Should You Ate Fat To Lose Weight?
Report On Saturated Fat vs. Unsaturated Fats.
Are You Living In 1977?
In 1977 the Dietary Goals for Americans (1977) report proposed increases in carbohydrate intake and decreases in fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and salt consumption was never proven to be true. The DGAC Report does not provide sufficient evidence to conclude that increases in whole grain and fiber and decreases in dietary saturated fat, salt, and animal protein will lead to positive health outcomes of supporting evidence limits the value of the proposed recommendations as guidance for consumers or as the basis for public health policy. It is time to reexamine how US dietary guidelines are created and ask whether the current process is still appropriate for your needs. Current research is negating the DGAC Report.
They Were Wrong!
- Modern research has shown that the 1977 report was not backed by science we are still being told to avoid saturated fat to reduce heart disease risk.
- Atkins was one of the first to show that fats help you lose weight and that low fat, high carbohydrate diets increase weight.
If the low fat diet were true we would not have the current worldwide obesity epidemic.
What Is Cholesterol?
- Lipoproteins are proteins that carry cholesterol around.
- These Lipoproteins are called HDL and LDL, the “good” and “bad” that carry cholesterols.
- Their is only one type of “cholesterol” that is carried by the lipoproteins.
- Now we know that there are two types of LDL –
- 1-Small dense LDL: these are small lipoproteins that can penetrate the arterial wall easily, which drives heart disease.
- 2- Large LDL: these lipoproteins are large and fluffy and don’e easily penetrate the arteries.
So to reduce your risk of heart disease, you want to have mostly large LDL particles and as little of the small ones as possible.
What About FAT?
- Eating saturated fat changes the LDL particles from small, dense to Large.
- Low-carb diets, which tend to be high in saturated fat, can lower LDL-p, while low-fat diets can have an adverse effect and raise
Saturated fats raise HDL (the “good”) cholesterol and change LDL from small, dense (bad) to Large LDL, which is mostly benign. Overall, saturated fats do not harm the blood lipid profile like previously believed
- Current research is showing that there really is no link between saturated fat consumption and heart disease.
- The biggest and best studies on saturated fat and heart disease show that there is no direct link. It was a myth all along.
Unfortunately, the governments and “mainstream” health organizations seem reluctant to change their minds and continue to promote the old low-fat dogma.
The link between saturated fat and heart disease has been studied intensely for decades, but the biggest and best studies show that there is no statistically significant association.
The results of most studies are based on averages.
The studies clearly show that, on average, saturated fat does not raise the risk of heart disease.
Individuals with a genetic disorder called Familial Hypercholesterolemia, as well as people who have a gene variant called ApoE4
With time, the science of genetics will most surely discover more ways in which diet affects our individual risk for disease.
FATS To Avoid!!!
- Trans Fats– are artificial fats that are very bad for us. Studies show that trans fats lead to insulin resistance, inflammation, belly fat accumulation and drastically raise the risk of heart disease.
Avoid Omega 6 found in Soybean and Corn oils, as well as the processed foods that contain them.
Unproven FAT Myth
- Human have been eating saturated fat for thousands of years, but the heart disease epidemic started only recently due to processed foods.
- The take away should be to eat natural foods and avoid all processed foods.
- Eat vegetables, fish, nuts, olive oil and foods with natural finger like oatmeal and flaxseed.
- Help Yourself!
- Healthy people can effectively reduce risk of coronary disease by walking 22 minutes a day, minimising stress and eating “real food.
- Research is recommending low dose aspirin to reduce risk of heart attacks and strokes while increasing your chances of surviving them.
- Now it is being reported that aspirin can reduce some forms of cancer. Speak with your Doctor before starting any diet or aspirin regiment.
- Experts Recommend Being Active For 30 Minutes Everyday
- The good news is that 30 minutes can be made up of shorter activities of 10 to 15 minutes, making walking an ideal way to hit the target.
