Why Your Diet Should Include More Fat

As the decades-long erroneous vilification of healthy fats fades away, more studies are showing the value of adding good fats to your diet. As reported by CNN Health, Harvard has released a study of 126,000 people showing you can cut your risk of dying by more than a fourth by simply replacing bad fats with good.

I’ve never supported the low-fat diet myth, but if you’ve been taken in by it, now is the time to shake it for good, as major health organizations agree that encouraging people to eat low-fat diets is having a disastrous impact on public health.

For example, key findings in the British National Obesity Forum’s report on obesity show that high-fat diets are superior for weight loss; calorie counting doesn’t work; exercise alone cannot combat obesity; saturated fat does not cause heart disease and meal frequency influences weight.

The saturated fat myth is one of the worst diet lies ever told, as we now know that replacing saturated fats with vegetable oils has actually increased mortality risk from all causes, including coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease — for every 30 point drop in total cholesterol, there was a 22 percent increased chance of death.

If you want to lose weight and live healthy, eat good fats such as olives and olive oil, raw nuts such as macademia and pecans, grass-fed meats, raw coconut and coconut oil, avocados and organic, pastured eggs and dairy. You also need to limit net carbs. Utilizing an intermittent fasting program can help with this. And ditch trans fats and highly refined polyunsaturated vegetable oils.
