I think that the body can only synthesize saturated fat from carbs and protein.

If this is the case and you get very little fat from the foods that you eat,
then it seems like most of the fats in your body would be saturated fat resulting
in chloresterol issues. I remember reading that to reduce triglycerides (circulating
fat) carbs should be reduced. Does this make sense?

I wonder why the body creates saturated fat if it is supposed to be the bad kind?
