About Good Fats

Good Fats?

Alarmed by the word good fats? You’re not alone. For years, I had it backwards. Meaning? I thought all fats were bad and I had to reduce fats in my diet, becauseyou know—clogged arteries and weight gain would be the result if I ate fatty foods.

"5 Fat-Busting
Myths EXPOSED"

Are you FED UP with the
old DIET INDUSTRY?
You too CAN lose weight!


Back then, I drastically reduced my caloric intake. I lost a few pounds… and even though I never went to look for it… it piled right back on! (Joke—Groan).

The problem was: I was always hungry!
 
During my work day at Beesville Books, I came across a brilliant book by Gary Zeidman quite by accident. His book is called Deconstructing Diabetes. Funny how fate works. Until reading Gary’s book, I was under the assumption that fat makes you fat. Period. End.

But The Exact OPPOSITE Is True!

I found out that the exact opposite is true. We need to eat more fat—MUCH more fat, in fact. I know that’s hard to grasp.

But we do need the essential fatty acids (fat) and essential amino acids (protein). 
 
And to quote another great Keto book author, Amy Ramos, of The Complete Ketogenic Diet for Beginners:


"There’s no such thing as essential carbohydrates."

"There’s no such thing
as essential carbohydrates."

This led me to finding out which fats are good for us, and what are the “not-so-good” for us fats...

The GOOD FATS Identified

It’s time to stop giving butter a bad rap. It’s time to eat butter and enjoy it… along with coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, and ghee.
 
(Fats to avoid: vegetable oil and soybean oil). The oils I have on hand are MCT Coconut oil, Avocado Oil, and yes, some regular vegetable oil I use a dash of in this super-easy, super-tasty egg dish: "fried" egg on toast with cheese. Now then, before you have a hissy fit with the mention of "toast," I only eat ThinSlim Foods breads (see ad at the bottom of this page) and Carb Balance tortillas by La Banderita. I only added the tortillas when I'd pretty much reached goal weight—I did not want to slow down the "goal weight" arrival! It worked.

Right, back to Gary and "good fats":
 
Gary says this about fat in his Deconstructing Diabetes book:


"Dietary Fat does not cause body fat.
It does not cause weight gain.
The consumption of fat does not cause
the arteries of your heart to get clogged.
It does not cause the increased cholesterol.
It is not the cause of fat accumulation in your liver.
It does not cause diabetes."

Gary Zeidman

"Dietary Fat does not cause body fat.
It does not cause weight gain.
The consumption of fat does not cause
the arteries of your heart to get clogged.
It does not cause the increased cholesterol.
It is not the cause of fat accumulation
in your liver.  It does not cause diabetes."

Gary Zeidman


It Then Begs The Question...

What causes the aforementioned concerns? Drum roll, please...

 Carbohydrates!

 Carbohydrates!

The carbohydrates you consume are turned into sugar (glucose) which we use for fuel.

The excess (un-burned) fuel/sugar then turns into fat in your liver, pancreas, and that creates disease AND weight increase from ingesting too many carbohydrates!

Second Opinions

I was thoroughly annoyed and disgusted by the fact that I'd been on the wrong side of fat (in more ways than one!) for the past three decades. Instead of being a cheerleader of digesting fat, I was its biggest critic. After all these years of avoiding fat, this "fat is OK" discovery really rubbed me the wrong way. There IS such a thing as good fats.

I was then VERY thankful to have read Gary’s book. Some serious binge book-buying followed via Amazon for second, third and tenth opinions. They were all in agreement. Keto diets work.
