The timing of eating and working out is irrelevant for weight loss.
The body has several different energy systems, that it draws on as it digests meals, meets demand for high intensity exercise, or lower intensity activities. Ultimately, where energy is coming from during a workout is irrelevant, as if you deplete one energy store, the body will draw on a different store to meet your demands for the rest of the day - it all kinda balances out. What matters is the overall balance between calories burned and consumed over the entire 24 hour day.
The significance of exercise is not that it burns fat, but rather that it helps create an overall calorie deficit, and the body will tap its fat stores at some stage during the day to make up the deficit.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
