As of know i drink 12 oz of grape juice and there's 12 ounces of milk in my shake do i need more carbs then this immediately following my workouts or is this too much or just right?

12oz grape juice prob has around 60g of carbs and 12oz milk has roughly 18g of carbs so a total of 78g, your pretty lean so you could probably use a little more, maybe a banana or oatmeal or something like that. but grape juice and milk.... jeez how do you not throw up.Originally Posted by glenihan
I would keep it to 6 oz of grape juice or less and add in 1/2 cup of oatmeal. Do a search on post workout carbs there's an old thread on it somewhere that's pretty good, a lot of arguing though.
haha well i don't mix the grape juice and milk Omar, i drink them separately and the milk is in my shake
i've read so many contrasting opinions and some contrasting supposed facts so i don't know what to believe about high v low GI carbs post workout i do know that trying to eat oatmeal after a workout would damn near kill me i never have anything resembling an appetite after my workouts
Every time I've read anything on this subject, I get many different opinions from different people. I dont know if there is a right or wrong way to do it. I guess you just gotta try different things to find out what works for you and what does not work.Originally Posted by glenihan
Hmm.. I'm always starving after a workout.Originally Posted by glenihan
well you're clearly doing something wrong than Jas
just kidding i don't know i've just never had much of an appetite after hardcore physical activity
i guess i'm gonna just stick with what i've been doing the results seem good
