View Full Version : All natural post-workout meal

06-06-2003, 08:14 PM
What would be a good post-workout meal without any supplements? Instead of whey, would meat, tuna, or milk be the best protein source? Also, what would be the best high GI & calorie dense sources? I need dextrose too as well, could I take gatorade or powerade for that?

Also, how many grams of protein, carbs, sugars should I have?

well, whey would be ideal, but if you cant get any whey, then tuna would be fine IMO.

as for high GI, you could try to get gatorade or powerade POWDER.

post-workout i try to get ~20g protein and ~60g carbs

You will take dextrose/gatorade/powerade but not whey???? LOL

Well I don't think Gatorade is really a supplement...
So what should I eat to get that many carbs?

Why the opposition to supplementing? At first I thought money but a Gatorade a day would add up too. So why don't you want too supplement. If you are bulking and plan to eat everything dude you teeth may fall out. Not to mention you are going to log some serious kitchen time.

Well it's because of money and some other reasons, but I have access to gatorade. So what's the best way to get 60 carbs? Tuna fine?

well to get gatorade powder to mix in water to get 60 grams of carbs, you'd have to drink close to 5 8oz. servings(13g carbs p serving). you could always drink the whey left over from cottage cheese pwo :eww:

Buying pure dextrose would be cheaper than purchasing powdered gatorade.

it would also be cheaper then buying all of the liquid-filled gatorade bottles (which isnt even dextrose) that i think everyone in the thread is referring to.

yeah the already-produced gatorades don't have any dextrose at all

Actually whey is not that expensive. 5lbs 72 22g servings around $33. When you do the math thats not bad.
You don't have to eat just tuna, any meat or chicken is fine.
