    HIIT and Eating

    Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

    I have thought that when doing HIIT, it's best to do HIIT on an empty stomach, and not having eaten for 3 hours. Then, after a session of HIIT is finished, eat 60 minutes after the session.

    Eat

    3 hours later, do HIIT

    1 hour after completion, eat


    I am reading more and more that it's good to eat a protein & carb mix about 60-90 minutes before HIIT.


    Can someone please clarify which is best?


    Thanks in advance.

    I only thought the reason for not eating before HIIT was so that you let your food settle. Didn't think it mattered. I'm interested now tho ,and I'm going to look it up.

    Just have a big smoothy whenever

    But the idea is to not have much in your stomach when doing it, yet also be nourished at the same time. If you eat too soon you'll throw up. I would not eat anything less than 90 minutes prior, and if I did, it would be a rapid absoprtion whey/carb mix.

    I think the point is good luck not throwing up with HIIT if you've eaten in the last hour.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    HIIT is most effective for fat loss 1st thing in the AM.

    You can eat 30min after.

    No candy!

    Yes, HIIT, first thing in the AM, on a empty stomach really rock my body and I feel different all day.

    Is the low glycogen stores, true, in that you can burn more fat?

    Also, after HIIT, I do not eat for 1 full hour.

    low glycogen, yes, tapping into fat stores for energy.

    However, also cranks metabolism for additional calorie burning throughout the day.

    The Capt recommends 45-60mins top

    45-60 min of HITT?

    I only do 22 min top.

    Any studies on 45-60 min?

    Seems too long. Body will tap into muscle and then amonia sweat smell.

    I would die after 45 minutes of HIIT.. I do sprint 30 secs, jog 1 minute for about 15 minutes.
    I also do this.

    who said eat 60 minutes after a hard workout? its been around 50+ years that i know of, that you eat in the first 15 minutes after anykind of trainning session. ez, med. or hard.
    the 15 minute window..

    20 mins is just about my max.

    Furthermore it's the 'afterburn' that causes you to burn fat, due to stimulation of hormones such as test, GH and leptin etc, rather than the fat you burn during the HIIT.

    Furthermore if you were relying on the fat burn of the workout, it would be better to walk instead of run because when you run you use glycogen then burn up your muscles. It's a good idea to atleast have some level of saturation of glycogen in order to not use muscle as a source of energy during the HIIT.

    Doing HIIT then 20 mins of walking to burn the freed up fat is optimal IMO.

    So, you are stating that HIIT on an empty stomach right out of bed, will end up using muscles and not fat?

    22 minutes HIIT?

    More confusion.

    I've never heard/read that.

    Just read my old posts as I'm looking for info again. I was confused back then (doh!) having forgotten some of the details.

    I'm doing HIIT again right after I wake up on an empty stomach. 21-22 minutes of HIIT, and I'll walk briskly for 20 minutes after that.

    Eat after 20-30 minutes after the brisk walk is finished. Safe?

    Want to lose some fat. I think this will work.
