Mechanism of fat loss

Right,

I wanted to know if my thinking of how you loose fat is correct.

We eat food and get cals from it and the carbohydrates in our meals is converted into glycogen (where does the amino acid breakdown come in??), we use glycogen as our primary fuel source - once we have used up the initial glycogen in our body as the fuel source our body will have no alternative other than to turn to fat or possibly muslce.

In theory, if you are glyogen depleted and use something such as BCAA's to preserve muscle (and do not take in any carbs, does cortisol come into play here?), would you be in a superior state of fat burning? ie only using fat as your fuel?

Correct me if i am work, i just want to know how the body deals with the food we get and the where fat comes into play.
