Our expert says:
It depends a lot on what you are doing in the session. Overnight, you use pretty much all your liver energy stores and so when you wake up, the liver is nearly depleted of glucose (sugar). This means that if you go out for a long exercise session, there is a chance that you will have a drop in your sugar levels. By long, I mean in excess of an hour. However, if you are doing something under an hour, you should actually be fine. It also is a matter of adapting to this, and as someone on the forum has said, they feel no effects. Perhaps your first couple of sessions will be tough, but you will soon adapt and then you will be OK after this. As far as eating goes then, it's a matter of preference. My advice would be to take a banana or apple along, eat in on the way over or during the session if you have the time, or otherwise an Energade, but there's a good chance that you will need neither during your sessions.
