Yeah as far as I know, isopure is zero carb. So should I take it while working out if I am also simultaneously losing weight?

Long time back, my trainer had advised me to take dates (the fruit variety.. "khajoor" in hindi) to build up strength. Is that a good source of nutrients etc?

Yes, dates are a very good source of certain nutrients. Will wait for the PhDs to list out which ones. Almost all dry fruits.

Dunno about dates specifically, but all nuts/ dry fruits are supposed to have the "good" fat. I have no clue why someone would eat it before workout. I think it's maybe one of those nonsensical things some trainers/ dieticians like to recommend?

Any clue, anyone? Vikram, perhaps you could enlighten us. :-)

Most nuts have good Cholestrol (HDL). I doubt eating it just before workout or after workout is of any importance. Heart Specialists recommend some amounts of nuts to everybody for health reasons.

No importance of eating it at specific times. Just that they're good.

Thanks Vikram.
I was actually confused reading somewhere its a weight gainer and then checking the ingredients. Thats why we have experts here

As long as the nuts are roasted and not fried its a great idea.

I would rather eat them atleast 2 hours before workout or an hour afterwards.

Its not glucose powder for, Jaan main Jaan dalde, peete hi.

I like to eat about 4 Milk Bikis biscuits an hour before Gym.
Esp if my lunch was veg. I think its more psychological than anything.

Thanks guys,...I did'nt think I 'd take it so bad :(

Your words are very encouraging to say the least,..I love lifting and could'nt imagine not being able to do it ever again.

I am off for a couple of weeks,..I guess it would be baby steps again,..which I am okay with. Just hoping and praying its not anything more serious.

I've gotta cut back on carbs now as I rest or else I'll end up like a bloated Baboon with the same calorie intake as when hitting the gym.

Dates are easily digestible and will provide quick energy since it is rich in carbs and it has naturally occuring sugars such as fructose, glucose and sucrose which will quickly increase the sugar level in the body which is good before you start the workout and it does not contain fats as many of us think it does.

What about date syrup? You get this Lion Date syrup that you can use as a sugar substitute in milk. Is that as good as actual dates?

Hmm... maybe i will try it before a workout for a few days to see if it makes a difference.

Its always better to consume food as natural as it is because once it is processed the nutritional values would change since there will be added preservatives, Flavor enhancers, Artificial colours and other chemicals.
