there's so many conflicting articles out there, I think you should just stick to what you think works for you

This - everyuthing is trial and error, listen to your body. So many bro science internet experts. People set themselves unachievable goals then think everything is a contradiction.

"Hi my names MArk, i weigh 72kg soaking wet and I want to be like Greg Plitt. I go to the gym Monday to Friday and do arms and chest everday. I have aa protein shake for breakfast and have my gainz meal for dinner. After 8 weeks i still weigh 72kg. I now do crossfit"

"Studies show a supercompensation of glycogen stores when carbohydrate is consumed immediately post-exercise, and delaying consumption by just 2 hours attenuates the rate of muscle glycogen re-synthesis by as much as 50%"

Good read that and it's good to learn a bit more about the "why's" of things, as I said I generally eat 30 - 60 mins post workout
