[This question still needs work before reopening. Please don't vote on it yet.]

This video by Thomas DeLauer examines the choice between fasting before performing workouts and eating before workouts. It talks about a number of issues, including the results of a 2005 study.

[TODO: Extract just one of his claims here, quoting him precisely.]

PS: Below this is a WORK IN PROGRESS and will try to quote & mark timelines of the following claim

In particular, he claims:

  • The lipid molecules within the muscles (let me get specific name from video) when used or burnt by exercise are replenished / replaced in some fashion by subcutaneous or visceral fat deposits

  • Usage of these lipids causes a flow of fat / lipid cells from subcutaneous or visceral fat deposits, and thereby decrease the common "aesthetic body fat"

Is this true?

    I am sorry but this question is a bit of a mess. What is the notable claim that you want us to examine? – MichaelK Nov 7 at 14:39

    This might be a good candidate for migration over to the Physical Fitness SE. – Roger Nov 7 at 14:55

    This is still a mess. Which bullet points are claims and which bullet points are personal comments? In general, personal speculations/doubts/endorsements about a claim does not help SE users that want to give an answer to the post. To be brutally honest: skepticism is all about the provable facts. Skepticism is not about the beliefs, the speculations or the gut feelings. Since your own line of reasoning did not yield a conclusion, you want people to look at the claim with fresh eyes. So adding your own reasoning to a post does more to muddle it than to clarify it. – MichaelK Nov 12 at 13:20

    @AlexS A question is not a claim. Rewrite it as: "They claim that...". "And they also claim that...". "Is this true or not?" – MichaelK Nov 13 at 7:19
