How do fats enter the respiratory pathway?

Dear student

Please find your answer below to the asked query:
​​​​​​Fats are usually required as energy source, so the fat reserves are mobilized, moved out of adipose tissue, and broken down into glycerol and fatty acids in the liver by the process of lipolysis. This glycerol is thus connecting link between fats and respiratory pathway.
Glycerol is changed into one of the intermediate products of glycolysis, so enters the cell respiration pathway.
