Some interesting facts about dietary fat.
If you’re like most Americans you’ve spent a lifetime training your body (and being trained) to use sugar as a primary source of fuel. The problem is not only does eating that way spike your insulin creating cravings for sweets, but it also keeps you from burning fat efficiently.
The secret is out! You have to eat fat to burn fat. In the fullness of time, the idea of a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet turned out to be a really bad idea. It all started in 1977 when the McGovern Report was issued showing a low-fat diet as preventative for heart disease. It further escalated in 1992 when the USDA Food Guide Pyramid was introduced showing “6-11 servings of bread, cereal, rice and pasta” as the basis of a healthy way of eating. An entire generation of Americans was indoctrinated to this nonsense and it shaped food policy for decades.
