question about carbs and cardi
if i do cardio in the a.m. on an empty stomach for 30 minutes, is it ok to drink some dextrose for my carbs, or even take in carbs at all right after my cardio, or will this just make my body stop burning fat and start burning the new carbs instead?

Dextrose is never used post-cardio, only post-weight training in proper amounts w/whey protein.
As for carbs post-cardio, that's an individual thing.

thanks for the reply, but will your body necessarily burn less fat if you take in carbs directly after your morning cardio??

Agreed.... and to add a little bit taking in carbs directly after cardio BLUNTS lipolysis. If I were going to take in carbs after cardio I would wait 45 minutes to let lipolysis continue, and then maybe eat some oatmeal. Many do that as to conserve lean body mass, but again it is a personal preference. Me personally, I like to keep burning fat all day so I eat pro/fat meals until PWO after I do cardio.
