PWO After HIIT

Is it a good idea to have a whey shake straight after High Intense Training, I normally do it pm during my non lifting days. Then normally have a Pro, low carb, fat hour or so after. Im trying to cut a bit of fat while maintaining muscle.
 
cheers

    Keep your protein intake high, reduce cals slightly and play around with timings of your carbs to suit your lifestyle/needs. You should by doing that keep muscle and reduce fat, if you dont want to reduce cals increase cardio slightly.
     
    Having a shake after HIIT wont hurt if it fits in with the rest of your plan, if you're worried by drinking it will not help with fat loss then theres nothing to worry about.
     
    Monitor weight and check the mirror every 2 weeks, if no change then up cardio slightly. I would always increase cardio first than reduce food.

    i would have some protein and some simple carbs PWO especially after HIIT cardio.
    IME it can strip muscle off you fairly well if you run yourself ragged for the HIIT period and do not have some basic level of nutrition to avert catabolism.
     
    Although you are eating 60 mins after training, you will start to absorb the high GI carbs ASAP but if your meal is based on low GI, you are looking at 15-30mins for some absorption. So lets call it 75-90 mins for low GI carbs to give you a PWO lift. Sod that...
    If the meal is fat + protein based couple the digestion/absorption time to a few hours.

    Agree with robert123
     
    Depends when you're last protein feed was as well. If its been a few hours and you don't plan to eat a meal anytime soon afterwards, then yea have a shake.
    But if you plan to eat, or have eaten protein in like the 1-2 hours before or after the session, don't worry about it. Just make sure you're protein intake is adequate and met in the day.

    I would be more concerned with getting protein in PreWO, to preserve muscle.
