I am wondering about other effects long term or throughout the week or later in the day effects. It makes sense that exercise absorbs glucose because you are absorbing what you burn, but I am curious if other things are happening, i.e. chemicals being released or something else that creates a longer effect than that immediate glucose absorption.

I posted this on your blog as well, the reduction of fat cells around your cells requiring energy are allowed more flow due to exercise. This is two fold, the reduction of fat long term and the increase in circulation pressure that expands all the openings.

    I am sure there are more detailed information on this topic, but I can add; you will be more energetic with the lower levels of sugar in your bloodstream simply due to the consistency of your blood. This is due to the thickening of your blood into 'syrup' like consistency when higher in glucose. This is partially why you get tired, because your heart is pushed to it's limits. Also why the extremities have less circulation and more susceptible to infection.
