Why saturated fat is good for you…

Boy o boy have I been duped big time!

Remember the food pyramid everyone grew up with, you know the 6-8 servings of carbohydrates per day… well, have you ever wondered what if they got it all wrong? What if they had it the wrong way around upside down? What if the reason people are fat is not because of eating too much but rather people are eating too much because they are fat… does it all sound too counter intuitive? well I’m here to tell you that’s because it is. Better yet, watch this lecture series on youtube and let Tom Naughton tell you why –

after that watch this next presentation by Robert H. Lustig on the detrimental effects of consuming too much sugar –

You will never be able to view sugar and fat the same way…and that’s for the better.

The presentations should be required viewing for anyone who are having thoughts about taking on a diet or have in the past but could never keep the weight off.
