    well , i have a doubt.
    what would be better for p/wo:

    a shake of dextrose + maltodextrin + whey or
    a shake of banana + whey

    the pros of the 1st shake is that it has a higher insulin and glycemic index than the 2nd , so thats a thing you want post w/o. I think that the disvantages are that its a lot of empty calories (glucose)

    The pros of the 2nd , its a natural food , with a good glycemic index , and with vitamins and minerals. The cons i think is the fructose content of the banana , like any other fruit , who has a low metabolism , so , a thing that we really dont want p w/o , but it also has a good amount of glucose...

    so ... toughts ?

    I'ld put all three. I know people that slam back 100g of carbs solely from dextrose after a workout. I like the tapered effect, so i combine multiple types of carbs. Glucose plus maltodextrin plus fructose from the banana is great IMO. My appetite is surpressed after hard workouts so it takes me a while to get hungry. The mixture helps me from crashing before I get to eat solid food. Tastes better too than straight dextrose/malto which is a bit too sweet for my tastes.

    I like my shakes with whey, egg, bannana, oats, honey, and brandy.

    oats>>carb powders.

    Well, if you were really trying to gain weight, the first would be better.

    But generally I like to stick to whole foods, so I'd go with the banana.

    as far as I know oats are complex, and since this is a post w/o thread, complex is not what he's looking for now is it

    You could intake as many as 60g of each, Cody, but I'd start out smaller. Start out with 40g of each and 30g-40g of protein.

    It's a great source of complex carbohydrates, protein, and fat:
