    cutting and sugar


    I'm trying to lose some body fat and was wondering if taking like 60 grams of dextrose post workout would be beneficial or not

    It's not going to harm you (and the best time to take in simple sugars IS post-training, to help with muscle glycogen replenishment and recovery), but if you were that concerned, you could cut the amount down a little - remember that fat loss is more dependent on total energy intake/deficit averaged out over about a week, as opposed to a single day.

    Even on TKD, PWO carbs are permitted which is a serious, strict fat loss diet. I think aslong as you train hard, PWO carbs are very unlikely going to contribute to fat gain and should probally be one of the last things you change/cut out.
