    For me I did .8g per /kg body weight and half as much protein (Seems to be a common formula used for studies performed on the subject). So for me that's:

    60g carbs
    30g protein

    Searching for post workout should bring a great wealth of information. WW7 has a good article here, that should be well worth your read.

    I estimated my carbohydrate intake based on how I felt afterwards. Back when I used high GI carbs, I noticed that anything over 50-60 grams left me largely hypoglycemic. So I keep it at about 40-50 grams now and feel great.

    Protein. No reason not to go a little overboard postworkout in my book. I get at least 40 grams after any major workout.
