If we can divorce ourselves from the prejudice about fat, the endocrinology is really quite simple. Your body controls fat building. The hormone insulin controls fat.
How much insulin do you secrete in response to a fat laden meal? Zero. Insulin is secreted in response to carbohydrate. Eat more carbohydrate and you will secrete more insulin and build fat all oter things being equal. Fat in the diet, in contrast, is neutral.
Scientists hae even recently identified the cellular machinery that turns carbohydrates into fat. Researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center found a protein in cells called ChREBP. It converts excess dietary carbohydrates into fat stores..
