No its awesome for gaining size and strength.

The difference is the absorption rate and the effect it has on blood sugar level. Complex carbs are absorbed slower and makes your blood sugar more stable over time. Sugars peak your blood sugar fast and can also cause a rapid drop, leading to the desire to eat more sweets.
Ahh yes, actually I remember learning about this now, its coming back to me.
Simple carbs if I remember correctly are already partially broken down, hence why their easier to digest.

Also by peaking your blood sugar you release insulin to take care of amino acids and blood glucose, insulin is the most anabolic hormone in the body and its also what makes you fat if you combine fast carbs with fats in your diet.
I see, so would those bars now have caused me to gain more fat?
I mean I of course have good fats in my diet.
I assume I wont have just gained a load of fat now
