Thank you very much for your help. Friend Please can I tell you to replace the liquid carbohydrate supplements after training, because here are very expensive, so that maltodextrin?

Carbs are too easy to eat. I don’t see a point in supplementing.
Agreed for almost all use cases except maybe for athletes pre-event where a low osmolality carb source can provide fast digestion without GI issues (such as after a weigh in.) Other than that, food is cheaper, easier, and generally tastier :)

I’ve been using two different carb supplements recently. Like a protein shake it’s just a quick easy add to add to your existing diet. Currently I am using Super Carb by NutraBio and EFX Karbolyn. Both taste great. I will typicaly use 3-4 times a day adding 800 calories and 200g of carbs without ever feeling full or bloated

I agree as I can hardly believe there is a market for a carb supp. Seriously just go eat some raw honey, fruit, whatever you need.

I always thought carb supplements were useless but I long time ago I used one which I believe was waxy maize. I really enjoyed it and gave me no bloat or anything. Had good energy in the gym too. The sale was buy protein and get a tub free , but it was so long ago and haven’t purchased one since.

I’ve tried coconut water and such but nothing felt like it. Usually just straight sugar will drop my blood sugar too quickly. That’s why I like most of the carb powders as they are a steady release yet digest very well

I still say it’s unnecessary and would save my money.

There are a lot of low GI carb sources in real food that won't spike. You just have to find what works for you depending on your training needs. Raw honey is always a good source for anyone as it's natural slow and steady release. This is why many people also take it at night to keep blood sugar stead through sleep.

Not really compared to supps that are going to up the cost of anything substantially. You can buy it in bulk cheap and especially if you have farmers markets etc.

Sweet potatoes, kiwi, red berries of most any kind, jasmine rice, cream of rice/wheat, steel cut oats are also all going to be extremely cheap bulk and are lower GI.
