Default High carb low fat = high fat production

My colleague was presenting her research to me. And one thing she found was that high carb (60%) low fat and protein (15% each) diets resulted in the highest fatty acid synthase expression in the liver. Obviously this enzyme works to synthesize fats. This includes being higher than if you upped your fats to 30%.

Basically, indicates to me that if you completely cut out fat from your diet, your body just responds by producing it by itself to fulfill requirements. I don't know about you, but I'd rather just get my requirements from my diet!

Really cool! Unpublished data, but thought I would share, hear some thoughts.

Matthew 7:20
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
