Dont laugh but lately i havent really stressed post workout as much, and ive just been making a opticen shake in milk with 1 cup of ice cream, lol, even in my advance nutrition book it says in bold print the body needs simple carbs and sugars after an intense weight session, you guys use dextrose which pretty much is sugar, am i really killing myself having ice cream in my shake? its just easier and tastier, along with fitting in my daily cals. it also should replenish the glycogen just fine. (SP?)

it's calories in vs calories out.... but its not a very healthy option and you already know that. So my answer would be no, find something different...like yogurt or peanut butter.

Doesn't your ice cream have a lot of fat in it?

Doesn't your ice cream have a lot of fat in it?True. Anything with higher fat content is going to inhibit the rate of protein absorbtion. That's why if you're going to put protein powder in milk you should use the lowest fat kind. Skim, ideally.

Sucrose (being glucose and fructose) is not ideal at all.


See the various threads about fructose/fruit for detailed explanation.


What's the title of that book?

I use ground oats, pre/post. Seems to work great for me.

Have been thinking about dex tho, just never bought it.

Heck why not just make a post-workout sundae? Throw on some whipped cream, chocolate sauce, nuts, and a cherry :thumbup:

well throwing alot of fats in there kinda deafeats the purpose of using simple sugars to spike the insulin quickly...if that is what you are into

There's a big misconception about oatmeal having a low glycemic index. It really isn't low (http://www.health.harvard.edu/newsweek/Glycemic_index_and_glycemic_load_for_100_foods.htm)... In fact, it's about the same as drinking the same amount of orange juice.

beast - interesting, i always thought it was low, my old post workout shakes used to have everything in them, whey, peanut butter, milk, a banana, blueberrys, and oatmeal. i didnt really know better, lol.
