I'm just curious about whether there is any evidence to show that a low fat diet leads to vitamin D deficiency. Both my parents have recently been told to take supplements and I'm suspicious that their low fat diets is part of the cause.

I believe it is because carbs raise your insulin levels which promotes fat storage. Thus if you don't have much fat in your blood, it cannot be stored in fat cells.

You can only increase your protein to 35%, after that your body does not metabolize it effectively, you start seeing signs of rabbit starvation such as diarrhea. So after that you would have to increase your carbs, if you want to lower your fat.... (more)

It is a perfectly paleo approach to have very low consumption of both fat and animal products. Infact i'd argue that most of the studied paleo populations follow such a diet.
