How does the human body turn carbohydrates and sugar into fat?

You don’t need to say that extra carbs and sugar is stored in body and turned into fat because I already know. When one eats too much and not exercise to burn fat, the stored sugar turns into fat and one gains weight.

I just wanted to know how the body does that and its process. And why does the body turn sugar and carbs into fat?

    It depends upon the carbohydrate and amount consumed at the same time.

    If its a refined carbohydrate with no fiber like a white flour product such as a cookie, biscuit or a white potato product like crisps and or chips or fries, then the process works to convert fat based on triggering blood sugar.

    Example of the blood sugar model is as follows:

    Eat slice of cake or you ate too much on your plate with healthy foods.

    Step 1 – Blood sugar spike from carbohydrate overload

    Step 2 – Pancreas reacts

    Step 3 – Pancreas creates Insulin, but too much insulin from carbohydrate overload or refined carbohydrate like cake or a cookie or white potato.

    Step 4 – This high insulin spike causes the liver to produce too many triglycerides. Triglycerides are fat in the blood.

    Step 5 – Triglycerides cause fat stores which cause the hanging fat on the body. They form fat cells.

    On certain people this insulin spike causes “Hypoglycemia” which is a fancy word for Low Blood Sugar. Causes tingling lips, tingling legs, fainting like spells, and lethargy.

    The rebound of Hypoglycemia triggers a hormone from your adrenal glands called “Cortisol” which also signals fat stores around the stomach, waist and hips.

    How to avoid this problem?

    Eat high fiber carbohydrates. Snack healthy in between meals, and eat just enough of healthy foods on your plate to feed one person.

    Eat foods closest to their natural state.

    Stay away from white flour products and white potatoes.

    Google “Low Glycemic Eating Chart” to see what foods to choose from.

    Glyco means sugar. Glycemic means sugar reaction. Either high or low. High for refined foods and low for whole foods.

    Sugar is a carbohydrate and does indeed contain calories.
    Carbohydrates generally have about 4 calories (or 17 kilojoules) per gram.
    Sugar that is in processed food (and some fruits) will be absorbed into your blood stream quickly and used as an immediate source of energy by your brain and muscles. Generally that which is absorbed fastest is used first by the body.
    Excess intake of sugar will not make it turn into fat as that is not chemically occurring in the body – what happens instead is that you do not use the other macro-nutrients that you absorb such as fat and this then contributes to weight gain.
