What's the best time to do weightloss cardio? What's the best time to work out?

Asked by Waffle (248 points ) March 5th, 2009

If I’m going to be lifting, I heard it’s a good idea to have a large meal full of carbs about 3–4 hours before and then a protein-full meal immediately after the workout routine. What time of day would be best for working out?

When preforming cardio for weight loss, I’ve heard from some people that right before bed is best. From others, I’ve heard right when you get up in the morning. Which is better? Also, when preforming cardio for weight loss, do you eat before or after?
