Lots of people use low GI carbs (usually oats) after a WO, but WMS/vitargo are getting a very strong following as of late.

I was looking at Virtago and the cost$$ seems high 45$ for 25 servings and the NP Kwick Karb which looks to be the same thing is only about 20$ for 25 servings. Is virtago that much better than the Kwick karb version?

i like to down around 40g dextrose immediatley, or a little less if im cutting then 15 min later i do 2 cups water, 2 scoops ON whey, and 2 cups oatmeal in a blender works awesome.

What's really beneficial about a sports drink is the electrolytes, vitamins and minerals. Perhaps you should check out http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/1244/poseidon.html.

Sinner you are correct, I dont want all that sugar, and definetly not on a cutter. I checked out the link you posted and I think I will be trying this product. Looks like a great product and seems pretty cost effective also. I think I will try it and see how it goes. Thanks for the info bro.

Last I checked WMS is a high glycemic carbohydrate, why would this lower insulin?

What the person is suggesting, is that since elevated insulin levels may contribute to fat gain, WMS will provide energy without adversely adding to adipose tissue.

I guess right now we are just making assumptions as to how insane lifter's cutting plans look. I will agree that pre and post workouts are probably the best times to take in carbs; however, IMO taking in slow-carbs pre-workout leads to a better workout in the gym, and since the carbohydrates are still going to be in your system by the end of the workout, there's no rush for post-workout carbs replenishment.

Hey, sinner. My pre-work out meal usually is 20-23 grams of whey protein and corn flakes with skim milk. P/WO is 40 or so grams of whey protein,oats and water made into a shake. The rest of my diet is pretty basic, tuna,grilled chicken breast,fat free cottage cheese and egg whites. I have came to the conclusion, from the info I have received here that I dont need that post work out sports drink. Thanks for the info bro.

I take in dextose postraining. Recently ive been doing a fruit shake. Banana, strawberries, 2 cups skim mixed with my whey iso-100. I dont want to get in a big debate here. I think the only time to get sugary carbs in is postraining and or if your working outside all say long doing physical work.
Lane Norton said something about dont take in fruitjuice(this would be fruits too right?) because it has frutose in it.
anyways whatever Im doing is working well for me.

It will get into the bloodstream, it just takes a little longer. As you can see it just heads back to the low vs high GI debate. Don't forget to factor in that fruit has some great micro-nutrients; dextrose has, well, you get the picture...

i have tried every variation as many of you have. i will have 30g WMS w/ 6g Creatine Mono and 20g BCAA @ about 3/4 through my workout... When i get home i will have a 40g Whey shake w/ Oats and a little PB and a little natural fruit preserves...
seems to work for me pretty well...
good luck guys
