I think we should know what your goals are...whats your body type?
Simple sugars after my workout always kept me smooth...when I switched to complex carbs, and get my insulin in control, great things happened...but its all dependant on many factors..fill us in holmes!

Ive been doing hypertrophy stage and stregnth training stage. The hypertrophy is really to get my body a rest from the max efforts I put into my squat bench and deadlift. I also figure drinking the v-8 because of the carbs and the vitamins from the the fruits and vegies.

I've had good results having simple sugars post workout before or after my protein shake.
In high school i would keep candy in my car, but the chocolate would melt in the summer time

When I bulk, I do a combination of simple and complex carbs post workout. 1.5 cup oats, 20-40g maltodextrin.

-Energy deficit after exercise augments lipid mobilization but does not contribute to the exercise-induced increase in insulin sensitivity (abstract)
-From a HGH perspective
-Books or interviews with Dr. DiPasquale (SHR 501 and more)
-Books or interviews with Dr. Scott Connelly (at least one on the crossfit journal)
I didn't realize this was news?

i generally try to use a carb that wont really spike insulin but will empty the gut quickly, i really like to use Waxy Maize for those purposes.

I'll stick with my carbs post-WO as the benefits of prolonged GH are speculative, at best, and that I like my glycogen levels to be full. I'm not saying to ingest a cast amount of high-GI carbs, but taking out this important macronutrient is absurd. Exercise, aerobic and anaerobic, both increase GLUT-4 receptor expression, which will, in turn, help repartition the glucose to the muscle.
I wish that study would have looked into cortisol, CK, and other inflammatory markers to see if there was any impaired recovery.

There is plenty of research on Carbs and protein around workout. GH effect is overrated at best.
If you guys want an excellent source for pre/during/post nutrition information, pick up Dr Lyle Mcdonald's "The Protein Book." He covers just about every research available and its implications on training. Hundreds of research covered. He is a collegue of Alan Aragon for those who know him.

vitargo gets good reviews but is so costly, ground oats as my postWO carb has always yielded me the best results over wms, dextrose, fruit juice, gatorade, etc.
