PWO Carbs/Protein Ratio

What is the best ratio for Carbs/Protein post workout? If there is such a thing.

Currently im having 30g Whey Protein & 40g Maltodextrin immediately PWO, followed by my PPWO meal 60-90miutes later.

    In my opinion it is a bit of a US influence that a ratio of 1:2 is optimal PWO.

    I have read studies and articles which have tried to work with ratios of 1:2 to 1:4.

    In my opinion 1:4 would be quite a lot of carbohydrates, or not enough protein PWO.

    You then have to take into consideration the state that the individual is in, if he is cutting and on a CKD for instance, are they going to want to have ~80 grams of carbs in their PWO shake? ? ? Possibly, possibly not, again, it is down to the individual and if that is what keeps them in ketosis.

    Well in my opinion 40 grams of maltodextrin isnt a lot for PWO carbs but then again we dont know the rest of your diet and dont know how many carbs you are having PPWO.

    Ok but as my training varies from day to day would it be benifical to up the carbs PWO instead? say 60g Maltodextrin.... as i dont know which the PPWO meal will be!
