When Should You Use Simple Carbs?
There is one time of the day when it is a good time to ingest a simple carbohydrate: after your workout.
It is critical to take in simple carbohydrates after your workout because this starts the whole recovery and muscle growth process. Following a hard workout, your body is severely depleted of glycogen and glucose.
During a hard workout muscles use glucose (usable energy) and glycogen (stored energy) for energy. Therefore, there is a point at which blood glucose levels (available energy) and glycogen levels (stored energy) get so low that intense exercise can't continue. There just isn't enough available energy for your muscles to use.
So what happens is that the hormone cortisol is secreted. This is your body's "stress" hormone and it has very catabolic effects. What cortisol does is eat up muscle tissue for protein and convert it into glucose. A process called gluconeogenesis ensues, producing glucose from these amino acids in the liver. The net result is a loss of muscle tissue.
Taking in simple carbohydrates post workout prevents this. It also allows insulin to be released. Insulin is one of several anabolic hormones in the body. You want to maximize the release of all your body's anabolic hormones through all available methods and taking simple carbohydrates post workout is one of the best methods to do this.
High Glycemic Index Carbs Work Best
But what is the best carbohydrate source to take post workout? The answer is a high glycemic carbohydrate source. This term refers to carbohydrates that are high on the glycemic index (70 and above rates as high).
The glycemic index is a measure of how quickly a food raises blood sugar and insulin levels. Normally, it is best to eat lower glycemic foods so as not to initiate an insulin spike (55 and under rates as low). But post workout, the exact opposite is true.
It is critical to get the carbohydrates to the muscle cells as fast as possible. As well, it is essential to elevate insulin levels which help drive nutrients into muscle cells. And again, high-glycemic carbohydrates are best for this purpose.
