After a review of studies, it appears that the effects of ASP on lipogenesis comes into play primarily in the presence of a cocommittant glucose load. It appears that it is hand in hand responsible for the enhanced synergistic increase in lipogenesis when carbs and fats are eaten together.
This would be in line with a positive "survival mechanism" present in human evolutionary history that would consider the carb/fat combination to be a nutritional bonanza and would result in the bodie's reaction of maximun utilization/storage of available nutrients. Since the carb/fat combination was rare during much of Man's evolution, this response no doubt had positive survival implications during much of Man's existence. Unfortunatly not so much in modern times when the C/F combination is so readily available. It appears to provide an potential explanation for the many negative effects of consuming a high carb/fat diet..
Anyone have any thoughts? Where am I going wrong?
