Why is it that we need carbohydrates?
From glycolysis we get pyruvate, which is turned into Acetyl-CoA to be used in the krebs cycle. However, we also get loads of Acetyl-CoA from beta-oxidation. So why is it that we need glucose to fuel the krebs cycle?
Or rather, what are the end products mediated by glycolysis that we can't get from beta-oxidation?
