Cardio in the morning before you eat is great for dropping fat. but isnt as great of condition just because you dont have the proper tools needed to really get the amount of work done needed.
i really like to do my cardio right after lifting, just to get it out of the way and to maximize the effects of my work out, but i dont typically do super amounts of cardio post lift.
in my opinion do what your body tells you is best, if you wanna break things into separate times do it, if not thats ok too.
protein, is the best tool for recovery, depending on your needs youll need a specific kind though, some are built to trim and others to build you up. isopure is great for builting muscle, where as xyience is good for trimming your body and maintaining muscles. glutamine is a good ingreadiant to look for in products when thinking about recovery.
carbs are important to, but in different ways, really depends on what your going for, id say less of them if you want to built, more of them if you want gain size. if you eat alot of carbs youll have more energy to do continual activity, but if your ganna be stag nit i would say stay away from to much. plus choosing good carbs over bad ones is important too. white bread = bad, broccoli = good.
and all of this of course depends on your lifting ruetine as well, if you lift real hard and heavy this is all good, but if your really just doing light maintenance work outs this is all unnecessary and wont be very beneficial.
