Why Are We Afraid of Fun-Lovin’ Fat?

What if I were to tell you that everything you think you know about fat—that ultimate, fearful villain lingering in foods—is wrong? Furthermore, it’s not your fault you don’t know. Fear of fat escalated in society, especially in the last forty years’ obesity epidemic. Low-fat crackers, low-fat cookies, and low-fat microwave meals exploded on shelves with the idea that if you don’t eat your fat, you won’t see the fat appear beneath your skin. Seems like common sense, doesn’t it?



The government-proclaimed dietary guidelines have spurned this belief, urging a lower consumption of fatty foods because of a foggy, false relationship between fat, heart disease, and obesity epidemics. The 1990’s forced our great culture to turn to low-fat bread’s refined grains; even today’s United States-accepted Food Guide Pyramid suggests six to eleven servings of grains per day. Subsequently, obesity rates have skyrocketed. We’ve consumed less and less amounts of fat and we’ve replaced that fat with processed carbohydrates. A step onto the scale reveals no good news for our carb adoption. 

The Low-Fat, High-Carb, “Diet Healthy” Proponents Demonize the Following Paleo-loving Foods:

1. Coconut oil.
Coconut oil is actually incredible for you and essential in any diet. It is revving with medium-chain fatty acids that work to fuel your dying, free-radical-effected cells and bring them back to life. Furthermore, many islanders in the South Pacific look to coconuts for their way of life. Sixty percent of their diet is rich with coconut influence. They have incredible health and pumping, vibrant, no-clog hearts.

The medium-chain fatty acids also rev your metabolism, forcing you to increase the energy you expend when you digest certain things. They have antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral effects that create health and wellness in your body.

Therefore, a low-fat diet without coconut oil is simply ineffective.  

2. Almonds, Walnuts, Pecans, Cashews, Sunflower Seeds, and Pumpkin Seeds.

According to a recent study, eating pecans, almonds, walnuts, and other nuts lowers your Bad cholesterol levels by sixteen percent. The nuts are comprised of omega-3 fatty acids, which actively reduce your body’s cancer-causing inflammation.
Furthermore, nuts contain flavonoids that work as antioxidants, fighting cardiovascular disease-causing inflammation. The flavonoids further work to alleviate cancer cell growth.

3. Animal Fats.

The benefits of animal fats from steak, beef, and other meat are unrivaled. With these fats in your system,you’ll maintain a better body composition, improve your insulin sensitivity, and boost your GOOD cholesterol, which is essential for greater brain functionality.
