Does eating high fat but low carb foods make you lose weight but higher cholesterol levels or is ingested fats also stored as fat in our bodies?

Does eating high fat but low carb foods make you lose weight but higher cholesterol levels or is ingested fats also stored as fat in our bodies?

Fat has calories: Fatty foods are packed with calories, twice the number of carbs or proteins for the same amount of food. So high fat is not going to help you lose weight just because you are avoiding starches and sugars (carbs). Your total calorie intake needs to go down and/or your exercise up to lose weight. Start reading labels with portion size and calorie content as well as the breakdown carb/protein/fats. ...Read more

Does wheat increase the amount of fat that is stored in abdominal cavity? I was curious if a primarily carb diet from wheat leads to more weight gain.

Yes if large amounts: A diet high in sugars and starches is probably the greatest contributor to obesity. The book wheat belly makes the case that wheat is a major factor.

How can you activate brown adipose tissue to increase thermogenesis and increase fat metabolism?

What's the difference of overeating sugary/fatty foods and overeating healthy foods with same amoutn of calories?

What's the difference of overeating sugary/fatty foods and overeating healthy foods with same amoutn of calories?

Metabolism: Not all calories are created equal. The body metabolizes high sugar foods, including alcohol, very quickly into fat if these calories are not needed to sustain physical exercise. Most of us do not burn the amount of calories we eat. Unless we are in control of our eating. Do replace your junk food with healthy foods with the same # of calories. See for yourself. I bet you will lose some lbs. ...Read more

The public therefore comes to believe that this stuff is "bad for you" and people are ready to believe that is causes other problems as well. In fact, acne & most other skill trouble is mostly unrelated to diet, and balding is hereditary. ...Read more
