I base it on feel, I wait to see how I feel usually I will take about 50 grams of simple carbs immedietely (minutes) after workout. If I still don't feel "full" (talking about muscle fullness, not stomach)
If I don't feel full I'll take some more, not more than 80 usually. I take .5g protein/gram of carbs+5g glutamine+10g creatine. I take my carbs in at moderation to avoid spilling over.

Originally posted by placebo going slightly off the subject for a minute, i noticed today that bread (white) has approx 18g carbs, 4g protein and 0.5g fat per slice.
would 2-4 slices of bread with a protein shake after working out be suitable as a "meal"? or am i being thick as sh*t?
I ate two pieces of whole wheat bread for a long time with my liquid protein shake. I saw gains in the gym but I don't think it is optimal. A couple weeks ago I finally went out and bought a huge container of maltodextrin and I have been taking 50 grams of this post workout with my protein. My strength has gone through the roof and I didn't change my diet at all except for cycling off of creatine for the time being. So I woudn't do it unless you don't have the money for a maltodextrin.
