Correct. As long as your [sugar intake < (blood sugar + glycogen depots) - sugar energy output] you should be fine. If you consume more than this, the excess glucose will be transformed into bodyfat. To do that, you need fat(ty acids), so glucose -> glycerol + fatty acids = bodyfat. If there is no fat available to store the excess glucose, you will mess up your insulin system.Roland wrote:As long as I'm burning the energy intake, my pancreas should be ok, I guess...
In your case it seems that the ingesting of oil made it possible for your body to actually store the excess glucose, meaning that your intake was to high to begin with.
Controlling the intake of sugars is easier to do in small amounts, if you're used to it. So starches (including Maltodextrin), long chains of glucose, are far more difficult to judge. Starch is broken down into maltose and then into glucose.
I'm not sure about fructose in this sense, because it uses a different digestive route in the body. It might be that fructose will be transformed into glycogen right away, to be used when the blood sugar level is low.
