going all carbs
this might be too technical stuff, but I was just curious, what happens to the carbs consumed in the following situation:
Let's say I eat a 10/10/80 split of carbs long term - so my glycogen is completely full. I ingest carbs before bed, so there's not a big chance that they will get burned for energy. I am still in a caloric deficit.
What happens to the glucose in my body? Unlike fats, glucose can't freely 'float' around the bloodstream, because it's quite toxic for the body. So insulin kicks in, ready to store it - but my liver and muscles are full already, and it can't store as fat either, as I am maintaining a negative energy balance.
I was looking through some studies, but they all discussed the excessive intake of one particular macronutrient only in a caloric surplus.
And I was wondering, what would happen if I eat chocolate muffins all day long (not that I would ever do it
) but within a reasonable deficit.
