Fat burning, the science of fat.
Fats are one of the three main macronutrients, along with carbohydrates and proteins. Fat molecules consist of primarily carbon and hydrogen atoms and are therefore hydrophobic and are soluble in organic solvents and insoluble in water. Examples include cholesterol, phospholipids, and triglycerides. Source wikipedia.org
Why does the body store fat?
The reason we store fat is very simple, compressed high-quality energy that will be used once the carbohydrate level is very low or depleted.
The preferred fuel source for the human body is carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are essential, stored in your liver as Glycogen, in all muscles also as Glycogen and in the blood circulating to all cells in the body.
Most of the common diets today two or three meals a day include a lot of high carbohydrate foods and drinks and that is without additional snacks. Essentially what that means is the carbohydrate levels never drop to much below the maximum level. As soon as the carbohydrates level maxes out everything over will spike the blood sugar level and insulin is released in the blood to fix the problem. All the excess carbs are then removed from the blood and metabolized in fat cells for later use.
This process is repeated every day and extra fat is generated. This way we gain weight and never lose it. A high carb diet is, in my opinion, the reason for obesity.
