Looks good but you could probably ditch the dextrose with all those oats. A better way to go is pre AND post workout shake intake. I do 80 grams of whey, with one cup of oats...40 pre and 40 post workout.

I thought I read somewhere that it was good to take in twice the amount of sugars to protein so like 60g protein, 120g dextrose? I'm guessing this is totally wrong?

if you search on here you'll find TONS of studying showing why low gi carbs are superior to high gi carbs both pre and post
what i do both pre and post is
1 thing of dannon light and fit yogurt, 1 cup water, 2 scoops whey, 1 cup oats blended together

I hope so, thats what I really need. I've had a subscription to Flex for a few years now and I try to follow what's in it about losing weight but I don't ever see the results I want
11-14-2005, 10:08 AM
that's because flex is absolute garbage
most muscle mags are .. although i enjoy reading MD and they publish a ton of studies .. you've gotta be careful when things are linked to "weight loss" because that doesn't differentiate between weight loss from burning fat or muscle or both

Pre - 1 sweet potato + 2 scoops of Primaforce WPI.
during - 1 gatorade + 5 grams Prima. BCAA mixed in.
Post - 5 grams BCAA + 1 gram NAC + 2 scoops ERgo GF Pro + banana + sweet potato.
Should I keep the post sweet potato or switch to another form??? I am thinking it does not matter and the potato should stay.
For breakfast I have 1 cups oats + 3 scoops of WPI +banana + 1 cup soy and rice milk +2 cups water in blender... mmmmmmmmmyummy

One of those hand held BF testers puts me at 14% BF
I've done this for at least 1.5 years now. They key for me is that I workout at lunch time. So that those fast carbs are mid day. And the rest of the day is either good carbs or no carbs.
12-19-2005, 03:47 PM
nope.. done this for some time now. Its what DG (doggcrap) training style recommends.Originally Posted by hardknock

NUMEROUS studies have shown time and again that complex carbs work JUST as well as simple carbs to replenish glycogen PWO .. simple carbs are just more likely to be stored as adipose fat .. FACT - there is no benefit to using simple carbs
12-21-2005, 09:44 AM
If/when I workout in the evenings and have the time I do advise the use of complex carbs.
But its much easier for me to mix, carry, and consume-- simple carbs via post workout.
I do agree that too much simple carbs -will cause any extra to go straight to the abs.

From my understanding of the research and opinions on the matter... Its not that low GI is better than high GI, its that it doesn't matter.Originally Posted by glenihan
Which then, if it does not matter, why take the risk of adipose storage with high HI.

I keep it pretty simple:
- 2 packets instant oatmeal (simple + complex carbs)
- 1 scoop whatever protein I'm using at the time (right now pro-complex)
- then an hour later I'll usually have 2 97% fat free turkey burgers (45 g protein) and 1 bag frozen veggies
After that I eat every 2 hours
12-29-2005, 01:13 PM
pre 1 scoop substance w/ 1/2 C oats and 20 g dex
post 1 1/2 scoops substance 1 C oats and a banana
1 hour after usually some stirfry w/ pasta veggies and chicken. I dont know why but I need the post postworkout meal within 90 mins of my last shake or i get painfully nauseated. I used to attribute this to the simple carbs but I dont use nearly as many now as I did in the past.

No need to defend yourself. Some people can get away with it. I know I could pound donuts and brownies after my workouts and not gain too much fat. I've tried so many different concoctions with simple and complex carbs from all kinds of diffrent sources; believe it or not I haven't noticed a difference in any of them. BTW, how's the DC training going? It's my favorite way to train.Originally Posted by charger
