    Honey question

    As you all realize dextrose is a big thing right now. So of course, the store I buy it at was out. Won't have it for another week. So I was forced to buy some honey for my post work out shake. Anyways, the label doesn't have any sort of nutritional information on it or anything, so I was just wondering how much of this I should use post work out. Today I used 3 table spoons hoping this was equal to about 45g of dextrose??? Anyone know?

    It's hard to tell unless you can post your weight and type of activity. Got this from a site that deals with sports medicine- "Also, dont dilute this with other liquids. Also, do not drink any other liquids, besdies water, immediately before or after taking this supplement. Give yourself approx. 25 minutes before and after. To do so may keep this supplement from working properly."

    I would say that 2-3 tablespoons would be sufficient.

    I'm sure it won't be too detrimental to you as a temporary thing, but honey does have a relatively low GI for a sugar...you might actually be better off using some other form of refined carbohydrate...I used to eat cornflakes post workout. I believe the GI is pretty close to 100. Or there's always powdered gatorade, which contains a good amount of dextrose.

    Or sweet tart candies work just as well.
