    sweet tarts after lifting

    I have been seeing a lot of people take a handful of sweet tarts after lifting. I know its for the dextrose but is that the most efficient way to get it? Isn't eating sweet tarts post workout counter productive ?

    Thanks for the input!

    It’s just carbs... it’s not good or bad in and of itself...
    The power of carbs compels me!

    I would call the police if I saw people taking them. I can’t stand thieves.

    Yeah man I live by them, use them to break my fast and It’s like 60% of my carb source and on my high carb days

    I stay lean year round

    il legit eat 250g+ of sweetarts alone (the remaining 250g comes from white rice)

    Also gummie bears are not good for this, gummie bears have actual sugar and some will store as liver glycogen(not what you want)

    Sweetarts store as purely muscle glycogen

    Gummie bears = sugar and dextrose (bad)

    Sweetarts = only dextrose and no sugar (good)

    Sugar is 50% fructose and 50%glucose

    I make a fruit smoothie.
    More nutritious and readily digestible.

    I'm interested in my overall health.

    Them having some sweet tarts doesn't say much about their overall diet. Like if someone is hitting their goals, eating adequate calories, protein, micronutrients, etc, it doesn't matter if their day includes some sweet tarts. It's just a food, nothing more to it.
