Be carefull this takes a lot out of u and isnt really recommended for a fighter. Plus your only young. Only do it 3 days a week. Its good for packing muscle. Thats how i put on 2 stone in 2 years. Im sure some smartass on here will fault this advice but it worked for me mate, done properly. Your only young so dnt worry to much your muscles will develop in time.
Carbs don't need to be a specific GI, it's a flawed concept. GI is determined when feeding carbohydrates to fasted individuals in isolation, when you add meat and olive oil for example to a carb source, you can just disregard it entirely. It also completely ignores glycemic load, which is theoretically what you should be more bothered about.
As for high protein, it depends how high you're talking tbh.
