For my weight I'm supposed to consume 150 grams of carbs after a workout. That's a lot of maltodextrin. It's 1 and a half cups. That's a lot of shit to put in a drink. If I did that, I'd use up this 2 pound container in 6 drinks. I just bought it. Do I really need that much? 1 and a half cups of sugar is a lot to just pour down your throat. I probably won't even taste the chocolate from my protein if I used that much. PS, this stuff is messy too. Just scooping it, it poofs up out of the container since it's so fine and dry. And if it touches anything that has at least 1 molecule of water on it, it becomes the stickiest substance known to man.
