Neoglucogenesis

Just a quick thought about neoglucogenesis, aka self canabolism. Yes, that’s what happens when you don’t eat enough to sustain you body or activity level, your body eats itself. I know most people don’t give thought to that and for some reason, as humans, we tend to believe that starving ourselves or exercising extensively while eating minimally, is somehow going to get the desired results of a lean, lithe, muscular body…….it won’t. It will, however, get a skinny, undernourished body that has a retarded metabolism and eats it’s own muscle to supply glycogen for brain function…and remember, the heart is a muscle!! The practice of robbing Peter to pay Paul is NOT good when dealing with our wonderful, efficient machines!

    Maire, I guess canabolism should be cannibalism. Did you hear about the cannibal who thought she was a humanitarian?
