    Carbohydrate breakdown in the body


    Is there a specific amount of carbs the body can break down at once? I know I've read about how the body can only process so much protein during digestion at once. I'm just figuring there might be something like that when it comes to carbs. Thanks for the insight in advance!

    whatever doesnt get used up gets converted to fat. just like an excess of any other macronutrient either over the course of a day or per meal.
