But, won’t fat make me fat?

Where to start? Fat is an “f word” that has been wrongly demonized for way too long.  Ever since the rise of low fat and low calorie foods, obesity, Diabetes and heart disease have become a scary epidemic.  We’ve removed fat from our diets, but have become fatter and sicker.  It’s time to wake up and smell the bacon1

 

Will fat make you fat?  Heck to the NO!  UNLESS fat is paired with high levels of carbs.  Consuming a burger and fries on the daily is a surefine way to pack on unhealthy pounds.

 

There are certain fats that could certainly make you fat, and/or block your ability to burn fat.  Omega 6 oils like corn oil, vegetable oil, soybean oil, safflower oil, and sunflower oil – most of which are found in mayonnaise (even the ‘natural’ kind) – and trans fats are some of the bad fats.  A ketogenic way of eating is focused on consuming HEALTHY fats, such as avocado, coconut oil, grass-fed butter, high-quality meats, dairy, seeds, and nuts.
