I've been doing some research and everything I read seems to contradict the last thing that I read. I am looking for some help on my preworkout meals, mainly pre cardio. Pre- lifting I usually mix 2 whole eggs with approx 4 eggs worth of egg whites and have a bowl of steel cut oatmeal with raisins and dried cranberries then hit the gym 2 hours later. Pre cardio - which I do a HIIT routine swimming laps, I usually just have the oatmeal and sometimes an apple, and a cup of coffee then begin cardio about 1 and 1/2 hours later. Is this an effective meal to eat before cardio if my goal is fat loss? I've been reading up on fasted cardio and it seems half the people swear by it and the other half say it makes no difference except you'll burn more muscle. Can anyone shed some light on this for me or direct me to somewhere that I can find out myself? Thanks guys.
