The Truth About Fats


"Choosing the right types of dietary fats to consume is one of the most important factors in reducing the risk of developing heart disease" Said Alice Lichtenstein, DSC, a renowned researcher from Tufts University of Boston

The bodies primary fuel source is carbs/ glucose not fats so fats should not be the largest ratio proportion per meal. The keto diet is 70 to 80% fats not even strictly dietary fats from what I see, while our bodies should have between 15 and 30% dietary fats for general consumption according to International Sports Sciences Associate pg 243

If you think fats are just fats well think again. Fats are classified by their structure as saturated, monosaturated, or polyunsaturated.

Note: check the back of your food labels for trans-fat A dangerous form of fat is trans-fat (trans fatty acids), primarily contained in a solid or semi-solid margarines and commercial cooking oils used in processed foods. Liquid oils go through a process called hydrogenation that involves adding hydrogen atoms to the fat. This makes the oil solid and helps preserve the product. The trans-fat made through this process increases cholesterol levels and has been linked to heart disease and some forms of cancer.

The good fats are any nuts, any seed, olive oil, flax oil, Black seed oil, fish oil, salmon, avocado, and I'm sure there's more.

Healthy fats helps your immune system and metabolism , it's 33% of the brain metabolism source (yes the brain metabolism is 66% glucose and 33% dietary fats), essential in keeping your lungs and eyes working properly. So keep in mind what you put inside your temple today. Put the best in and bring the best out.
