I don't do twitter or facebook (If you are a metabolic person and have friend-requested me and I've ignored it please don't take it personally, it's just not what I do with faceache) to any extent and almost never use them for metabolic subjects. By an accident of twittard I picked up this tweet by Chris Masterjohn (via raphi and Mike Eades). It made me laugh out loud and still has me giggling occasionally:
"No! Carbohydrate restriction is the stupidest approach to fatty liver ever devised. If it “works” in any case it is almost certainly by supplying more methionine and choline, not by lowering carbs. It is impossible to make more fat from carb than you get by eating fat"
I can't help but think "chylomicron", "thoracic duct" and "physiology".
Then I giggle some more.
I guess it ranks along side of "Masterjohn", "Martha" and "RQ 0.454".
Edit on 27th Feb: Published 2 days ago, very post hoc. This is what happens to surrogates for NAFLD when people apply the “stupidest approach to fatty liver ever devised”.
