    am cardio --> meal 1 pro/fat = better fat loss/lyposis??

    after doing a 45min cardio session in the morning.

    would it be more beneficial to consume something like

    1 lean chicken breast with 2 tsp flax

    20ish protein
    210ish cals
    8.1 g of fat

    and the second meal would than be the 'normal' breakfast

    oatmeal/lean protein

    i am curious.. swole.. would that help lyposis at all? or beneficial?

    Well lyposis as im sure you know is fat breakdown. Now the rate of which your body breaks down fat varies. I would use just a fast acting protein such as an isolate and banana or some dextrose p.w. and thats gonna help protect valuable lean muscle tissue from being depleted, promotes lyposis (fat breakdown) while optimizing mental focus and good muscle separation.
    Then a protein/fat meal shortly after.

    I'd never take dextrose after cardio being that the cardio I employ/recommend for pure fat loss woud not be indicative of needing glycogen replinishment of any great degree, and most certainly not from dextrose. (Just my suggestions, don't jump on me)

    As well, since I'm guessing ketosis is NOT a part of your diet, either oats/egg whites or egg whites and a few whole eggs or flax oil, would be just fine as a first meal of the day.

    getting prepared for all the atkins dieters to hit you up again, lol

    also, i just recently started emplementing the dextrose at the advice of a couple guys i know that personal train. i dont mean to sound vendictive swole, but isnt dextrose good after heavy cardio to replenish glycogen stores or is mainly good in conjunction with fructose and maltodextrin for various energy boosts during a weightlifiting or cardio routine? If it is the latter wouldnt the combination of carbohydrates ensure energy levels are sustained over prolonged periods of time.

    Heavy cardio would have to mean that you burned a good amount of glycogen, no? I don't believe Swole recommends that intense of a cardio session. I may be wrong.

    Precisely.

    They are different methods. I don't even say the words "heavy cardio".

    Fueling a cardio session aimed at burning fat (as the said thread starter is doing, hence my stance), with carbs/sugars/etc. would yield absolutely no results for the thread starter.

    I guess what I'm thinking is too hard to explain, as I don't mean heavy cardio as in 2 hour sessions, but I do understand what your saying swole.

    Heavy cardio is not indicative of a session being lengthly.

    I'm referring to the HIIT variety as well.
