Not trying to stir any trouble, but I have an honest question about LC eating.
Many on Paleo or LC sites seem to think that carbs are the devil as the carbs are eventually just are stored as fat in the body. However, it seems like these people are forgetting that dietary fat is also stored as fat much more easily than carbs. Therefore, replacing carbs with fat really solves no fat storage problem. I understand that reducing carbs burns more fat, but if you are just replacing the burned fat with more dietary fat (which is stored as fat), are you really losing that much overall fat? (Sorry for confusing wording)
As a personal anecdote, I was already in low body fat range but could not lose last pounds on low carb. Then I reduced my dietary fat intake, added more starchy carbs, while still eating tons of protein, and voila -- I began losing. I am not saying I don't eat fat -- I just reduced it a ton and replaced it with protein. That was the trick for me. Just sharing my experience in case others are having same problem
Any ideas about this?
