    I eat a handful of gummy bears and a whey shake immediately post w/o. Then when I get home Its chicken and pasta.

  3. I drink a shake by American Bodybuilding called "Mass Recovery",.. contains 35gms of protein and 60 gms of carbs, mostly maltodextrin. From my understanding, malto is sucked up by the muscles. About an hour later, I eat a balanced meal, still with some quick carbs!
    Think training's hard,. try losing!

  4. oats and glucose mix with whey taken with an insulin mimiker

  5. oatmeal or wheat bread. Currently off the WMS wagon myself.

  6. i've always stuck with good ole dext/malt

  7. i prefer granola with some ff milk plus a whey shake. in granola like 1/2 to 2/3 of the carbs are from oats with the rest from sugar. plus its delicious. sometimes il toss a half a banana or some blueberries with it

  8. old fashioned oats..........

  9. to the 1s that take oats, do u believe oats replenish glycogen quick enough to choose it over malt or dext

    Your pre workout meal

    comprehension of the highlighted areas are of utmost importance

  12. Carb sources PWO include: (pick 1)
    1) 2 granola bars
    2) 2 cups of light-n-fit yogurt
    3) 1/2C oats
    4) 1C ff milk
    5) 2 small boxes of raisins

    add any of the above to

    2scoops whey/casein

    Ive never done the WM thing myself. Always just used whole foods as my carb sources. I dont think your insulin needs to be spiked that much quicker by eating pure sugars

    Sometimes i even drink a 1/2 gallon of FF milk. Has the perfect combination of sugars, whey/casein all in one drink. Tried and true whole food there

    thanks

    Hi read what you suggested with interest especially this part "Increasing the glucose content of skeletal muscle (in
    the form of glycogen) is beneficial for gaining muscle, but remember that GLUT-4
    transporters also exist on fat cells and therefore insulin secretion promotes the storage of
    glucose in both skeletal muscle and fat cells. " Just wondering if insulin mimikers like alpha lipoic acid, d-pinotol etc can make you fat if taken with carbs?

  14. Try cream of bckwheat or some other complete protein grain quinoa amaranth

    You know it mate Some people take these boards too seriously.

  20. i always do whey/dex/malt for after and whey/dex for during. read a bunch of trials on post workout supplementation and the improvement waxy maize provides does not justify the high price. I would definitely not rely on oatmeal or milk post workout, the body needs to replenish glycogen so much quicker, and it helps you stay anabolic during the hours following. oatmeal has a GI of about 55-60 so I only use it as preworkout. after workouts you can do a range of things however: I often stop at the supermarket after the gym and while I shop I eat their precut watermelon (I know its a waste of money lol) and you can also snack on dates, they have a GI of 100 just like glucose.. I guess because it is so sugary.

    gummy bears after lifting??? I guess yellow-5, red-10 and table sugar will make you huge!!!!!! I mean you can pretty much eat anything after lifting/upon wakeup because of how starved your body is, but come on candy?

  21. Honey

    Oats are not a good PWO meal. Oats make a better preworkout meal because its a slow digesting carb providing your body with fuel throughout your workout. After workouts you need some fast digesting carbs to spike that insulin and cram those nutrities and glycogen into your muscles.

  24. Brown Rice baked beans and pineapple in wirchester sauce mmmm

  25. it is still not good enough, I dont care how alkaline your rice is!!! the body is completely depleted after workouts, especially if you go all out when you lift. it is going to take way too long for you to digest the rice/raisins/oats/quinoa anything!!! liquid is the only way to get your glycogen back to normal. try an experiment: supplement with whey/dex/malt and see how your energy levels are after a hard workout, and then try to choke down some rice and oats right after your workout. see how it feels if you dont believe me. food is way superior to any liquid supplements except for right after workout.
