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.

If I was to lower my fat should I up carbs or protein?

Up your carbs. Fats are largely energy, as are carbs, protein is lousy for energy.

A Ver low carb, very low fat diet isn't a good idea.. You would be better off with a moderate to low carb, moderate protein, higher fat diet.
