Post workout shake:
Protein mix from Protein Factory- 28g of protein from casein hydrosolate and whey hydrosolate, carbs from maltodextrin, oat powder, and rice powder. Mixed with almond milk and 1 cup blueberries. Take with chromium/cinnomonium and maybe a nutrient partitioner like berberin.
1 hour later meal with either sweet potatoes, quinoa, quick oats, etc, some whole eggs, spinach, etc. Same supplements with that.
Works like a charm. When I switched to super fast digesting proteins and carbs immediately PWO and followed with a meal that had about the same size (albeit more fat and fiber), recovery changed dramatically.
I don't get why cyclists try to be so purposefully ignorant about sugars and proteins. They're not all the same. Lots of sugars, even if you're glycogen depleted, are still transported and stored within fat cells. Lipogensis dramatically increases when fructose is present after the liver is replenished. Liver glycogen is a very small part of glycogen stores so you don't really need that much fructose, which is mainly what comes from fruit. A small portion works better. Many of these simple sugars mentioned here do not actually get stored as glycogen. Studies actually show that high amounts of fructose essentially crank up lipogensis for hours and hours after consumption, making your body be primed to store what you eat later as fat. Simple corn and cane sugar derivatives can have similar effects so I'd really try and minimize these as possible.

Totally agree. Fructose is one of the worst types of carbs one can ingest. Fructose is a disaccharide that is mainly processed and stored in the liver, and the liver can only store ~100g worth of glycogen. (vs. our muscles that can take up to 400g+)
A good protein blend as described by KWalker mixed with a clean source of carbs is best.

Just wondering do you hit the toilet hard after that cocktail? [/quote
I did hit the toilet hard with big splashes and I think I saw a mermaid .
If you dream of being famous - think of what birds do to statues.
if I can get home, then I make smoothie:
2 cups skim milk
1 frozen banana
1 C frozen strawberries
tons of ice
It's not the mountain you're climbing, it's yourself. If you don't want to know, stay at the bottom.
I suppose i haven't used it before because i thought it would be full of preservatives etc but reading all these posts from users i might get a tub..anyone strongly advise against ovaltine brand ?
