    30 grams at minimum.

    A normal intake is 60g of carbs within 2 hours after a workout.

    I take 1/3 cup dextrose (roughly 75 grams) with about 35 grams whey post-workout.

    Gmav, how much do you weigh?

    I thought you weigh 200 pounds. If you do, then 30g of carbs is absolutely not enough for you (Unless you are super-insulin sensitive). Shoot for 70g-90grams.

    Most of the studies done on glycogen resynthesis and insulin release used 0.8 grams of dextrose/maltodextrin per kilogram bodyweight. I think it was found to be what's required.

    For an 80 kg (176 lbs) individual, that means about 64 grams of carbs post workout.

    I take in between 30-40g right now, but when I was bulking, it was closer to 50-60g.

    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.

    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.
