[IPk] reply to Adrian - ketones



Yes, Adrian! the brain comes first in the body's list of priorities and MUST
have adequate supply of glucose as it's quicker. However in cases of
starvation etc I think the body would have to use the stored energy from the
muscle tissue (arms and legs usually) if there was no glucose, but it would
take longer and then you've got the risk of the brain being compromised. Not
as effective.
