Regaining my wardrobe and thoughts about Food with high Glycemic Index
Wednesday, September 28, 2011
At the beginning of the month I started taking care of my diet, started to send my personal trainer food diary and couple of weeks ago I started going to the GYM lifting weights.
Now only 28 days later I am starting to fit into my old clothes that are smaller but this morning I was able to wear trousers that have not fitted since I started my cancer journey.
There is something my trainer let me do that I am not used to but after lifting weights she wants me to eat food with high Glycemic Index and also some protein.
OK.. no problem, but do you know what kind of food has high Glycemic Index :) :) :) :) :)
Fat free ice cream
and so on (chocolate has to much fat)....
The thought about this is that when you lift weights you need the protein to go to the muscles and one way doing that is to eat food that makes your body push your insulin status high in the air and when the body does that it pushes the protein to go into your muscles fast! By doing this your muscles start to "heal them self" quickly after lifting weights. (I know this is a really simple way of explaining this)
SO! When I come home from practice I eat Lucky Charms (55g) and fat free milk and some Skyr (that is a protein product).
