alright, i was going to start taking dextrose along with protein powder after working out but i dont feel like paying over $17 a month for dextrose!

so....i am thinking about eating 3 bananas, 2 scoops of whey and 2 glasses of milk.

i need to know what you guys think about it and would it work as a postworkout meal. i get banans for 29 cents a pound so i think its a good deal.

also, what do you think about ZMA...i had a post asking about it but it got closed!

Bananas are no match for dextrose. Dextrose is the ultimate post workout supplement, and it is very cheap(less than half the price of any protein supplement by weight and just as important). At proteinfactory, it's like 2.49 a pound. 10 lbs should easily last you a couple months.

Buy it.
Use it.
Buy more.

17 bux a month is not that much....i payed 10 bux for 11lbs of the stuff...and it lasts much longer than 1 month

IMO, that's not that good of a post workout shake/meal. The fructose from the bananas will be restore your liver glycogen instead of the muscle glycogen and the milk will slow done the absorption of the whey protein. Dextrose, whey, and water is the best post workout shake. Also, I've been taking ZMA for about 2 months, and I think it's a waste of money, after I run out this month, I'm not buying anymore.

alright guys thanks for the posts....i think i will buy dextrose then.

BUT, i plan on taking 100g after working out, and at protein factory a months supply will be $17.....the reason why i mentioned the bananas is that i read in flex magazine thats what dorian yates used to eat after his workout.

You can always buy SweetTarts, a candy made entirely from dextrose/malto.

You don't need 100g. 50g of dextrose is plenty to give you what you need.

Did Flex mention that dorian's post workout shake also included huge amounts of test, anadrol, insulin, and GH?

I'm allergic to whey protein, so I can't eat any pre-made dextrose/whey post-workout supplements. Instead, I eat 5 giant sweettarts (50 g of dextrose/malto) and 25 g protein worth of egg whites.

Really, should there be any difference between powdered dextrose and a candy made entirely of dextrose?

All depends if you include the powdered form you get called Dextrose.

If I don't have any dextrose, I'll eat anything high in sugar after a workout.

17 bucks a month for dextrose would be alot cheaper than buying all those seperate grocery ingredients to make your post-workout shake for a month
