Default Why put sugar in a protein shake?

I've been reading all the posts here, and a bunch of you say to put some sugar in the post workout shake?
Can you tell me why? I've just been drinking a protein shake without sugar, what is the benefit of putting sugar? Also, how much sugar?

Thanks!

There are many opinions about this. First of all welcome aboard. Secondly, search past posts, for post workout shakes and insulin spike. After your workout u have a window of opportunity in which you are depleted of stored glycogen and fast acting carbs are needed to replenish. This also puts a halt on muscle catabloism. But like I said so a search and u will find tons of info!

yeah, you definitely need carbs post workout.

I usually get tuna, peanut butter, a big glass of juice (carbs), and stuff.

I'd like to add one more thing. Avoid taking in too much sugars after your work outs if you are cutting or dieting because insulin spikes greatly inhibit fat burning.
