AS previously stated, the greater the GI (glycemic index) of the carbohydrate, the greater the insulin spike. Carbohydrates from low-GI sources are stored less quickly and create less of an insulin spike. The result is that a boxer will utilise more fat during training sessions, but also not put on excess fat due to the slower rate in which the digested carbs are stored.
