Nutrition Note: Sugar 201. How does your body regulate blood sugar? There are two key hormones – insulin and glucagon – that keep your blood sugar (glucose) in balance. As you digest carbohydrates, your blood glucose rises, which triggers your pancreas to release insulin. The insulin travels to your cells and tells them to take in the glucose where it can be used for energy. Liver and muscle cells can also convert glucose to glycogen for storage for later use. Several hours after you eat, the glucose levels in your blood start to fall below the desired range. Your pancreas now produces glucagon, a hormone that signals your liver and muscle cells to change the stored glycogen back into glucose and release it back into your bloodstream, where your other cells can use for energy. So how does excess sugar lead to weight gain? Once the liver is full of glycogen, it starts turning glucose into fatty acids for long-term storage as body fat. That’s why, in his “World Class Fitness in 100 Words,” Glassman gives this simple advice: “Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.”
