These data demonstrate that certain characteristics (e.g., BMI) can make some individuals more sensitive with respect to lipid and lipoprotein changes when dietary CHO is increased.
Such characteristics that have been identified from previous work in this field and include BMI, insulin sensitivity (Coulston et al. 1989), concentration of TAG before the dietary change is made (Parks et al. 2001), hormone replacement therapy (Kasim-Karakas et al. 2000), and genetic factors (Dreon et al. 2000)."
