Is it just me, or is skim milk perfect for right after a workout. 1 quart has 32 grams of protein and 44 carbs.

I love drinking skim milk too, such a wonderful thing :)

Skim milk's macro nutrient breakdown is perfect for post-work. However the high amounts of lactose and casein in it is far from ideal at this point in the day.

I'd prefer something that gets digested and absorbed quickly, which is what you'd want after a workout.

Straight up whey and dextrose mixed in water works for me

Casein from milk takes longer to digest, plus I don't know how good lactose is in replacing muscle glycogen

I go with 16oz of superskim milk and nitrotech. It has been working great for me.

I love skim milk, besides the fact that it's really helping me atm because I'm working on losing fat and it keeps me from going around eating alot of junk food.

Somedays I almost drink a gallon of the stuff, gods gift to man I tell ya.

The PB post-WO is a bad idea. The fats are going to slow the absorption of the 'tein

:withstupi Fat is extremely anabolic and must be included in a bodybuilding diet for maximum gains, however, the post-workout shake is the absolute worst time to include fat in a meal. Whey and dextrose is the perfect shake.

How about whey and dextrose w/ creatine and glutamine?

I don't think creatine and glutamine need to be used together. If you have the finances go for it, but creatine is for bulking and glutamine is more for muscle-sparing on a cutting diet.

My post workout shake consists of creatine and whey protein mixed in water.

You don't want fat to hinder digestion rate in your post-workout drink.

I agree with doing without the fat and going for dextrose and whey, but would the milk protein (casein) in skim milk slow down the absorption of the whey that I mix in. I'm currently using about 40-50g of whey in addition to the protein in the milk post workout.
