How long after a workout is the best time for a post workout shake?

I usually drink mine about an hour after I leave the gym, am I waiting too long or is that ok?

Also, I remember somebody (I'm not sure who it was) in this board saying that smarties (a candy) was a good source dextrose post workout, anybody has a comment on this?

Thanks

I've read that you have like a 15 minute window to take in your carbs, and another 30 minutes after that to drink protein. It was in a thread down there somewhere, but I forget the specifics.

Just put the powder mix in a shaker bottle and bring it with you. When you finish your workout, fill it up at the water fountain and drink it. By the time you shower, change drive home, etc. you can eat a solid meal.

There is another thread on this subject with a very good link

stolen link : http://www.sover.net/~timw/postwo.htm

I did the orange juice recipe last night and it rocked!

1 liter of orange juice
75g of dextrose
33g of whey protein

Nurse it for 1.5 hours along with 1 liter of water.

I added some creatine and Vit-C for that extra....POW! Comin' at cha!

I have been taking my creatine right after workout and my protein 30 mins after. Was told to take my protein 30 mins after.
Am I wrong?

Perfect IMO. Creatine, Dextrose, Whey immediately post workout, have a regular meal about an hour or so later.
