The difference between complex
and fast carbohydrates?
Carbohydrates can be divided into complex and fast carbohydrates. There are a lot of questions surrounding which one is best to take. To simplify, think of pasta and sugar. Even when the total amount of carbohydrates is equal to sugar, it will leave you less full and you will get hungry faster. Pasta on the other hand is much more sating than pure sugar and reduces the chance of you being tempted to a snack in the evening.
That is not to say carbohydrates do not have value. Fast carbohydrates, for example in the shape of a Dextrojuice Pro, can be taken around your workouts to give you loads of energy. Even after training these simple carbohydrates are useful to help recover muscle glycogen. At other times, but even around weight training, you could opt for a carbohydrate shake which consists of complex carbohydrates such as 100% oat.
