After eating, the body converts the calories not need triglycerides and these are stored in fat cells to be used later as an energy source. Excess calories in the diet, especially when they come from carbohydrate foods, promotes a greater increase in blood triglycerides.
CHOLESTEROL VS. TRIGLYCERIDES
Both are fats that play important roles in the body. Triglycerides stored unused calories and provide energy to the body, and cholesterol participate in the production of hormones and bile acids synthesized necessary for digestion and absorption of fats.
