    hey guys..jus wondering if this sounded about right on the facts for dextrose..i picked some up at my local health food store..and there is no nutritional facts i searched the web..and came up with this thus far..
    28.4 g of dextrose = 110 kcal, 0 fats, 27 carbs...

    can u guys tell me if that sounds about right...
    and if much dextrose do i need to consume...and how to measure it.

    Yes. Sugars are carbohydrates, so the amount in grams of dextrose should be nearly the same as the grams of carbs. Also carbohydrates have 4 kcals/gram, so 27 x 4 is approximately 110 kcal. How much you take depends on your diet goals. I would definitely take 40-50g immediately after each workout though.

    1/2 cup is 75 grams of carbs.
