    I know that a degree of vitamins and minerals are fat soluble, but does anyone have conclusive data on whether eating virtually 0 fat is worst than a moderate diet in mostly animal fats?

    Basically: Are people who are restricting their fat intake too much compromising their health more than the average sausages and chips eater?

    Yeah maybe.

    The question still stands though. Overall which is preferable: a diet including substantial amounts of fats the media constantly drum us not to eat, or zero fat?

    We can't make all 'fats'. So zero fat wouldn't be advisable.

    No, evo-devo.


    Does it matter?


    Also certain vitamins can only be transported with fat. A diet without fat will certainly not contain those vitamins.

    Nope, it doesnt matter seeing as you are only divulging that which is readily divulged anyway.

    I thought in extreme circumstances fat can be made from sugars in our body.
    But I think those are mostly satured, and if it's unsaturated, the body can only make a double bond on the 9th C-atom starting from the first methylgroup. So unsaturated omega3 and omega6 fatty acids will still be needed in the diet.
