Insulin increases the activity of lipoprotein lipase thay allows cells to take in lipids from chylomicrons in the blood.

If a person takes a sugar only meal like drinking coke, insulin is released. Will this insulin activate the lipoprotein lipase despite the lack of chylomicron synthesis due to lack of fat in the diet?

Could activation of the enzyme without adequate substrate be of any harm?
