Main Question or Discussion Point
I'm trying to understand what a person said (from ahttp://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=162168&p=4 [Broken]. 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).The problem with junk food is the high sugar, fat and sodium content. The sugar releases insulin, the fat is absorbed and you get fat simple as that.
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.
