    Fitday.com track your intake and aim for a 40%carb 40% pro and 20%fat

    Cardio in the morning on a empty stomach seems to be the "best" otherwise do it after working out.

    Like previously stated, cardio is best in the morning and/or right after lifting weights.

    Cut out sugar, flour (including cereal), rice, potatoes and hi glycemic fruits (all melons, pineapple, bananas and mangos). Try to eat a balanced meal (lean protein, healthy fats and good carbs). Instead of cereal have a bowl of Old fashioned oatmeal with protein powder and almonds or walnuts. Eat only protein and healthy fats after 8PM if you go to bed by 11. Drink plenty of water.

    I followed this and lost 25 pounds of fat since Labor Day. I also switched to shorter HIT cardio. The results have been good.

    I find some cardio after lifting helps with recover. I go at a moderate intensity. HIIT stuff I would do at another time during the day or on an off day.

    Track your cals, make sure you get enough protein, and make sure you are consistent with your training.
