    TKD question: Post-Workout Carbs

    I'm on a TKD and use a bodyweight x 12 rule to set my calories.

    I need to know if the calorie count from the postworkout carbs still count in my 2700 calories. If I take 50 g dextrose after workout, that's 200 calories. Should these calories be counted in my 2700 calories or can they be ignored since the 50 g carbs don't count in my daily 30 g limit?


    Thanks all

    Yes, the calories count.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    They totally count. You're eating them, aren't you?
