    whats your simple carb ratio?

    what is the ratio of simple carbs that you takin after your slin injection?...10g per IU seems to be the norm, but i would like to "tight-rope" it as close as possible to avoid any spill over.

    10 iu, if you ask a diabetic (this was said somewhere else on this board as well, forget who said it though) when they are feeling low blood sugar they usualy only have a small candy or a few glucose tabs, so i think that people generaly overkill how many carbs they take in afterwords, but if you didnt get enough its not too hard to tell you need more...

    I get them at walmart myself, 2 bucks for a little roll of them, 4 for a bottle.

    6.5-7/IU for me now......it also has a ton to do with your own insulin sensitivty and your pwo BG level (which depends on pre w/o meals)

    Yes, the sugar in those types of drinks is dextrose, similar to cell-tech

    I am not really sure what supplement you talking about but it seems as if it is something liie a pre-mixed creatine/dextrose concoction. if that is the case then yes i would account for the sugar in the the phaspagen hp. i would just stick with creatine mono and dextrose that whey you can seperate them if needed to.

    get a bg meter before you go on this adventure. It will help cut out the guessing game

    thats what i intend to do...but i have a 2 lb jug of un opened creatine with transport (phosphagen hp) lying around from my natty days...but i think im just gonna get some of the solid muscle creatine mono...the price is **** good...that way i dont have to figure so much...just dex grams to figure out

    3-4 200 ml Glasses of Fruit Juice/Sodas (not diet!!) Post Work-Out (within 15 minutes of finishing training!!)
    is best and tastiest without destroying your teeth

    Fruit Juice is preferred since fruit has all kinds of interesting phytochemicals in it (beneficial to health and aid in fatloss and anti-catabolism)...

    But at Fitness First (my fitness --> Kind of like the Macdonalds of Gyms)
    Sodas are free and available so 3-4 glasses of Lemon Lime keeps me going (never tried glucosesuplementation with Insulin though, cause my Insulin/IGF/interleukin-15 cycle is still in the future )
