    Are there any downsides of having your body turn your carbohydrates into saturated fat by consuming large amounts of carbohydrates and having your dietary fat intake a bit lower?

    It's good to have all macronutrients in your meal for optimal digestion but there is no danger in going pretty low fat.

    Number 1 is completely baseless. Maybe a deficiency of medium chain fatty acids is possible? Not proven afaik though.
