Apparently LPL is not the only - or the most important - enzyme associated with fat storage. Acylation Stimulating Protein (ASP) appears - in rats at least (and how applicable this is to humans I'm not sure) - to be even more critical for fat storage than LPL. It is worth doing a pubmed search on ASP (e.g. here)
I'm still thinking through what all this means for my own fatty diet.
Anyway, that is tangential to what I wanted to post.
This popped up in three sources today:
NSAID Improves Insulin Secretion in Obesity
Aspirin-like compounds increase insulin secretion in otherwise healthy obese people
Aspirin-like compounds (salicylates) can claim another health benefit: increasing the amount of insulin produced by otherwise healthy obese people.
Aspirin-like compounds (salicylates) can claim another health benefit: increasing the amount of insulin produced by otherwise healthy obese people. Obesity is associated with insulin resistance, the first step toward type 2 diabetes.
I'm not sure that this is always a health benefit, but that is by the way. The point is that salicylates stimulate insulin production.
Now many natural foods contain salicylates and these food chemicals may be an issue for many people as Emma has been explaining and explaining for a long time!
Irrespective of ASP, it may not be just the carbs stimulating the insulin and making you store fat. It may be certain chemicals in the low carb foods that you are eating.....
UPDATE - Emma has now posted on this.....and she is much cleverer than I am! UPDATE 2 - Peter is cleverer than me too.
