Do i have to stay hungry?

Basicly i decided to try and do fasted cardio early in the morning. This i cant go to my local gym as i will be late for work by the time i finish i decided ill go to the gym close to work.

The gym will be at least an hours drive which means i will have to wake up at 5:30 leave at 6 and do the cardio for about an hour.. 7 to 8am

Is it really wise to stay hungry during this time until i finish the cardio? Im thinking maybe i should have something before i leave the house but then it wouldnt make any difference as it would be the same thing as doing the cardio in the evening coz it wont be fasted cardio anymore..

Going to my local gym in the morning is not an option coz then traffic would have picked up on the M25 and it usually takes me 2.5 hrs so ill be late for work.

any suggestions?

    It's carbs that you don't want as your body will burn them for energy instead of fat.

    However your body will be screaming for ptoein in the morning, and so whey would be good as it'll stop you going catabolic during exercise.

    I'd have whey on wake
    Then CV
    Then another whey immediately after, ideally with a few carbs (simple and complex).

    Why don`t you just power walk around the streets. It saves you the time of driving to the gym?

    I am assuming you are wanting to do fasted cardio for its fat burning effects rather than fitness building?

    It`s what I have been doing for the last few weeks and is working well - 5x30mins walk a week on empty, then 50g whey when I come in.

    It will if you are battering it with cardio, low intensity walking hasn`t affected me.
