    I agree with all your post. This is the only line I would challenge a bit.

    Choco is right. PUFAs are easily oxidized, some of them just need too much light exposure to become rancid.

    Yes, but without insulin it just takes longer. That's why carbs + fat is an explosive combination.

    According to me, too. On the same amount of calories (counting calories s*cks, but that is to explain it in terms everybody understand), high-fat/low-carb promotes fat loss.

    Where are the sugars then?

    Not in the muscles (because as long as they are full of glycogen they can't take more).

    Hi Gorbag,



    I absolutely agree. Eating too many calories will make the body store them, no matter they come from carbs or fats. That's evolution, we are meant to survive periods of famine.
