    Start with why (and for that matter who) they said to add it - did they explain?

    It's probably this idea that you need that insulin spike to drive protein in to the muscles which actually isn't true.

    And to answer to the person's question you can do that but you probably need to take those calories away from somewhere else.

    NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

    this nonsense started years ago when guys started abusing insulin post workout. so they would drink carb shakes to prevent a blood sugar crash.

    we get TOO MUCH sugar as it is, so adding more is incredibly straight up STUPID. whoever told you that is very uneducated on nutrition

    stay away from insulin, stay away from sugar, stay away from these carb powders unless you want to GET FAT.

    If you are trying to cut, adding a simple sugar like glucose into your diet would be a terrible idea.

    Stick with whole food carbohydrate sources like oatmeal, rice etc

    You're not an advanced pro bodybuilder. Stop the nonsense.

    For what reason do you want to add it? Purely for post workout carbs? As others pointed out, not needed. If you need the carbs in your diet, eat them from good sources. This is especially a bad idea if your trying to get or stay lean. Or keep bodyfat at bay.
