Alkolås och ketos

Posted by arne9 på 22 maj, 2007

Michael Eades har snappat upp historien om svensken som fick utslag på alkolåset när han bantade med Rössners Nutrilett-metod. Grejen är att svensken kom i ketos på grund av sin bantning och ketonerna i utandningsluften gav tydligen utslag på alkomätaren.

Eades förklarar hur kroppen omvandlar protein till glukos:
”Glucose is necessary for our survival, but it doesn’t have to come from our diet. Our bodies have all the metabolic machinery in place to produce all the glucose we need to function just fine without our having to eat a gram of the stuff. Now if we do eat some glucose in the form of sugar and/or starch, the body uses what it needs and stores the rest first as glycogen and then as fat. When we have little or no carbohydrate in our diet, the body reverses the process and breaks down the stored glycogen, which is released as glucose. When the glycogen is gone the body turns to protein as the raw material for glucose production. The conversion of protein to glucose takes place in the liver and is called gluconeogenesis, a word meaning literally the making from scratch, or genesis, of new glucose.”
