Fasted Cardio 2.5 hours after waking?

I’ve been cutting for a month and was waking 6:00, cup of black coffee and straight on stationary bike for 60 mins.

Circumstances now changed and I still wake at 6:00 but can’t bike until 8:30.

So, is it best for fat loss to wait the 2.5 hours or have whey when I wake?
I have bedtime protein/cottage cheese etc around 10pm half hour before bed.

I train around 5pm for 45 mins training each body part once a week.
My BF in approx. 14% hoping to get to 11ish by end March 15
Any advice would be appreciated

Personally I wouldn't go with fasted cardio until your in the high single digits of bodyfat.

In long-term studies, both linear high-intensity and HIIT training is superior to lower intensities on the whole for maintaining and/or increasing cardiovascular fitness & lean mass, and are at least as effective, and according to some research, far better at reducing bodyfat.

Carbohydrate during exercise spares liver glycogen, which is among the most critical factors for anticatabolism during hypocaloric & other conditions of metabolic stress. This protective hepatic effect is absent in fasted cardio.

My advice is based on the AA research review; Don't worry about the fasted cardio and incorporate some HIIT into your routine instead.

At higher bodyfat levels, you really don't need to do any complicated exercise protocols. Very stubborn fat which is left at low bodyfat levels and just does not want to shift, sometimes needs every trick in the book for it to budge. At 14% or higher, stick to the norm ie slight calorie deficit, weights, sscv and occasional intervals.

Studies regarding whether hiit or sscv are superior for fatloss are misleading. Whatever form of exercise you can perform regularly over the long term (months or years) is the best. There is really no point in performing HIIT if you don't enjoy it and pack it in after the first session, do whatever is most enjoyable and you'll perform it more often, therefore burn more fat. Fatloss is a marathon not a sprint.

I completely agree indie, the very most important thing is a negative energy expenditure, and then you can argue the finer details i.e. sscv or hiit which reminds me of the 20 / 80 rule of lifting - basically focusing on 20% of the basics will give you 80% of the results. My suggestion on the OP incorporating some HIIT was to try and deviate him away from worrying about fasted cardio.
