Hi everybody. This is Kiefer with with another quick tip in this holiday season.

And this is – How can you use Carb Back-Loading with Paleo-approved foods?

Everybody knows that I am not a fan of the term ‘Paleo’ because it’s kind of idiotic to think that we ran around in vast fields of fruit trees and nut trees with tubers popping out of the ground when we were cavemen. But, that’s neither here nor there – the diet itself is actually a good diet and adheres to many principals that I promote. So the question is – How can you do Carb Back-loading and Carb Nite with Paleo-safe foods?

Well, I’m going to kind of cheat on this a little bit because I know all grains are evil in the eyes of Paleo. But to be honest, rice should be exempted from that mainly because the carbohydrate make-up of rice really isn’t that far from tubers. And as far as natural carcinogens go, white rice is actually very clean. So a lot of foods I suggest are white sticky rice – the stickier the rice, the higher the glycemic effect. White waxy potatoes, red potatoes, new potatoes – the waxier the potato again, the higher the glycemic index.

And there is a lot of cereals out there that are made without gluten and one of the top picks is Fruity Pebbles. A lot of people seem to enjoy that. But if you check the foods, any of them based on rice like Rice Krispies, even there’s Rice Chex… even normal Chex – people tolerate relatively well with the corn in it.

Those foods are great for Back-loading and Carb-Nite if you restrict it to gluten-free diet or you’re worried about milk… those things. If you’re worried about milk and you want to eat Rice Krispies, I highly recommend rice crispy treats because Rice Krispies isn’t really good without milk other than in the form of a rice crispy treat. Some other food options are overly ripe bananas with spots. Grapes also have a pretty high glycemic index.

So those are the foods that you can kind of work around for your back-loads. Have a high glycemic load. Avoid crap. And again, this is if you need to…  Like I’m a big fan of cherry turnovers but not everybody can stomach them very well. And this will help get your insulin levels high. Still help you get the benefits of Carb Back-loading and Carb Nite without worrying about any adverse food reactions that you might have.

Alright, that’s another tip from
