Hi All, I am starting to do HIIT workouts 3x a week in hopes to lose body fat, and am wondering what food after my work out will be best for that fat loss? I am experimenting with FODMAPS, so my food choices are kind of limited, but it has helped me so this is what my average day looks like.
Breakfast 7:20am = A cup of Almond Milk with a scoop of all green powder (100 cals)
Around 2:30pm, 20 minutes of "fasted HIIT" maybe a spoon of MCT oil before hand for energy
Dinner = Some sweet potatoes/regular potatoes, some grass fed beef and some Leafy greens/vegetable juice?
I am avoiding fruit, but have heard on intense exercise days to have more carbs and on rest days to have more fat. Can I have potatoes after my work out sessions or should I just have proteins and greens for maximum fat loss?
EDIT*** I really don't like downing a spoon of MCT oil before every workout... but don't want to ruin the benefits of a "fasted" HIIT. Sadly though, I'm not sure if I have a choice b/c sometimes I'm way too tired to workout fasted, and my performance seems to be getting weaker each time... is there something that could be had before the workout that won't destroy my fat loss efforts? Or should I just suck it up and dream about potatoes for afterward haha?
