    Best source of simple carbs

    What's the best source of simple carbs post workout, that's not a supplement. I've heard gatorade, apple juice etc...
    Being all that I can be is simply not good enough. I will be better.

    Body building is 40% lifting, 40% diet and 40% sleep. And it's always going to be 120% dedication.

    Power lifters eat to help them lift.

    If you don't want to use a supplement, why are you willing to use Gatorade? I don't understand this mentality.

    Anyway, corn sugar.

    My parents are skeptical about me taking too many supplements so I don't want to have any dextrose supplement. Something like gatorade is practical and I can keep it in my fridge w/o getting bitched at.

    dextrose isnt a supplement. it is just like sugar. in fact, it IS a sugar.

    forget the sugar and go for the oatmeal. If not try some potatoes instead.

    Based on your question of simple carbs, I'd vote dextrose...

    Simple carbohydrates are monosaccharides and disaccharides occurring naturally in fruits, vegetables, and dairy products. Some examples of simple carbohydrates are glucose, galactose, and fructose, all of which are monosaccharides and, sucrose, lactose, and maltose, all of which are disaccharides.

    Most simple carbohydrates elevate blood sugar levels rapidly, providing "instant energy" which is quickly utilized and dissipated. Fructose is an exception. Additionally, refined sources of simple carbohydrates, such as candy, contribute only calories to the diet. These "empty calories" are often consumed in place of foods which would provide important nutrients in addition to the energy

    I am Adam, Prince of Eternia, defender of the secrets of Castle Greyskull. This is Cringer, my fearless friend. Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said: "By the power of Greyskull, I have the power!" Cringer became the mighty Battle Cat, and I became He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe.

    In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure

    I agree based on your question dextrose is your best bet.

    Gatorade is a good choice if looking for dextrose

    Corn sugar is cheaper than gatorade. And it is dextrose.

    Glucose is great right after workout. It works like dextrose.
    Both are good choices. However, dextrose may be more difficult to find. You can find glucose syrup more easily in stores.
