Fat is the secondary source of energy for your body (dietary sugars and starches being the first). You need blood sugar to keep all body processes going. Dietary energy sources give out after 10 minutes or so of heavy work or exercise, and then it switches to taking energy from the tissues around them, usually the fat stored in the tissues. It takes this stored fat and converts it into sugar, which is then used for energy.
