    maltodextrin for bulking

    currently on a bulking phase and have been taking maxs supersize, basically its around 28% wpc and 64% carbs which according to the ingredients is all maize maltodextrins. i've have gained 1.5kg over the past week and a half since ive been bulking with it, but at $110 for 5kg for what just seems a bit of wpc and maltodextrin i was considering making my own bulking powder,

    i can get 4KG of maltodextrin for $28, and was thinking off having a 70/30 mix of pure maltodextrin and wpc that i mix up myself instead of forking out $110 for a fancy package and probably **** protein (gets lumpy and froths up)

    anyone use or got comments about using maltodextrin for bulking?

    Supplement section ---->

    Or just eat a decent diet and get as good or better results while saving money.

    It's your choice.

    ^ Or you can just have a handful of jelly beans, which is even more convenient, equally nutritious and surely taste better than maltodextrin powder.

    taste isnt a big deal and id be mixing it with flavoured protein, always thought maltodextrin was a slow release long chain carb and that dextrose was close to straight sugar?

    No.

    They may have achieved good gains, but you're ascribing causation to correlation sans causation.*

    The proper question is: what's the use of a mass gainer?

    The answer: it's like other forms of junk food. It adds calories.

    I fear you don't know that meal frequency and timing are largely irrelevant.

    OP: if you're so hung up on having your maltodextrin, nobody is going to stop you.

    Since you came here and solicited advice, the above posters have all given you exactly what you're asking for and you apparently don't appreciate the very informed and wise commentary thus far.

    I will reiterate what many have said:

    - Meal timing is irrelevant
    - There is no benefit to body composition that one might achieve through the use of maltodextrin.
    - There is no advantage to using a mass gainer during a bulk, as opposed to whole foods with an equal amount of protein and fat (there are, however, added nutritional benefits to eating the whole foods as opposed to the supplement).
    - PWO insulin spikes are only necessary if your glycogen stores are entirely depleted, which would basically require you to complete an Ironman. So maltodextrin PWO is entirely unnecessary.
    - Believe it or not, jelly beans and gummy bears are of the same nutritional value as maltodextrin. If you think it would be a crime against the laws of bodybuilding to eat gummy bears and jelly beans, then I suggest you view the consumption of maltodextrin similarly.

    If you still don't like what you're hearing then don't ask the question in the first place.
    My guilty pleasure: excessive cardio.

    Progress towards the 1000 lb club: 945/1000
    Bulking until I hit 1000. I don't care if it takes a 40 pound weight gain. No more pussyfooting around.

    Since no one will give you a straight answer...

    Yes OP you can take that shake and there's nothing wrong with it. However, getting calories from liquid sugary carbs is usually frowned upon because it doesn't fill you up and it doesn't taste nearly as good as it should for the amount of calories it is.

    Yes OP you can take that shake and there's nothing wrong with it. However, getting calories from liquid sugary carbs is usually frowned upon because it doesn't fill you up and it doesn't taste nearly as good as it should for the amount of calories it is.
    This. I'm finishing up a tub of dextrose myself. It is convenient to add it to a protein shake (which is taken for convenience over whole foods itself...), and can help you reach your daily macro goals.

    I'm considering switching to Coca Cola as an on-the-go carb source though
