I'm definitely not getting enough protein according to my lbm. I would need 135 grams!

why would you have a protein shake before cardio? why not simple carbs?

MuscleHeadDrew, I'd recommend you read the articles under the nutrition tab. Simple carbs should only be consumed post workout.

I would say anerobic, but HIIT get's pretty anarobic often.

Some complex carbs like oatmeal arn't a bad choice either.

My stomach starts growling as soon as I get out of bed--I found that whey in the AM gets things started right, even if I'm not doing cardio right away (like if my morning consists of getting my daughter ready for daycare, etc). I don't get 'brain fade'--and my stomach doesn't disagree as much as if I ate a regular meal.

1-1.5 grams of protein per lb of lbm.

I am a bit confused... So if I am at 21% BF then my LBM is 79%. At 134 lbs, I have 106lbs of LBM. So I need 106 grams of protien daily, Right?

Ive been cardio-n on an empty stomach for almost a year and wondered why my bf was not moving down but going up. well, i was doing two things wrong this was one of them. The other was the bedtime meal.

Meaning : you take a whey shake 30 min before running and, besides all the meals of the day, you take on more shake before going to bed ? did I got it right ?

I always do cardio and weight lifting on an empty stomach. I have had no problems with doing it these way. Upon completion of my workout I have a protein/fruit smoothie and am satisfied til lunch. My body fat has gone down since losing weight. I also read where you burn more fat this way but I bet it is different for each person.
