I use to use fruit juice like grape before I got into the dex scene

honey is about 32 on the GI scale...even lower than oats I think....which aint a big deal....medium-high gi are both fine so is low...but im not a fan nemore
I would avoid the soda cuz of the protein absoprtion rates

Frozen juice concentrate works well also. Using 80 grams of fast-acting carbs from honey is a little overwhelming.

why on earth would you advise to use sugar
sugar is never good at any time of the day and it wont replenish lost glycogen
also fruits contain glucose as well as fructose - some more than others so there is nothing wrong with fruit PWO
you dont need to spike your insulin levels pwo anyway, you can use low gi carbs just as effectively without the added potential of fat gain

don't mean to hijack, but i'm trying to post this and it wont lemm start a new thread...can someone kindly copy and paste this in a new thread for me. i found it intresting..
so i was reading through Muscular Development and came upon an intrestin article..here it is.........CARBS AND RECOVERY Traditionally, it's been recommended that athletes ingest high GI carbs PWO...b/c the are broken down easily and increase rapidly through the flow of glucose into the bloodstream. This glucose can be converted into glycogen..yada yada yada we all know the song and dance.........A recent study by Dr.Stevenson and coworkers investigated the metabolic response to high gi or low gi meals consumed during recovery from prolonged exercise. Meal were provided 30 mins and two hours following cessation of excerise. The authors concluded "the glycemic index of the carbohydrates consumed during the immediate post-exercise period might not be important as long as sufficient carbs are consumed."
different anyway whats ur feedback?

This is the point I have been trying ot get across all along. Hi Gi carbs are not needed, because there is not one shred of evidence that says that elevated plasma isulin increases portein synthesis, most studies show that protein synthesis peaks at up to 24hr post exercise. Not to mention that there is a period of rapid glycogen synthesis post excerise that does not require insulin , this lasts 60-90 min.

i wouldnt use it
i dont even use dex anymore for the reasons that giantz stated above
sugar is basically a drug - not a food - it has no nutrition benefits and so is just empty calories
