Reflex instant whey

I have been using this stuff a lot recently, and have always thought it had 0 carbs in it.

I read the label on the side which said "Importantly you will NOT find any added carbs, you just get 100% whey etc"

Then when I check the nutritional values on the side it says,

Per 100g
Carb 3.6

Now im currently, and I have my PWO shake of just whey immediatly after weight training + my cardio, then I do not eat any carb meal until 45 minutes later, (the no carbs means I am still burning fat right)

But I have just had carbs immediatly after these exercises, so now im really confused on what to do, I have run out of whey and have to buy some more, and it seems, all whey has some carbs in it,

Aghhh I hate this confusing stuff,

Anyone care to enlighten me in this situation

Many thanks people (TOXIC!)

    The carbs are so low they won't even make a difference. If you want 0 carbs then go with flavourless whey. The flavours are just from the artificial sweetners and a few added stuff for flavour I'm guessing, but it really isn't important as they are very low in the first place.

    I love reflex brand whey, great stuff, buy the raspberry

    Now I have just seen the whey on www.myprotein.co.uk

    and there is far less more carbs, less fat, less sodium and far more amino acid content

    But still there is carbs in this!

    Nutritional Information
    Serving size: 30g

    Yeah I just want to hear it from toxic, would 1 - 2g of carbs with my whey PWO on a cut create that dredded insulin spike, and stop me burning fat there and then?

    LMK mate,

    Many thanks

    Do you seriously think 0.3g or even 3g of carbs will make a difference?

    i remember when i was paranoid about small carb like this when i was losing fat, it becomes quite obsessive counting and checking every little carb, protein, fat gram or calorie

    As others have said it will make no difference, if you did HIIT cardio and then consumed your protein shake your heart will still be pumping hard and those carbs will be burnt up in a minute or two.

    I do my HIIT cardio and wait 30min then have a banana and protein which i have found to be the best recovery nutrition. I am not aiming to lose fat, but i have found that with my diet and training, and eating all the carbs i do i still put on muscle and my bodyat has decreased slightly.

    I Love Reflex Product, they are the best IMO. But now that i am consuming so much protein these days from protein powder i buy protein in bulk from All-in-One, their factory is the same that reflex uses but reflex add extra amino acids, etc to their protein but the difference is so small you wouldn't be able to notice. However, the place you do notice the difference is the PRICE all-in-one whey protein tastes and mixes exactly the same as reflex but is well cheaper.

    What i love about Reflex is the nutrition bars and there instant mass with the Actived oats and barley as the carb and NOT maltodextrin. So you can put some proper size on not muscle!

    I'm not toxic but I'll put my input in anyway

    The point of a post workout shake is to create an insulin spike so nutrients can be put into the muscles as fast as possible, so carbs in a post workout shake is essential in the first place.

    0.3 or 3g of carbs wont do this, 20 to 40 would.

    If you cutting you won't be looking for an insulin spike, just protein to conserve muscle. No carbs PWO in that case.

    yep
    as above

    leave carbs to PPWO and have lower GI/II quality natural source then with a protein meal, thus reducing sugar in the diet and adding quality micronutrients later on

    but don't the carbs shuttle the protein?
    isn't best to have some even if cutting?

    AND...
    I always thought that whey spiked insulin anyway?
    am I wrong?

    Carbs do shuttle the protein and protein alone does cause an insulin spike, but it's all a question of degrees. If you are looking to slowly reduce BF and still add muscle on a long term body re-composition diet, I would take simple carbs PWO.

    If your seriously cutting for a shorter period (i.e. a typical 2/3 month cut) looking for a greater BF loss and not looking to add any muscle, the additional carbs would be detrimental out of proportion to the benefits IMO.

    Aye well the first option (Slowly reduce BF for long term body re-composition) is what I'm doing and have been doing so I've been using simple carbs (dextrose) for a while after workings and it's working quite well

    when carbs are limited in a diet i simply wouldnt source them from sugar PWO

    using whey alone also allows for the on going fat burning porcess PWO to continue whilst supplying adequate protein right through to the PPWO carb and protein meal where quality carbs with a good micro nutrient profile can be consumed
