How does fat reduction and weight loss work?
The Process of Fat Storage
When you eat, the presence of glucose, amino acids or fatty acids in the intestine stimulates the pancreas to secrete the hormone insulin.
Insulin is the key player in the control of the metabolism.
Insulin organizes the use of fuels for either storage or oxidation
Insulin tell the cells to do the following:
Absorb glucose, fatty acids and amino acids
Start breaking down (ENERGY)
*Glucose,fatty acids and amino acids
*Glycogen into glucose
* Fats into fatty acids and glycerol
*Proteins into amino acids
Start Building (STORAGE)
* Glycogen from glucose
* Fats (triglycerides) from glycerol and fatty acids
*Protein from amino acids
The Breakdown of Stored Fat
In the fat cell, other types of lipases work to break down fats into fatty acids and glycerol.
These lipases are activated by various hormones, such as glycogen, epinephrine and growth hormone.
The resulting glycerol and fatty acids are released into the blood, and travel to the liver through the bloodstream.
Once in the liver, the glycerol and fatty acids can be further broken down or converted to glucose.
Calories Need to Store Energy As Fat
Fat cells can take up glucose and amino acids, which have been absorbed into the bloodstream after a meal, and convert those into fat molecules. The conversion of the carbohydrates or protein into fat is 10 times less efficient than simply storing fat in a fat cell. In other words, if given a choice, a fat cell will grab fat in the bloodstream and store it rather than a carbohydrate because storing fat is a more efficient process.
