Can yyou do cardio after a workout?

Hi,

I am only able to goto gym 3 times a week. I would love to go in the mornings, do cardio, then in the afternoon do weights, but am unable to do this due to family commitments.

What i need to know is this : Is it better to do cardio before or after a workout? Some ppl told me beofre, for 20-30 min, other ppl say after for 40-50 min at 60% HR. Which one is correct, if either?
Also, what is the optimal time to burn fat doing cardio?

thanks in advance

ps, i need to do cardio as i NEED to lose about 5kg's, but want to do some weights at the same time to get stronger.

    I feel that cardio after weights will only hinder gains.....unless you are getting ready for a photoshoot or something like that.....

    20 minutes seems to be when the fat starts to get burned....and that is on an empty stomach.....45 minutes is good for optimal fat loss....

    thanks guys,

    ye, i know, I would love to do cardio at seperate times, its just my wife had a newborn, so mornings are pretty much taken up for us, and I cannot spare more than 3 days a week at night :(

    but i will do this routine for a month or so and then see if I have lost enough weight, if so, I will cut cardio down, and concentrate on my muscles :)

    cheers!
