    Dextrose

    Well I'm going to order dextrose since everyone says thats all you need for PWO along with 40 grams of protein. Everyone says consume 80 grams of dextrose. Now the dextrose I found on the internet from 1fast400.com is like this........ Servings Per Container: 227
    Amount Per Serving % Daily Value
    Calories 15
    Calories from fat 0
    Total fat 0 G 0
    Total Carbohydrate 4 G 1
    Sugars 4 G
    Sodium 0 MG 0
    Protein 0 G

    Each serving contains 4 grams of carbs, so am i supposed to take 20 servings of this stuff????? And that is also 80 grams of sugar the amount of two cans of coke. Am I missing something, sorry first time buying dex.

    That is correct. It is pure sugar.

    Er....I would go to a local homebrew store and buy it cheap. You can get it for under $1 a pound.

    Yes and I just did some converting and 80 grams of carbs from dex is 0.52 cup. So I would have to fill a cup halfway of dex and then what? Pour water with it and down it?

    Mix it with your protein and drink at the same time. It is like candy.

    I drink Isopure after workout the liquid form, I'll probably just mix it in with that if it will fit.

    Ok I have just one more question. Isn't 80 grams of sugar too much? That is the equivalent of 2 pepsi's. I would think that is just too much sugar and isn't healthy. Not to mention a sugar rush and anxiety. Can someone answer this post, this is the last thing I don't understand.

    What is the exact point behind taking dextrose, just for some simple carbs. I am a bit confussed on this.

    Do a quick search. It spikes insulin , replenishes muscle glycogen etc....
    It's superior to other forms of carbs in this respect.
