Jay…1. You’re right about serving sizes, but I would imagine anyone who’s invested in Surge has a decent amount of lean mass on his/her frame and thus the serving recommendations on the bottle should be relatively accurate; 2. As far as water content, you’re probably best off–in terms of gastric emptying–by making the solution at least 10%, if not less (around 8%). This can be determined by the amount of powder you’re putting in. As previously stated, two scoops comes out to ~90g so you’d add 900ml (or just make it a liter) to achieve that 10% or less concentration; 3. Actually, I would recommend another protein and carbohydrate meal in the next 60-90 minutes. The carbohydrate choice could be a moderate to high GI carb, but I tend to opt for something lower GI and more fibrous (i.e. oats and fibrous veggies). The meal should come sooner than two-plus hours due to the fact that the ingredients are so quickly acting that you’re at risk for a crash in blood sugar levels and/or oxidizing your valuable whey hydrolysate for energy purposes.
Tampa T-Bone…I really like your explanation of the insulin issue. I also took a liking to your calling the action of insulin following high GI carb intake a “response” as opposed to the oft used “spike.” Spike just sounds too damn dirty for me:-)
