LCHF PART 12. We know that carbohydrates, and especially refined carbohydrates, stimulate most food insulin. As insulin controls weight gain, these foods make us gain weight. But we also know that protein intake should be moderate in LCHF. We also know that it is something ketogenic.
This raises the question: protein fattening? And some fatter more than others? Do dairy products gain more weight than red meat? Do red meats get fatter than fish?
As always with food and the body, the answer is quite complex. It all has to do with a group of little-known hormones called incretins.
