    Fatty tissue is stored under the skin. Some people seem to store it in some places, others get build up of fat in other places on the body. Theres different types of fat, some more healthy than others. Fat is bassically and energy store in the body, and when the body needs energy to operate but it's used all the energy from food in the gut, then it will take fatty and turn that into energy, as i'm sure you understand already.
    The quickest way to burn fat is to exercise regularly and strenuosly, make the body work hard so that it uses up it's energy store of fat.

    You will not get fat if you eat good food, if you eat crap fast foods you will be unhealthy and get fat.

    Increase your motivation, exercise and eat good natural food (with natural fat such as omega3 in fish).

    One dietry technique to reduce the build up of fat is to eat small meals, but eat them often. If you eat a snake every 2 hours then the body gets used to the idea that it will have food coming to it regularly, and it will not need to store fat.
    If you pig out with 3 large meals every day, then sit around digesting it, the body will have a surplus of energy that it will store as fat. If you eat a big meal but then dont eat for ages and get hungary, the body will think 'im starving, next time I get food im going to save some for later' so it's best to eat often, but not too much, and eat healthy fruits nuts fish.

    Another thing to consider once you get slim, is too fast occassionally for as long as you can manage. Food have a lot of toxins which get stored in fatty cells. when you starve the body it gets the chance to use up and expel these toxins, reducing your chances of damaging the body and getting an illness.

    we don't do homework.

    You can however write your paragraph and perhaps someone here will be kind enough to look it over and make suggestions or point out misunderstandings you might have.

    I wouldn't recommend this! haha

    adikboy, a couple of things you could read up on are 'beta oxidation' and 'gluconeogenesis'. That should get you started

    Haha, I noticed and considered amending this typo with a new post.

    I ofcourse meant snack...

    Adik I don't do technical information to help with homework (mainly coz I don't know it).

    How did Fat (or his native Vietnamese spelling "Phat") get burned? By buying stereo equipment off the back of a truck. Turns out there was nothing but bricks in the boxes.

    I don't get it, someone asked a question and nobody answered it, even though i don't believe this is a homework question.



    At the end of glycolysis, pyruvate is formed. This pyruvate can be stored, (acetyl coa). And it will be stored as C2H2 or C2H4 in chains, which are fatty acids, which make up most of the mass of fats.

    Due to beta oxydation these fats will be turned into acetyl coa again ready for our citric acid cycle to use..

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    That's the process by which our body converts glucose to pyruvate (glycolosis) before sending it to the mitochondria for further processing and ATP production.

    I would have answered if I knew the material...instead I just racked up another low quality post with a stupid joke.

    Hahaaa.

    I didn't get the joke... I was thinking 'who is 'phat'? is this the leader of vietnam?? at least if I don't get it then I don't realise its a poor joke.
    I did almost tell you to go to the joke thread though.

    Did I not answer the question? I said beta oxidation as you have. I also mentioned gluconeogenesis which you didn't. Furthermore, you posted a diagram of glycolysis, rather than the other processes mentioned. Perhaps I’m being dim but why is glycolysis relevant to burning fats? (other than all biochem processes being relevant to one another in terms of shunts/regulation/intermediates)

    i started checking all parts, but i was lazy and stopped after glycolysis.. Gluconeogenesis isn't to well known to me, does it occur without beta oxydation? if not, then it's not relevant as an addition eiter.

    Why did you include glycolysis at all?

    Yes gluconeogenesis is relevant. The fatty acids of triglycerides will go through beta oxidation but the glycerol can be converted to glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate which can enter gluconeogenesis (producing glucose which can then be used where appropriate). The glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate can also enter glycolysis, this is the only way I can see glycolysis as being relevant to the original question and given that you didn’t want to include gluconeogenesis I’m not sure why you were emphasising glycolysis??

    True, i added it in the double weigth of things. To be dismantled, it first needs to be created.

    I find it hard to respond to threads which could be answered with a few keystrokes on Google.

    I agree....especially if it's clearly a "drive-by questioning" and we will never hear from the OP again. I'm far more forgiving of members I know, and don't mind going out of the way to answer the question if I know the subject matter...even if the answer is easily googled.
