I received this email from one of my Carb Rotation Diet customers yesterday. It fits in perfectly with Bathing Suit Season Strategy #8 so I thought I would share it with you.
The first 2 weeks of my dieting and training went very well. I lost 3 KGs (6.6lbs) and reduced my body size by a total of 27cm (10.6")!! I have a long, long way to go but its a good start.
I have a question for you. Why is it good to do cardio training before breakfast and not after in the evening?"

JH: Mark, first off, congratulations on your success! I know it's going to inspire my readers to do the same.
To answer your question, there isn't that big of a difference in regards to when you do your cardio. Everyone thought if you did cardio on an empty stomach after not eating all night that you would burn more fat calories.
The latest research I have been reading shows it isn't the AMOUNT of cardio, but the TYPE of cardio that you do. High intensity interval cardio research is finding is far superior for FAT BURNING than static cardio.
So sprinting for 30 seconds and jogging for 1 minute and then repeating this for 20-30 minutes is more effective than just running at a steady pace for 30 minutes.
Bathing Suit Season Strategy #8 is to STOP your leisurely cardio session and START turning up the intensity. I hear all the time from women just like YOU about the amazing body transformation they have seen when they started turbo charging their workouts. Fat melts off their body at a rapid pace as soon as they give up those long-duration cardio sessions and start incorporating high intensity intervals.
I know you can do it!
