In this video, we’re going to talk about what happens when you eat vs. when you fast.

– When you eat –
When you eat, you have glucose, amino acids, and fatty acids in your blood. In turn, this increases insulin. The first thing that happens is these nutrients supply the cell with energy. The extra energy turns into glycogen. Glycogen is the storage of glucose molecules.

To store glucose, you need potassium. When you store glucose, you also store water. For every one molecule of glycogen, you have 3.8 water molecules.

If you are trying to lose weight and you’re consuming carbs, keep in mind that it’s not just the glycogen that’s adding to your weight—it’s also all of the water that you retain inside your glycogen units.

You have about 100 grams of glycogen in your liver and 500 grams of glycogen in your muscle tissue. Any extra glycogen is turned into fat.

As you put on fat, you also develop insulin resistance.

– When you fast –
When you fast, this whole process works in reverse—your glucose level decreases, which causes a decrease in insulin. The body starts to use the excess glucose in the blood. Next, you start to use the glycogen reserves in your liver.

After 6-12 hours, your liver glycogen is depleted. Next, your body starts to convert stored fat into ketones. It takes 12-72 hours to go into ketosis.

After this, your body goes through autophagy. Autophagy is an efficient system that helps clean up old and damaged proteins as well as microbes.

Autophagy is very therapeutic—it helps regrow brain tissue, repair heart tissue, and strengthen your immune system.
