Default Re: Research Question of the Week: How to Optimize Fat Efficiency in the Diet

Would eating medium chain TGs actually inhibit to a certain degree your body's ability to burn fat it has stored? Or would it speed this up a bit?
I'm thinking, if your diet contains these fats that are more quickly oxidized, will your body use these up first (not taking into account carb oxidation), then call on fat stores for energy?

I would be interested to see an article that talks about the mechanism fat stores in the body are broken down for energy. At what point do they get tapped into?

I'll try to find an article discussing this, but if someone knows of one, I'd appreciate a heads up.
