Diet is the #1 thing you can do to cut some weight off. You don't have to do cardio in the morning on an empty stomach for it to be effective.

If you are going to combine lifting and cardio then do cardio last, or do cardio on a separate day.

Try to schedule it as far from your weight training as possible.

If you do it in the morning have a protein shake beforehand and maybe a little fruit.

The reason I suggested fruit is because you WANT your liver glycogen to be saturated preferentially before morning cardio because it is the liver that breaks down muscle to saturate itself.
