After low/moderate intensity cardio, protein + fats.

After HIIT, protein + carbs.

yes, a liquid carb is suggested within the first 30 miniutes sucessing your high intensity workout. This is due to that fact that you are trying to replace the muscle glycogen before you enter a muscle burning state. Protein is great but suggested as 2nd priority, and should be taken within a 3 hour window immidiatley sucessing your workout.
