how do herbavores metabolize their fat stores?
One of the common objections I hear to the lipid hypothesis is that it makes zero sense that humans would evolve to store and use saturated fat as energy when it concurrently clogs and destroys our arteries.
It make sense... but I suppose a counter argument would be that certain herbivores store calories as fat, yet are supposed to consume a plant based diet. Of course of the top of my head I think of the fact that most herbivore infants consume milk that is loaded with saturated fat to re-counter that.
I tried finding an answer online to this question but couldn't. Does anyone here know? Do herbivores metabolize body fat differently than carnivores do?
