Medical student in the United Kingdom, having previously studied Biology at A-Level. I spend a good deal of my time volunteering with St John Ambulance, which I find fantastically rewarding and when I'm not writing essays I'm handling flags here on Bio.SE.

comment Under what conditions does the body burn fats, proteins and carbohydrates?
@Chris I would anticipate greatly more from fatty acids than protein breakdown until one runs out of fat. You'll be able to release enough energy through fatty acid usage for any intensity of exercise assuming that you still have fat stores available.
