Why carbs are needed to burn fat?

Cut the carbs—When you cut out refined carbs like white bread, rice, bagels, pasta, cookies, candy and chips and focus on nutrient- and fiber-rich carbs such as vegetables, and low-glycemic fruits, you start to lose belly fat, because, once again, your body is burning fat for fuel.
Carbohydrates not only provide fuel for your hard-working muscles, but they also enable fat metabolism. The process your body uses to convert fat molecules into energy for burning requires glycogen.
Reducing the amount of carbs you eat is one of the best ways to lose weight. It tends to reduce your appetite and cause “automatic” weight loss, without the need to count calories. This means you can eat until fullness, feel satisfied and still lose weight.

One may also ask, why is burning fat better than carbs? We can do that with carbs more efficiently than we can with fat because we don’t always need oxygen to convert carbs to ATP. When that happens, you aren’t taking in enough oxygen to burn fat, so your body turns to carbs for energy. When you work out at a high intensity, you burn more calories overall.
