comment How many carbs before a run?
The body doesn't store complex carbohydrates. Complex carbs are basically long chains of glucose molecules en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polysaccharide The body breaks down these long chains producing glucose en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monosaccharide its the Glucose that the body stores. Primarily in the liver.

Yes possibly... The point is that the body has a very big emergency fuel tank. And carbs are not required before exercise especially when trying to lose weight as the original poster is

Absolute Rubbish!! This is the common delusion that makes it impossible for people to lose weight - the delusion that they need carbohydrates just to move. The body has enough glycogen in the liver for a 6 mile run - an evolutionary survival mechanism that has allowed us to escape predators during times of Hunger for Millions of Years. Only when this supply is depleted does the body turn to fat to replenish it.
