So... I've read that on first burns carbs, then fat, then protein...
It seems most are of the opinion that one can't gain muscle and lose fat simultaneously which would be some contradictory to the above if all fat would be burned before protein is touched.
I mean the body has fat storages (in cells which we really want to get rid of) that would get consumed to cover calorie deficit before the protein gets transferred into energy instead of getting into it's aimed purpose to building your muscles.
So... In other words does the above order regard only fat that has still not gotten into fat cells ie. the actual burning order would be
1) Carbs still in digestion
2) Fat still in digestion
3) Protein still in digestion
4) Fat from fat cells
5) Eventually muscle tissue
Now the above looks some contraditory to the fact that we know there are cases where people have gained some muscle while on calorie deficit diets albeit it's slower than gaining muscle mass by bulking.
Further... what about glycogen tied in muscles is that a part of 5) above or does it burn at som other point?
Thank you for any insight regarding the correct order.
