Weight gain? The kind of fat in your diet


helps determine how much muscle mass
you build up

If you gain weight, the kind of fat in your diet partly determines the amount
of fat and the amount of muscle in your newfound kilograms. The

unsaturated fatty acids in sunflower oil stimulate the growth of muscle;


the
saturated fatty acids in palm oil found in many processed foods lead to
an increase the amount of fat. Researchers at the University of Uppsala in
Sweden report on this in Diabetes.
Study

If you fatten lab animals, the type of fat you use makes
a difference. If you use vegetable oil, which contains lots of unsaturated fatty
acids, the animals build up relatively more muscle than if you use products that
contain large amounts of saturated fatty acids. The Swedish researchers
were
curious to know whether these results would also apply to humans, so they
performed an experiment with 39 healthy subjects aged between 20
and 38.

The researchers gave their subjects 3 muffins every day for 7 weeks on top of
their ordinary food. The muffins provided a total of 750 kcal of which half were
derived from fat.

Half of the subjects were given muffins prepared with sunflower oil, a source of
the polyunsaturated fatty acid linoleic acid. The other half were given muffins
made with palm oil, a source of the saturated fatty acid palmitic acid.

The subjects did no sports and took no supplements either.


Results

At the end of the 7 weeks, the subjects in both groups had gained just over 1.5
kg in weight. But those who had been given the unsaturated fatty acid [PUFA]
had gained three times more muscle mass than the subjects in the other group
[SFA].

longevity

The type of fatty acid also had an effect on where the


fat layers were deposited. The subjects who had eaten
the palm-oil muffins accumulated relatively more fat in the abdominal area than
those who had eaten sunflower-oil muffins. Abdominal or visceral fat is less
healthy than subcutaneous fat, and increases the chance of a number of
diseases including type-2 diabetes and some forms of cancer.

Conclusion

"Despite comparable weight gain after 49 days, this double-blind trial showed
that overeating energy from polyunsaturated
fatty acids prevented deposition of l
visceral and total fat compared with saturated fatty acids", the researchers write.

"Further, the inhibitory effect of polyunsaturated fatty acids on ectopic fat was
accompanied by an augmented increase in lean tissue and less total body fat
deposition compared with saturated fatty acids. Thus, the type of fat in the diet
seems to be a novel and important determinant of liver fat accumulation, fat
distribution, and body composition during moderate weight gain."
