    Tell me if this drink would be a viable post workout insulin spike.

    Tim Horton's Iced Cappucino. A 10oz drink has 158kcal, 2.5g protein, 34g carbs, 1.4g fat, and 75mg of caffeine.

    In the 34g of carbs I believe it contains 30-34g of
    sugar.

    It also has 75mg of caffeine. Would this little bit of caffeine be a bonus since I'm cutting and caffeine is known to slightly stimulate the metabolism?

    These drinks are oh so cool and tasty during the hot weather.
    I would still take my whey protein with it.

    What do you guys think. Acceptable for post-workout insuline spike while trying to shed body fat, or no?

    Av,
    From the looks of it I think it would be fine for a post-workout drink. Enjoy bro!

    Sucrose is not the best form of suger for a Insulins spike. Glucose/Dextrose is better. And why the Caffeine ? Your metabolism will already have been speeded up from the workout. Only time I take Caffeine, for training purposes is in a morning before cardio as it helps to maintain Gyclogen stores.

    I'd just buy some Dextrose powder and save your money .... not as tasty as cappucino but ...... :o

    Yates,
    why isn't sucrose as good as glucose, its just a polymer of glucose molecules, does the reactions that break down the sucrose make it less effective for an insulin spike than glucose?

    Yes. It slows it down. Not as much as something like fructose. I would say Sucrose is ok to create a natural Insulin Spike, But Glucose it a better choice.

    Anything to add Monte ?
