How Do Carbohydrates Turn Into Fats?

Originally Answered: Do carbs turn into fat? Any carbs which are not used immediately or stored (as others have described well) in small quantities in the muscles and liver, are converted into body fat. So are excess fat and protein that don't get used relatively quickly. The problem with carbs is that they raise insulin levels. The body needs insulin to get sugar (from carbs) out of the bloodstream and into body cells where it can be burned for fuel. But for some people--many people, especially those who eat lots and lots of sugar--their body becomes insulin-resistant, and the cells refuse to let the blood sugar in. So the body makes even more insulin, trying to get the sugar into the cells, and this cycle keeps building. (Eventually the pancreas wears out from producing so much insulin, and the person develops Type 2 diabetes...which then gets treated with increasing amounts of injected insulin....) Insulin also tells your body to store fat. So when your insulin levels are always high--because you have become insulin resistant, or because you eat carbs all day long without stopping--you are always storing your extra calories, instead of burning them. Your body literally cannot b Continue reading >>

    Don`t forget, you can cut them in half and get double value!

    Haven't used ketostix yet. Is this true? Just cut em in half and instead of 50 you have 100, tinier ketostix, the only downside being a slightly higher risk of peeing on your hand?

contains twice as much energy as carbs, they are harder to catabolize. is a form of lipid catabolism. catabolized into glycerol and fatty acids by bile and lipases. This is promoted by cortisol, epinephrine and norepinephrine. is converted to glyceraldehyde 3 phosphate, part of the glycolysis pathway. If individual DOES NOT need ATP, G 3-P converted into glucose to be stored for later! if individual DOES need ATP, G 3-P will undergo glycolysis, producing pyruvic acid which will continue through the steps of cellular respiration. is called beta oxidation (occurs in inner matrix of mitochondria) fatty acid chain broken down into small fragments consisting on two carbon atoms. The two carbon fragments are attached to coenzymes A to form acetyl coenzyme A which can enter the krebs cycle and continue through cell respiration. hepatocytes can take two acetyl Co A molecules and condense them into X acid this will occur if there are many acetyl CoA molecules in blood. Some acetoacetic acid is converted into B-hydroxybutyric acid and acetone (all three substances called ketone bodies) Detone bodies diffuse into the blood and can be used by other cells to make acetyl CoA again. excessive pr Continue reading >>

    So I tried Keto WOE for about 3 months. I really only had about 5-10 lbs to lose shooting for sub 10% bf. It was great for the first month, then it took another month to nail my electrolytes, then the 3rd month was when I started waking up in the middle of the night with nausea. Decided the throw in the towel.
    The first time I ate carbs again I almost passed out from reactive hypoglycemia. As I slowly started to eat more carbs it got better but I thought i was dying the first time lol.
    Now I get really bad low blood sugar between meals (never happened before Keto), indigestion almost every time I eat, horrible gas, and still occasionally wake up in the middle of the night with nausea... I have been taking probiotics etc and my carbs are seldom sugar, usually complex.
    Anyone else had Keto radically chance their digestive system for the worse? I feel like it's given me SIBO or leaky gut or something but everyone seems to claim it fixes those things (which i never had before anyways).
    I wish i could just go back to how i felt before. WHen I could eat normally.
    And NO, I am not just "noticing how shitty carbs made me feel before", I felt great before :P

    Have you seen a doctor?

    Not yet but it will go like this:

This review is focused on the fate of dietary glucose under conditions of chronically high energy (largely fat) intake, evolving into the metabolic syndrome. We are adapted to carbohydrate-rich diets similar to those of our ancestors. Glucose is the main energy staple, but fats are our main energy reserves. Starvation drastically reduces glucose availability, forcing the body to shift to fatty acids as main en Continue reading >>

    Sick child with normal blood sugar but ketones in urine?

    My 5yr old has type 1, and has the flu. Her blood sugar is pretty normal to sometimes low as she does not want to eat but is drinking fluids. I tested her urine for ketones and they are 2+. I was told to increase her bg and give insulin every hour. does this make any sense?

  2. foxl

    2+ seems high. Ketones can simply indicate that you are burning fat as fuel -- either your own or dietary.
    My non-D daughter, now 10, used to get horrible ketone breath because when ill, she would NOT EAT!
    But GIVE INSULIN every HOUR??? No.

  3. furball64801

    I would not think insulin every hour could be regulated and you would have the stacking affect, make sure she has plenty of fluid.
