You're starving it.
Though Glucose can be derived from other food sources other than Carbohydrates, they burn their energy much quicker because they contain less Glucose ( than Carbohydrates ) to convert into *ATP.
*Often called the "molecular unit of currency" of intracellular energy transfer.
ATP transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism.
-Glucose is the main source of energy of the brain.
It is converted to ATP inside the brain.
-Glucose as the primary source of energy in the human brain.
-Glucose is the obligatory energy substrate for brain.
-Your brain uses glucose as its primary source of energy as well as oxygen.
Glucose is a primary source of energy for the brain, and hence its availability influences psychological processes. When glucose is low, psychological processes requiring mental effort (e.g., self-control, effortful decision-making) are impaired.
Though Fat and Protein can be converted to an Energy Source when Glucose is not available, over an extended period without sufficient Glucose to fuel The Brain:
0 hours: Glucose still used as primary fuel.
0–6 hours: Glycogen is broken down to produce Glucose for the body.
6–72 hours: Glycogen stores are used up and the body breaks down Fatty Acids. Ketone bodies are produced to help feed The Brain.
72 hours and on: Body cells start to break down and Proteins are used as a precursor to Glucose.
Your Brain will soon Flatline __________
You need the required amounts of Carbohydrates for your Brain.
They are the most "stable" source of Glucose.
That's All ... End Of Bio Lesson.
