Just been for a work out (legs and cardio).

Had a protein shake after. Trying to lose weight.

Definitely have some form of carbs with it maybe some oats or something, personally I can not weight train if I haven't had some sort of breakfast I do cardio sometimes though and then have some porridge and whey afterwards

Fasted cardio on a low carb diet can be a good way to drop a few pounds, so crack on :)

Protein is essential for breakfast since your body has been effectively fasting for over 8hrs (take into consideration you eat at 8pm, go to bed at 10pm, get up at 6am, that's 10hrs of no food!!!!).

However, I would include some carbs too. Baked beans, or some oats in yoghurt with some berries, some eggs on wholemeal bread.

You don't need the protein shake in the morning as it's easy enough to get protein in you first thing in the morning with out it.

Even if you're doing only cardio, I'd still suggest some complex carbs.

Krispy Kreme drive thru
you did a weights session on no food?
eating like a horse the day before or not, that is counter productive.

there is a sticky at the top of the forum, i suggest you go read it before you injure yourself :p
