    most contain nothing but high amounts of sugar.

    your better off making your own using whey, oats and natty peanut butter.

    2 scoops of whey, 1 cup of raw oats, 2 tbsp natty pb mixed in ice\water is a good quality, high calorie meal replacement

    Cool, thanks
    What's a good time to take that and how many times a day. I'm looking to bulk up. Down to 185 now and just started my new cycle

    depends on the rest of your diet and your total caloric intake for the day.

    first off, i would dump the english muffin, white rice and yogurt. all too high on the GI if you are trying to keep body fat gain minimal on your bulk

    as far as the shake i suggested, you can just throw it in anywhere as a meal replacmenet. also, you might consider waking up earlier so you can get all your calories in with out eating large meals too close together.

    the shake i recommended is customizeable. if you dont need that many more calories then cut the amounts down to 1/2 cup oats and 1 tbsp natty pb

    no kidding, I thought that would be one of the prime times to take it.
    Why is that?

    I use ISOPure as my whey. Where can I find and how much maltodextrin and dextrose should I mix in with my protein?

    Thanks

    the general rule of thumb is 2.5g per 10 pounds body weight for a cut, and 5g per 10 pounds body weight for a bulk

    you can adjust this according to your liking, but it gives you a baseline

    I cannot find dextros or maltodextrin anywhere. I tried GNC and a health food store. Where can I get Natty peanut butter?

    Personally, for a premade post workout shake I love Prolab's Nlarge 2 in the 10lb bucket. Chocolate in water is heaven.

    Hi Psycho

    I found the dextrose and maltodextrin off the net. Got it today
    It seems that 2.5-5.0 g per 10lbs of body weight seems like a lot.
    Is that per shake? That would mean a 200lb guy would use up to 100g of both dextrin and dextrose per post workout shake....
    Wow thats a lot of sugar. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks

    for a 200 pound male on a bulk the suggested intake is 5 g of carbs per 10 pounds body weight. so yes, that is 100g of carbs. but you dont have to take in that much if you dont want. scale it back to 4 g of carbs per 10 pounds body weight.

    and the dextrose and maltodextrin is taken 50/50. in other words if you are 180 pounds and need 90 g of carbs then take in 45 g of malto and 45 g of dext

    NLarge 2 is definately good. Also, SNI's Xtreme Mass (chocolate) is really good. Plus, you can get it in a 15lb bucket.
