    why would u want to eat pro/fat before cardio. your body rus on carb especially during aerobic work. if your interested in burning fat, only a small amount would be used anyway and it all comes down to cal in vs cal out over the course of the day. eat carb before hand so u can go harder and longer.

    His goal is to burn FAT during the cardio session, not burn glucose/sugar in the blood from carbs ingested prior to the cardio session.

    That would be pretty stupid and pointless.
