Okay so I know fasted cardio is not superior (maybe even inferior if leads to a lower energy expenditure) for fatloss (or retaining muscle) to not feed cardio.
I don’t know how to explain it to someone else. Fasted cardio leads to more fat oxidation as a way of getting energy, however at the end of the day what matters is if you were in a caloric deficit or not. How do I explain this? I mean it’s like, let’s say you burned 300 calories this morning on fasted cardio, most of them coming from fat. Then you already lost fat in the morning and by the night if you don’t consume as much fat and end the day with a caloric deficit of 300 calories; this would be 300 calories your body takes from fats/proteins or those 300 are what you already burned from fat.
Aside from all the others “benefits” that are even harder to refute without papers at hand. Especially if you’re talking to a certified nutritionist.
Hope you understand. I think I get it, it’s just not so clear to ask my question and to explain it to someone else.
