How Our Bodies Turn Food Into Energy

All parts of the body (muscles, brain, heart, and liver) need energy to work. This energy comes from the food we eat. Our bodies digest the food we eat by mixing it with fluids (acids and enzymes) in the stomach. When the stomach digests food, the carbohydrate (sugars and starches) in the food breaks down into another type of sugar, called glucose. The stomach and small intestines absorb the glucose and then release it into the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, glucose can be used immediately for energy or stored in our bodies, to be used later. However, our bodies need insulin in order to use or store glucose for energy. Without insulin, glucose stays in the bloodstream, keeping blood sugar levels high. Insulin is a hormone made by beta cells in the pancreas. Beta cells are very sensitive to the amount of glucose in the bloodstream. Normally beta cells check the blood's glucose level every few seconds and sense when they need to speed up or slow down the amount of insulin they're making and releasing. When someone eats something high in carbohydrates, like a piece of bread, the glucose level in the blood rises and the beta cells trigger the pancreas to release more insulin in Continue reading >>

    It varies for everyone. For me personally...it took 4 days to register anything and almost 2 weeks to get purple...I have never seen the darkest purple shade. Some people will tell you not to use the sticks, but I like them. My doctor told me to use them 3 times a day for a week to see when my body is the highest. Again...everyone is different. I am highest in the morning, but I hear some people are highest at night.

    Your body has to burn off all the stored sugar before it goes into ketosis. The shade on the stick should read ' moderate. ' Any higher means you aren't drinking enough water to flush out excess ketones. Too many ketones in your body is unhealthy. So don't think you have to be in the darkest purple range to be eating properly. Also the best time to test is first thing in the morning. Only diabetics need check more than once a day. On atkins we don't even need to use keto sticks. If you follow the rules you will be in ketosis.

When Does Glucose Convert To Fat?

Despite the fact that eating a jelly doughnut seems to deposit fat directly on your hips, converting sugar to fat is actually a relatively complex chemical process. Sugar conversion to fat storage depends not only upon the type of foods you eat, but how much energy your body needs at the time you eat it. Video of the Day Your body converts excess dietary glucose into fat through the process of fatty acid synthesis. Fatty acids are required in order for your body to function properly, playing particularly important roles in proper brain functioning. There are two kinds of fatty acids; essential fatty acids and nonessential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids refer to fatty acids you must eat from your diet, as your body cannot make them. Nonessential fatty acids are made through the process of fatty acid synthesis. Fatty Acid Synthesis Fatty acids are long organic compounds having an acid group at one end and a methyl group at the other end. The location of their first double bond dictates whether they are in the omega 3, 6, or 9 fatty acid family. Fatty acid synthesis takes place in the cytoplasm of cells and requires some energy input. In other words, your body actually has to expe Continue reading >>

    I am on day 1, I counted my carbs for breakfast and thought great, I've had 6 carbs - perfect for stage 1 of atkins... but, just for fun I counted the calories... I totaled at 750 calories.
    I think it'll be hard to stick under 2500 calories during the first week whilst I reach ketosis at this weight, is this to be expected? I'm a lump of a guy, 350lbs/6"4 and ex-powerlifter and rugby player, so I've always eaten alot... but now I'm genuinely worried with the fat contents and calories, even if I do stay under a carb limit?
    Any advice welcome!

  2. CabinFeverBob

    I know that 750 calories sounds like a lot for breakfast, but if there was enough fat in there, you might find that it'll hold you over until dinner. See how things work out for you.

  3. SeusGeus

    You are just starting and while you should be mindful of calories, don't let them be the end-all be-all of your diet. You should be most mindful of your body's hunger, unless that hunger is telling you to devour AN ENTIRE BOX OF KRISPY KREME DOUGHNUTS! Then your body is just lying to you. If you eat 3000-4000 calories this first couple of weeks, no worries. You're a very big guy. Just pick your macros and stick to them.
    I love using my fitness pal with a keto hack to help me plan meals and snacks. Days when I EAT ALL THE FOOD are no longer stressors for me. It's okay. It's also okay, if you have days where you just don't want to eat anything.
    My biggest challenge, after accepting that fat in my diet is actually a good thing, is learning to hear and respect my hunger cues again. I have a hard time not eating just because everyone else is or "it's time to eat."
    I love keto because it gives me 1 thing to worry about: macros.

6. Regulation Of Blood Glucose

Processes in which simple substances are built into more complex ones. Requires energy. Processes in which complex organic compounds are broken down into simple ones. Reactions that produce energy that is stored for later release in a molecule called ATP. Why must blood glucose levels be regulated? Glucose is the preferred energy source for the brain, and must be supplied constantly to it. Explain briefly how nutrients are used to supply energy to the body glucose is an important intermediate compound in the interconversions of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins. These conversions can occur after digestion and virtually all the molecules in the body are continually being broken down and rebuilt breakdown of glycogen in the liver to glucose. formation of glucose in the liver from fat and protein molcules polysaccharides and disaccharides are hydrolysed into monosaccharides glucose, fructose and galactose. Virtually all fructose and galactose is then converted in the liver to glucose. Carbohydrates in the form of glucose or glycogen are important energy sources. Glucose is the preferred energy source for cells, and the fate of absorbed glucose depends on the current energy needs of Continue reading >>
