View Full Version : How much Dextrose in a prot. shake
How much dextrose should I put in my post workout protein shake (50g of protein). One post in search said that i should put in 50-100g.. but the lady at the nutrition store said this stuff is super sweet.. so 100g is overkill ?
How much should I mix please?
I'm on a cutting diet btw and i only have this stuff after workouts 3 times a week.
let me know
BTw the stuff i bought is pure dextrose.

Most people feel that 75g is optimum.
On a cutting diet, Id cut it down to 50g to limit the calories.

I go with 75g mixed in water (separate from my protein shake).
**I drink 48 grams of protein post workout.**
I take in 50g dex with 50g malto
Thinking of upping it up to 100g straight dex, but i'm thinking diabetes :eek:
ok thx guys... i'll go with 50

75 is the best.
but i'm cutting bro.. 70g of sugar in one shot is like 30% of my daily carb intake
it depends on body weight (just like your total calories). Check out zepplin's article on pre/post work out nutrition in BMFer #5 @ www.avantlabs.com, there are also similar articles @ www.t-mag.com by john Berardi
