Glucose To Fat Pathway

Metabolic Pathways

There are three groups of molecules that form the core building blocks and fuel substrates in the body: carbohydrates (glucose and other sugars); proteins and their constituent amino acids; and lipids and their constituent fatty acids. The biochemical processes that allow these molecules to be synthesized and stored (anabolism) or broken down to generate energy (catabolism) are referred to as metabolic pathways. Glucose metabolism involves the anabolic pathways of gluconeogenesis and glycogenesis, and the catabolic pathways of glycogenolysis and glycolysis. Lipid metabolism involves the anabolic pathways of fatty acid synthesis and lipogenesis and the catabolic pathways of lipolysis and fatty acid oxidation. Protein metabolism involves the anabolic pathways of amino acid synthesis and protein synthesis and the catabolic pathways of proteolysis and amino acid oxidation. Under conditions when glucose levels inside the cell are low (such as fasting, sustained exercise, starvation or diabetes), lipid and protein catabolism includes the synthesis (ketogenesis) and utilization (ketolysis) of ketone bodies. The end products of glycolysis, fatty acid oxidation, amino acid oxidation and ket Continue reading >>

    Just finished my 2nd week on the keto diet... been getting strong readings on the ketone-sticks...
    Here are my results:
    Weight lost so far = 2lbs
    Inches off waist = half an inch or so...
    Inches off chest = not even that ^^
    So I am wondering if anyone can advise me why the such crap results?
    I'm gona stick to the diet another week or 2, throw in 30mins cardio on all my non-lifting days (low intensity - about 120bpm on a bike)... see if that makes a diff.... maybe cut out foods sooner before bed...
    My first week on the diet i lost like 6lbs or so and that first inch off my stomach, but after the first carb up last week it all came back even tho I've been in ketosis the last few days... I aint sure
    My lifts are being mildly affected - I've lost that "bang" or explosiveness in certain lifts... so I dont know how some guys get so much stronger on keto while losing weight?
    I'll throw in the cardio etc and play with the meals a bit and give it another week or two, if not... I'll stop the diet and I'll just throw the carbs back in and eat 'normally' but in smaller / healthier portions, no carbs late at night.... and HIIT cardio on my non lifting days I am thinking...
    Unless someone has any suggestions as to why this is going so badly for me or anything else I could try - let me know.
    In the past before I started lifting I always had good weight loss results with just eating normally in smaller portions and doing lots of cardio... HIIT for example... but I never did it properly and did lost muscle mass with it... so if I do go back to that I'll have to do it differently this time around
    Let me know if you got any suggestions as to why the keto isnt going as planned...

    This isn't good to hear. I was going to start CKD tomorrow; on TKD currently.

    haha dont worry! it's probably just me! a lot of other guys i talk to say its fkn awesome and get awesome results
    Tho... I have not been doing cardio... and I think my meals may have been a tad larger than I need... so for every extra bit of protein I ate I had to equal out the fat to get that 70/30 fatrotein ratio in terms of cals... and for that extra gram of fat i get 9cals.. so the fat comes fast i guess...
    im gona weigh my meals out... I figured ~30g protein and ~30g fat every 2-3hours is fine... whereas my meals are larger and I sometimes get double that
    I'll throw in some low intensity cardio this week... I lift 3x a week so I'll do that for 30mins on the remaining 4days for 30mins @ ~120bpm and see what difference it makes

  • Fat To Glucose Pathway

    Gluconeogenesis (abbreviated GNG) is a metabolic pathway that results in the generation of glucose from non-carbohydrate carbon substrates such as lactate, glycerol, and glucogenic amino acids. It is one of the two main mechanisms humans and many other animals use to keep blood glucose levels from dropping too low (hypoglycemia). The other means of maintaining blood glucose levels is through the degradation of glycogen (glycogenolysis). Gluconeog ...

  • Insulin Receptor Signaling Pathway

    ABSTRACT Morphine analgesia is mediated principally by the μ-opioid receptor (MOR). Since morphine and other opiates have been shown to influence glucose homeostasis, we investigated the hypothesis of direct cross talk between the MOR and the insulin receptor (IR) signaling cascades. We show that prolonged morphine exposure of cell lines expressing endogenous or transfected MOR, IR, and the insulin substrate 1 (IRS-1) protein specifically desens ...

  • Insulin Secretion Pathway

    Insulin is a peptide hormone that is responsible for helping with the regulation of carbohydrate and fat metabolism, as it causes the cells of various tissues to absorb glucose in various forms from the bloodstream. Insulin is produced in the beta cells of the islets of Langerhans located in the pancreas, and is ready to be released into the body once it is cleaved from its signal peptide. Once glucose enters the body, it migrates to the pancrea ...
