A Storage Form Of Carbohydrate Energy Glucose

Share on facebook

In this video I discuss the what are carbohydrates and the types of carbohydrates. The pros and cons to each type, and the best carbs to eat. Transcript Types of carbs So, what are the different types of carbohydrates? The answer to this question depends on who you ask. Some common classifications would be healthy and unhealthy, good and bad, slow and fast. In this video I am going to classify them as simple, complex and fibrous. Before we get into those classifications, we need to look at molecules. I know, fun stuff, but it will help you understand better. A monosaccharide is a single molecule, such as fructose, which is found in fruit. A disaccharide consists of 2 monosaccharide molecules, such as sucrose or table sugar. And a polysaccharide consists of many monosaccharide molecules, such as in whole grain pasta. Now that we have that out of the way, lets look at simple carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates are made up of mono and disaccharides, 1 or 2 molecules. Some foods include, fruits, milk, and foods with high amounts of added sugars. Typically simple carbohydrates are easily absorbed into the bloodstream because of their simple molecular structure. However, when you obtain

    Hello all,
    I’m a 5’4, 145 pound, 20 year old female, 27% body fat who works out (kickboxing) for about 1 to 1.5 hours a day. I’ve been on Dairy free Keto and doing 16:8 IF for about 3 weeks now and have gained 3 pounds. I was 142 when I started Keto. The macros I follow are 1207 calories, 90 g of Protein, 20 g of carbs and then usually around 80ish g of fat until I feel full. I meal prep ahead of time on Sundays so all my meals are planned and I don’t cheat. With lots of water, exercise, taking a multivitamin/B Complex/Green Tea Extract, dairy free (so no cheese or anything), or artificial sweeteners, I don’t know why I’m not losing any weight on Keto. I’ve seen this work for so many people and have been doing extensive research as to why it won’t work for me. I’ve tried recalculating my macros and gotten these 2 results:
    upping my calories to 1324 calories and 80 g of protein with 20 net carbs, 103 g of fat
    lowering my calories to 1177 and doing 103 g of protein, 20 net carbs and 73 g of fat.
    These two seem completely different macros and I don’t know which one to follow since what I do right now is in the middle of both.
    An example of lunch and dinner I have during IF are like 8 oz of ground turkey, 2 eggs and 1/2 an avocado for lunch and a tuna salad with spinach, flax seed, MCT oil and 1 egg for dinner. With TONS of water- I fill up my hydroflask (32 oz) around 5 times a day.
    I’m just saddened that I haven’t lost ANY weight on Keto when it seems to work for everyone else. I’ve gotten blood tests done as well and my hormones are fine. My goal weight is 120 so I do have a significant amount of pounds to go and would appreciate any advice from you! I have even stopped all nuts and nut butters because I read that those could be an impediment to weight loss. I’m considering doing an egg fast in a few days for 3 days to see if that brings about any change.
    If it helps, I never got the keto flu (maybe because I was around 40-50 g of carbs to begin with), I’ve been tested and found 0 hormonal or thyroid issues, I TRACK EVERYTHING, my ketostix say that I am in ketosis and don’t know what else to do at this point.
    Thank you so much for your time- your journey is SO incredibly inspiring and I would hope to some success on Keto. Open to ANY advice at all! Please help!

    My instagram ketokween1996 has a lot of my meals and their macros, calories and such! I made this to be more accountable of myself!

    I have some things that come to mind after reading your post.
    First, being in ketosis doesn’t mean being fat adapted. It takes time, 3 weeks is a short time. Your body needs to adapt to your new lifestyle. And I really mean lifestyle, you shouldn’t consider ketosis as a diet but a new way of life.
    Second, I think your protein intake is too high. You should eat 1 to 1,5 g of protein per kg of lean bodyweight. I don’t think that your lean mass is 90 kg . Decreasing your protein intake means increasing your fat intake.
    Third, you seem to be in the diet mentality like a lot of us women. You shouldn’t count calories. During your keto adaptation, your only concern should be to eat under 20g of carbs, moderate protein and fat to satiety.
    Finally, you should take your body measurements (chest, waist, hips, thighs and arms) to track your progress.

