Is this the ideal post workout drink:

35g protein powder
80g dextrose
5g glutamine
(all mixed in water)

I don't use creatine but I do have maltodextrin to add to the mix if necessary. Should I eat some real food(like a banana) aswell or is powder all that is needed?

Also, should I have the same drink after weightlifting and after cardio?

That is the ideal post workout drink IMO. I only take my post workout stuff, similar to that in nutrients, after lifting. Not sure if I should take it after cardio as well or not.

Hmm..I didn't think I saw Eric around the forums... oooh we're helping you, I see.

Anyhow, now that we're on the same page, I personally would have more protein in my post workout shake, and more glutamine. Maybe 10 grams of glutamine. And for me, 50-60 grams of protein.

yeh maybe try something more like this:
50g whey isolate
10g glutamine
3g creatine(optional)
50g dex
50g malto
a little fructose(I like grape juice post workout cause it has glucose and some fructose)
electroytes are good to get post workout as well

eat some solid food about an hour or 2 afterwards too.......
