Ok, people who lose weight because of this rule do so because the quantitively eat LESS. The timing has nothing to do with it. It’s the same reason people who skip breakfast do for periods of time.
Your body has a storage capacity for fuel. Largely dictated by the amount of muscle mass and how quick your metabolism is (clearance of fuel). Once full if no space is made through moving and using up fuel the stuff that circulates for a while will get stored. IT DOESNT MATTER WHAT TIME YOU EAT IT.
The ONLY consideration here is that when you sleep you don’t clear space for fuel very well (less movement). It still comes down to total calories.
2. Fat burning exercise.
There are movements that burn more fuel and ones that may prefer a higher ratio of fat as fuel but as a general rule the body will use what is most available.
You burn the highest ratio of fat when you sleep (it’s just not a lot).
3. Abs are not made in the kitchen.
Abs are muscles just like all the other muscles and unless you’re doing hanging leg raises while mixing your eggs up this is a stupid saying. Your diet will dictate fuel usage and if correct will illicit fat loss. As a lot of people store a lot of fat on their midsection you will therefore see the muscle that sits underneath better.
Those who store fat on their ass and thighs you never see posting memes with ‘Butts and thighs are made in the kitchen’.
4. There is movement with varying degrees of resistance THAT IS ALL.
STOP defining cardio and resistance training as epically different things. The only time this could be relevant is in zero gravity.
Combine a leg press and seated row, how the hell is that different from a rowing machine? Cmon…..it’s a resistance thing. Don’t add any weight you have bodyweight + gravity.
IT IS ALL movement. Strangely I see less people using short ranges of movement on a rowing machine but plenty of men particularly loading the shit out of something and using a partial range.
Which coach in their right mind is going to do a movement that is dysfunctional……cmon.
