LOL, I had to use some Malt-O-Meal the other day for my post workout carb meal. I downed 6 table spoons of dry powder with water as a chaser then I had my protein shake. Not as bad as it sounds!

So how fast or slow is wheat farina, the main ingredient in Malt-O-Meal?

might have tasted better cooked. Probably digests faster that way also. I used to use babyfood rice cereal (basically the same thing) in my pwo shakes. If you blend it up with your whey it makes for a nice thick shake.

Man I been having to use stinkin pancake syrup for my sugar rush in my pwo's the last few workouts. Pretty ghetto, but it does have loads of sugar. Payday finally came so I'm out of that rut, and I bought a crapload of pure sugar.
