    Primal Fuel


    Looking for high calorie (dense), low GI if possible, carb sources as part of a post-intense workout dinner. Probably going to keep the serving size to ~50g at most, and steering clear of processed foods for sure.


    I was thinking about trying poi (I live in Hawaii), but noticed the glycemic load is 28 according to nutritiondata.com, while white rice is 18, and a baked potato is 6.


    Any recommendations?

    Why do you want a post workout dinner?


    Leave it at least an hour and then just eat like you normally would, you'll be just as well off.

    Sweet potatoes are my favorite. I love it smeared in butter!


    And bananas and quinoa. Those 3 are my carb staples.

    Steve -


    My workouts are usually finished around 7-8, so... my post workout meal is basically dinner.


    Raphael -


    quinoa? I&#39;ve never seen or heard of that, but maybe I haven&#39;t been looking, where do you normally find them in the grocery store? Looks like it might be something that&#39;s sold in a "specialty health store".

    Well quinoa is not primal. It&#39;s a seed, or grain, whatever, but I still love it. If you&#39;re not very strict, then you should try it. It&#39;s hard to find them in regular supermarkets but they do have it in "health" stores and at Whole Foods.

    Ah interesting. Well, I was doing VLC (< 10g/day) for about 6-8 weeks and dropped roughly 25 lbs. So, by all means a little too quickly.


    Wasn&#39;t under-feeding at all either, 2400 cal/day and feeling satiated. In fact sometimes I felt like I was force feeding just to get 2400.


    In any case, I purposely wanted to slow down the fat loss and incorporate some carbs in there, and figured right after an intense workout to be best (and to avoid them on a rest day, as contrast). So, definitely down to try out anything at the moment!

    I don&#39;t usually eat in the post-workout window, but when I do plan to throw in so post-workout carbs, I go for either a banana with almond butter or a baked sweet potato drowned in 1/2 cup coconut milk and 1/4 cup chopped pecans. Yum.

    Cubed sweet potato and diced onion sauteed in coconut oil, served with a burger! I never get tired of it; really hits the spot.

    I love my sweet potato spicy. I usually make up a blend of &#39;taco seasoning&#39; type spices, and then pan fry the diced sweet potato in a $/%? load of butter. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... Haven&#39;t had that since going primal.


    Funny how we talk about bananas and potatoes as treats now, isn&#39;t it?
