Your Transformation Starts Here: 7-Step Beginner's Guide
In an effort to dispense with excess glucose as quickly as possible, your body Burns it for immediate energy, stores it as glycogen in the muscles and liver, or stores it as fat in your fat cells. Your body can manufacture glucose from proteins and fats on demand, and in the amounts needed to keep her brain humming and energy level stable, through a process known as gluconeogenesis This elegant function happens in the liver where fats and protein either ingested or stored are converted into glucose and pumped into the bloodstream to keep you focused and energized.

Many experts believe that gluconeogenesis can supply you with up to grams calories worth of glucose per day if necessary. The liver, which is the main backup glucose storage facility for the brain and other glucose burning organs, can only store about a grams of glycogen— less than a day's worth. Your muscles can only hold another to grams. That's barely enough to run for the 90 minutes. The total amount of glucose dissolved in the bloodstream of a healthy non diabetic adult is equivalent to only a teaspoon 5 g. Much more than that is toxic The brain is the major consumer of glucose, needing maybe a hundred 20 grams a day.
Low-carb eating reduces the brains of glucose requirements considerably, and those who are eating very low carb and are keto adapted may only require about 30 to 50 grams of glucose per day to fuel the brain. Ketones are an energy-rich by-product of gluconeogenesis produced when the liver uses fat to fuel the conversion process Insulin resistance occurs when muscle and liver cells become desensitized to insulin storage signals due to excessive production A vicious cycle leading to exhaustion transpires as follows: first, the ingestion of processed carbs elevates blood glucose levels, creating an immediate boost in energy, mood, and cognitive function.
Within minutes, your elevated blood glucose prompts the pancreas to release insulin into the bloodstream. This is an essential function, because excess glucose in the bloodstream is toxic and can quickly become life-threatening if not removed as experience by diabetics.
