I've been doing fasted cardio lately and so far I love it... pumps me up for the day and I haven't lost any strength from it. I was wondering if there would be a difference if I did fasted "lifting" instead. Not weightlifting, but doing bodyweight exercises like pushups and stuff?

I wouldn't do any body weight exercises without a little bit of protein. You could nix the carbs instead. When you do your cardio, do you take in at least 10 grams of whey or 5-10 grams of bcaa's? The whey taken before cardio has been shown to increase weight lost and spare muscle breakdown.

Bodyweight exercises are usually high-rep exercises and can be done almost anywhere.
In that case, if you just want to do some quick exercises you don't need any meal or anything.
