I think your list is fine with the exception of fruits, just keep them to moderation and also keep starches out of the diet. You just want enough carbs to restore glycogen depletion...

His (The OP, to whom you addressed your response) list included granolas, but I see you have no objection to them as per above statement, only fruit.

I have no opinion on granolas as I don't eat them henc why I left it out of my note. I said keep fruit in moderation as that was the basis of the original conversation...

I'm not saying granolas are inherently bad, as they can be made quite good but if fruit is your only source of fructose/glucose, you have nothing at all to worry about when eating more.

Fruit is brain food. So is spinach. Everyone should eat up on them.

The average person gets so much HFCS syrup into their bodies...their liver gets fat. Fruit as the only carb source to a healthy active person is one thing.....a person drinking soda, eating processed foods and adding fruit on top of all that is quite another. To assume a native living off fruit with no other carb sources and the average sick american should do the same thing....is like comparing apples to rocks.

I'm with Fenthis on this one; fruit is about as good as it gets nutritionally post workout because in addition to carbs you get electrolytes, antioxidants and a whole host of phytonutrients that might just help you live longer.

Well whats the verdict on yams and oatmeal and rice and stuff. At lean gains Martin reccomends most of the foods post workout on lifting days should be starch as to refill muscle glycogen. Besides, soaking wet Im only around 125 lol and 5'10.
