Quit trying to intimidate with big words

I noticed some posters around here are trying to bully others by using big words we/I don't understand. That's not going to work, we are pretty smart and figure things out too

We should all be here to support each other on our journeys

    This post is ambiguous. Can you elaborate on what constitutes a big word?

    Like one poster here likes to throw around french words like "de novo lipogenesis" to get you to give up your argument

    just stop quarreling on the internet and it will be of no concern to you.

    The internet is one of the few refuges I have left to express the full breadth of my vocabulary.

    I was cooking with my daughter and granddaughter the other day and I asked if I could use their "colander". My daughter asked if I could use the other word for it so they could know what I was talking about. Oh yeah, a sieve. Sheesh. So many great words, so few places to use them.

    Oh, yeah. So many words, so little time. My head does that more often these days.

    Gonna need to see a peer reviewed study to confirm.

    Excuse me sir, do you have a problem with French people? Je me comprends pas pourquoi, nous sommes des personnes comme les autres... ;)

    You didn't already see the study that demonstrates de novo stultogenesis?

    Every time I don't know what something is I google. Wish I hadn't.
    The enzymatic pathway for converting dietary carbohydrate (CHO) into fat, or de novo lipogenesis (DNL), is present in humans, whereas the capacity to convert fats into CHO does not exist. Here, the quantitative importance of DNL in humans is reviewed, focusing on the response to increased intake of dietary CHO. Eucaloric replacement of dietary fat by CHO does not induce hepatic DNL to any substantial degree. Similarly, addition of CHO to a mixed diet does not increase hepatic DNL to quantitatively important levels, as long as CHO energy intake remains less than total energy expenditure (TEE). Instead, dietary CHO replaces fat in the whole-body fuel mixture, even in the post-absorptive state. Body fat is thereby accrued, but the pathway of DNL is not traversed; instead, a coordinated set of metabolic adaptations, including resistance of hepatic glucose production to suppression by insulin, occurs that allows CHO oxidation to increase and match CHO intake. Only when CHO energy intake exceeds TEE does DNL in liver or adipose tissue contribute significantly to the whole-body energy economy. It is concluded that DNL is not the pathway of first resort for added dietary CHO, in humans. Under most dietary conditions, the two major macronutrient energy sources (CHO and fat) are therefore not interconvertible currencies; CHO and fat have independent, though interacting, economies and independent regulation. The metabolic mechanisms and physiologic implications of the functional block between CHO and fat in humans are discussed, but require further investigation.
