So, you would think that to lose fat, you should just do a lot of slow running, right? That’s not the case. When you’re trying to shed pounds, it doesn’t matter what type of fuel you use. Just because you’re using more fat as energy doesn’t mean you’re losing fat or burning more calories. In order to lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you’re taking in, simple as that.
