The complete breakdown of glucose via glycolysis and the TCA cycle can be written as: C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2 6CO 2 + 6H 2 0 This is fundamentally an exergonic process and yields free energy ( E = 686 kcal/mole glucose) Recall: rephosphorylation of ADP ATP requires 7.3 kcal per mole. Therefore: 686/7.3 = 94 moles (or molecules) of ATP. How many molecules of ATP are produced from the complete oxidation of glucose? Why the discrepancy?

Fat as a fuel substrate during exercise: Reminder: Fats stored as triglycerides FFA’s used during exercise Benefits of fat as a fuel substrate; Fat is an almost inexhaustible fuel source compared to carbohydrate High energy for weight. Fat has 9 kcal/gram versus about 4 kcal/gram for carbohydrate Fat utilization spares muscle glycogen

Downside of fats as a fuel substrate Lipid utilization is slow, and proceeds at rates much slower than carbohydrate utilization Fat catabolism proceeds only as an aerobic process. Lipid utilization is metabolically “costly” there are more steps more oxygen is necessary to oxidize lipid versus carbohydrate.
