Do Our Bodies Convert All Food (fats, Carbs And Proteins) To Glucose, Or In Other Words, Do Our Cells Burn Anything Other Than Glucose?

Answered May 12, 2015 Author has 219 answers and 550.2k answer views Our body doesn't convert all the carbs, proteins and fat we eat to glucose! Carbohydrates: Only those carbohydrates which are digestible by our gut are used, remaining else (cellulose for that matter) remains in the gut, absorbs water and aids in proper digestion; the so called roughage. Yeah, the digested ones which may either give glucose, fructose or galactose as the final product, are all converted to glucose. Proteins: All amino acids obtained from the protein digestion are not converted to glucose, only a few of them are, remaining is converted to ketone bodies (another energy suppplier as glucose). Fats: Fats (neutral fats or triglycerides) are broken down into fatty acids and glycerol. From this, only glycerol and odd chain fatty acid (cf. even chain fatty acid) can produce glucose. So, what's with this compulsion of glucose to be present in the blood in the right quantity always? "Lest the brain will be starved, for it needs glucose from blood", you would have heard. Partly true because brain can live by utilizing ketone bodies as well. But for an optimal neurotransmitter (chemical signals aiding communi Continue reading >>

    How does ketosis occur due to low insulin rate?




    1 Answer







    Type 2 diabetes is a condition where the glucose metabolism has gone all awry due to either the body not being able to produce enough insulin or the cells not responding sufficiently to insulin. This condition can result in a host of health complications which can range from mild to life threatening. One such complication is called diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and if untreated can lead to coma and death.
    When your body produces little or no insulin, it starts burning fats for fuel. This is because insulin is necessary for pushing glucose (the preferred energy source) inside muscle cells. In the absence of glucose, fats are broken down by cells to derive energy. During this process, acidic substances called ketones are formed which start piling up inside the blood stream. This accumulation leads to ketoacidosis.

Conversion Of Carbohydrate To Fat In Adipose Tissue: An Energy-yielding And,therefore, Self-limiting Process.

Conversion of carbohydrate to fat in adipose tissue: an energy-yielding and,therefore, self-limiting process. A theoretical analysis of the energy metabolism associated with the conversion ofglucose to fat is presented. In tissues where the pentose cycle furnishes some ofthe NADPH required for fatty acid synthesis, this conversion is an ATP-yieldingprocess. In rat adipose tissue the maximal rate of glucose conversion to fat can be quantatively predicted on the basis of the tissue's ability to use the ATPwhich is generated in excess during this conversion. The energy-generating natureof this process provides the means for a type of regulation which depends onmetabolic state and which, during fasting, contributes to the sparing ofcarbohydrate. Impairment of lipogenesis in the fasting state is attributed to adecrease in the activity of the malate cycle and to the presence of free fattyacids. However, rather than by inhibiting specific enzymes, it is by virtue oftheir quality as substrates for energy production that free fatty acids and theirCoA derivatives appear to inhibit de novo lipogenesis. The regulatory phenomenadiscussed here may explain the failure of the attempts made to ide Continue reading >>

    How to know if you are in ketosis.

    Well i am sure there is another post like this, because i read it before, but i dont remeber exactly what it said and I cant find it.
    The quesiton is just as the title says, how can i know if i am in ketosis or not?
    I have been reading and the people says that at the second day, or thirth day or X day they get in to ketosis, but how they know that?
    Thanks

    If you have never been in Ketosis buy some keto sticks. You can pick them up at most drug stores in the US and Canada. Ask the pharmisist if you can't find them on the shelf. Usually they will be with diabetic supplies. Lots of people will say not to waist your money but they are cheap and I get an instant gratification when I see the test strip turn color. Besides, it is always nice to see evidence that your effort is paying off.
    -odd metalic taste in your mouth and bad breath.
    -Odd smelling urine is another symptom.
    -You will pee like a race horse.
    - I also get cotton mouth (dry mouth and really foamy saliva). Not sure if anyone else gets this.

    Normally i pee like a race horse for 2 days after my carb up which means im back in ketosis, Breath smells like crap, my wee smells like meat, and i find i get really de-hydrated...

How Does Fat Get Converted To Calories?

Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own. Answer by Bart Loews , passionate exercise enthusiast, on Quora : How is fat being converted into calories at cellular level? First lets get some term clarification: A calorie is a measure of energy, specifically heat. Its a measurement of an indirect use of your biological fuels. Your body doesnt really convert things to calories, it converts them to ATP which is used as energy. Calories are, sadly, the best way we have to measure this process.Ill assume that the point of this question is: How does fat turn into energy? Fat is a term used interchangeably with lipids and with adipose tissue. Lipids are molecules that consist of a hydrophobic tail with a hydrophilic head. Because of this polarized set up, they are able to cluster together to form barriers between water and non water, like bubbles. Your cell membranes are composed of lipids. Adipose tissue is what makes you fat. Adipose tissue stores lipids in the form of triglycerides or 3 fatty acid chains with a glycerol backbone. These triglycerides are what is broken down to be used for energy. Adipose tissue is made up of collections of adipocytes or fat cells. Adipose t Continue reading >>

    Raspberry ketones while breastfeeding

    My baby girl is 8months old and i have been fully breastfeeding since she was born, altho i reduced the feedings to 3 times a day(morning, afternoon and evening) as shes eating solid food for lunch and dinner and cereal in the morning. I have been very depressed because of my appearance. I weight 15stones and o feel fat and ugly. I dont even leave my house very often because i get embarrassed to be looked At. i heard about Raspberry Ketones and done some research and most reviews seems to be very positive. I desperately want to try it as im currently doing 30min running every day and eating so little. I actually Always had pretty good eating habits but i keep "growing" !!! Now, i want to know if it would be ok to use the raspberry ketones 3 or 4 hours before breast feeding... After 3 hours i believe there is no risk passing it to my baby. But i would like to hear some honest opinions. I dnt want to seem selfish and put my baby in risk to change the way i look but i need to help myself because looking in the mirror is killing me inside. Thanks everyone. Xx

    Hi Jaqueline,
    I am sorry to hear that you are feeling so low....it sounds as though you have been trying really hard to make changes and it is very demoralizing not to get the results you were hoping to see. I really feel for you.
    Have you had a check up with your GP and asked for some help at all? Is it possible that you are using a contraceptive that could affect your weight or that you have low thyroid levels? Has your menstrual cycle returned yet?
    There is some information and support for you here Jaqueline...and you might be surprised to know that lots of slimming clubs have a programme designed to be safe for breastfeeding mums.

    It is very common to put on weight, or find it hard to loose weight, when you feel depressed and low. It is also hard when you are not sleeping well. Could this low feeling be making it harder for you Jaqueline?

    The amount of fat in the average diet and the amount of stored fat in the average body make the notion of converting that fat into usable energy appealing.

    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 ...
