Post-Workout Nutrition By: Chris

During the post-workout window, glycogen stores are depleted. In this state, the body will readily shuttle all carbs consumed toward muscle tissue in order to replenish those stores. Fast-digesting carbs are best at this time because the post-workout window to reload glycogen is limited, so speed of absorption is a virtue. The insulin spike is also a virtue because it transports glucose/amino acids/creatine/etc. to muscle cells. Also, if you consume in the neighborhood of 100 grams of carbs for this post-workout feeding, well, that's an assload of oats. Sixty to ninety grams of waxy maize, however, goes down quick and easy with zero stomach discomfort. Fast carbs are only consumed around workout time (specifically post-, and for some bodybuilders, pre- and during). Slow carbs (like oats) are the rule at every other meal. Insulin resistance will not occur on such a protocol, and neither will fat gain. Bodybuilders like myself who have been doing this for years without fat gain are a testament to its effectiveness. And quite frankly, it's among the most basic rules of sports nutrition. We're talking about Bodybuilding 101 here.

I try and buy all my supplements from NutraPlanet. If they don't carry it - I ask them to consider stocking it. You buy 200$ and you get it shipped free -- I always shoot for that. Their products always arrive promptly and on my last order they threw in a NutraPlanet Tshirt (nice Tshirt - thanks guys) This is an essential part of pre/post nutrient delivery. Make everything you do count the most
Try Slow Digestion Carbs for Lean Gains By: Christopher

There's comment misconception that fast digesting carbs is the way to go. In theory they are because they are absorbed fast within the boodstream. This causes an insulin spike, which is what they make you think you need. Insulin spikes cause weight gain and promotes fat deposits. You can laugh as much as you like but its pure nutrition, pure science - and not what companies tell you. If you are just looking for pure mass with little deffinition then good for it. But beware. Constant intake of high-glycemic over long periods of time will lead to insulin resistance, and again is pure nutrition. If you are looking for a lean physique, try slow digesting carbs. This will have a lower insulin responce, and will keep fat deposits down. Also, the carbs when taken with protein will spare aminos for your muscle tissue and still replenish glycogen. Otherwise the aminos from the protein will be used by your body as energy. Or try a mixture if you like. 50:50 fast to slow if you feel that works best. I'm trying to give another option that some company or magazine won't push. It's just nutrition.
Fake Reviews? By: Nick

Wondering why there are so many fake reviews for this product? How many people have to tell us about when to use certain nutrients? Haven't tried this, and never will because of all the fake reviews.
