Glucose should be preferred over tons of fructose and sucrose, but as to low vs. high GI, simple vs. complex, or whatever you want to call it, no.

Depending on how many cals you need to eat total, it may be easier to eat faster digesting carbs and relatively less fiber (think white bread instead of whole grain) simply because that may make it easier to eat more.

Like Lyle wrote in the article though, health should also be a concern, and there a lot of studies showing whole grains and whatnot are good for us.
