Do you still really think saturated fats cause obesity and heart disease? That is wrong and outdated. For the past 50 years we were forced to believe that we have to lower saturated fats or bad cholesterol (LDL) to prevent obesity and heart disease. Guess what? The number of people with heart disease, alzheimer’s and obesity have increased since.
It is time to change your current view of what is considered “healthy lifestyle”.
What causes disease in most people is the consumption of fake fats, processed sugars and carbs and not saturated fats.
Did you know that your brain is comprised of mostly saturated fats? Cholesterol is needed not only to improve your brain but also to help our body to manufacture Vit D from the sun.
It shocks me when I hear health professionals still recommending low cholesterol diet and supplements.
Wake up people! We need cholesterol such as coconut, avocado, dark chocolate, goat cheese, nuts, butter and sardines to live longer.
