Carbohydrates As It Relates To Metabolism

To have a knowledgeable grasp as to how our body relates itself to metabolism is to be aware first of all that our body cells are the ones that metabolize energy derived from sources of energy that our bodies eat.

These sources of energy are carbohydrates, protein and fats. Our body metabolizes these sources of energy accordingly depending on its forms.

A form of carbohydrates can be metabolized by our body easily in a short period while another form can be metabolized in a much longer period of time.

We get our energy from carbohydrates. It fuels our body to do the physical activities of our daily life.

The carbohydrates that our body has from the foods we eat are broken down to bits through digestion and refined until these carbohydrates become sugar scientifically known as glucose, fructose and galactose.

Almost as soon that these carbohydrates has been converted to their sugar form, they are immediately absorbed and used by the body as energy.

Any remaining amount will be deposited to the muscle and liver areas and will now be known as glycogen. Glycogens deposited in the muscles will now act as the exercise energizer.

Glycogen is the energy that fuels the muscles to make the body run, swim, climb mountains, do push ups, play basketball, and other muscle related physical activities.

Without glycogen, the body’s muscle will not have the energy to make the body run, swim or even walk. It is then no wonder that advertisers would term glycogen as the exercise energizer.

A point will come however, when the stored glycogen in the muscles and the liver becomes saturated.

This situation would usually occur when the body does not have physical activities like doing exercises and other physical activities that will involve the muscle to make use of the stored energy in the form of glycogens.

If this situation happens, the excess or unused sugar from carbohydrates will be stored by the body in the form of fats. An excessive intake of carbohydrates without exercise for a long period will lead to obesity.

Therefore if you do not want to be obese, you have to really force yourself to continuously exercise in order to prevent fats build up from your intake of carbohydrates.

But if you think you are still incapable of having a continues or rigid exercise, you can start on a low level form of exercise like walking or jogging. Be sure you cut down on your carbohydrates intake so as to minimize fats build up.

On the other hand, for those who wish to cut down on carbohydrates intake so as to preclude any chance of being obese, always remember that too much is bad and too little is also bad.

Meaning, that if you do not want to have fats build up in your body because of carbohydrates intake, all you have to do is make sure that you will be taking in just the right amount of carbohydrates.

Do not go to the extent of eating very little amount of carbohydrates or none at all.
