Well I've been reading a lot of articles on the Avantlabs.com website. Love that site btw...
I read Zeppelin's article about pre, during and post workout nutrition. He talks about a blend that he recommends for shakes.
For Carbs: 50/50 Dextrose and Maltodextrin
For Protein: Hydrolyzed whey protein
As well as 3-5g of Glutamine.
I have bought a few different shakes from GNC and a couple contain this protein blend:
"Ultra Microfiltered Whey Protein Concentrate, Hydrolysed Glutamine Peptides, Milk Protein islolate, ion exhange whey protein isolate."
Looking at those ingredients, am I getting Hydrolyzed Whey protein from the powder? LOL I see "Hydrolysed" in there and "Whey Protein" but they aren't together LOL. Know what I mean?
My "Mega Whey" Powder contains 4.1g of Glutamine. So I guess I'm ok there... But another one of my powders has "Glutamate", and still another has Glutamic Acid... are these the same as Glutamine?
Am I just getting too complicated here? Should I just drink the darn mix and be happy? LOL Little advice please!
F*cking protein powders... I swear to god...
