    not enough fat

    Say one wasn't getting enough fat in their diet- what would happen? Just wondering.

    Your test levels would drop.

    You know what gear is right? test (well most of it)

    You've got to be getting in your fats or your muscle will turn to jelly.

    Wow. Mind to take a look at this thread i made and tell me if you think my diet is lacking in fat? because i have a few of those symptoms and never really realized why till someone said i was low in fat.

    P.S- Recently added a little fish oil to my diet (4 capsules, 10 cals each before bed) and have noticed i'm feeling a little better.

    This, plus the fact that many of your vitamins will not be absorbed into the bloodstream without fat. All in all, not good.

    Diets too low in fat
    1. Puts you into the starvation zone
    Low calories and skipping meals aren?t the only things that send you into
    survival mode. When dietary fat intake is reduced to less than 10% of total daily
    calories, this also sets off the starvation alarm.
    2. Causes large fluctuations in blood sugar
    Fat slows down the release of carbohydrates into the bloodstream. When large
    amounts of simple and refined carbohydrates are eaten alone, they shoot rapidly into the
    bloodstream, creating a large spike in blood sugar.
    3. Causes greater insulin release
    When your blood sugar spikes, your pancreas releases a lot of insulin to bring
    blood sugar back down to normal. Moderate amounts of insulin are necessary (and
    anabolic). Large amounts or insulin are lipogenic (cause fat storage) and anti-lipolyic
    (prevent fat release).
    4. Causes hormonally related hunger and cravings
    You can have more willpower than a celibate monk in the Playboy mansion, but if
    you get hormonally induced hunger, you won?t to be able to fight it. Whenever there?s an
    unusually large blood sugar spike, it?s a law of nature that there must be an equal or
    greater valley. This blood sugar valley, known as hypoglycemia, is the cause of those
    intense, almost irresistible cravings that send you frantically to the nearest Baskin
    Robbins or Krispy Kreme store.
    5. Reduces testosterone
    Low dietary fat levels are correlated with low testosterone levels. For someone
    trying to become leaner and more muscular, this spells disaster.
    6. Can be deficient in essential fatty acids

    Focus on Getting EFAs
    There are at least eleven important function of EFA?s in your diet:
    - EFA?s improve insulin sensitivity
    - EFA?s are required for absorption of fat soluble vitamins
    - EFA?s are essential for joint health
    - EFA?s are required for energy production
    - EFA?s are required for Oxygen transfer
    - EFA?s maintain cell membrane integrity
    - EFA?s suppress cortisol production
    - EFA?s improve skin texture (dry skin is a classic symptom of EFA deficiency)
    - EFA?s are growth promoting
    - EFA?s increase metabolic rate
    - EFA?s help burn fat
    Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats tend to lower levels of blood pressure, cholesterol, inflammation in arteries, reduce risk of heart disease

    many vitamins and minerals need fat to be absorbed into the body... hence fat soluble

    lack of fat in the diet is why so many people are vitamin deficient these days, particularly vitamin d and vitamin e.. also calcium etc. A few decades ago when everyone drank whole milk this wasnt a problem, but now everyone avoids red meat, drinks skim milk, eats the egg whites only and is fat deficient, and as a result is vitamin deficient.
