    Are these “better” (what ever that means) than just standard Rice Krispies?

    Weighing up getting a glucose monitor just for “fun”-fairly cheap on amazon.

    Rice crispies have added sugar and salt in them and are rice and barley.

    This puffed rice is simple puffed brown rice.

    I’m just a bit more into health now so like to try and eat as clean and less processed as possible.

    Prob doesn’t make any difference in the long sun but I feel better eating cleaner with single ingredient items. Like if I want puffed rice. That what I want. Not messed with and added sugar, salt, flavourings.

    Use less sugars.

    So oats instead of coco pops or ground rice or rice pudding .

    Cyclic dextrin instead of pineapple juice.

    I think your causing a big YO YO in blood sugar levels.

    Thanks Hilly,

    Would you recommend keeping P+F meals (albeit with veggies and occasional berries) outside of the workout window, or switch to a more balanced P+C+F meal structure in this period? From my basic understanding it’s not necessarily the carbs causing me to go “crazy” but instead too many carbs/high sugar carbs in combination with low fats throughout the day.

    No I’ve done carb back loading with no issues very successful.

    The pro/fat is just making you more insulin sensitive which is the idea

    But then nailing loads sugary/real fast carbs will cause a spike n crash.

    So for me I’d be doing dextrin Intra then either ground rice or rice post.

    Thanks mate-I guess I’m “worried” about my fats looking so high, but I guess my calories have to come from somewhere.

    Today I ate 3010 kcals:
    P 185g
    C 187g (Predominantly coming from Oats and raisins with whey PWO)
    F 171g

    Does that look acceptable to you?

    I have no idea as I no nothing about you being honest.

    A higher protein meal should be eaten post workout. Low carb meals before workouts restrict the energy needed for exercise. It may even cause a drop in blood sugar levels during intense workouts sessions.
