Subject: RE: BS: Keto diet - anybody try it? Like it?
Helen, your post interested me so I decided to look further into the question of sugar leading to fat in the blood. I found a page from the University of California at San Francisco, and the page is quoting the Royal Society of New Zealand.

Here's the only info connecting sugar to blood:

"Fructose is also taken up into the blood from the gut, but in this case, the liver serves as a pre-processing organ that can convert fructose to glucose or fat. The liver can release the glucose and fat into the blood or store it as glycogen or fat deposits..."

Makes me glad we have cut our sugar consumption way down at our house.
