    Im not a believer in the need for that type of carbs post workout. I tried it years ago and alll it did was mess up my stomach bad (the glucose/dextrose w/ my protein). I reallly dont think it makes a difference at all. Id stick to quality carbs. There is no good reason IMO to ingest that much sugar into my body ever. The insulin spike you generate naturally is not enough to make a difference in body composition at all. So my opinion is dont use it.

    I like oats, or if its a rather intense workout I like a plain idaho baked potato. (high enough on the GI scale to quickly replenish glycogen, but low enough I don't feel like I'm going to barf from sugar overload)

    I was thinking of doing 40g dextrose 1 hour before workout with 50g protein. Mainly for instant energy to fuel a workout then 25mins cardio. Then a chicken and rice as pwo meal.

    The only time I take in glucose is in the am after breaking the nightly fast(for energy) and it's only a banana w/my whey shk, and an apple/watermelon/or pineapple/etc... My sugar Only comes from fresh whole fruits and my complex carbs consist of Sweet potatoes, brown rice, oatmeal, fiber bar(late) etc... Great whole foods is the key(cuts out sodium as deli meats are very high in sodium)

    Post w/o I like whey shk w/banana, oatmeal(high fiber & high protein), 8 egg whites and beaters mixed....

    yes I like to do this. and even a simple cup of fruit juice. but I avoid juice generally and would opt for fruit and/or oats with a protein drink.
