Fat is Good for You

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Most people think of fat a a dirty word. It’s something we carry around with us that makes us look, well “fat”. But fat is an important fuel and it is a building block for many of our cell membranes and hormones. The reality is that fat is more than just fuel or raw materials. Our brains are mostly fat. Most our our nerves are fat. Reproductive hormones are fat. Yes, there are different types of fat. And there are eve essential fats. Fats that if you do not get enough of, or the right ratios, you will become sick or die.
Fats come in three “sizes”: saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated.
To learn more turn to the book “The Paleo Solution” and it will give you all the knowledge you need to turn from the FALSE diets of low fat-hi carbs. Unfortunately, just like today, the people in congress are not scientists, they are after all politicians who are worried about their job – not your health.
Even recent articles in the AARP magazine and newsletter have conflicting notes. One says: low fat hi carbs; another hi fat low carbs. So if you just take some doctor’s word and don’t do the research yourself you could be led down the path of destruction.
