  • Growth hormone levels post workout

    Hi. I've been reading about post workout nutrition, and it appears that high glycemic carbohydrates consumed immediately after a workout cancels out the growth hormone because of the insulin spike it creates, so carbs after a workout would curtainly be undesirable. However, it also appears that BCAAs found in whey proteins (e.g. Leucine) also stimulate an increase in insulin levels. Whey protein gets tons of praise for being the perfect post workout recovery meal, and im not saying it isnt, but it would be interesting to find out how it effects growth hormone levels, that is, if the insulin response from the BCAAs is severe enough?? anyone got any info on this?? Cheers
