    Why? Is an apple less trouble than a powder you have to store, pour, and shake up? Is carrying an apple in your bag more work than that?

    Nearly any fruit will do.

    And the answer is no, there's really no low-GI carb powder. Better than maltodextrin is HRS, but it's more expensive and it's not nearly as good for you as fruit.

    Prolab has a Lean Mass Matrix with low GI carbs. But there are plenty of simple whole grain foods that you can actually chew with your meal rather than drink. Whole wheat bread, for example. That's faster, easier, and cheaper.

    the main reason i want to drink it is because i cant eat as much as i would like to
    Mick, apples ?
    it has only 13 % carbs, and if i want 300 grams of carbs, that would be ALOT of apples
    how bad would it be to drink sugar ??

    An apple 13% carbs? Are you on crack?

    Apples are 95% carbs. Get a clue.

    If you're trying to spike your insulin, then yeah, just add some dextrose or maltodextrin.

    But this guy is asking for a slow-carb supplement. That just doesn't make any sense to me.

    Mick, you seemed like a smart guy, i guess you just missed it:
    Your link says that 125 grams of apple consists 17 grams of carbs which is 13,6 %
    From the little calories that are in apple 95 % are the calories from carbs, 3 % from fat, and 2 % from protein
    95 % carbs have things like sugar, honey, ...
     

  9. yea, i was just askin about simple carb supps. thanks mick.

    Then learn the definition of carbohydrate, don't get snide with me. It was your failure to specify. Sugars are carbohydrates.

    Regardless, the composition of carbohydrates is irrelevant to its digestion timetable. I thought you understood this because you said "slow" carb. Apparently your knowledge is rudimentary and second hand. A "slow" carb is a carb with a low GI load.

    Im not sure what youre trying to say (language thing)
    I didnt claim to be expert, I just said that apples have 13 % of carbohydrates, and if I want to eat 300 grams of carbs, that would be 2307 grams of apples
    Do you agree with this or not ??
    I dont know what snide means

    OMG, you don't even understand that sugars are carbohydrates.

    No, dude, I don't agree with that statement. Are you unable to read? There are 17g of carbs in an apple. It would take 17 apples to get 300g of carbohydrates. That's a shitload of carbs. Even if you consume the ceiling 600g carbs per day (the maximum amount it's been hypethesized a person can store as glycogen), that's 50% of your daily total, and that's WAY too much to be deriving from a powder.
