Ok if the PWO ratio of carbs to protein is supposed to be 4:1 wut is the point of having whey immediately following a workout?????

I mean if the ratio post WO is supposed to be 4:1 wouldn't if make more sense having some kind of "carb":) shake immediately following a workout?

Please enlighten me.



BTW if i take 40 grams PWO from whey that means i have to take 160 grams of carbs in one sitting.........this isn't really practical for most people who weight under 180 pounds.............unless if u get it from dextrose or something...........

the majority of us get it from dextrose

who says this is the ratio ?

are there studies to support this...

either way it's important to have carbs and protein PWO

I take my carbs first in a carb only drink because I don't want the protein converted to energy

then maybe you should rethink your PWO shake and get some malto or dextrose...

Dr.Bernardi recommends drinking beverage of 0.8g/kg of carbs and 0.4g/kg in 1L protein during your workout. Afterwards, drink another. So thats 2:1 carbs to protein. 4:1 is too high I think

Yeah, I always thought it was 2:1 as well. I've never heard of 4:1 before. I'd gag with that much carb powder in the shaker.

4:1 would make a 32oz shaker into a 32oz sludge canister.

I do 2:1. Berardi's right. Whoever told you 4:1 is wrong and should be punched.

I do a 3:2 ratio...40g protein/65g carbs

4:1 is much too high.

I really don't appreciate your attitude

I realize that a % of whey is converted to energy regardless of when I take it, but since I use separate shakes for the sake of taste so I would never drink the whey first

get it :thumbup:

Taking the whey a minute after the carb isn't going to make a bit of difference in the world.
