I think the OP said losing fat and gaining muscle was his goal. If thats the case your meals should be small and often, 5-8 meals a day to keep metabolism up (i know you didnt ask about that, I just thought it should be said). Post workout nutrition is very important as thats when you body really needs/wants food. As most have mentioned I would go with a protein shake, along with a good source of carbs. Within 30 minutes of working out I usually have ~75 grams of protein and ~40 of carbs.

Good luck with your goals

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.
