Did a search and didn't see this topic come up.
I've been doing some searching to find documentation on this theory behind mixing carbohydrates and haven't found any yet, so if anyone can point me in the right direction, please do.
I spoke with a guy I ran into at the store about a month ago who used to compete in body building competitions back in the late 90's early 2000's and he mentioned that he mixed his carbs with his meals i.e. sweet potato, brown rice, and red potato's (and/or some other white potato). Of course this would be combined with a protein source like Tilapia or egg whites. Apparently this type of combination at the right portion size (i.e. 1/4 portion of each) had a better metabolic effect on the body's ability to burn fat and build muscle since they are of different compositions i.e. short, medium, and long chain carbs.
I'm paraphrasing this, so I may be missing something, but has anybody else heard of this school of thought? According to the guy I talked with, some of the big names out there like Dorian Yates and a few others subscribed to this method.
