What kind of sugar do you use during workout and immediately afterwards?
I've been trying using white bread (if I have no sport drink like QNT energel) during workout and rice afterwards. Is it plain silly? I intend these to fight off cortisol (my training sessions are quite long) I am trying to pack on muscle while staying lean.
That's like saying exposure to sunlight instantly results in melanoma. It doesn't. And you'd be foolish to assume moderate exposure to carbs at appropriate times and in appropriate amounts will make you fat. Carbs, like sunlight, both present possible adverse reactions but it's up to the user to be accountable.
Buddy. You should do what I do. Post workout I add 2 tablespoons of dextrose in my protein shake. Depending on what type of workout I have just done, I might also add a PB jelly white bread sammich(if Ive had a very intense workout or had done some cardio).
I'd recommend having 50% of daily carbs at breakfast and 50% divided between your PWO shake and PWO meal. Then have P&F meals the rest of the day. This is ideal for cutting/maintenance, it's a guideline Layne Norton created a while ago and has always worked in my experience.
So you munch on white bread during a workout? I'd love o see that... If you don't have any problems with bloating, go for it! Personally, I don't tolerate a whole lot of solids during my workouts, maybe a few chocolate bars or a banana but nothing with a hint of fiber.
