Yeah, I don't know what supplements you're talking about. You should have something in your stomach beforehand (but not enough that it will make you puke), and definitely eat afterwards.

I might take some type of thermogenic drink here and there about 30 min before a cardio session, but nothing else really. After my cardio, I do take in a protien shake with water, I cut my post workout sugar intake from about 70-80 grams to about 40. The only difference is I will wait a half an hour after cardio workout for the post workout shake and sugar source, unlike lifting where I'll pound it as soon as I'm finished. However, on days I lift, then do cardio right after, I will drink my shake as soon as I get home from the gym.
