just curious, cause im currently having a cheat day...and feasting like a mofo. but when dose the body decide to store fat? after you have shoved the 1000's of calories down your throat? is it a body-mind thing? or does the body take in as much calories as it can, then decides this excess isnt needed so its stored? if you can understand my 2 reasonings...toughts appreciated.

The answer to your question, I am afraid would require a book or two to thoroughly answer. With that said, know that your body is continually storing fat, burning fat, building muscle and burning muscle. The idea is to create an enviroment in the body to tip the scales towards burning more fat than storing and building more muscle than burning.

Eating lots of simple carbs or overeating at a meal for example will increase insulin levels, promoting fat storage.
