Post Workout Nutrition Question
« on: September 08, 2018, 12:44:14 PM »
What's better post-workout, carbs or protein?

Looking to kick things up a notch and wondering what's better for recovery...

Does not matter unless you get real lean.  Cmoore taught me a lot about this.

When you get lean enough, you can start taking advantage of carb manipulation with simple carbs targeted post workout.

Otherwise....just get you required foods in for the day whenever they come.

Guess Flex doesn't have to be concerned. 8)  Seriously though Flex, why the big concern over nutrition?  You're getting your share, and someone else's share too.  ;D  I'm a rolly polly little guy, and eat like a big man trapped in a little mans body, so if I know for damn sure I'm getting enough.

Burger King.

Also, Core Nutritionals makes a product called PWO, which is formulated for exactly that. Post-Workout

What a bunch of over priced and useless (to most people) supplements.

So ingredients:

Whey (ok...not bad)
Leucine (not a bad idea when you are cal restricted and not taking in a lot of carbs)

OH wait  now the good part.

Sugar, sugar sugar....

Dextrose (pretty much a GI of 100.   Directly enters your blood stream)
"Carb 10" Basically corn starch.   Enters even FASTER than pure glucose.
"cluster Dexterin"   Maybe a fancy word for malto dextrin?.....sugar and cheap.


So what is the point.....to have a guy who is over 10% range start ingesting simple sugars in volume for an insulin response?.....really?.... Insulin although being highly anabolic also leads to fat deposition.   When you are lean enough, you can take advantage of higher levels in insulin sensitivity and have much more favourable nutrient partitioning.   But a dude at 15% plus BF will NEVER totally carb deplete and does not need to replace carbs post workout.  They have so much energy still floating around in their blood and free form fatty acids, that being "depleted" is just not going to happen.


So now....the cost.

Approx 2.30/serving for this wonder supplement.

I buy cold process whey isolate for 115/15 lbs.  That works out to about .02/g

So the 24 g of protein will set me back .$48.
Cornstarch and dextrose will set me about another .04 and leucine another .03.

So for about .52 I too can become a super hero with this great post workout blend.




FWIW,  this is not a "bad" supplement.  It is WAY overpriced for sugar and whey though.   It should come with a description though that it is all but useless to anyone without a full set of abs and engaging in high-intensity training for 60-90 minutes.  But that would not sell them a lot of supplements....

I think the question is, am I making him eggs or oatmeal to bring to work for breakfast - or a bit of both?
