A high-fat diet impairs cardiac high-energy phosphate metabolism and cognitive function in healthy human subjects.
BACKGROUND: High-fat, low-carbohydrate diets are widely used for weight reduction, but they may also have detrimental effects via increased circulating free fatty acid concentrations. OBJECTIVE: We tested whether raising plasma free fatty acids by using a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet results in alterations in heart and brain in healthy subjects.
