KatimaDanny Posted November 9, 2009 Share Posted November 9, 2009 I usually have a protein shake consisting of 12.5 grams of protein with 60 grams of carbs. those 60 grams being from high glycemic level to low glycemic level. An hour after that I have a protein bar that I make and it has about 20-25 grams of protein and a lot of carbs (I forgot the number). I herd somewhere that having to much protein after a work out slows down the body recovery so the carb to protein ration is 4:1. (4) being the carb. (1) being the protein. (If it was not obvious). Also, I herd that you want as little fat as possible (Even the good kind). Supposedly this ratio helps speed up recovery for the body So...When I look at VEGA :complete whole food Health Optimizer, which I bought the other day. It has 26 grams of protein per 1 serving. and 17 grams of carbs. And it has 5% fat per serving....So...This would not be the ideal protein shake after a work out. Right? What are some of the bodybuilding buffs have after a work out? I am trying to gain weight through weightlifting and increasing muscle mass but at the same time I want my body to recover as fast as possible. Re cab on questions 1. Is Vega:Complete whole food Health Optimizer good for a "After workout" protein shake?2. What are the bodybuilding buffs having after their work out?
