    This short article explains something I have been wondering for a long time:

    How can blood-glucose remain stable during a fast without muscle having to be broken down. I didn't know that it's triglycerides which are in the fat storage. I didn't know that triglycerides are formed with a glycerol-molecule which can can be broken down into glucose.

    I always like it to understand these kind of things better than apparently most people who feel compelled to talk about it.
