I've heard that intense cardio training on an empty stomach will rapidly deplete glycogen stores, which will cause the body to burn more muscle than fat. It can utilize the muscle faster than fat. You will lose more weight that way, but more muscle than fat. I don't remember where I read this, but it makes sense.
