Controlling Insulin Levels and Fat Loss
Here is something I'm having a little trouble with regarding what to eat and when throughout my day. I am lifting weights at 5:00 in the morning and running from 30 - 45 minutes after I'm done. And no there isn't another time of day I can do either. What I'm doing right now is leaning down and once I get to the desired bodyfat level, keeping it below 14% at all times.
The what I am trying to decide is:
Should I eat some form of Protein/Carbohydrate or fat before going to the gym at 5:00am or will the insulin spike impede my fat loss goals?
Is my post workout meal being so early in my day slowing down my fat loss goals?
Is it better to start the day off with protein and fats and slowly introduce carbs in toward the afternoon and go back to protein fats fro your nightime meal or introduce carbs early and fats later in the day?

So protein and carbs before my workout will not totally hamper the fat loss effects of my cardio after lifting?
