Why we eat too much fat

But is it true that when we eat carbohydrates, our bodies make a chemical reaction?
The answer may surprise you.
A new study has shown that carbohydrates in the diet increase the body’s ability to burn fat in the body.
The study, which is published in the journal Cell Metabolism, shows that when carbohydrates are mixed with fat, the body produces the enzyme ketone body which can break down fats.
When we eat carbs in combination with fat the body uses the chemical reaction to break down the fat, so we end up with more fat in our body, says Dr Robert Fennell from the University of Warwick.
This is because the body is able to burn the fat from the carbohydrates in its cells more efficiently.
This chemical reaction is the same in both fat and carbohydrate.
It also occurs in the liver, where fat is burnt, but this is more efficiently done in the fat cells.
In this way, carbohydrates increase the energy and metabolism of the body and the ability to use the energy from fat to fuel itself, says Fennel.
So what is the relationship between carbohydrates and fat?
It is complicated.
But the answer is that carbohydrates, when they are mixed in with fat from carbohydrates, increase the activity of a gene that controls fat burning.
This gene is called CREB, which stands for carbon-resistance gene.
It controls how fat cells respond to the presence of glucose, which can make fat cells resistant to being broken down by the body by the enzyme.
This can lead to a rise in fat and a subsequent rise in glucose.
This causes the body to release excess amounts of glucose into the bloodstream, which then causes fat cells to burn more fat.
It is also important to note that the more fat the cells contain, the more they will be able to metabolise the sugar in the blood.
So in a normal diet, the cells are not able to use fat as energy.
This explains why we find it hard to lose fat if we do not eat carbohydrates and we have to rely on our fat cells for energy.
The new study was led by Dr John Catt from the Medical Research Council (MRC) and was supported by the Wellcome Trust.
