    It's a thing. I assume it's mostly the alliteration and because lots of people like donuts and they make for good photos: https://doughnutsanddeadlifts.com/

    Hoooly crap with that hat. How does an organization peddling an interesting idea, get so involved with selling douchewear?

    Think I ate my last doughnut about 5 years ago or more. No appeal to me at all.

    Are we talking Krispy Kreme or Greggs? It would sway my decision. I would rather just stick to my usual banana and save the calorie deficit for wine in all honesty...

    I would think a donut might undo the work you just did, though its your biz so if you want one have at it. Personally I find they give me heartburn and the spike in the blood sugar, along with the crash that soon follows, is really unpleasant.

    Not if you'd planned it into your calories, as I believe the people who promote this do.

    It wouldn't be my choice either, but that's kind of like saying by having a meal after a workout (which is usually how I time it), I'm undoing the work.

    I know, which is why I said might.

    I am almost convinced that you alone, are the reason they keep making those things. I haven't seen nor heard of another person eating them in a good ten years. ;)

    Whatever works for you I guess.. Personally I don't see how any pastry could fit into any balanced diet no mater what your overall goal is. If you lift heavy with proper form, eat right and get plenty of rest, you will make all the gains you want without putting on extra fat. That's what just works for me. Gains come from recovery, fast recovery comes from rest and nutrition..

    Won't protein alone spike insulin? Doesn't fat interfere with protein absorption i.e. donuts are high in fat..?

    Why not just do gummy bears, glucose, or even granola for that matter?

    Whey protein alone will elevate insulin sufficiently.

    Maybe one every couple of weeks or so, but sure not every day.

    Gummy bears would give a better spike.

    And pixie sticks. Really any candy that is dextrose based will do this.

    Add in the fact that many protein shakes add dextrose and maladextrin; it makes for a good combo.

    Also @RoxieDawn one of the main reasons to have carbs also either pre- or post-workout is it prevents protein degredation.
