They are changed to the compound acetyl CoA by losing another carbon atom, in the form of carbon dioxide. The acetyl CoA (which has only two carbons) then enters a cycle of reactions called the TCA (tricarboxylic acid) cycle (sometimes called the citric acid cycle or the Krebs cycle). In those reactions, the acetyl CoA combines with a four-carbon acid (oxalacetate) to form a six-carbon acid (citrate), and CoA is released. Several steps follow, with two carbons being lost as carbon dioxide. Eventually oxalacetate is formed, and that compound can combine with more incoming acetyl CoA to start a new cycle.
