Don't stress over your post workout nutrition

I thought this was interesting.  After a workout it seems to be calories that are more important to recovery than stressing about the carbohydrate / protein ratios of your post workout meal:

Beverages containing similar caloric content but different proportions of carbohydrate/protein provided similar effects on muscle recovery and subsequent exercise performance in well-trained cyclists.

The amount of protein we need, even for professional bodybuilders, is probably greatly exaggerated.
