Normally after my weights I chug a protein shake, but I’m a bittle unsure about the carb source. I always have the appetite of a starved child after finishing, so I’d rather have some food/drink as opposed to some powder in my shake, so I was wondering about sports drinks like powerade as a post-workout source of fast carbs? The ingredients seem to be things like dextrose, glucose, maltodextrin…
if you feel like a holocaust victim after your shake then eat some solid food following your shake! as for powerade goes i think powdered gatorade is your best best as it contains dextrose instead of the high fructose corn syrup in the bottled variety
Those drinks are crap!
- Have some Surge Recovery
- Have a low fat high protein high carb meal.
This could include potatoes and such, obviously depending on your goals.
a fast digesting carb + protein pwo is great. Have that as soon as you finish your workout and before you leave the gym.
Eat some steak and rice/potatoes. (or vary your protein/carb source) Toss in some veggies and healthy fats according to your taste/caloric goals.
every 2-3 hours repeat that meal until you go to sleep at night… lol
