    What would be the effects of too little fat

    What symptoms might there be if someone is not getting enough fat in their diet?


    added--

    I haven't really been noticing any symptoms. But i know my diet is lacking in fat and today i had problems with my gf....if u get my drift.

    If i increase my fat levels, how long will it take for test/hormone levels to regulate?

    Your metabolism can actually slow down, resulting in unintentional weight gain from the other calories you're consuming. As well as consumption of muscle. After all, when your body needs energy, it has to get it from somewhere and if it isn't consuming fatty acids and lipids, it's going to get it from somewhere else.

    Fats help with: Cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, testosterone, anti-inflammatory s, vascular health, vitamin absorption, etc

    Edit:
    Symptoms: throw hormones off ( Ie: decreased sex drive)

    For people with good insulin sensitivity low fat intakes while dieting are ok short-term while they keep eating high protein and high carb low calorie (and thus low fat) diet. But long term low fat intake is a bad idea for everyone. Fat balances hormones. Without sufficient for your body fat intake your libido will sink to eunuch levels for one thing...

    Spontaneous third lung, and phantom hand syndrome.

    srs: For me, the first thing I notice is irritability. Which is probably a result of hormonal imbalance. I've noticed a more balanced mental state after getting the correct amount of good fats in my diet.

    I noticed that majority of really muscular low bodyfat guys are very angry, loud, and got a short fuse (probably in more ways than one, but I don't want to know)
    Can it be that it's because they have good insulin sensitivity and eat a low fat/high carb diet?

    That's a good question. I have no idea. But I would bet that you're right. Low bodyfat guys probably have so little "slack" in their fat levels that their body can't regulate things the way it's designed to, you know?

    For said hormonal imbalances, how long does it take for the body to adjust back to normal once fat levels have been increased to sufficient amounts (i.e. ~0.5 g/lb)?

    To make it worse his "advice" to other smaller less genetically gifted for bodybuilding guys in the gym that I constantly overhear includes:

    "You gotta eat every 2 hours. Cheese, chicken, everything."

    "I don't eat potatoes, they make you fat"

    "Morning I eat only protein. Then lunch is lots of fruit. This is the best way"

    "I don't take protein powder, it makes you fat"

    "If you wonna be big you gotta work-out 3 hours every day. Look at you, you're here 45 minutes 3x per week walking around, I'm here 2-3 hours every day"

    He also brings a bag with him to the gym floor that has his NO explode tub and dextrose/creatine mixture in it. He drinks it during working out...

    Very lean guys --> most probably on a strict cutting diet

    Strict cutting diet --> low calories --> irritable, angry, mood swings

    Gallstones because the juices in the gall bladder aren't being used up so they end up being crystalized.

    More than likely you'll experience some hormonal issues. Fat plays a huge role in that area.

    Try to get the majority of your fat from monos and polys
    Nuts, PB, avocado, olive oil, flax, etc

    1. Hair falling out or thinninh

    2. Skin really dry or easily cold

    3. Food that tastes like ****

    4. Some vitamins are only absorbed in the presence of fat

    Plus the fact that every one of your cells is surrounded by a layer of fat and you don't want that to just "disappear".

    Why? Are you planning on not changing you diet if it won't take that long?

    But to answer your question, you can't know. Depends on too many factors (how long deficient, your stage in development, natural T-levels, etc)
