    For post workout I would shoot for at least 30-40g and then follow that up with another protein packed meal within 90 minutes.

    40g protein + 40g fast carbs such as dextrose, malto-dextrin or Gatorade if that's all you got

    Depends. The organic style yogurt and greek yogurts are usually sweetened with fruit juice, in which case that wouldn't be good for what you want. If its that cheap ass yogurt that is loaded with tons of sugar though, then that's ok for the carbs. Don't rely on yogurt for PWO protein though.

    I usually just use gatorade or oreo cookies for PWO carbs :hs:

    You need simple carbohydrates post workout (within 15 minutes) to rapidly replace muscle glycogen. A small amount of protein 5-15 grams will increase absorption of those carbohydrates. I'd guess that overloading protein immediately post workout will slow down your digestion slightly, and therefore slow down your uptake of carbs/muscle glycogen.

    Within a half hour 45 minutes you need a proper meal with lots of protein though.

    This is really splitting hairs, and if you are going err I'd go on the side of just eating way to much of everything post workout.

    two scoops of ON for me (about 48g) and a banana/apple. i used to do a single scoop, but didnt feel like it was enough.

    reading that casein postworkout is good, maybe 2scoops of whey + 1scoop of casein? or is that too much
