Let’s start to talk about FAT and why dietary saturated fat is good for you!
1. Fat gives your more energy.
Dietary fat contains more energy per gram than any other nutrient, so it’s the most effective way to deliver energy to the parts of your body that need it, like your brain.
2. Fat stablises your insulin.
Compared with protein or carbohydrates, fat has the lowest impact on insulin levels. Insulin spikes are what lead to energy crashes and weight gain. (I have to drill this into your head over and over again!)
3. Fat helps control your glucose level.
Fat actually slows the absorption of carbohydrates, keeping blood glucose levels under control.
When blood sugar is high, so is cortisol, your body’s main stress hormone. Circulating cortisol will keep blood sugar high and can contribute to inflammation and hurt your immune system.
4. Fat makes your feel fuller longer.
You will actually eat less if you trade empty processed grains and sugar for quality fats.
5. Fat is nutrient-dense.
Quality fats often contain fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A, D, E, and K. Eating fat alongside other nutrient-dense foods will increase the fat-soluble nutrients you absorb from them, too. That’s why it’s a good idea to eat fat at every meal, and especially with your vegetables.
6. Fat is a building block.
Fat is a building block. Quality fats form strong cell walls and help build sex hormones. Your brain is the most fat and cholesterol-dense part of your body and it requires saturated fat to build myelin, the insulators that connect many of your brain cells to one another.
Wow, I didn’t know any of this…
Yes I know… neither did I…
If this is all true, why most of the health professionals are still convinced fat is bad for our health?
There are many factors but most of them are associated with strong financial interests that want us to keep eating low-fat, high-carb products. Because you sure are going to start to read the food labels on your healthy-heart muesli box. You should! As a matter of fact, you will start obsessing over what’s actually sold and bought from your local supermarket.
The second reason that ultimately and tragically, many health professionals are unwilling to admit that the advice is just plain wrong.
