Problem is, I just experienced a rather painful bout with gout (pardon the rhyme), or arthritis which is not typical. It was a painful two days. My eating generally follows the RAVE diet which is plant based and low in oils. It is hard to get enough calories and good protein on such a diet which is the reason for experimenting with supplements.
There have been several posts by individuals recommending after workout supplements to have a 4:1 carb to protein ratio. VSPP has a 4:1 ratio, but it is protein to carb. I suspect that ingestion of high protein sparked the joint pain in the knuckles of my hand. Has anyone else had this problem?
If a 4:1 ratio carb to protein after-workout recovery drink is recommended, what are the rest of you adding to your VSPP to achieve the proper carb to protein ratio?
