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemic induced coma that some of you guys have often mentioned after eating carbs post-workout or on a carb-up.”
Well, that buddy would be me.
These last 3 days I did a quick experiment with my post-w meals.
Day one: Protein + rolled oats + all bran.
Day two: Protein + cooked rolled oats + all bran.
Day three : Protein + cooked rolled oats.
Long story short, I felt symptoms of that “hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemic induced coma” with both of my meals containing cooked oatmeal. Even worst symptoms with the absence of extra fiber (all-bran).
Apparently cooking oatmeal DOES raise it’s GI, at least in my case.
My solution? I won’t stop cooking my oatmeal; Why? Probably the fact that when they fill up with water when cooked, reveals all their properties more optimally. (soluble fibre content, more ease of digestion etc.).
So I’ll just get some ALA from 1fast. I’m planning to take 600mg per P/C meal.
R-ALA on a 200mg dosage would last, for 15 days (20$), ALA on a 1800mg dosage would last, for 30 days(25$).
There you go.
