No its not better..you would of gone all night with no food so your body will be conserving energy by time you wake up and doing the same while your doing cardio...defeats the object really - An empty stomach may feel better but isn't...

I eat porridge for breakfast which was recommended by a PT I had years ago and I train every weekday mornings in the gym usually an hour of weights and a couple of hours cardio after! 

Protein is better after your workout as it takes longer for your body to burn which effectively means your body uses more energy to burn it than it does with carbs.

Eat what you like really as long as it's not to heavy...life is for living after all .. I wasn't a breakfast person so it's easier for me to get it down in the mornings and does contain lots of sugars.

Does not contain lots of sugars...auto correct is pain in bump.

Ok, so light food will do the trick..Can you please tell me, what carbs are "good", and what should i avoid? So sry if i'm boring you with all those questions...

Empty carbs like sugars are no good or processed carbs like white bread and pastas....brown bread toast with a poached egg would be great with a little salt and pepper MMmm .. Use real butter over margerine spreads
