    PWO carbs

    i heard some BB drink pop and things after their workouts to get some quick acting carbs. Would it be alright to eat some candy after a workout? I take dex and gatorade now after workouts.

    I don't know what smarties are made out of. But i do know that sweet tarts are made mostly of dextrose and maltodextrin, and they taste alot better than smarties. Sweet tarts are by far the best candy PWO carb substitute for dex/malto that i know of...

    Bulk powder dextrose is the easiest and cheapest way IMO...

    Mine tastes like liquid candy. I love it. Who needs a cheat day, when you can drink one of these everyday you workout...

    did you ever catch that thread title " great hook up " or something like that? It was a hook up to dex... from a lab... it was free.. so was shipping... great freebie, it is still worth a try. I got mine and mix it with muscle milk and it really tastes like honey... mmm anywho, if you are desperate like "polangtum" said get 'em one way or another... if you have nothing.. a can of coke or 7 up will go a long way.
