I have a couple of beginner questions about net carbs and dextrose.
First, should I or shouldn’t I include fiber in my carb requirements for the day. I don’t think I should, but I didn’t monitor fiber on my previous attempt at dieting. I lost a little weight, stop weighing my food, and now I am starting to get super strict again starting tomorrow morning. I’m shooting for 30 g of fiber a day, which should amount to 120 calories, which isn’t a big deal, but I’d like to be completely thorough this time through.
Second, I picked up some dextrose this afternoon for my PWO shakes. How much should I use per shake, which is usually two scoops of whey. I was using powerade power with my shakes before, whose main ingredient is dextrose. Its got 18g of sugar per serving and I was using 2 serving. The dextrose has 4g of carbs/sugar per 1.25 TBSP.
I’m sure this question is answered somewhere, and I am going to search for it, but I figured it would be good to have here in case somebody with the same question happened to look at this post. Also, would there be any nutritional advantage to staying with the powerade due to the B6, B12, Niacin and whatever else it has in it.
