Fat? You’ve Been Lied To

 

 Fat is where it’s at and you’ve been lied to.

 
If you are afraid to eat fat then you, like many Americans, have been sucked into the widely held, erroneous idea that all fat is bad and eating low-fat is good.
 
 
 .
We are fat heads.
.
Our brain (60% fat) needs certain kinds of fats to work well.
.
Healthy fat is brain candy.  Your brain will reward you and you’ll have better moods if you get this right.
.
 
 
Nora Gedgaudas, author, Primal Body, Primal Mind explains that the brain uses at least 20 – 30% of our body’s energy supply.
.
 
“Many people assume that the brain needs glucose for this energy, but few are aware that the brain actually prefers ketones, the energy units of fat, for its dominant source of fuel!” – Nora Gedgaudas

Did You Know?

  • A high fat (ketogenic) diet has been used since the 1920s to effectively treat epilepsy 
  • A high fat diet has been used to effectively treat PCOS. Listen to my podcast with Dr. Fox, fertility specialist. We talk about PCOS and the diet that he recommends. 

 

  • Butter and cheese from grass-fed cows have  a nutrient (K2) that promotes brain health, protects us from heart disease, and reduces the risk of prostate cancer 35% (Kresser).
 
 
“I believe that K2 is a ‘missing link’ that explains many of our modern ills. Here are a few more tidbits to whet your appetite: K2 may affect glucose control and insulin release.” Stephan Guyenet, PhD Neurobiology

Emily Deans, MD wrote,
“Please remember, fat+sugar = kiss your pancreas good-bye.
 And unfortunately, ladies and gentleman, all those fast “food” joints serve up their industrial meat with special sauces loaded with sugar on sugary buns with sugar sprinkles, more or less, so the KFC Double Down is still not a good idea. However, there is no consistent medical literature to back the AHA Recommended Diet limiting fat consumption to 30% of calories daily.”
 
 
 

Delicious Options for Healthy Fat

Eat traditional fats, not odd low-fat junk made in a factory.  
Traditional fats have been consumed for thousands of years – when we experienced health and normal weight.
.
Butter, Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil and more!

.Eat real food

Eat real food, as close to the way it was created as possible.

Meat, fish, chicken, eggs, vegetables, nuts, seeds, fruit, natural fats from butter, olive oil, coconut oil, macadamia nut oil, avocado oil and red palm oil.

Find a farmer raising animals the right way – chickens running around outside and cattle on pasture, not eating genetically modified corn and soybeans or candy, stale pizza dough and potato chips!

Eat well to be well.
