There's a certain misconception around that fat equals fat on the body. The notion, upon closer examination, is illogical ,however; I was certainly under this spell for the longest time of my life. Eating fat does not equal fat. Growing up in the 80's everything was low fat and Jazzercise or aerobics with colorful leg warmers was the way to fitness godliness. As I have learned, both couldn't be further from the truth.
Further hang ups tend be with the types of fats. Everyone knows that we need more Omega 3's and less Omega 6's but at the same time we're told to use "healthy" fats and oils like vegetable oil which is loaded with polyunsaturated fatty acids and Omega 6. So, if you take away nothing else from this then understand that you need to dispose of all those corn, canola, peanut, soy, and grape seed oils. Yeah I thought grape seed was ok too for a while but it's no better than the others. Canola is used so heavily now it is disconcerting. Canola was originally designed as an industrial lubricant and even a lot of olive oils sneak in a portion of canola to round out the rest of the bottle and cut the cost. Canola is, as I understand, a product of Rapeseed and not exactly good for our systems. Another terrible "fat" is the alternative butters. Margarine is one molecule away from being plastic not to mention all the other so-called butters which are nothing more than chemical compounds made to taste like butter. Thanks, but I'll take my chances with something natural and something my body knows how to process. So, toss them out and don't look back. If you're serious about reversing your health, start here.
