Coffee before a.m. cardio
Is it okay to drink a cup of black coffee before doing cardio in the morning, or does this mean the stomach is no longer technically empty? I believe the nutritional info is 4-5 calories and .7 carbs per cup.

Yes it is still considered empty since you have no sugar in your blood levels and there are no protein and carbs in your system for your body to use as fuel. Therefore, fat will be used as the primary source of fuel. I usually add some lemon juice to it for flavor.

I don't like to have liquid before running so I pop a caffeine pill instead.

Thanks bros. Wasn't sure if that .7 g of a carb would have any kind of impact. Apparently it doesn't.
