note: I never said that I actually TAKE said gel during a fasted training session, merely take it along in case it is needed to get home.
Moreover, at some point (although a different training focus) it is necessary to practice fueling, and I have found the carb blend in Hammer Gels to be conducive to my competitive needs.w

If fat loss is your goal then I would go with HiIT training for sure this gives your body the best workout possible and burns tons of calories. I use it four times per week and get great results. I would suggest starting with 30min sessions and working your way up to 45 min and above.
Hate to hijack the thread,
but. . . Generation ucan looks interesting.
I'll have to dance w/ the one who brought me--namely Hammer products, but that is just my experience driven bias.
As for the ultra races, I have been known to strap on the trail shoes for a couple(make that at least 50) miles. Agreed--ultra training is truly where concepts like metabolic efficiency and fat-burning optimization make the most since, as ultras are almost entirely aerobic.
Either way, if the OP is looking for fat loss and optimal health, looking into fasted training & Seebohar's work is merited
never used mzself but heard hyper fx by bsn is good energz booster for endurance,
fat burners alphamine and dcp imho, I also like lean xtreme for added cortisol control
Loggers on this forum and others are really liking Peak Beta+ for endurance work. High dosed COP, LCLT and norvaline
Beta alanine is of course another great option.
Something like Strive (branch chains, electrolytes and peptopro) could benefit an endurance athlete a lot as well.
Max Pump would be another great option. It's highly regarded for increasing endurance and stamina as well as giving nice pumps. My favorite aspect is the lactic acid buffering effects. Current deal at nutraplanet makes it so the more you but the cheaper they are

If you want extra endurance pair a good dose of BCAA with Beata Alanine and COP:
i.e. Formutech Endurance:
prevent muscle catabolism, and buffer lactic acid buildup. nuff said
