How soon after your post workout 'shake' do you eat your main meal?

 
 This is a pretty basic question but something I have never seen covered?  as far as timing goes? How soon do you guys leave it after your (dextrose/whey shake etc)  until you eat your next cooked meal?
 
 Cheers.

    personally i have mine 40mins after my shake
     
    " It is a wise idea to consume a post workout meal composed of whole food, low GI carbohydrate sources about 30 minutes after finishing the shake.
    These low GI carbohydrates will help stabilize blood sugar levels. You see, dextrose causes a very large insulin spike, and actually can cause insulin to be over secreted, when insulin is over secreted, blood sugar levels will drop rapidly as insulin disposes of the glucose into the tissues and one may even begin to experience hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
    Low blood sugar may lead one to experience an increase in hunger. A lower GI carbohydrate and protein meal post workout will help counteract this negative effect by stabilizing blood sugar levels."

    Usually within an hour, varies though if I train for longer or not. Anywhere between 15-60mins.

    tends to be around an hour or so, works out pretty well as is 30minute walk back from the gym, then having a shower and cooking the meal is about an hour.
