I'm trying to understand what a person said (from aforum. Later on, he goes to say that without insulin, eating excess fat would not cause you to get fat (near the bottom of the page). I'm confused... i'm sure insulin regulated the blood-sugar level by causing select cells to increase their uptake of glucose, and to absorb fatty acids. But say if a person ate lard - and nothing but, would this person still store the fat? Or does consumption of fat induce the production of insulin, which then causes cells to store it? thanks! Everything i've searched only shows insulins effect on glucose.
