I usually keep my carbohydrate intake low(below 100g per day) except for my cheat days.
Today I was eating lunch at a Korean restaurant and you can't have Korean food without white rice. BTW, I'm half Korean. About 5 minutes after I finished my meal, my arms were quite vascular.
I've noticed that the vascularity in my body is more pronounced after a cheat meal or any meal with high GI carbohydrates. The veins in my arms, quads, and even one around my top abs will start popping out.
Is there a physiological correlation b/w high GI carbs and the temporary ridiculous vascularity I experience?
