If you eat carbs, many (leangains) say the resulting rise in insulin shuts down fat burning and simultaneously creates a condition of increased fat storage efficiency. Others (Lyle McDonald) say its not so simple.
From experience I've found eating carbs and fat near each other causes fat gain.
But what about coconut oil? Does MCTs tendency to be burned rather than stored present a new situation?
That said, would it be better to have starch before a fatty meal, or after?
