I'm listening (oh it is torture folks!) to Dayspring & Taubes in the Specialty Health series on YouTube. In the second video, Fat One, around 10:40 mark for context, Taubes says that a research group from UConn (Volek I presume) did a study that showed that you'll have more saturated fat in your bloodstream if you eat a high carb diet than if you eat saturated fats. Anyone know what study he's referring to, and if this is indeed true? Thanks!
Also, so I don't waste an entire post on just this, let me throw out another topic for discussion. If sat fat is good for you and you need some of it (if you go back to around the 10 min mark you'll get this whole thing for context) ... why is high carb bad? Your body makes "pure" sat fats out of the excesses it chooses to do so with.
Our bodies make sat fats, cholesterol and glucose ... why is only the glucose bad in the mind of the low carber, or to be fair, sat fats & cholesterol to the low fatter?
