Haha

I'll explain a bit in case anyone else reads this thread. Fructose replenishes liver glycogen and then gets stored as fat. Glucose replenishes muscle glycogen before being stored and is more easily used for energy. Sucrose is a combination of fructose and glucose, so it has both properties. Unless your liver glycogen is severely depleted , then some type of glucose or starch is the best carbohydrate choice for a gainer.

PWO, you want a low fat 3:1 or 4:1 ratio of high GI carbs to whey protein for rapid glycogen replenishment. This helps to bring the body into an anabolic state.

If your workouts do not severely deplete glycogen and/or you don't train consecutive days, then having high GI carbs PWO isn't essential. It is still important to consume carbs and protein. You will still reach the anabolic state.

For me, the easiest thing in the world is to just throw back a shake with high GI carbs & a little protein. I just feel better knowing that I've brought myself out of a catabolic state and I'm replenishing glycogen quickly.

After your PWO shake, you should consume a meal that's very high in protein. That's when protein will do the most good.

So in your case Matt, you could eat some carbs and lean protein immediately after training. Then have another portion of lean protein and carbs about an hour or so afterwards.

Net caloric/macronutrient intake is the most important aspect. Nutrient timing is pretty important too. It helps to optimize your growth.

When I'm being good with my diet, I have a PWO shake. Then 30 minutes later, I have a low fat, high protein meal. Then about 2 hours after that, I'll have a balanced meal that's still high in protein, but that contains fat.
Thank you for this Ross, i do have a response, im just checking its an educated one as im doing some research on this now..

mad matt's Sig:At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may god have mercy on your sole.

yea i'm not looking to use the gainer instead of eating a lot of food im just looking to use it as a little something extra to hopefully get me to the calorie number that i need everyday.

On a little side note i just got the Pumping Iron video in the mail. Its about Arnold Schwartzzeneger(i dont think thats spelled correctly) im so sycked to watch it.

general's Sig:If everything that you wanted was easy to get, wouldn't you already have it.

I just pulled that short summary about bigger stronger faster. It's a great movie IMO.
