I know carbs make you fat especially the simple cars but I also know it's good to take carbs after workout, but does it matter which carbs to take without getting fat ? and how many grams ?
someone told me to take gatorade after workout, isnt that all sugar and crap ?
as a blanket statement you are incorrect stating carbs make you fat. look at rosie is she fat? no way. and ive seen her talk about how much she eats.
as for your other question many will answer differently. i personally have a mix of carbs post wo like oatmeal, banana, h20, and whey all blended. i know a guy from my gym and hid post wo is 16oz milk with a couple spoons of honey
Carbs, just like any excess calories, can lead to fat gain (though arguably carbs may be able to do it a bit easier; particularly excess sugars). That's a whole other Nutrition 101 lesson that I don't want to get into here.
As far as what you take post-workout, as with virtually every other thing: it all depends on YOUR current goals.
If you're looking to cut, opt for whey isolate post-workout and an hour and a half later or so, take in some healthy complex carbs and protein from whole food. This will keep natural GH from being blunted and allow for for fat-loss.
If you're looking to gain, add in some carbs with your post-shake. I like to grind oats and use those in there. You can also add in some fruit for healthy simple sugars.
All in all, there are WAY too many variables to give ONE answer to this question. It depends on your body, how it acts/responds, and what your goals are.
*There will never be ONE right answer to this question, no matter how many different times it is asked. I've asked it myself when I was starting out and I've learned this.

Whether you use carbohydrates post-workout is going to differ depending on the individual. There are several trains of thought, including no carbohydrates post-training, to Growth Hormone impulses. However, I have always said (and this comes from being an athlete and actually caring about athletic performance) is to have ~50g of carbohydrates post-training. Simple carbohydrates are the best because they get into the bloodstream faster, but I actually prefer a mix of simple and complex carbohydrates. If you're going to use only simple carbohydrates immediately post-training, then have a decent meal ~30 minutes after that containing complex carbohydrates.
In the end, what you do should be specific for YOU, and the best option for YOU!

Sure simple sugars can be incorporated if they fit your macros, but the speed with which they are assimilated seems to be irrelevant, so using that as a reason to use simple sugars is outdated.
Re sports, you'll find the simple post-training very much still practiced.
Also like I said, you have to find what works right for YOU as an individual - never mind what is conventional or supposed to be the best.
I agree you will find it still practiced. But there is enough broscience going around to practice many things that may not be the most beneficial (such as fasted cardio).
I think following the trend of legit scientific studies should be the basis for any nutrition and supplementation protocol
That, but also personal experience, finding what works best for the specific individual in question. Individual differences must always be taken into account and what may be "beneficial" for one individual is not always going to be beneficial for another, regardless even of the "scientific evidence" for it. There are always going to be the anomalies to everything as well - trust me when I say I know that from experience!
Fasted cardio for fat loss is not better than non-fasted, I know, but some people prefer to train fasted - I know I do (I don't like having food in my stomach when training, even though when I was cycling I would chuck back several thousand calories and then go out training immediately afterwards), and I personally don't notice a difference in performance re fasted or non-fasted training.
The most recent scientific evidence suggests it is not the best. I also feel that when asked a question people should be given the full scope of information. And I am relating such to the poster who asked the question in the first place.
I take two things post workout.... Recon and UP 2.0. Covers all of my needs and is working for me. I will be switching to Chained Reaction but keeping to UP 2.0 Cinammon Roll(taste so damn good, even in water).
Now im confused, somone says complex carbs, someone else says simple, the rosie girl says whatever that works for you, o really ? loool
IS THERE Anyyyyyyyy research that gives only ONE ANSWER ?
It doesnt matter, hit your macros and get over pre/post blah blah blah bs. If you wanna get super anal go with complex per aragons research as stated earlier
It's strawberry season here. So that is what I use at the moment. Yummy!
Post workout can really be whatever floats your boat.
