Preferential uptake of dietary Fatty acids in adipose tissue and muscle in the postprandial period.

"In this study, the most striking findings were the postprandial uptake of fatty acids from the circulating NEFA pool by adipose tissue, the direct confirmation that chylomicrons are the preferred substrate of LPL over VLDL, the preferential channeling of fatty acids derived from LPL-mediated chylomicron hydrolysis into adipose tissue, and the postprandial release of fatty acids across the forearm."

So it looks like it is bad news to combine meals that are both high in fat and carbs. The result will be lots of vLDL particules swimming around in your blood.
