Thats a half cup too much. Good lord are you trying to have a permanent tire around your midsection?

What's you bf%? I'v never heard anyone taking that much pwo.Originally Posted by orvise
9% how much do you guy take
i figure 1/2 cup is about 75 carbs
9%? Pretty good.
1 cup - 8oz, 1/2 cup 4oz ~ 100grams sugar.
I normally take 10g - 30g of malto/sugar.
i konw alot of people who take 75 or more grams of carbs pwo
1/2 cup is 75 grams, yes. Dextrose does work great for many people, but as w/anything you have to experiment w/it. Bobo and I debated the use of dextrose like mad, and determined it's an individual thing. All my clients use it, and well, look at them!
125 grams of protein, 50 grams Dex, 10 grams Micro Creatine with 20 oz grape juice for my post shake. Also 2 bananas and 2 potatoes, 10 units Slin...
Wow that's a ****load of carbs, In-Human.
When bulking I use 4 TBSP with my shake. That equals aprox 30g.
even for a complete monster, i would say thats an excess of both protein and carbs bro. Im a leaner fella, taking in 50g carbs and 30-35g protein, w/ a follow up whole meal an hour after. (equal amount of carbs/protein approx)Originally Posted by In-Human
damn human,how big are you?
IMO that's too much of everything especially with the added juice, bananas and taters. You're going to be pissing most of that protein and creatine away.Originally Posted by In-Human

thats great bro,what was your pwo before ?Originally Posted by goes4ever
also fructose pw isnt the ideal carb source. how long have you been using this mix and how has your results been?Originally Posted by BingeAndPurge
Well I take in 50gs of protein 80gs of dextrose and 5 gs of creatine post workout weather I'm bulking or cutting. Also when I'm using slin I actualy do it all over again 1 hour later. By the way I beleive your bodyweight probably plays a big role and this works great for me at 250lbs.
It can "work" either way you do it (high GI carb or low), but all I have to say after over a year or two of reading low GI threads (usually with Bobo somewhere in there) is that I've done both ways and see absolutely no point in consuming that many carbs (especially high GI) post workout.
When I first started lifting around age 15, I didn't use carbs PW, just protein. Years later I started adding carbs PW, and about 2 years ago I dropped them. My results: no real benefit from PW carbs for me, and pointless amounts of sugars being ingested.
