Proper use of Humulin R

What is the proper way to use humulin R post workout? I have been taking 4-6 IU post workout, waiting 15 min to have a high carb/protein shake and then having another high carb/protein shake 2 hours after the injection. How does this sound? Thanks.

Fine, but you may want to increase the
protein content beyond what you’re doing.
With the insulin, and post workout, there’s
nothing unreasonable about say 60 grams.
Carbs are not necessarily needed so much,
since much of the point of carbs is to
increase insulin… but you’re doing that
with the needle. So you might moderate
them if getting fat is an issue.
