    I take it intra- and post-workout.
    Intra-workout with Xtend and post-workout with dextrose and peptopro.

  7. My favorite carbs would be steamed yams and or steamed potatoes. So delicious with some eggs after a nice work out.

  8. My favorite carbs is pasta, hands down. I currently stick to whole weat rotini.

    I'm a carbohydrate addict with a very sweet tooth - although I go through phases re "favourites", it generally doesn't really matter what the carbohydrates are, LOL

    Glucose is the fastest acting and best, IMO. Otherwise, use BCAAs - even though not a carbohydrate.

    BCAAs are a "staple" - although, technically, if you get enough in your diet, they are not required.

    Most BCAA products contain EAA, so it's not too much of an issue whether I use BCAA or EAA.

    I use LG's BC+EAA, which covers all bases, and as can be seen in my logs, I use 10.5-21g 3-4 times daily (with one dose post-training) - bear in mind that I no longer use protein powder, with my BC+EAA and Muscle Gels as my only source of supplemented protein. However, when I use them is irrelevant to you, as you should use them when it suits YOU best.

    You will have to ask Eric Marchewitz (aka LegalGear) or an LG representative that question - once you've checked the product write-up (since it may include it in).

    No worries For future reference, if you have a query about any product, then the first place you should inquire is with the company or a company representative.
