You have any evidence that saturated fat ****s up your cholesterol other than "everyone knows it does" ?
Btw im eating the same like you do, lots of saturated fat and my cholesterol is around 175 last time I checked it.
What's your triglycerides around 50 or lower?
So ur stating that an extra few hundred calories in surplus from let's say carbs will make u gain a higher percentage of fat then u would see from downing a half a bottle of coconut olive oil? Disagree.. The carbs would energize and give a further ability to exercise with more intensity/longer duration. While what would a **** load of coconut olive oil do? Possibly a bit of energy as well but not my main choice for fuel. No "scientific" data here just personal exp. u have 20k posts so chances are u right about everything regarding everything..
^Quick serious question regarding protein. Is extra protein that is not able to be absorbed and used just expelled or can ur body store it as fat? I believed it can't but have a brother who disagrees.
avoid sat and trans fat. too much will make you fat, just like too much food would regardless.
of course carbs are worse for fat gain.
Sat fat are to be avoided. you should drink olive oil for EFA's . i add 1-2 shots to my protein drinks AND add it to all my food. (avoid cooking with it, use grapeseed for that)
when you buy high fat foods, look for low sat fat.

Yep it will, because the carbs will raise insulin making it easier for you body to store fat, while the same excess calories from fats won't barely raise insulin at all. As well, carbs are digested very fast resulting in more of a short term surplus of calories, where fats are digested slowly, making the surplus per hour smaller, so again less likely to be stored as fat.Originally Posted by wrathchild281

There are more than 30 different types of saturated fatty acids all which obviously have varying chemical structures; so broad terming them is like comparing fructose to glucose.
HEres a wiki article; dont discard it because its wiki, it highlights the new current research about fats. Saturated fat and cardiovascular disease controversy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
And i also quote In 2009; a systematic review supported by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada of prospective cohort studies or randomized trials concluded that there was "insufficient evidence of association" between intake of saturated fatty acids and coronary heart disease, and pointed to strong evidence for protective factors such as vegetables and a Mediterranean diet and harmful factors such as trans fats and foods with a high glycemic index.
With that being said...a cell such as the mytocandria can be fuel by glucose or fatty acids to make ATP. In other words one can survive on either carbohydrate or fats as energy source independent of each other. In other words you can eat fat by itself and survive just fine or plain carbohydrate.
Fats contain 9 calories per gram, which makes it very calorie dense which will give you more than a bit of energy in fact it gives you a shiet load of energy.
I'm on 5 spoonfuls of coconut oil a day.
I feel invincible.
