    PostWorkout and feeling Hypo...??


    Whats up guys.....Lately I've noticed that about 2hrs after my PostWorkout Shake I start feelin HypoGlycemic.......Dizziness, Sweating, Shaking, etc.

    I always try to consume a solid Protein/Carb meal approx 1.5hrs after my PostWorkout shake, but sometimes I'm with a client and lose track of time......Just looking for someone to elaborate on this and give a little insight.

    Right now I'm only consuming Carbs on my 5 training days....My 2 off days have minimal Carbs.
    Here is a typical Carb day.....
    Meal 1: Approx 60g Carbs - WWPasta + Banana
    Meal 2: Approx 20g Carbs - 2% Milk (1-1.5hr PreWorkout)
    Meal 3: Approx 70g Carbs - 20gDextro/20gMaltoBlend + Banana (Immediate PostWorkout)
    Meal 4: Approx 40g Carbs - BrownRice + BlackBeans

    With my PostWorkout Shake I also take........
    200mg RALA
    200mcg Chromium PolyNicotinate
    1000mg Cinnamon
    10mg Vanadyl Sulfate

    Might be your issue. You may be shuttling to many sugars to your muscles immediately post workout, creating a shock state in your blood stream of very little glucose to be available to the brain. Either increase your carbs, or decrease those supplements.

    This^^ I wouldn't even recommend GDAs post lift to be honest. Adiponectin should be really high and like 30-40g of carbs should be enough to get insulin going post lift. GDAs are more beneficial with a pre meal or a heavy carb meal.

    Being that PostWorkout is 20gDextrose + 20gMalotdextrin + 1Banana (70ish Grams Carbs) wouldn't you say thats somewhat on the "heavy" side as a carb meal??
    I've been thinking of moving the Cinnamon to my PreWorkout regimen, and dropping the Vanadyl and Chromium Post.

    Agreed. I know this happening all too well. I also am mildly hypoglycemic. Very shakey, anxious, heavy breathing, cant think right, pale...

    I agree on the overdoing it on sugar, yeah you need it postworkout but it might be too much on the system and your causing an overreaction. You dont need the GDA's as your body's already in that state of insulin sensitivity but keep it light if you chose to keep em.

    You can't expect the body to just adjust to normal blood sugar immediately upon intake - homeostasis takes time. The blood brain barrier needs to maintain a ratio [brain] = 60-70%[blood]

    If normally he doesn't consume carbs/sugars what he feels it might be just the insulin spike.
    And btw, you don't *need* carbs post workout.
    There are studies showing how even swishing some sugars around in your mouth (yes without swallowing)
    it elicits insulin spike, so go figure..

    All food ellicit some insulin response. Protein will still cause a hormone release. Obviously protein and carbs will stimulate a higher response. What about something like blueberries or honey?

    I don't do carbs immediately post. If anything a whey shake then a protein/carb meal later on. A huge insulin spike isnt necessary. I don't know about being detrimental but the "Nutrient Timing" concept is lightly noted. Post workout nutrition is for replenishing vitamins, minerals, and aminos lost during the onslaught. Growth happens during the other 22 hours if the day. I'll have my carbs then.

    this, if speaking of carbs supps. (dextrose, maltodextrin, powdered oats)
    If you can, have a meal. If you can't, have some whey.

    I would also take more carbs with your preW meal and less with the postW.

    All support to the whole foods post workout. I'd rep you if I had a computer. I've found that, in my experience, excessive hunger and caloric intake post workout comes from inadequate nutrition prior to.

    OP, Have you had a fasted glucose or an HBA1C taken lately?
    You do NOT need more garbage simple sugars post work out to spike insulin. You are stressing your pancreas and asking for problems in the future.
    Look up reactive hypoglycemia.

    Its the supplementation post workout. You're already insulin sensitive post workout no need for GDA's. Ill repeat this again. Its the post workout supplementation. Stop taking those post workout and symptoms will stop
