Dr Johnson MD, University of Colorado, builds on the above videos. His lab believes they've discovered a "fat switch" that trips your body into putting on weight. The paleo trigger is fructose. It signals our ancestral bodies to put on fat in preparation for the lean winter months. Now people are eating fructose year round. Sources: sugar, HFCS, honey, and fructans from grains like wheat (the doughboy syndrome). Brewer's yeast (in beer) also sets this fat storage in motion. Which is why lite beer hasn't prevented the beer belly in regular beer drinkers. And as it turns out, if your glucose/glycogen is replete your liver can/will convert some that ingested glucose into fructose.

Fructose is metabolized into triglycerides in the liver so....

MedTV: What Is VLDL Cholesterol?
Page 2: "VLDL cholesterol is produced in the liver in response to a high-carbohydrate meal. The liver converts the extra carbohydrates into fat (triglycerides) and puts them into VLDLs to be transported to fat cells and muscle within the body. The liver also puts some cholesterol into the VLDL. A VLDL particle is rather large, carrying a lot of triglycerides relative to the amount of cholesterol."
"Once a VLDL particle delivers its triglycerides to fat cells or muscle, it is called an intermediate density lipoprotein (IDL). This IDL can return to the liver with its cholesterol so that the liver can repackage it to use it later or simply get rid of it. But in most cases, the IDLs remain in the blood and go through another transformation where they lose most of their remaining triglycerides. At this point, the IDLs are almost all cholesterol and are now known as LDLs. About three-quarters of total cholesterol in the blood is contained within LDL particles."
Your body actually uses HDL to process the VLDL which is why blood tests are showing high LDL and low HDL
Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?
