Pure Honey + Whey Post-Workout?


#1

I ordered Surge Recovery, but it won't be in for another week or so since I will be away from home.
So do you guys think (Pure Honey + Whey protein) is good for pre workout?
and (Honey Powder; ingredients Honey & maltodextrin + Whey protein) is good for post workout?


#2

I go by the macro breakdown and what my goals/needs are.


#3

Honey is mostly fructose, so I’d stick with some dextrose or pure malto.


#4

I’d go whole foods pre workout and table sugar with whey post workout.


#5

honey tastes good as fuck. i like to make peanut butter and honey sandwhiches


#6

thanks for the heads up guys…will use either maltodextrin, dextrose or worst case scenario (sugar)… honey+PB sounds fucking delicious! unfortunately, i stay away from bread


#7

You could do worse, but carbs are so cheap anyway I don’t see why you wouldn’t use them.

Who needs bread? I’ve eaten bowls full of nothing but peanut butter and marshmallow flush. I figure a Fluffernutter’s even better for you without the bread :slight_smile:

Mix some pb + honey + cocoa powder in a bowl. Delish.

You can also use rice powder (pre-cooked/instant) Better than sucrose (rice powder has higher GL and GI) and may promote rehydratation.

I mean the rice powder for during and post workout shake.
