Alright i so i have a friend whos always begging me to read this section from a book hes been reading about carbs. Mainly grains. I’ve read the massive eating articles and notice most of his carbs come from fruits and vege’s. He ensures me grains are completely pointless to building muscle. While i know carbs dont feed muscle i do know they replenish glycogen stores. Yet he’s one of those persistent guys always tryin to convince me. I want to know why grains that i see in most bodybuilders bulk diets are used… whats the point? If protein builds muscle why do they eat so much oatmeal?
He assures me you dont need to consume carbs because carbs are converted to glucose once ingested, and that your body can do the same with protein if it needs to. This is becoming more of a personal debate between us haha so i want some help here. Cause im getting owned.
