I just have my protein shake: 2 scoops whey, banana, ice, nonfat milk/water. Would be interested in what others are doing.

50G Dextrose/25G Protein/5G Creatine
This works for me. I never needed anymore carbs or protein to see good results.

30g of Whey Isolate
30g waxy maize starch, 30g dextrose
5g Creatine Monohydrate
I sometimes throw in an insulin mimicker if I've feeling flush

You want faster digesting carbs + protein after a workout. That being said I really like Torrent. I have 3 killer workouts a week and use Torrent post workout, the 6 lb tub lasts me a little over 2 months.
I used ~60g dextrose and ~40g whey concentrate previously, and while it was cheap the 60$ I spend for Torrent every 2 months is worth it to me. And i'm a cheapo.

I've been meaning to try All The Whey's whey, but right now 4-5 scoops of ON a day and Torrent 3x a week works great for me, isn't out of my price range, and is convenient. I'll usually spend a little more for convenience since to me time = $$$. If I was lifting heavy 4-5 days a week Torrent probably would not be worth it to me and I'd go the bulk route because it wouldn't be as cost effective to me.
If you have any recommendations for quality Whey that doesn't break the bank, I'm all ears.

To the guy who started this thread....You're only 158 lbs, youre not going to need as much dextrose or wm as someone 250 lbs. So tailor the amount of carbs to your own needs/LBM.
P.S. only a handful of fruit varieties are going to contain enough glucose to replenish muscle glycogen. Avoid Sucrose and fructose as much as possible.
All its going to do is replenish liver glycogen. And excess may contribute to fat gain. Raisins/Grapes are pretty high in glucose. If i had to choose one fruit post workout, grapes for sure.
Other post workout supps to think about: AAKG or AEE and Vitamins (especially anti-oxidants)

I've noticed people mention "waxy maize" in several threads. Do you buy it as a supplement or is it contained in particular foods you eat post workout?

Anabolic Window from Nutrabolics. Apple Melon is the best tasting supplement ever. Has everything you need. I took it for two tubs, about 8 weeks, and have never received more comments on my size and growth than that time.
Low and High GI carbs.
Whey Hydrolysates and Isolates.
Mag Creatine Chelate.
K-R-Alpha Lipoic Acid.
Game Over it works great. Sooo expensive though.

2 scoops TheSize
30-45 minutes later
Protein shake with fruit or full meal, depending if anything is cooked up and/or time.

good advice so far...I would add MULTIVITAMIN as well as a good antioxidant formula.

fwiw I take the following for a typical 40 minute workout:
15g Whey Isolate
10g Whey Hydrolysate
300ml Low fat Milk
1g each of:
Beta Alanine, Citrulline Malate, ALCAR, L Taurine
500mg tablet of Alpha Lipoic Acid
A lot but I feel each one contributes something
