Fat Does Not Make Us Fat
But, it also doesn’t increase cholesterol and give us heart disease, either.
I have been saying this for YEARS!
And… I could wax lyrical forever about why fat is not only not bad for us, but that it is actually vitally important for our health…
However, I don’t need to… because there are some great resources already out there that I can share with you here…
We Need Lots Of Healthy Fat
Fat is a vital building block of the body. We need it to make vitally important things like hormones, and we need it for brain health. Contrary to popular belief, we actually even need it for heart health….
There is so much bad science and negative propaganda surrounding fat, with everyone seemingly vilifying this important component of our diet, it may take a little time to get beyond our conditioning and get to the truth.
It may be especially difficult to shift the idea that fat will make us fat… but it doesn’t!
I promise you that the information in this article is true. FAT IS GOOD FOR US, and the received wisdom around fat, doing the rounds in the mainstream, if we were to follow it would be REALLY BAD FOR US.
Mark Hyman :: Separating Fat From Fiction
I love Mark Hyman. He’s a brilliant Physician of Functional Medicine, of course, but he’s also a great human being.
He cares! And that really matters.
In this short video he covers a lot of ground… covering good fats and bad fats, and the fats that make us healthy and thin!
Good Sources Of Fat
In this short video Dr. Weil explains which fat sources are the most conducive to optimum health.
Using interesting anecdotes, in a very down to earth presentation, this short video will help blast away some of the disastrous conditioning we have been subjected to for decades.
He touches upon the importance of Essential Fatty Acids, especially Omega 3, and explains why the emphasis on this nutrient has been so necessary in recent years… i.e. government subsidies for the production of food sources of Omega 6, which have introduced dreadful nutrient imbalances in our diets that are making us sick…
Fat Explained In More detail
In this very short video Dr. Josh Axe explains some of the science around good fats, and some of the best sources available to us… from both animal and non-animal sources.
He also explains why low sugar, high fat diets facilitate weight loss… Wow!
He even touches upon why saturated fat helps balance our hormones and supports our Thyroid function.
Josh Rogan Interviews Nina Teicholz
This is a brilliant interview that covers high fat diets versus carb based diets, which we are told are good for us.
This is, of course, NOT TRUE!
It also covers all of the doctored science to support the status quo, which keep the food industry very profitable, and make Big Pharma gazillions of pounds worth of profits, because low fat diets make us SICK!
Cereal based diets are really cheap to produce, but healthy fats cost more… Go figure…!
This is a long and fascinating interview that totally does the length and breadth of this subject complete justice. It even covers all of the history, with some really interesting anecdotal evidence.
John Bergman & Weight Loss
Here’s the real cherry on top. The very wonderful John Bergman tells us how we can lose that impossible to shift weight.
And, he tells you how to lose weight and get MORE HEALTHY!
