“Fat” non responders…
This question goes out to anyone with either written data or observations. (2 part question)
Do you believe that some people will never respond well to a high fat/high protein, very low carb diet? I have spoken with a few athletes who have claimed this, and claim they respond better to a high protein, mod fat (from all "healthy sources) and moderate to low carbs?
Any other observations to support this?
If you have seen the above, have any thoughts on what causes it? Some have claimed that these individuals are very leptin sensitive. I have no evidence to support this leptin claim, just showing one of the arguments I have heard.
Again, none of the people were suggesting a low fat diet, just that they responded better for fat loss to a mod to low carb intake, with fats coming mainly from fish oils, flax oils, etc.
