    Right now Im not really training or lifting at all, just doing GPP and cardio. I am trying to shed a stubborn last 7 pounds. Do I have to have carbs after my HIIT or Long distance cardio workouts?

    Obviously when I am training or lifting I always have protein with dextrose after, and then I make a meal with protein and some complex carb like brown rice. But as my goals right now 1 - improve my cardio both with HIIT and long distance training, 2 - cut a bit of weight.

    Do I need those post run or post HIIT complex carbs? I usually drink some milk post run but I have been cutting out the rice.

    Help?
