Glucose - Storage Of Energy In Muscles Vs Fat Depos - Biology Stack Exchange

The regulation of metabolites and signals in general (glucose (Glc) or FFA in this case) and their selective uptake by cells, depends on the number (from few hundreds to many thousands) of receptors expressed and displayed to the surrounding environment, the type of receptors (what they can bind, and do as a result) and their properties. The regulation of glucose storage and use in muscle cells is determined largely by the dynamic energy state of the cell, which is can be described (to first approx at least) as the cellular equilibrium between ATP<-->ADP<-->AMP. The key here is to be aware that nothing is happening in isolation and the whole metabolism of the cell is one giant equilibrium. You make a change at one place that will result in proportional changes elsewhere to compensate. If you start exercising, that is using ATP rapidsly, suddenly AMP spikes, the increase in [AMP] results in the upregulation of key enzymes in Glycolytic and TCA pathways, which causes and increase in ATP producting. How much is made? Whenever possible always just enough enough to meet the demand (assuming cell has resources to supply it and manufacture it). Absolutely, in the same way, the energy sta Continue reading >>

    I've only done Keto for about a week and happy with the results, but my hands & feet are always freezing now! I used to have perpetually warm feet & hands but now they're always cold. Did this happen to anyone else? Did it change?

  2. happinessanddisaster

    I've gotten colder feet as I've gotten older, but they've basically turned to ice blocks on strict keto. My poor boyfriend is a furnace and entirely too tolerant of my snuggling in to thaw my extremities. I've only been strict keto for about a month so I'm hoping I go back to my normal soon.

Absorbing And Storing Energy: How The Body Controls Glucose

Absorbing and Storing Energy: How the Body Controls Glucose Editors note: Physicians have a special place among the thinkers who have elaborated the argument for intelligent design. Perhaps thats because, more than evolutionary biologists, they are familiar with the challenges of maintaining a functioning complex system, the human body. With that in mind, Evolution News is delighted to offer this series, The Designed Body. For the complete series, see here . Dr. Glicksman practices palliative medicine for a hospice organization. Just like a car needs the energy, in the form of gasoline, to run properly, the body needs the energy in glucose to survive. When we havent eaten for a while, our blood glucose level drops and our stomach is empty, causing the hunger center in our brain to tell us to eat or drink something with calories. As I have explained in my last couple of articles, the complex molecules that are in what we eat and drink enter the gastrointestinal system, where digestive enzymes break them down into simpler molecules so the body can absorb them. Carbohydrates are broken down into simple sugars, like glucose, which are then absorbed into the blood. Tissues, such as the Continue reading >>

    Feeling Ill on Keto Diet?

    I've been on Keto Diet (CKD) for 4 days now and feel dreadful. Since starting I've felt bloated, tired, bad nausea, headache and just generally pretty awful.
    Is this normal? If so how long does the nausea and lethagy last for? I was told 4 days max and this is my 4th day and if anything I feel worse, plus I haven't lost any weight (put on 1lb!).
    Cheers guys

  2. illiniStrive

    It's been 4 days.
    At this point, any significant drop on the scale would be water weight at most.
    Anytime you drastically change your eating there is going to be a period of adjustment in which you body is going "why the **** did you mess with ****???". Getting into ketosis for the first time is no exception.
    If it's really that bad just eat some damn carbos.

  3. csb5731

    I generally feel like 100% crap the first few days after keto-diet initiation, then improve to only 50% crappy after that. Some people say they feel awesome on keto, but I sure never have.
    Hence I consider about 80g carbs/day as low as I'll go anymore.

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.

    Excess carbohydrates and sugar lead to cholesterol and weight gain, explains Dr. Doni Wilson, which is why balancing blood sugar levels every day is so important. When you go to the doctor and get a cholesterol reading, you may be cautioned against eating high-fat foods. But very little fat from foods becomes cholesterol in your blood. What produces cholesterol is rather the excessive consumption of carbs at any one time. The cholesterol and trig ...

  • Can Blood Glucose Be Converted To And Stored As Fat?

    Abstract Insulin is required for carbohydrate, fat, and protein to be metabolized. With respect to carbohydrate from a clinical standpoint, the major determinate of the glycemic response is the total amount of carbohydrate ingested rather than the source of the carbohydrate. This fact is the basic principle of carbohydrate counting for meal planning. Fat has little, if any, effect on blood glucose levels, although a high fat intake does appear to ...

  • Is Glucose Stored As Fat?

    Your body uses mostly carbohydrates as well as fats for energy. Because the body doesn’t store carbs efficiently, they’re used first. Carbohydrates turn into glucose, which your body burns immediately or converts to glycogen to be stored in the muscles and liver for between meals. If you eat more calories from carbs or other sources than your body can use, the cells store the excess as fat. Of the three major nutrients -- carbohydrates, fat a ...

    In the last section, we learned how fat in the body is broken down and rebuilt into chylomicrons, which enter the bloodstream by way of the lymphatic system. Chylomicrons do not last long in the bloodstream -- only about eight minutes -- because enzymes called lipoprotein lipases break the fats into fatty acids. Lipoprotein lipases are found in the walls of blood vessels in fat tissue, muscle tissue and heart muscle. Insulin When you eat a candy ...

  • Can Blood Glucose Be Stored As Fat?

    Glycogen is a stored form of glucose. It is a large multi-branched polymer of glucose which is accumulated in response to insulin and broken down into glucose in response to glucagon . Glycogen is mainly stored in the liver and the muscles and provides the body with a readily available source of energy if blood glucose levels decrease. Energy can be stored by the body in different forms. One form of stored energy is fat and glycogen is another. ...
