Im really fascinating by this subject.
Lets say I eat 40 grams of fat. What happens next?
The argument is that without insulin, the fat in my blood wont be stored in the fat cells. Ok, fair enough, but it cant just magically disappear? If its just metabolized for energy, it is used instead of adipose-fat, right? So it wouldnt really matter if I ate carbs or fat? It just seems to me that in the end it all comes down to an energy balance…the only way this cant be valid is if fat taken in without carbs is somehow not used for energy, and therefore is not part of the “energy in”
