    pwo meal on keto

    Is it still recommended to have proper pwo meal after weights while on keto? The protein and dex. 2:1? Im having difficulty measuring this out. If I were to consume 23g of protein than would I need 44g dex? I think that is correct right?

    Or do I just have protein after workout and no dex?

    I do eat carbs of cours in the form of green Veggi's. But I have heard that I am still supposed to drink my dex after a workout that my body will use the carbs so quick that it wont throw me outta ketosis. That is why I am asking if this is correct and If I should be drinking the proper PWO

    Some people can get away with up to 50g dex post workout without getting thrown out of keto.
    Mainly bacause its the right carb to get absorbed by the muscles and your muscles are primed for absorption. As long as your liver doesnt take any in you will still be in keto. you gotta experiment try take like 20g then work your way up see how much you can get away with. Most people can take up to 30g no worries. Use the keto strips as a guide.
    And yea any amount of dex will help you spare as much muscle as possible which is a good thing.

    Bro.... you're either doing Keto or you're not. When I do keto, I keep it to less than 20g of carbs per day. In no way, shape or form could you stay in Ketosis with a proper 2:1 ratio of dex/pro. Just hammer a 50g protein shake after your workout.... it's not ideal, but you'll stay in ketosis this way, which will prevent you from adding fat with all of the fat you'll be eating in place of carbs.
