Effect of short-term low- and high-fat diets on low-density lipoprotein particle size in normolipidemic subjects

The high-fat diet was also associated with a significant increase in LDL particle size (255.0 vs 255.9 Å; P = .01) and a significant decrease in the proportion of small LDL particle (<255.0 Å) (50.7% vs 44.6%, P = .01). As compared with a low-fat diet, the cholesterol-raising effect of a high-fat diet is associated with the formation of large LDL particles after only 3 days of feeding.

(larger particles are much healthier for you, and come about after only days on a low carb diet)
