cardio before strenth???

hey im hoping this week to be moving into a new routine wich i hope will work, here it is:
1 hour cardio workout when i get up followed up by a egg breakfast 1 hour later with a protien shake.
2 meals then strenth training followed by another protien shake then 2 more meals before another protien shake before bed.
do you think with adequate water vegs in the nutrition and adequate sleep i would be able to lose weight aswell as put on msucle? or do you think i would be consuming to much to lose weight?

I think your best bet is to carb up after your cardio workout. If you don't you might just run out of gas during the day or during your weight workout.

ok below is a diet program I recomended for some else which will work for most athletes trying to control weight and build muscle
*******************************
AS for what to eat... I always recomend a high protien diet. Your body needs protien for cell recovery and for building. Your body also needs other stuff such as carbs though you do not want to overload on carbs. THe night or two before the actual event. feel free to increase your carbs some at that point to build your reserves some energy wise. as for portions a serving of protien would be about the size of your hand or fist. your carbs serving about half that. now if you feel full here is a way to fill yourself up but not mess up your diet, VEGATABLES!!!! veggies are awesome get a good mix of reds greens yellows all of them. a good frozen mixed vegatable is a good way to go. low salt and other preseritives. fill up on veggies. no butter or salt. Pepper and other seasonings are good to help add flavor. Now to top it off you should be eating 5 or 6 times a day about 2-3 hours apart.
I know this sounds like alot. but after a week you will notice a massive increase in energy levels and your body will start to shed fat. Also drink water. I mean lots and lots of water. about 6 -8 12 ounce glasses a day more if possible avoid soda's and other high sugar drinks and sweets.
Now this does not mean you need to give up your favorite stuff altogetherpick one day a week. I always used sunday in the past when I was training and make that an off day. That does not mean just from training but from the diet. If you do not allow yourself to cheat at least once a week you will find yourself cheating all the time. Do not go extremely overboard. but have some cookies icecream a peice of cheese cake or two. drink some soda. It is good for the mind and the body. Even during the week I would take one MR. Goodbar. Break it up into like 6 peices and have it with my next to last meal of the day your body really does need some sugars which you will not get from the previous diet. now with this being as close to your even as it is. I would avoid all sweets until then EXCEPT the one candy bar broken into 6 peices. (That is one of those 6 peices a day)if you stick to this diet program you will almost never feel hungry. you will have more energy and will get more out of your training.
Also when cooking your food avoid oils and fried foods. a little low fat non stick cooking spray is VERY useful. If you need any ideas one foods to cook let me know I also used to be a chef. I hope this help and does not get to you too late.

***************************

I hope you find this useful.. as for the cardio and weight training on one day.. if you do cardio in the morning... wait several hours before doing eight training.

OK I have a culinary question the don,is it true frozen vegetables are frozen while they're still fresh and therefore have as much vitamins etc. as fresh?and should u still eat them ASAP?

I have to eat vegetables otherwise i'm hungry a lot but i don't eat enough of them and always trying to lose 5 lb. more so I can throw and roll like satoko shinashi lol
