    Raisins pre-workout

    Would raisins with my pre-workout meal (which is also my breakfast, finished 60 - 90 mins before I start lifting) leave me crashing halfway through my session? I'm not sure what sort of effect they would have on bloodsugar... Or would I be better off going with a different fruit, like a banana?

    no rasins have a medium effect on blood sugar...look it up on the GI chart....

    if your tryin to get some energy before a workout a better way to go would be some melon if you want a fruit or a baked potato about 30 min pre workout

    or just get a NO supp lol.

    You would be fine, you are overthinking it to be honest.
    Food quality does not change the laws of thermodynamics. Provided you consume adequate protein, EFAs, fiber, and vitamins and minerals you can eat whatever you want.

    The only difference between a 'clean' and a 'dirty' food is how much of it you eat.

    The Glycemic Index is meaningless unless you eat carbs alone in a fasted state. As soon as you add fat, protein, or fiber to a meal or have eaten in the previous 4-6 hours the GI is irrelevant.

    Raisin = sugar = fast digesting = not too helpful. Eat a bagel or some oatmeal an hour before and you're in good shape.

    See, I would be eating them as part of my breakfast, which is my pre-training meal, so I'd be having them with low-GI carbs like oats and wholemeal toast and some other fruit, like an apple

    you just wanna eat foods that are low on the GI. Raisins are somewhere around 60, while apples are around 35, meaning that you'll get a bunch of energy from raisins, but then you'll loose it (crash). thats why you want a constant source of energy (something with a lower GI)

    GI is far from overrated.

    Although the tripe is this thread is all sorts of miss. There's hardly enough carbs and calories in a standard portion of raisins to bother worrying about. Let's say a handful. That's still nothing major.

    I often use raisins in my oatmeal myself, but as long as it isn't the focus of your meal, you're fine. A sprinkling on top is a great way to spruce up your bland oats.

    Just add the dam raisins to your meal. This will keep you from getting bored from dieting, and in result will keep you eating healthy forever.

    Keep in mind raisins have an absurd amount of pesticides from the growing process... You'd probably be much better off with organic raisins...

    This.

    I have them post workout personally, but whatever works for you. Have some fat with them though to give you lasting energy throughout your workout.

    Why does everyone bring up the GI? I personally think it's over-hyped. According to the GI, watermelon is harmful, which I do not think is true.

    If you're going to bring up GI, I mean raisins have fiber they will not digest as quickly as you think.

    I guess with carbs for me it's timing, but i get called out on that too sometimes.
