Carbs raise triglycerides more than fats

Triglycerides are three fat particles stuck together with a glyceride backbone, so it's reasonable to assume that they would go up when you eat fat, and the medical community has been making that assumption in their diet advice for quite some time. Well, it ain't so.

elevated triglycerides
The main reason why triglycerides levels increases is due to poor diet and excessive intake of sugar and alcohol, and foods that are rich in carbohydrates. Triglycerides, along with cholesterol, are the lipids or fatty acids deposited in the body. These are developed from the excess calories that are consumed and not able to burn during physical activity.
