Topics Covered:4 Basic Functions of Human Metabolism:
This week, I wanted to dive into how the human body actually works, and here's why...
I've worked one-on-one with over 600 clients in just the year 2018 alone! The biggest thing I have learned through this experience is...
There is an overabundance of information about "diets" on the internet.
There is a massive lack of information about how the human body actually works!!
If you do not understand how your body works on the most basic level, long-term success with any health & wellness protocol will be virtually impossible.
So I set out to teach you exactly how your own metabolism works, in a nutshell!
The 4 Most Basic Functions of Human Metabolism:
What Your Body Is Made Of:
Amino Acids link together to build Proteins
Proteins link together to build Cells
Cells link together to build Tissues
All of your organs are made of tissues - skin, bone, heart, lungs, eyelids, everything...
Fun Fact - ingested carbohydrates are not required for human survival either since the body can create its own glucose. Fancy word - gluconeogenesis…
I went on to describe the role that each macronutrient plays in energy production, catabolism, and anabolism. Step by step.
Protein: Can either be burned for energy in some very specific cases… or stored and used to rebuild and repair tissues. Catabolism - broken down to amino acids. Certain amino acids can be converted to glucose and burned for energy. Anabolism - amino acids are linked together to build and repair muscle tissue. Fats: Must be either burned or stored. Period. Catabolism - the triglyceride is broken apart. The fatty acids are converted to Ketones and burned for energy. Anabolism - the fatty acids are attached to a glycerol molecule and stored as triglycerides. Body fat. Fats are stored as triglycerides. Carbohydrates: Must be either burned or stored Period. < --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/theclovisculture/support
