Quark, such a good idea??

was just thinking if u were looking to stick to a low carb diet do u think Quark with "Options" is such a good idea b4 bed as a pot consists of 16g of carbs in total.

Yes I know 16g aint a lot but if u were trying to get the majority of your carbs around your training sessions do u think it may a bit high.

Sorry if it's too much of an open question with too many aspects to give an effective answer which it may well be!!!!!

Cheers

    muscle glycogen = 400g
    liver 70g

    (all appx)

    16g doesnt hit the sides?

    low calories = cut

    personally i dont use quark, dont use options but 16g is not going to make or break a diet is it?

    Could you just not drop the options with the quark? ? ?

    Quark is just nice on its own or with peanut butter, factor it in to your diet.

    the 16g must be including the options sachet...right?

    I have two quark products here, both low fat, 1 has 2.2g carbs per 100g, the other 3.9g. Neither comes close to 16g per tub.

    Why don't you mix your quark with a scoop of chocolate whey, flax oil and water before bed, just drink it down. That's what I do every night without fail.

    They are only 6g carbs a sachet.
    Your German quark probably had a different ratio. The Golder Acre stuff (most common brand in UK) is 3.5% carbs or so if i remember correctly.

    muscle glycogen = 400g


    TT, do you mean that say if I were to have 500g of carbs 1 day, would 400g go towards muscle glycogen and 70g towards the liver?

    If so were would the remainding 30g go (my guess is transformed to fat)?

    Is this also why you prefer to have higher carbs in your diet rather than fats. So that your glycogen stores are filled?

    nope it wont be. If 470g of the carbs you eat are stored as glycogen and not metabolised that leaves the rest to be burned for energy as surely you forget you have a BMR to sustain?

    I never knew it took so much carbs to fill glycogen stores.

    So in order to keep the body functioning at rest, energy is also used from other macronutrients I take it? Especially people with low carb diets.

    So where does the body hold this overspill of carbs? ? ?
