Cholesterol and Big Fat Lies
Fear of Fat & Cholesterol worth billions
What I’ve learned living the low-carb life (and now almost 50 lbs down) – is that the “fear” people have when it comes to fatty foods.
Like we’ve all been programmed (regular citizens all the way up to “knowledgeable” physicians) to believe that the saturated fats, and delicious, rich foods like bacon, eggs and juicy steaks are our problem – and that we should have dry, disgusting, tasteless “fat-free” food to live a healthy, thin life.
Well – the problem really lies in a high-carb, high blood sugar diet – and much of the “research” that led to these dramatic conclusions was flawed (or was due to confirmation bias – they wanted to “prove” something so badly, that they ignored the data that didn’t support their claims).
I mean eating saturated fats in accordance with a low-carb diet actually helps you lose weight faster!
