When I count all my macros I never count the 50 grams of carbs from RESULTS. It comes all from dextrose. Do you count it? Should I? Do carbs as dextrose count as the same as say brown rice? Thanks
Yes count the carbs. Dextrose is a sugar.
Yes. Why wouldn't you?Do you count it? Should I?
6'2 - 105kg (231lb) - 14%bf
B: 137.5kg (303lb)
S: 172.5kg (380lb)
D: 227.5kg (502lb)
Do carbs as dextrose count as the same as say brown rice?
Can anyone elaborate on this for me? Wouldn't complex carbs be different than simple sugars? I can see one sticks around longer for longer energy and the other is quick. Is that the only difference?
Regardless of how fast it's digested or utilized it still contains the same amount of energy. A gallon of gasoline contains X amount of calories/joules of energy. If you trickle a pencil thin line down the road for 2 miles and light it on fire it will still create the same amount of heat/light as if you lit the jug on fire, regardless of if the it took twice as long to burn one way than the other.
