You have a very basic understanding and it leads you to a complete misunderstanding of what actually happens and how this actually works.I didn't say energy balance doesn't matter.... and I don't see how what I wrote implies that it doesn't.
But increased fat storage is most definitely is a basic result of increased insulin... unless all the textbooks about human metabolism are now wrong.
And fasted cardio means reduced blood glucose and if the HR is low enough, fat oxidation will be favored. I would be interested to see what peer reviewed literature disputes this.
Again, acute (which is what you’re talking about) doesn’t matter.
fasted cardio leads to more fat burning during cardio but less during the day.
Fed cardio leads less fat burning during cardio but more during the day.
It balances out and doesn’t matter.
I’d argue fed cardio is better because you’ll have more energy to burn more calories.
Body composition changes associated with fasted versus non-fasted aerobic exercise
It has been hypothesized that performing aerobic exercise after an overnight fast accelerates the loss of body fat. The purpose of this study was to investigate changes in fat mass and fat-free mass following four weeks of volume-equated fasted versus ...
Increased fat storage has not fuck all to do with insulin, it has to do with a caloric surplus.
You’ll increase insulin sensitivity by being in a deficit regardless of the macro ratio.
I can go deeper if you want but it’ll only stand to confuse the op and give him information overload.
So no you don’t understand energy balance.
If you did you would know why you’re spouting nonsense.
