    Grape Juice + Creatine Post Workout


    Does anyone use grape juice & creatine in their postworkout meal/shake? I usually throw creatine in my shake but i was wondering if anyone does the juice +creatine b/c i have heard alot of people that do it but form the looks of them it doesnt seem to be working well. Since all u guys are alot wiser then any human @ my gym i figured i'd see what u guys thought cause from what i've read here all that sugar is a little more prone to turn into some nice belly fat.

    The creatine/grape juice was the normal some years back. It is still effective, however supplementation has involved and companies now use other addiditive to get the insulin level spike that the grape joice provided. I have heard great feedback on Size On from Gaspari. Also I would go by the looks of others. Maybe their diet sucks, training etc.

    Yea i've read a little bit on the stuff. Since it was new and pricey i was wating to hear some good news about it. I might have to give it a try but for $40 and only 30 servings is there another alternative to Size On.

    Honestly bro I would keep to low GI carbs post workout. Although insulin is very anabolic and does open the cell membrane to allow nutrients to enter, you want a sustained release of insulin, not a huge spike followed by a sharp drop. In fact low GI carbs often times release slightly more insulin over time when viewing a curve (and test for AUC or area under curve).

    I say go for it. Grape juice does work as it is low in acidity, and helps with absorption. You can also have some gatorade instead, more convenient maybe?

    Excellent idea. If you use CEE and you're done with mono, you can almost cut the grape juice, as CEE is way better absorbed. Unless you want the carbs for insulin spike..
