My current bulking diet calls for about 300g of carbs which I try to split between my breakfast, pre and peri workout. Breakfast and pre workout I usually consume about 200-220g carbs and the rest in the form of a shake with a a scoop of whey while working out. After reading up A LOT of articles, I am confused to death about post workout nutrition. Some people say it’s better to have fast absorbing carbs like simple sugars and some say it doesn’t really matter. But just to be safe used to take maltodextrin (which I shifted towards peri workout). Ok long story!!!
What I wanna know is what are your opinions about something like granola and honey mixed with a scoop of protein post workout instead of the shake? I like granola but i am not eating it because I would rather have some complex carbs like oatmeal pre workout and breakfast. But it would be advantageous post workout, yes?
Any inputs are appreciated. Cheers
