Something that I would appreciate clarity on. I eat whole wheat spaghetti for it's fiber content, and in trying to make balanced meals, usually add some kind of meat to it. Problem is I've heard that fiber somehow "get in the way" or rather doesn't allow proper absorbtion of the protein. Is this true? Would this apply to any meal where the carbohydrate source is of high fiber?
Hi, well I'm with Ryan. Fibers and fats have thr properties of slowing down digestion, which, IMO is a good thing, but I've never heard of it being selective to anything, including proteins. It just keeps a slowed down absorption rate of all macronutients, and keeps down the possibilities of spiking insulin way down. I'd say, yes, go with fiber and protein. The only exeption I could possibly see is with a post workout meal, and you were actually trying to load glycogen, but for most people, I really don't think that is necessary.
