How do EFA’s affect weight loss?

n-3 can turn off the “fat-making” gene, and turn on the “fat-burning” gene, but carbohydrate intake needs to be reduced drastically. Carbohydrates are converted into glucose in the body, which is the “immediate” fuel our cells use to create energy. If more fuel is supplied than is needed for energy at that time, the balance of the fuel will be transformed into a “storage” form of fuel, which means it becomes fat.
