DESCRIPTION: Being obese may result in as much insulin resistance as eating a high fat diet.
What does “gum up the insulin receptor pathway” mean? See the prequel video: What Causes Insulin Resistance? http://nutritionfacts.org/video/What-Causes-Insulin-Resistance And the sequel, Lipotoxicity: How Saturated Fat Raises Blood Sugar (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/lipotoxicity-how-saturated-fat-raises-blood-sugar), goes into the types of fat and their effects.
The fat leaking into our bloodstream may also contain fat-soluble pollutants that accumulated from our diet: Pollutants in Salmon and Our Own Fat (http://www.nutritionfacts.org/video/pollutants-in-salmon-and-our-own-fat).
The spillover effect may also help explain the increased heart disease risk associated with obesity: Low Carb Diets and Coronary Blood Flow (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/low-carb-diets-and-coronary-blood-flow/).
