    During high intensity aerobic efforts, carbohydrates are the major energy source. When performing moderate intensity aerobic efforts, carbohydrates are still the major source; however, increasing amounts of fat are used as the intensity is decreased. Carbohydrates are the preferred source of energy over fats, as carbohydrates require less oxygen to produce the same amount of energy. Hence, when intensity increases and more energy is required, the body burns higher percentages of carbohydrates. Note: Energy expenditure after exercise is also significant, as fat is the predominant supplier of energy. This point is important when weight loss is an issue.
