Why I Am Not Hungry in the Morning

For almost as long as I can remember, I have not been hungry when I wake up in the morning. This PubMed article may hold the key. The article suggests the body can store 15 grams of glycogen per kilogram of lean body mass. Naturally, I was curious how much this meant I could theoretically store.

As you can see, someone my size could easily store upwards of three thousand calories of glycogen. This kind of makes sense. Following a vertical growth spurt in my preteen years, I began to pack on lean muscle. By the time I was in high school, I had gained nearly 23 kilograms (50 pounds) of lean muscle mass. This larger capacity for glycogen storage was great for high school sports, but was not particularly useful for the relatively sedentary life of a college student or young engineering professional. The fact that I could probably go a day without eating carbohydrates escaped me for many years, but that is another post all together.

Stay well engineered,
