The food you eat is very important to you losing or gaining weight or muscle. The most important part is making sure you drink enough water to flush your system of toxins. Your Carbs are good before your workout but you need more protein after your workouts to build muscle. Bodybuilding.com reports:

Protein is essential for tissue growth and repair. Since the body is continuously breaking down proteins, our diet must provide sufficient quantities. Although recommended intakes vary and depend on body size and activity, a post-workout protein is almost universally helpful to kickstart muscle repair, recovery, and growth.

Whey protein is incredibly popular because it is rich in BCAAs, digests quickly, is highly bio-available, and has a perfect Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score. While whey is excellent after a workout, recent research suggests that a combination of fast- and slow-digesting proteins—like whey and casein—may provide the ultimate post-workout protein cocktail.4

Most sources agree that at least 20 grams of whey is necessary to boost muscle repair and recovery.5 Hydrolyzed whey protein may spike blood amino acid levels faster than regular whey, but won’t provide a long-term protein source. To cover your bases, consume a shake containing 40 grams of mixed protein (whey and casein) after your workouts.
