I do 1.5 scoops whey, about 120g of a banana, 1 tbls Honey, and either a plain, natural rice cake or oats depending on time, and sometimes just long grain brown rice and a tbls Honey and whey.

This works for me as well, ive been making good gains on about 3/4 cup oats and whey+creatine. Thats it, of course, you gotta do what works for you.

Amen brother, I used to use gatorade powder or other simple carbs and sugars but I switched over to the light side :)

always fruit and milk, the rest comes from either bread or oats depending on how I can get stuff to gym. Bread iss usually far more convenient.

Dextrose when bulking and cutting in equal amounts.

I've tried the low-glycemic option, didn't help me recover like dextrose did. Well, whatever works for you, right?

wow it was the total oposite with me. When i was high-gi i was always raging with hunger after i drank the shake and then i always woke up sore. Ive been going low-gi for awhile now and it leaves you more satisfied and i hardly ever wake up sore anymore. But your right, whatever works for you...

Yeah, the science on both sides is pretty convincing, so it literally comes down to personal efficacy.

I just switched to 1/2c oat bran, 1 cup skim milk, and 20d dex. I was doin 40g dex, 20g gatorade powder, and 1 cup skim milk for a while but I really am liking the new PWO combo.

Kotar, you have been doing your research. That is nearly a perfect combination. I would use basmati, as it's a natural white rice (there are others) instead of regular bleached or white rice. But that is very healthy. Good work.
