Why consuming calories before a cardio work out is not helping you lose weight

If your trying to lose weight by dieting and cardio this why you should not  consume calories before a work out. If you eat anything before a work out lets say you eat a protein bar or a health bar or anything and that snack has 200 or so  calories and you start doing cardio for 30-45 minutes and with in that 30-45 minutes you burn 150-200 calories your really not burning the fat that you wanted to, your just wasting your time and effort, because you body is using that snack as fuel not your fat for that workout that you just did. So try not to eat anything about 1-2 hours before your workout and a few hours after your workout, because your body will be recovering  after your done exercising and it’ll be using your fat as fuel for recovery and if you eat right after your work out the body will be using the food you just ate instead of the fat..