    I hope it helps. And keep calm and keto on.

What is GLYCOGEN? What does GLYCOGEN mean? GLYCOGEN meaning, definition & explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. Glycogen is a multibranched polysaccharide of glucose that serves as a form of energy storage in animals and fungi. The polysaccharide structure represents the main storage form of glucose in the body. In humans, glycogen is made and stored primarily in the cells of the liver and the muscles hydrated with three or four parts of water. Glycogen functions as the secondary long-term energy storage, with the primary energy stores being fats held in adipose tissue. Muscle glycogen is converted into glucose by muscle cells, and liver glycogen converts to glucose for use throughout the body including the central nervous system. Glycogen is the analogue of starch, a glucose polymer that functions as energy storage in plants. It has a structure similar to amylopectin (a component of starch), but is more extensively branched and compact than starch. Both are white powders in their dry state. Glycogen is found in the form of granules in the cytosol/cytoplasm in many cell types, and plays an important role in the g

Glycogen | Biochemistry | Britannica.com

Glycogen, white, amorphous , tasteless polysaccharide (C6H1005)n. It is the principal form in which carbohydrate is stored in higher animals, occurring primarily in the liver and muscles. It also is found in various species of microorganismse.g., bacteria and fungi, including yeasts. Glycogen serves as an energy reservoir, being broken down to glucose when needed. 18 references found in Britannica articles Corrections? Updates? Help us improve this article!

    i always sip 5g bcaa, 10l-glut 1g vit c whilst training, however i never really go above 8 reps, compounds only 5-6 reps.
    then 15g bcaa, 10 l-gult and 2g vit c sipped between meals.

    A Ketogenic Diet is a muscle-sparing fat-loss diet that works by forcing the body into ketosis through carbohydrate deprivation. Ketosis is a state where the body converts fat into ketones that the body can use for fuel when glucose (carbohydrates) are in short supply. It's metabolic trickery that has some major advantages over a regular, carb-based diets.

Storage Form Of Glucose

Biomolecules can be defined as the macromolecules which involve in biological reactions of living organisms. Proteins, carbohydrates, lipid, nucleic acid are good examples of biomolecules. Carbohydrate which is also known as sugar is energy provider to living organisms. Like other biomolecules, carbohydrates are also polymers of certain monomer units which are called as monosaccharides. The monosaccharides polymerize together to form polymers. The polymer with 2 -10 monomer units are called as oligosaccharides whereas polysaccharides contain a large number of monomer units. Oligosaccharides can be classified as disaccharide, trisaccharide etc. These names are given on the basis of number of monomer unit form after hydrolysis of oligosaccharides. So we can say that monosaccharides are simplest unit of carbohydrates and can further polymerize to form polysaccharides. The arrangement and bonding of monomer units determine the physical and biological activities of carbohydrates. Chemically monosaccharides are polyhydroxy carbonyl compounds which are bonded with each other through condensation process between OH and carbonyl group of two units. The bond between two monosaccharide units Continue reading >>

    I used to use the ketostix every morning -- was in moderate zone most days. After a while I stopped checking. That was about 2 months ago. Last week, I took my daughter to college orientation session, and had some chicken nuggets at Chik-Fil-A (my only cheat in about 6 months), so when I got home I decided to check. The result was negative ketones, so I tried to go back to induction levels for a few days. It's been a week, and they still register negative every morning. Could the sticks have "gone bad"? The scale is not changing too much -- the normal fluctuations, but nothing dramatic. Should I go out and get some more ketostix, or just stick with it and not worry so much?

  2. hayes

    The sticks have a 6month shelf life after opening. The least little moisture inside the bottle can effect the reading also as can other conditions.
    If your very curious, get a new bottle.
    Remember that some people never make the sticks change color.

  3. omgtwins

    Because Ketosis stix don't really do much when it comes to encouragment - I don't use them. There are way too many variables - you could be in ketosis and it may not show, you are'nt in ketosis but loosing weight...IMNSHO I stick to the scale once a week and the measurements every month - the clothes in the back of the closet that are slowly moving up are also better indicators. You know what you're eating - good or bad, so save some money and get rid of those sticks!
