Fat vs. Carbohydrate metabolism

Yes. A restricted carbohydrate diet has been proven to raise good cholesterol and lower bad.

Also: high cholesterol is not an indicator of pending disease. The particle size of the cholesterol is more important. A low-carbohydrate diet is better for fully cholesterol.

Carbs: 4 calories per gram
Protein: 4 calories per gram
Fat: 9 calories per gram

Lowering carbs and upping the fat doesn’t reduce the calories one is eating. Perhaps it results in less appetite, resulting in fewer calories. But that’s different than asserting that one eats fewer (not LESS! GRR!) calories because one no longer eats carbs.

Saturated fat is not harmful. Google.

It’s amazing how many doctors don’t keep up with the research.

That should be “fluffy”, not “fully”
