I often hear people say that you should get carbs which are not part of peri-workout meals from low glycemic index sources, like oatmeal. The logic is that you aren’t using the energy for physical activity so you want to raise your blood glucose slowly. That makes sense.
I also hear (sometimes from the same people) that its good to get most of your carbs from sources like fruits and vegetables. But fruits are which are almost entirely simple sugars…naturally I’m confused here. Have I missed something?
