the ppwo meal really can depend on whether you are bulking or cutting. But PWO, you want to take in about 40g whey with 80g dextrose or some other form of simple carbohydrate. No more than an hour and half after that you want to take in some sort of lean protein and complex carbohydrate (for me it is a large chicken breast, and medium sweet potato)....yummy.

Where are people getting 40 whey and 80 dextrose?
Is this for a 145 lb. person as well as a 260 lb. person? Just curious, as I see this "ratio" thrown around all the time to everyone, and surely everyone does not have the same exact stats.

Yea I agree...... Elliot and I were talking about this the other day. There is no need for a smaller person to use 80g of dextrose. I myself am about 190 pounds and I only use 25g of protein & 51g of dextrose and I have been growing just fine.

as for ppwo i always go with a lean protein (chicken breast or tuna) and a low GI carb like oatmeal, rice, potatoes, yams.
try some different things out, to each his own

Personally at your size I think it is too much. I weigh a little more than you and I use less dextrose / whey and still get results. If you aren't putting on any fat then keep doing it, but I would think a little less would work jsut as well for ya

Its easy to just use 1/2 a cup. I've been doing it for a while and haven't put much fat on. However when I was cutting I only used about 50 grams.

51g of dextrose is a 1/3 of a cup. Just as easy if you have measuring cups
But yea I hear ya on the bulking thing. I saw your pics and you look good bro, just keep doing whatever you are doing
