You have touched upon an area of great disagreement among fitness "experts". When is the best time to do cardio to burn the most fat.
For fifteen years, I've been teaching people that the best way to burn fat is to increase your metabolism when you ARE NOT working out. Everyone seems to argue over what kind of exercise burns the most fat during the exercise, but nobody seems concerned with metabolic rate during the other 23 hours in the day.
One technique that is very useful is doing split workouts; that is doing one workout in the morning and another in the evening. This provides two peaks of heart rate and metabolic rate, with longer periods to resting rate. This period of declining metabolism is the "fat burning zone".
Don't worry if you can't do cardio after weights; doing the cardio later will actually help you stay leaner.
