I am not sure if this has been addressed directly, but if going low carb throughout the day (say 75g or less) and I exercise between 30-45 minutes, primarily for fat loss, with resistance 2-3 days, and general cardio or HIIT on 2-3 other days, is it okay to ingest a meal post-workout that is composed of low carb veggies, meat, and fats? I looked at this Paleo Hacks link on post workout nutrition and the relavent links referenced to Mark Sisson and Robb Wolf but only got the idea that high protein/low carb if my sessions aren't long is perfectly fine post-workout.
My concern is, if I decide to have some sort of salad post workout with some lean chicken, can I drizzle some form of vinaigrette dressing, or can I have some oily fish, such as salmon with steamed veggies? My understanding is, in a post-workout environment, IF there is little to no carbs ingested, insulin remains low, so your body looks to fat stores for energy. As I'm focusing on fat loss and muscle preservation, but not bulking up, I'm okay with the insulin not being there to shuttle carbs into the muscle.
So ultimately, what happens to the fats I ingest post-workout if there are little to no carbs taken in, just protein?
