Don’t Cut Your Fat, Eat More Of It (And Less Carbs)!

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ September 21, 2007

It’s time yet again for another thrilled-packed episode of the hottest thing to hit YouTube…okay, maybe not. But my wife Christine and I would like to think we’re having enough fun talking about low-carb living to justify making more and more “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb On YouTube” videos–and so we are.

In Episode 5 we got into the most controversial part of low-carb diets in the eyes of those so-called health and nutrition experts who think it is so dangerous and unhealthy. That’s right, we talk about FAT–dum, dum, dummmmmmmmmm! And even SATURATED FAT! Double dum, dum dummmmmmmm!

But you know how I feel about fat and that it alone has nothing at all to do with making you fat or clogging your arteries. Instead it is the SUGAR and the carbohydrates you consume that TURN TO SUGAR in your body that is “gumming up” your arteries as my friend and Protein Power co-author Dr. Mike Eades would say.

If you’re interested in more about this subject, check out these blog posts:

“Butter Anyone? Defending Fat With Facts”
“Narrowly Focused Saturated Fat Study Contradicts Previous Research”
“Eating Fat Improves Mental Health, Study Finds”
“Eat More Fat And Less Carbs For Heart Health, Study Recommends”

There’s MUCH MUCH more where that came from, but it’ll get you started off the right way in understanding why fat is indeed a part of a happy and healthy lifestyle. Read Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution and the upcoming Gary Taubes book Good Calories, Bad Calories for even more evidence in support for fat consumption.

Okay, enough of that, it’s time to show you our latest video. ENJOY!

I LOVE my coconut oil (my favorite brand is Nutiva) and butter–both of which are recommended by Dr. Jonny Bowden as one of the 150 Healthiest Foods On Earth (EXCELLENT BOOK, by the way!). Hopefully people will understand that fat is not the big health threat that our fat-phobic society thinks it is. It’s just not as long as you keep your carbohydrates reduced.

Leave a comment for Episode 5 and talk about how fat is an important part of your low-carb lifestyle experience. These videos on YouTube are being watched by people who have never been exposed to the positive message of livin’ la vida low-carb before, so help me educate them on why this way of eating is so healthy for them.
