Yes – You read this right!
A diet higher in saturated fats like red meat, eggs and butter while decreasing whole grain carbohydrates not only produces greater weight loss.
It improves your overall health by decreasing your risk for diabetes while improving heart health.
Now, if you are like me. You may be thinking……
“Ya Right! What is this a joke. Everyone knows saturated fats are the dietary equivalent of satan himself.”
Heart healthy saturated fats, not complex carbohydrates
To fully appreciate this statement – You have to realize I graduated college as a nutrition science major in the mid-1990’s at the height of “heart healthy complex carbohydrates”
And having worked within the medically supervised weight loss community for the past two decades. I am reminded daily just how ingrained the low fat, high complex carbohydrate diet is within modern health care.
So, you can appreciate my initial skepticism when I came across the “Dietary Fats Produce Healthy Weight Loss” in medical research nearly a decade ago.
