60pack's Journal, 29 July 2019

I thought I heard here the other day that unused protein grams are NOT easily transferred to increased body fat stores? Pooped out? Some discussion?

There's a process called gluconeogenesis, whereby the body breaks down proteins and makes glucose. There are a few cell types that must run on glucose (most cells can switch over to run on ketones); this is how the body creates glucose for those cells. It's important for type 2 diabetics who are using keto WOE to reverse T2D, to avoid eating excess protein because that can raise blood sugar.

Yeah protein metabolism is a nice example of how the calorie theory is not correct. You probably spend more energy metabolising them and also if there is excess they may be expelled.

liv001 We has this conversation about a week ago. You participated in it. Protein metabolism costs 1 calorie for every 4 calories taken in ..... the cost of protein metabolism is 25%. If more protein is taken in than is required for daily needs, the excess is broken down to carbohydrate fragments and urea. Urea is eliminated by the kidneys. The carbohydrate fragments are transformed to glucose by the liver. This process is called gluconeogenesis. If this glucose is not needed for immediate use, it is stored as fat if glycogen stores are full. Nothing is pooped out.

But what I’m hearing is, it is a longer process that is more steps to storage in the body in the meantime the body has another chance to burn it.
