PWO meal... is this right?
Just want to check that I have this right.
PWO meal: 40g whey protein, 40g dextrose and 40g maltodextrin.
1 hour - 1 & ½ hour later: meal with protein (eg chicken breast) and carb (eg. Brown rice) and veggies.
Also, where do I get maltodextrin? A health food store?

sounds ok to me... Maltodextrin is available online or at whole food stores.

i think 80 grams might be a bit much tho.. i would go with 60.. but as everthing here it depends on how big you are..

right now I'm in a bulking cycle. For PWO meal I've always had protein and fruit.
Thanks Elliot. I asume you're recommending 60 grams because of my size. Makes sense.
Are there any substitues for Dextrose?

maltodex may not be as important as dextrose, also some online bulk food stores offer dextrose for cheap prices or an online brewery offer it for less. i also saw a post that PWO shake should be .8g carbs per KG of bodyweight and i have been using this so far with good results. keep in mind KG is pounds divided by 2.2

looks good to me. i personally prefer to have a protein/ 50g dex with a bottle of gatorade. ive cut out the malto and made up for it in my PPWO.

the malto in ppwo is a great idea, how ever i think if you have the dex the gatorade is useless and waste of calories since it isnt pure dex it also contains fructose which is basicly useless sugar.. but if you enjoy it and it helps you stomach your shakes then do whats neccessery.. i drink gatorade when i have a complete carb carving..
