SEE WHY EATING LOW FAT CAN MAKE YOU FAT!
Probably one of the biggest health care hoaxes perpetrated during the last decade or so is the notion that “fat is bad”. If you want to enjoy your highest health potential, you need to know the truth about this common (and incorrect) belief about fat.
FAT IS NOT YOUR ENEMY.
In fact, fat is essential if you want your body to look and feel younger and equip your nervous system to function at it’s best. Why? Because healthy fats supply good cholesterol, which is critical for the production of hormones that enhance youthful qualities. (The notion that cholesterol is bad is another fallacy that we’ll tackle in the future.)
If you’ve chosen to adopt a low-fat diet, you’re depriving your body of the nutrients it needs to slow aging and to function optimally.
Granted, low-fat alternatives abound on grocery store shelves. But this is just the latest marketing hype for the low-information shopper. To get away with low-fat (low-taste) products, manufacturers rely on amping up the sugar (and its many surrogates) to deliver the taste people want. The result? WEIGHT GAIN!
Bottom line? Fat doesn’t automatically make you fat. At least, “good” fat doesn’t.
