    Oh my.

    What kind of "batter" are they coated in?

    It was. I ignored it.

    I've never done "stimulants" before and I wanted to see what the effects of a full dose would be on me. Had I encountered any negative effects, I would have decreased the...

    What do you mean "freaked out?"

    I started off with the full dose and, other than not being hungry at all, I haven't had any bad effects. I've even been able to nap within a couple of hours of...

    Right, what I am saying is that FAT is not "muscle fuel," GLYCOGEN is.
    Breathing takes glycogen.
    A pound of muscle, just sitting on your arm takes glycogen.
    Running a marathon takes glycogen.

    No.

    the "fuel" is ALWAYS glycogen.

    It's where that fuel comes from that changes. See?

    Short, hard work, your body can fuel itself with the glycogen in the muscles.
    Longer effort, it needs...

    Nope, you're technically still off.

    Work intensity does not change the basic biological function of muscles.

    Muscles burn glycogen.

    I agree with home yield.

    That said, strictly speaking, she's right.

    That's right.

    In American English, "health" is defined as simply the slowest possible rate at which you will die.
