How many grams of Maltodextrin PWO?

Am currently taking around 1.75 scoops of ON whey and 75-80g of Maltodextrin post workout.
 
Is this too much? im around 72kg.
 
 
Thanks

    Sounds too much to me I would personally drop this to around 30-40g.......Or stick 20-30g in and the same in simple carbs e.g Dextrose, thats a popular PWO combination.

    Well i usually take around 1.5 - 2 of the standard large plastic scoops and when I tried vitargo previously it said to use 2 scoops and on MP's website for malterdextrin it says take 50g.
     
    so i guess 1 scoop should be enough? what are the effects of taking too much?
     
    I have been taking this much for a good 3 months now and have only noticed about 1.5kg increase in weight?

    Agree with hoppy 1 scoop should do the job 70/80g seems like overkill.
     
    If youve only gained 1.5kg ie 3.3lbs in 3 months and your bulking looking to add mass i think your diet needs checked out mate and tinkered or changed as you should be gaining more than 1lb a month, sounds like you may not be consuming enough calories so a weight/mass gainer would be useful or just add something like oats to your protein shakes. Oats is a low GI carb and very useful for adding in extra calories, also adding olive oil to your shakes will bump calories count up as fats contain 9cal per gram 1/2 tablespoons you wont taste it tbh. Just a few ideas mate but i recommend you post your diet here - http://www.muscletalk.co../Diet-Nutrition-f11.aspx

    Thanks mate im not trying to bulk too much just gain some lean muscle I have been taking oats with my shakes so a typical breakfast will be 80g of ground oats, 30g whey and 20-30g ground flaxseed too which ends up being around 650 cals
     
    so on average im eating between 2500 - 3000 cals a day..

    There's no right and wrong answer to this.
     
    It depends on the total cals in the day.
     
    Leucine would be a worthy addition to your shake.

    Imo you need to add in more calories mate as your not gaining weight quick enough. Out of the 1.5kg you gained over the 3 months, remember not all of it may be muscle.
