    Your heart rate is important. I do easy satisfying low-level cardio at a heart rate of around 105-125 bpm. Starch is certainly optimal post-workout and preferable to sugar if you are looking for lean gains. White rice is the best source of carbs for spiking your insulin post-workout and building muscle.

    Starch pre-workout has more value for strength-building.

    I'm doing both.

    Any tips on what I can do nutritionally to give me some energy back?

    I'd try adding a bunch of coconut oil to your diet.
