when doin cardio the main source of fuel is carbs whether that just ingested or in the form of stored muscle and liver glycogen the most important thing to do after cardio is allow the glycogen levels to regenerate by eating a high carb meal otherwise the fuel source will become fat and protein leading to muscle catabolism of hard earned gains plus fat is not as good an energy source so trying to then workout on fat for fuel will lead to bad performance in the gym

you need to consume something to avoid muscle catabolism but replenish muscle glycogen which is a major fuel source of anaerobic exercise (weight training) if you do not replenish this your training the next day will suffer so instead of a shake maybe chicken and rice or pasta for example hope this helps try and exercise at 60% of your HR max dont go much higher or you will train your aerobic threshold instead of being within the weight management zone leviathan reloaded are supposedly great for weight loss! good luck
