    "It does this by having the liver and the muscles store some of the excess glucose as glycogen. Thatís the muscle fuel that hard anaerobic exercise requires. Specialized beta cells in your pancreas sense the abundance of glucose in the bloodstream after a meal and secrete insulin, a peptide hormone whose job it is to allow glucose (and fats and amino acids) to gain access to the interior of muscle and liver cells.

    But hereís the catch: once those cells are full, as they are almost all the time with inactive people, the rest of the glucose is converted to fat. Saturated fat."

    I realize Jakey is quoting other sources that might disagree with this idea. I find it odd that people are on these forums when they do not even agree with the owner of the website? I can find countless doctors in addition to Doug Mcguff that will say the same thing about glucose and fat storage.
    That stuff was old hat two decades ago.

    Regarding CICO, I found this study interesting and distressing, as someone who's been trying to lose the last 25 pounds for the last year.
