    How do I take dextrose??

    Nutrition Facts
    Serving Size 1.25 tsp (4g)
    Servings Per Container 227

    Calories 15
    Carb. 4g
    Sugar 4g

    I want to take 60g's of dextrose post workout.
    That would be 15 x 1.25 which would be 18.75 tsp. correct?

    yep your math is correct. But I think the grams of protein and grams of dextrose are pretty even as far as how much room they take up, so usually I put in about 2 scoops of whey, and about 2 scoops of dextrose (using the whey scoop) and I think I did the math a while ago and it seemed to work out good. And it's a heck of a lot quicker than measuring 18 times

    I feel you on that one! 18 times seems like a b%tch to do all the time. I'm going to see what it comes out to. That means a 2 pound bag of dex goes pretty quick then huh?

    2 scoops from your whey scooper comes out to 1/2 cup which is about 75 grams of carbs.

    thats no good bro. .b/c the carbs from fruit go to repair liver stores. . while the carbs in Dextrose repair muscle glycogen. . .so add more Dex if you wanna to 100
