Well, I've been doing HIIT for 2 days now. It's awesome! I started off doing 10 mins of 15sec sprints and 45 second low intenisty. But afterwards I always feel really lite headed and dizzy, I usually just lay down for 15-20 mins afterwards. Now should I eat right after training? I've been told not to eat anything for an hour after to increase fat burn.

It depends how you feel. If you're really hungry, I suggest you eat. If you're not (excercise suppresses your hunger for a while), eat 2 or 3 hours later.

I would eat if you can....some protein and carbs....replentish your muscles. Your metabolism will be up for sometime due to the HIIT, so it will be buring fat even if you eat. You want to feed your muscles to keep them around.

HIIT is glycogen fueled, meaning one ought to treat it just as one would treat intense weight training.

In other words, have a normal post-workout shake.
