View Full Version : Do you guys go sugar free (table sugar)??

I am trying to bulk up. I have this tendency to avoid simple sugar in all forms (coffee, icecreams, regular soda etc etc). Do you think I am depriving myself of sugar?? My aim is to bulk up. I do however get sugar from milk, fruits, protein shakes/ bars , bread etc.

I try to do the same thing. When I do need to use sweetener, like in my morning coffee, I use Splenda or something of that sort.
YOu'd want simple sugar right after workouts.
your postworkout drink should include carbs like dextrose/glucose or malto (technically a complex carb but it has a high GI)
not fructose tho.

I eat a lot of sugars on my carb-up meal(s). Other than that I dont take any sugars in at all, although I do take in a lot of Equal and things like that.
Splenda...yumm...the forbidden fruit..
Weaned myself off table sugar, like Tryska said-its better this way in the long run, and got used to unsweetned tea.
I also don't think regular soda is good for anyone at any time for any reason.

I havent used table sugar in a non-post workout situation in a few years.
BUUUUT regular sugar is found in, ohhh EVERYTHING else. Even cheerios has sugar in it. Its hard to stay away from it. So when cutting I stay away from pretty much all food not labeled "tuna" or "skinless chicken breast"

I would throw some simple carbs in there for post training, but other than that, its not necessary.. youll do fine without them..
