A Key to Nutrient Partitioning is… Lipoprotein Lipase?

Preface: My revelatory moment I’ve spent the good part of the last month looking for the ‘Holy Grail’ of Cheat Mode. Something that would influence nutrient mobilization into muscle cells and not fat cells. Exercise does this to a degree, and doing the exercise in an insulin resistant state (ie. the evening) potentiates this as […]

New Metabolic Pathways – Gluconeogenesis from Fatty Acids

This is a potential game changer: In silico evidence for gluconeogenesis in humans from fatty acids This study was technological and theoretical in nature. Using a flux model (to be described and linked to later) to determine conversion of one molecule into another (in this case, Acetyl-CoA into Glucose-6-Phosphate) it was determined that dietary fatty […]
