Nutrition Day 11 17:21 Why do we eat sugar? o Sugar is a surrogate for energy h2o + co2 +photons = c6h1206 + o2 – co2 o glucose forms ATP—adenosine triphosphate o We then work ADP + P—adenosine phosphate o We then eat and the process is repeated Anaerobic metabolism o Does not require breathing Aerobic metabolism o Requires oxygen and breathing Pyruvate(C-C-C)-------------------------Acetyl CoA (C-C) Acetyl CoA goes through the Krebs cycle o oxaloacetate  (C-C-C-C-) o citrate (C-C-C-C-C-C) unstable  loses a carbon in co2 energy picked up by NAD+ which creates NADH o alpha-Ketoglutarate (C-C-C-C-C) loses a carbon in co2 NAD+, NADH o Succinate(C-C-C-C)
