    $hit load of smarties

    ok so we all know its dextrose and im taking in about 100gms of them for my pws. 4 rows its only 25 grams.. 8 its 50grms..and so on
    so its a lot of freeken smarties to take in. i try bleanding some and eating some but its so much that my mouth even starts to kinda burn.
    does anyone have any sugestions as far as how to take them the easiest way???
    and if theres none then w/e ill just suk it up.

    ughh...buy some dextrose. lol.

    seriously though, my friend does this and he just throws them in ice water before his workout (so they have time to dissolve) then adds a scoop of protein afterwards...then pounds it.

    seems like a crazy waste of time to me...cuz i think dex is cheaper. but hey, to each their own

    kool man...to tell you the truth i have never experience smarties or even just dextrose before. always used to use fast acting carbs such as white rice or fruits. i knew along about dextrose but never actually bought any dumb i guess i hope this is gonna make me feel and look better.

    do the orange smarties taste any different in the states and canada?

    in the UK the orange ones are different...they have reached cult status here as the 'bastard child' of the box

    You could half the amount of smarties and replace the other half with oats or something?

    is not that its hard. i look at it as the only candy i eat. but just after so many of them because its 12 rows!!!! mu gums begin to hurt. today im gonna go with disolving them in water before i work out so when i get back they are ready for me to mix with my protein.

    Oh I hear ya... just giving a different possibility. Some people eat like a banana, etc PWO. Carbs are the name of the game, so hit your goals. If the Dex is working for you, hit it.

    well thats the thing bro...bannanas have always worked for me. but i know that dex goes straight to re-store your muscle glycogens. so just 3 days ago i turned into smarties. im gonna give it a try see how i respond to them. hopefully good. i feel great after my pwo but that might be just placebo effect.
