if your cutting, is it still recomended that youd have a breakdown of something like 50g protein and 70g simple carbs for your post workout meal?
and also, how many g of carbs is ideal for your pre workout?
it may be a little difficult for me to fit in alot of carbs in my cutting diet because im going to follow a 50g 25f 25c ratio, maybe i should workout after my 2nd meal instead of before my last..
any suggestions?

From what I understand, the carbs will go to replete your glycogen stores and transport the protein.

I doubt (unless you lift everyday) that it would hurt you too much.

also, which carbs would be suggested to have with my whey (i have it with water), simple carbs with a high GI reading is prefered, but simple carbs such as fruit, milk and yoghurt are high in sugar, and complex carbs are high in fiber.. so what do i do?
have a banana with my whey?

simple carbs are sugar and as wannabestrong pointed out they are unlikely to find there way to a muscle cell postworkout

Fruit, milk, and yogurt are all poor choices. You want either dextrose or maltodextrin.

Same amount as if you were not on a diet imo. You need the same nutrients when your body is dieting as when it is bulking. Therefore, to say that one should consume more when bulking is more or less saying that it is okay to gain fat while bulking.

Well SS-GOHAN, you are already consuming whey post-workout which is not a "real food" protein so why can't you just throw in some dextrose or maltodextrin into your shake? Of course, you can have real food carbs with your whey shake but why are you having the whey shake in the first place and not a chicken breast? It is becasue the whey gets digested more quickly. Therefore, you should be eating carbs with similar characteristics. I'm sure eating a banana will not hinder your performance too much, but you'd be better off consuming carbs in powder form. Also, a banana has somewhere around 30 g carbs which is not enough post-workout. If you stick with the bananas, have 2-3 instead.

coz real food isnt as quick absorbing as whey is..

when i said real foods in a previous post.. i meant, what solid foods are available that have dextrose & maltodextrin in them that arnt teribly high in sugar..

but i think ill just stick with the whey and as u suggested.. 2 banana's..

you can get glucose (dextrose) at some grocery store at dirt cheap prices. (an lb for $3-4 ) . mix 2 teaspoons of glucose with your whey powder and add water/milk.

i would stick to the same thing as when bulking, malto or dextrose or both with protien. Nlarge is a good cheap drink.

If you insist on having bannana's postworkout go ahead, whatever floats your boat. Who knows, some people probably eat pizza and tacos post workout too.
