Your muscle tissue is – outside of your brain – the most active tissue in your body, meaning that it’s consuming lots and lots of calories. It’s like a storage tank for sugar. Meaning that when we consume carbohydrates or sugar, the first thing the body tries to do is use that for energy. It’s only gonna use a little bit for energy at the present moment – but then it’s going to put it in our muscles.

  1. Thanks so much for all your wonderful info. Just thought you need to know that the Truly Free detergent website will not let me order the Buy 6 Get 6 Free offer on my iPhone. It only shows the BUY NOW button for the other 2 options of Buy 3 or Buy 5. Don’t think you want to be part of false advertising. I did inform Truly Free of this error through the chat on their website. Thanks again for all you do to keep us healthy!
