Determinants of fat oxidation

We confirmed that a substantial interindividual variability existed in the MFO, which ranged almost 6-fold (0.19– 1.13 g/min; 3.5–20.7 mg $ kg FFM21 $ min21). Non–diet- related variables included in the analyses explained 44.4% and 16.6% of the variability in the absolute MFO expressed as g/min and the relative MFO expressed as mg $ kg FFM21 $ min21, respectively. These amounts were greater than those that were previously reported with the use of similar variables (36% and 13%, respectively) (9).

Over the last 15 years, however, there has been resurgence in the use of KD in refractory childhood epilepsy, with over 700 peer reviewed publications in the last 15 years.

Even cardiologists recognize the lack of evidence in present guidelines

“Why did we go wrong? We went wrong because of surrogate endpoints.”
The demonization of fats— saturated fats in particular— stemmed from earlier observations linking saturated fat consumption to LDL levels. Yusuf reported that PURE confirmed this finding, but he also noted that the overall difference in LDL was small and that there was a large amount of variance. More importantly, randomized studies that have looked at fat reduction to reduce cardiovascular events have not shown benefit, except in cases where fat levels were extremely high, he said.
Yusuf said that the ApoB/ApoA ratio is a much more highly sensitive marker of risk. Data from PURE shows that this ratio goes up with carbohydrate consumption but is neutral with saturated fats or polyunsaturated fats and declines with monounsaturated fats.
