Do excess carbs/sugars get converted into saturated fat in our bodies? And if so, then would a high fat/low carb diet be healthier than a high carb/low fat diet?
Yes and No: Yes, you are right in that excess of carbs/sugars get converted into fat. So do eat carbs, but in moderation. Eating fat doe snot do any good, so i would say no to your second question. What you need to do is choose a balanced diet which has ample amounts of plant based foods which are free of both fats and avoid too much sugar. In addition, get a good amount of proteins by eating fish, nuts & egg. ...Read more

I am on a low carb diet, using mct oil. Which supplement is healthier to include to speed up my weight loss? Cla or calcium pyruvate? Or others?
Pyruvate healthier: Research on the weight loss benefits of both is limited, but some studies suggest potential hazards of cla so i'd choose pyruvate- see http://www.Med.Nyu.Edu/content?Chunkiid=21676 ; http://www.Med.Nyu.Edu/content?Chunkiid=21633 the key to weight loss is not supplements but long term diet changes (like http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht).
