Default What is a good PWO carb to restore muslce glycogen?

Hi all- I usually have a banana and a protein shake PWO, but just read that fructose restores liver glycogen and NOT muscle glycogen. So what should I eat PWO to restore muscle glycogen? I do not eat any simple sugars, just usually oats, yams, ezikiel bread (and bananas PWO only). What to eat???

I keep fats to a minimum--they slow the absorption of the carbs and I want those carbs in my muscles asap. lol. Fruit replenishes liver glycogen b/f it starts to fill muscle glycogen. That is why I don't use it pwo.

my top choices are raisin bread, cereal, 100 calorie pack choc covered pretzels x2, mini cheddar rice cakes, and healthy choice fudge bars or skinny cow sandwiches.

I get all my "cravings" worked out thru my PWO meals and never have urge to go off plan.

Waxy Maize immediately post workout. I shake mines at the gym and drink it as I'm walking out the door.

Off-season, I will have a poptart right when I get home. Or a bagel with cream cheese. You want the sugar.

Then 30-45 mins. later, I'll have a protein shake.

After you get used to the consistency that is....I think the first couple times I used it in shakes I made awesome messes since it clumps up.

I plan to try waxy maize, at some point, but when dieting, I'd rather have solid food as much as possible. lol

I just realized I spelled muscle wrong. Anyway- I prefer to eat whole foods too. So something sugary all the way? It also has to be easy and I can eat in the car. My ride home from the gym is 30 mins.

I started getting mine there too. I love it!
I just started using there protein too; it's the only stuff besides jay robb I can find w/o artificial sweeteners- and it's cheaper and easier to find. I love that I can customize it and get exactly what I want.
