Hi-carb postworkout shake, when cutting carbs??
I know this sounds like a funny question...But I am gonna start cutting carbs in a few weeks and Im just trying to cover all areas...Heres my situation:
My postworkout shake from my gym is a Labrada meal replacement (right now its like 25g carbs I believe, but Im going to swith to the Low Carb meal which has 12g carbs) about 8-14 oz apple juice, and a banana. The guy at the gym said that its a total of about 225-240g of carbs in that shake...
Now if Im gonna cut my carbs, should I still take that shake since its postworkout and my body needs an insulin spike from the carbs?? Should I lessen the carbs in that drink?? say get rid of the banana or somethin??
My carbs throughout the day will be low, But I like to have something like pasta before my workout for fuel (I dont get worried about the carbs there because I know they are gonna be burned from the workout), but my postworkout shake is what worries me....What are your opinions?? what would you change in the shake??

The "guy at the gym" can't count.

Perhaps he meant 225-240 calories from carbs (57-60 g)
Lean body=12g=48 cal
apple juice=20g=80 cal
adds up to 228 cals

swole how much carbs post workout do you recomend?
I right now consume 20g of dextrose along with 28g of whey protein during the workout and 20 after with 70g protein. Is that to little?

But I dont know I usualy gain alot of strenght even while cutting with that little. But if I can gain better with more and still lose as much fat then Im all for increasing carbs pwo

Johan....first off, drinking anything used for pwo DURING your workout is pointless. U create an insulin spike during the workout which can make you tired, and also ruins the spike u want AFTER the workout. As well, your dextrose or malto or mix should be about double of your whey protein as far as grams.....ex, 60 grams dextrose, 30 grams whey protein, not the other way around (protein higher than carbs).

But should I lower protein then or just begin to take 140g dextrose with the 70g protein? Is that much needed? Would 50-100 be ok?

so i guess the lethargic feeling after taking my pwo shake is caused by the insulin spike..hmm..i thought it was low glycogen..and i was figuring out how come i felt tired even after i consume the carbs..whahaha..silly me..

Sip it slowly, over the course of 15-20 mins, that should help the lethargy.

hmm i take 2 scoops of isolate (50 g) dont you think 100g of dex is a bit much, keeping in mind that my daily allowence is around 110?

totally agree with that...then i feel a nice vascular feeling about 20 minutes later...i dont get too lethargic either because i ingest a medium GI carb meal an hour or two later and this helps keep me feeling good....and the a$$ load of coffee i drink regularly.

haha..i drink really fast after my workout..guess i should slow down like sc said and see how it feels
