Here is a little blurb by Bushy:
It is possible that if you ONLY take in simple sugars PWO with insulin you will cause a hypo due to the fact that once the simple carbs are out of your bloodstream, you have nothing left, ie no complex carbs to sustain blood sugar levels. What I do is take a range of carbs from simple, to complex - honey, bananas, frozen berries, fruit juice, milk and oats all go in the blender with whey and egg whites (also creatine, as PWO with insulin is a great time for it). This way I get a sustained release of both carbs and protein (whey is quick, eggs medium and caesin slow to digest), ensuring that I don’t get a big dip in plasma levels, causing me to hypo…
I understand what you mean by the Fat Bastard Syndrome, so I guess you want to consume the right amount of carbs to keep you from going hypo and not too many to have an overabundance. Geez won’t that be easy!? This is where the monitor would become useful.
The timing of carbs will primarily depend on the type of insulin you will be using. This is where I may choose Humalog over Humulin R, due to the shorter onset, peak and duration. Get my insulin spike over and done with and not have to worry about my carb intake 4 hours later.
I also would like to pose another question:
My postworkout meal is roughly 45 mins after my training (25 after my shake), then 2 hrs after that I have low GI carbs, proteins, and fats, and continue with the proteins and fats every 2.5 hrs thereafter.
Will I have to postpone the ingestion of fats since the duration of Humalog is 4 to 5 hrs? and continue to eat carbs throughout?
I only ask this because I have read that eating fats while having an insulin spike can lead to higher amount of fat storage. Does this relate in anyway to what Dr. Berrardi speaks about when consuming P+C and P+F separately? I also like to follow this as I am a fan of him as well.
