WMS Vs Weetabix?

After doing research and getting feedback I decided on WMS as my PWO carb source, one problem tastes vile!

I love weetabix with whey and even though a good PWO source itself doesn't seem as effective as WMS would be.

My question is honestly how much better do u think WMS and whey is 4 PWO over weetabix and whey if at all?

    id just go with the weetabix really carbs are carbs as far as im concerned, if you want a faster acting carb source then a few bananas maybe. No need to get pedantic over it really just get some good clean food in you whether its powder or real food based

    WMS is faster than dextrose, and is faster than weetabix.

    You say weetabix isnt as 'effective', as effective in doing what exactly? ? ?

    As is my understanding WMS is structured so it restores glycogen levels 70% faster than even products like dextrose, thus super-hydrating the muscle cells in record time.

    WMS also acts like a pump, pulling the nutrients along with water into the muscle and at the correct speed and osmolality for your body to fully utilise so if u supplement anything such as BCAA's which I do is another great benefit.

    I realise Weetabix has merits as well just since WMS is a taylored carb source 4 BB purposes I would think it would be a better choice.

    At the end of the day if I'm gonna slug my guts out for an hour in the gym u owe it to yourself to give yourself the best nutrirtion after, and as I mentioned I know weetabix is a good option (and MUCH tastier!) with whey just wanted to know what u guys thought the gap was in "effective" PWO nutrition between the 2.

    why do you disagree, its 1 meal out of over 42 per week, can you prove youre going to gain 1300% more muscle using WMS at £6kg than using oats which is 45p kg or even bananas are a high GI carb option. Does anyone here know the speed at which glycogen is replenished using dex/malto based carb sources compared to WMS and also compared to real food sources such as powdered oats or weetabix?

    To me, WMS just looks like posh maltodextrin. Both WMS & malto have low osmolarity, hence rapid absorption.

    even so nige what difference is it going to make real world as food is absorbed by the intentines and not the stomach, what about the rest of the diet plan, i cant justify soending £6 on something that isnt gong to give me even 50% more muscle for 1300% more of the price

    i just disagree with you saying carbs are carbs thats a bit like saying fats are fats! ive never used WMS so i wasnt recomending that and at that price i wouldnt!

    PWO your body is crying out for carbs so i think a mixture of very fast and slower carbs is best so i would recomend a dextrose/maltodextrin combo!

    In my opinion, as long as you are getting some carbs PWO, then that is more important from where you are getting them from, as long as those carbs aren't sucrose, fructose, lactose.
