How Can I Use My Stored Fat For Energy?
- When low on fuel, the body draws on its stored fat for energy.
- Fat cells respond to the call for energy by dismantling stored fat molecules and releasing fat components into the bloodstream.
- Upon receiving these components, cells break them down further into fragments. Each fragment is combined with a fragment derived from glucose, and the energy-releasing process continues, liberating energy, carbon dioxide, and water.
- Without glucose (carbs), fat is incompletely broken down to ketones
