    Empty stomach or no?

    I really need to work on my cardio not only for my health but a job.

    I will be running in the mornings after I wake up.

    Should I eat before or after my running session?

    There have been studies that support both Cardio fasted / non-fasted. Its whatever you feel more comfortable with bro. I used to eat before the gym but now do it fasted because I keep from getting to queasy. BUT... If you do go fasted I suggest eating soon there after.

    YMMV

    I like to do it but has to be soon after I wake up. If i wait too long I get tired and can't do as much unless I eat.

    I'm unaware of any studies that show a benefit of cardio in a fasting state, in regards to more fat loss.
    I would do whatever you prefer. I personally like to have at least a piece of toast or a banana before cardio.

    I wake up, brush my teeth, then go to the gym. If I wait my workout suffers. Then I eat after my pwo shake

    Like most, have done it both ways. But I seem to stay with it longer if I have a little something like exphy said. So that makes the difference for me, small simple sugars pre, followed by pwo shake..

    I am up at 5am.... I have 5 eggs, and a piece of dry toast, and banana. I am good for about 20 min of cardio, and then I hit the weights.

    I would hit cardio fasted. But drink some amino's right when you wake before you do cardio.
