Your reasoning regarding AA DHA and EPA is wrong. The body makes these derivatives on an as needed basis. EPA and DHA (fish oil) create health issues especially when taken long term. Fish oil made from cold water fish oxidizes immediately upon entering the body. Fish oil allows too much sugar to enter the blood stream. I’ve taken fish oil and upon having just one sip of coke was ready to collapse. Thought is was the coke but it was the fish oil. Fish oil recommendations are way too high. A pharmacological overdose of 10 to 50 times what the body makes. Because of the high volatility of omega 3 oils it is never used for cooking. Omega 6 is almost always processed these days and it is used to cook food. Both of those will destroy any benefits of omega 6 and it is extensive. Omega 6 is about 11 times more plentiful in the body overall than omega 3. It is not the ratio as much as it is ruined. Quality is the main issue.
Carbohydrates if not burned is stored as fat. Fat will not turn to fat unless in the presence of carbohydrates. If you want to find out more go to . Brian is a MIT grad in systems engineering. He sees the body as a system and uses scientific methods and lots of research back up his conclusions.
Traditionally, the staple carbohydrate of Asian societies is rice, which breaks down almost exclusively into glucose…virtually no fructose. As Dr. Lustig has suggested and some research corroborates (and you have laid out on this blog), fructose has a very different metabolic pathway from glucose and tends to promote insulin resistance and obesity to a much larger degree. So, one could argue that one simple answer to the question is the low overall fructose consumption in traditional asian cultures compared to modern western cultures.
While every person is unique, and our carbohydrate storage capacity will vary, according to Dan Benardot, the author of Advanced Sports Nutrition, "Humans can store approximately 350 grams (1,400 kilocalories) in the form of muscle glycogen, an additional 90 grams (360 kilocalories) in the liver, and a small amount of circulating glucose in the blood (~5 grams, or about 20 kilocalories). The larger the muscle mass, the greater the potential glycogen storage but also the greater the potential need."Another common figure in the research indicates that maximal glycogen storage is approximately 15 grams per kilogram of body weight (15 grams per 2.2 pounds).
It will analyse the effectiveness of low-carbohydrate diet over short and longer period of time as well as its effects on metabolism, coronary heart disease risk factors, glucose tolerance and psychological aspects....
The Atkins diet, being a low carbohydrate diet, does not take into account factors other than weight loss and puts participating subjects at risk for long and short-term health problems.
I think that Lustig et al.’s emerging research–and the accompanying shift of public concern away from fat and toward sugar–will open a fresh window of opportunity for mainstream study of the full carbohydrate/insulin hypothesis. The researchers profiled in the 60 Minutes piece appear to be conducting rigorous, controlled research–real science. When and if that research convinces the overlords of epidemology that added sugar/refined carbohydrates are primarily responsible for CAD and the other infirmities for which fat was previously blamed, we might finally be able to broaden the conversation (and the science) to a consideration of the effects of all carbohydrates. That’s my hope, anyway.
