Substitute bannana for Dextrose PWO??
Would a scoop of whey and a bannana for PWO meal? Would it be as effective as Dextrose?
Can I eat again 1 hour after PWO? This would be my last meal. It would be lean protien/greens.

no for the banana, not very many carbs there or the right type for that matter. and yes eat about 1 1/2 hours after your pwo but make it lean protein and carbs

well to get the amount of carbs you need after workout...
i think you might need more than 1 bannana..

A peice of fruit would be fine but you will need some other carbs as well.

I use to do dex/fruit for a while but now I do just dextrose. You'll be fine with fruit but has to be more than one.

Why is a bannana the wrong carb? What beside dex would be the right carb?
make it lean protien and carbs
This is my last meal for the day. It will ne between 8-9P.M. My current goal is to drop body fat. I was thinking of staying away from carbs at this time. What do you think?

High "gi" carbs are critical after an intense workout. You need to restore your glycogen levels - FAST. Dextrose works best for a quick insulin spike, but gatorade and sweet tarts are both good alternatives.
I would shy away from a banana since it contains a lot of fiber. Fiber tends to slow down protein absorption. Remember you want a high "gi" carb to quickly shuttle protein to your muscle cells.

They both restore glycogen levels at the same rate...only one way is healthier

To each his own bro. I find higher "gi" carbs tend to work more effectively for preserving muscle while trying to drop bodyfat. My muscles tend to look a lot harder as opposed to looking "skinny" and flat.
Honestly, keep doing whatever it is that works for you. Everyone responds differently to different foods. Its trial and error.
