Fuel-Use Sequential Steps
During Common Real World Situations
The most under-appreciated fact in the public's conception of nutrition is the fact that mobilized fats cannot cross the blood-brain barrier efficiently and are thus not readily utilized as a fuel source by the brain. This fact organizes the metabolic sequence by which we utilize and store our food-fuels throughout our body unless we engage in consistent physical activity, at which time skeletal muscle takes priority.
In the F.U.S.S. series you will discover that physical activity is not engaged by the body for weight loss, but for basic metabolic and mental functioning. In tandem with the Nourish Sleep learning section on circadian rhythm, this series offers a complete approach to health management and performance via the nutrition, exercise & sleep quality triad. See description and outline below.
Metabolism is situation-dependent. Even if you have mastered a complete list of "good" and "bad" macronutrient sources and percentages, you need to understand the basic shifts in fuel-utilization that the body transitions through under various situations, or else those "good" and "bad" nutrient ratios can lead you astray. This series provides that context. It demonstrates why dieting alone is not sustainable for health.
