We've got at least one doc on this board. He probably can address this better. But fat does slow absorption. Found this online: The nutrient that has the greatest effect on blood glucose levels is carbohydrate. "Fat and protein don't affect so much glucose levels. In fact, fat slows glucose absorption." See "7 things you need to know about carbs..." on About.com http://diabetes.about.com/od/mealplanning/

Regarding the phrase itself, I'll look in my references and post again if I find it. Sounds like a variation of: that'll put hair on your chest.
