    If your gaining too much fat eat less calories through out the day. I personally save about 100-200 carbs for my pwo meal. Pancakes, oatmeal, cereal ect. Haven't noticed any extra fat gains as long as my days macros are on. Oh I have alot of chocolate milk as well.

    The best carbohydrates for recovery post-training are simple carbohydrates, because they get into your blood stream the fastest. However, it doesn't really matter what kind of carbohydrates you have post-training, since you should be having complex carbohydrates in your post-training meal within an hour of finishing training, even if you have simple carbohydrates in a post-training shake/snack.

    As far as fat gain, your post-training meal is the most important meal you have on that day, IMO, and as long as the rest of your day's nutrition is fine, there is no reason for you to gain fat.

    ~50 grams of carbohydrates and ~30 grams of protein immediately post-training, and then a meal 30-60 minutes after that.

    It's really dependent on the individual though what they have, and you just need to experiment and see how you feel after what and what is the most effective re recovery for you, etc.
