i lift 3-4 times a week and im the cutting stage now so i also do quite a bit of cardio. on the days that i dont lift, but i do run 2-4 miles... is a post-run protein/carb shake just as beneficial, or even at all, as after a lifting workout?

Yes. Your glycogen stores will be as low after a long run as they would be after a workout. So I think a post-cardio shake is equally beneficial. However, I'd eat a regular meal within an hour or two after, especially if you run in the morning.

Post-run meal would be a good idea(ASAP). Carbs and protein.

Wouldn't it make sense to wait (if one is trying to lose fat) to eat in order to let your body burn more calories, before feeding it?

After you workout, your body goes into a catabolic state. Yes, you would lost weight if you didn't eat right after. But, it's most likely going to be muscle.

No it wouldn't: It isn't like your metabolism just shuts down when you eat and syntekz makes the good point about catabolism.

*** Aren't we talking about cardiovascular activity?
I don't see why a post workout shake or whatever must be taken right after a cardio session.

Thats what I wasthinking too.....

I fully understand the need fo a post wrkt meal/shake right after weightlifting....even when cutting.......but I've always been under the impression that it was good to wait a little after cario

I think running 2 - 4 miles is going to make those muscles work...

I like to wait 30-40 min after cardio until I eat.

i agree with maki-
why is an insulin spike needed.. Most people do this for fat loss. An insulin spike is the exact opposite of what i want.

I eat a regular meal, a few low gi carbs with some protein and fat

lose the simple carbs (sugar) in your shake if you're taking them cause it prevents fat loss, but definately keep the protein shakes!
