    I mix the grape flavored Karboload with vanilla whey isolate, creatine, and glutamine for post-workout. It tastes great. There's no cramps or bloat (as Doberman said) and the combination doesn't leave me so full that I can't eat a whole food meal an hour later.

    It's also a lot less expensive than that other Kar-bo product...

      Gotta go with the sour apple flavor. Tastes like candy.

        Below is one of the references that supports the use carbohydrates post workout. I want to thank Mentalflex with supplying me with these studies. This one in particular supports what I and many others have been doing for a while. It doesn't point to a specific carbohydrate, but it does support the use of carbohydrates in general post workout. It also supports the addition of protein in this protocol. I'll address this in a later posting and probably in next month's Truenutrition Supplement of the Month. This may not be ground breaking for many of us, but let's face it how many of use do things we've been told works without any proof. Well, here is good reason to be doing this.

        I also want to refer everyone to homonunculus's article on intra workout supplementation.

        I, in no way, am going to try to act like I have the knowledge he does. He has an encyclopedic knowledge on the topic and his article hit's it out of the park. I highly recommend that someone hire Skip or Scott for their training/diet in order to utilize these protocols to their maximum benefit. It's not all about just throwing some powders in a bottle.

          Is karboload a form of Cyclic Dextrins? It doesnt say so in the description.

            Doberman,

            I believe you are referring to this article:

            http://www.scottstevensonphd.com/Mea...cle2011Web.pdf

            Scott, correct me if I'm wrong.

              Here is Scott's article: http://www.scottstevensonphd.com/Downloads.html

              @blastandcruise - Karboload is a high molecular weight carbohydrate formula. High molecular weight carbohydrates speed up the rate of gastric emptying and promote faster muscle glycogen re-synthesis. Also, compared to low molecular weight carbohydrates, high molecular weight carbohydrates elicit a greater insulin response. Reference: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17852670

              Cyclic dextrins are a specific type of high molecular weight carbohyrate.

                Thanks Kris. Good answer. Karboload is the one that has worked for me. Waxy Maize didn't do crap, and the studies say why. I don't know about Cyclic Dextrins, but I can't imagine them working better than Karboload. I also can't imagine them coming close to the price point TN has. I know it sounds like an ad, but I can't overstate how blown away I've been by Karboload.

                  Maybe Scott can chime in on this, but I have not seen anything that shows highly branched cyclic dextrins (HBCD) eliciting a greater insulin response or increased rate of gastric emptying as compared to a product like karboload. HBCDs appear to show an increased rate of gastric emptying compared to waxy maize or dextrose, but have not been (at least from what I've seen) studied in conjunction with other high molecular weight carbs.

                    Another nice study from Mentalflex

                    Determinants of Post-Exercise
                    Glycogen Synthesis During
                    Short-Term Recovery
                    Roy Jentjens and Asker E. Jeukendrup
                    Human Performance Laboratory, School of Sport and Exercise Sciences, University of
                    Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham, UK

                    This is another study that backs up the "Anabolic Window" we have all been told about.

                    Although this doesn't relate to Karboload here is a recommendation from the study for post workout carbs:

                    "For a rapid restoration of muscle glycogen, it is recommended that 75–90g of CHO (1.2 g/kg) are ingested immediately after exercise."

                        Post-exercise ingestion of a unique, high molecular weight glucose polymer solution improves performance during a subsequent bout of cycling exercise

                        This study showed that a high molecular weight carbohydrate solution increased work capacity. Another thing it states which I disagree with is that the drink should be consumed post training. I myself and many others I know of have had excellent benefits by using sipping this drink Intraworkout, and a bit post workout (5-10 minutes after).
