First off, I want to make it crystal clear I am not calling any idea dumb. I am simply trying to understand how things work.
So I’m in my physiology class, and I see a chart of the metabolic pathways of the human body. It was amazing what your body can create from what it has.
So while I’m sitting there, I start to question why it should REALLY matter if you are on a predominantly fat or predominantly carb diet, or if the carbs have a low GI. Your body is more than capable of getting its carbs from its own fat stores, and as long as the caloric intake is equal to your needs, there shouldn’t be a problem. Combine your designated amount of fat and/or carbs, supply the body with all the amino acids it needs to create muscle, and there shouldn’t be a difference, right?
Now I think some of my answer has to do with insulin levels, but try as I might I cannot get enough info off the net on what that answer is.
If someone can tell me what the difference is between eating available carbs and turning body fat into carbs, I would really appreciate it.
