At a cellular level, the ratios between oxygen and carbon dioxide will change based on what the body is burning and what it needs to get more energy.When you're walking on the treadmill, and if you get your heart rate up a little bit, more than likely you're burning fat.If you start running on the treadmill, you need more energy.The switch is going to happen.We're going to see the ratio change.You're going to start to burn more glucose, because you can get more energy from glucose than you can from fat.But fat is stable and steady and the older we get, we want to make sure we're efficiently burning fat to feel good and so that we don't just deposit fat.So it's all about the balance.When you're really working out hard, you become anaerobic.So those cells that are requiring a lot more energy, they go different route, an alternative route, lactic acid route as an example, because they can get more energy, at least temporarily.
