Do low glycogen stores actually significantly promote fat oxidation? amino acid usage for fuel?

Which does your body prefer?

From what I understand, low glycogen stores DO promote catabolism (body wants more blood sugar, but can't make it out of fat.) I'm not an expert, so I hope Bradley or someone chimes in.

I know you feel tired and rundown if they are low.

I guess it depends on the activity

Powerman and Ask have both recently pointed out that you body preferrentialy burns fat at rest even when glycogen stores are totally topped up

if this is the case then it must be commonplace for our bodies to deposit fat after every meal
