Complex, only use simple carbs directly after workouts to restore glycogen stores.

agreed, although a few simple carbs in the morning won't kill you.

It doesn't matter what type of carbohydrates you consume. Whether it's high glycemic, or low glycemic makes ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENCE ON BODY COMPOSITION.

Complex grains tend to be harder and can be honed like a knife. That will make cutting cleaner without the jagged edges. Almost like a razor.

Personally I would eat mostly simple..
For me a larger portion of fruits and vegies would be more satisfying than a smaller, equal calorie, portion of grains.

Its all personal preferance really.

Both are fine, just avoid refined sugary carbs.

I think the G.I. is garbage...but there is an arguement to make with glycemic Load.

IMO I think the makeup of the carb is much more important. Fructose cannot be used by muscles as energy. It can only be used for brain function and is stored in the liver....which can only hold a small amount before being spilled over.
It kinda like saying your protein source doesn't matter...only macros. That's just not true. If you aren't getting a complete amino profile you cannot use it. It just pools in your blood. Meaning if you only get protein from beans (incomplete protein) you wont have all the amino acids needed for repairs.

The arguement I keep seeing on this board only seems accurate on a caloric deficit.

Lmao :D

OP, it doesn't matter. Complex carbohydrate sources are generally associated with greater satiety (feeling "full") so you may want to go that route if you're cutting calories and find yourself hungry. Simple carbohydrates can be consumed whenever you like, NOT just post-workout...but like I said, complex sources generally keep you fuller.

On that note, however, I wouldn't down a WMS shake as a mid-morning snack....because I know it's inevitable that someone will argue with me on this post :rolleyes:

I don't know about those gummy worms. As much as I like them, crap gets stuck in your teeth and the OP is bound to need a root canal before he's 21. I'd vote to make a shake out of them or something.
