    Substitute Dextrose for gaterade

    I was wondering, for the PWO meal can I change dextrose for gateraid powder? I was told that its pretty much the same.

    Thanks pimp but I live in Canada and they don't ship here. For a 80g serving you would have to use 8 scoups right?

    1/2 cup of dextrose is 75 grams of carbs.

    An no, gatorade/powerade/etc., is NOT the same as dextrose and does not carry out the processes that dextrose does.

    I've no idea what your dietary requirements are.

    Dextrose has it's place if you have done activity that demands you utilize it for recovery.

    If you choose to not use it, that's your decision and you are more than free to choose to do what you wish.

    What I mean to say is how much of it do I need for about 80g of dex? Not sure if all the carbs is from the dex or not.

    Well, seeing as 1/2 cup is 75 grams of carbs, if you need 80 grams use 1/2 cup and a "pinch" or two between your fingers.
