I’m interested in knowing something that I can’t find the answer to anywhere else. I know that carbs are basically converted into at least two usable products by the body (maybe more I don’t know of?): muscle and liver glycogen. What I don’t know is what types of carbs exactly are converted into each. Is the answer as clear cut as simple carbs convert to liver glycogen and complex cabrs convert to muscle glycogen? Or is the answer much more involved than that? What are the best sources of muscle glycogen converting carbs (I’m assuming it’s the usual recommendation of whole grain oats, pasta, etc.)? My problem here, and the real reason for my asking this question, is finding a source of carbs that’s both useful and easy to consume on the go while gaining weight on a bulking diet (muscular weight, that is). Sometimes trying to consume 500g worth of carbs a day from the usual oatmeal, wheat bread, wheat pasta, and vegetables is hard to do. I’m aware that carbs from fruit sources are mostly useless as muscle glycogen. Anybody have any suggestions for carb sources that are portable,easy to consume (i.e. not quite so filling as the sources listed above) and also usable as muscle glycogen? Or do I need to just suck it up and keep shoveling all this stuff down my throat? Any help is greatly appreciated.
