Today in Exercise and Physiology class we were watching a video and they were talking about nutrition.
The dude on the videotape said that when atheletes and people who are fit consume simple sugars (for dinner let's say) that the sugar would go straight to their muscles for energy and wouldn't be stored as fat and they could use the sugar the next day. However, when overweight unhealthy people consumed simple sugars the sugar would go straight to their fat cells and not be stored as glycogen.
Well it makes sense to me with the fat people. But why would athletes and people with good cardiovascular health be any different? I was thinking insulin sensitivity but I'm not sure.
