Answer by malica
Doing cardio exercise requires a lot of energy. If you haven’t increased your food intake to make up for your body’s increased need for energy, it will go to its energy reserves – your body fat. Body fat has always been your body’s way of storing any excess energy (calories) you eat for later (in case of famine for example, or just between hunts).

The same mechanism comes in to play if you eat less. Your body still needs more energy than it has available from food, so it’ll convert your fat back to energy to make up the deficit.
