Rice cakes?

Are these good for cutting- I'm doing a short cut (5-6lbs). I've been told that they aren't because they're high GI.

    whole diet mate. If its high GI then use them PWO as a carb source or PPWO. Again GI doesnt matter as you wont be eating htem on their own, if you have it with some protein or a fat source the GI will drop anyway. SPeaking of whole diet post it up along with your stats

    theyre ok but theyre full of sugar to compensate for the lack of fat. I have a recipe for fat free oatcakes that can be quite nice to munch on if you want the recipe of course . The snack a jacks are a mix of rice and corn actually so not technically a rice cake.

    nope kalo ones mate

    i think they do salt reduced ones somewhere

    i use them to cut on

    IMO GI means little when cutting and carbs are very low
    GI when bulking again, is it the full picture? no not IMO

    does GI have its place? yes

    is it the be all and end all of bulking and cutting? no its one minor componenent along with GL/II/fibre content/timing/fat contirbution/choice of protein/metabolic typoe/metabolic state/'supplement use' etc etc

    iopener - diet is looking something like this at the moment:

    7:15 wake
    ~8am - museli with whey
    9:30am - either chicken/beef+salad sandwhich or beef/chicken with salad
    1:30pm - 3 rice cakes with cottage cheese
    ~5pm - meal 4 this varies depending on what I have at home, usually a high protein meal with little carbs.
    ~8pm - pasta with tomato sauce, I try and get in some chicken or lean mince.
    -10pm 30g whey in milk

    I can't get anything in between 9:30 and 1:30 as I work then.

    I usually have them with cottage cheese, and sometimes with peanut butter as a snack.

    I'm not looking for a eating every 2 hour type diet as it doesn't suit my social life.

    And yea, TT they're kallo got some reduced fat and slightly salted ones.

    not taste or cal, I mean bad in the sense of their nutritional value

    would they be seen as empty cals?

    sugar
    flavouring
    fast acting carbs

    does that mean good or bad?

    situation specific

    I wouldn't use them as part of an effective diet, just thinking of the a few now and again as a bit of a treat, sometimes with my PWO as well as I let my guard down a bit!

    people in effect consume sh1tty sugars PWO (dextrose)
    so in theory these would be fine based on the 'good Vs bad' theory

    I get where he's going, though thanks for reinforcing that they're fast acting carbs.

    fast acting carbs when dieting are not the issue they are when bulking or when they are more frequent of high in number

    Would someone be able to give me a small list of fast acting carbs if possible?

    Another question. Can you get fast and slow released fats?

    Thanks Adam
