Over recent years, fat from food has gotten a bad rap. When mentioned, most people react like fat is a bad thing. And it can be. But it’s also one of the critical macronutrients of the three that the body needs to perform at optimal levels. These are protein, carbohydrates, and fat.
The issue that comes into play with fat from food is the type of fat and amount.
It seems that just about every week we hear about a new low fat diet food that will help us lose weight. Whether that’s a juicing diet, Atkins diet, Vegan diet, South Beach diet or just purely starving ourselves!
In the last few of years, studies have been conducted to show that not only are low fat diets reasonably ineffective in spearheading weight loss, some of them are quite detrimental to health and may actually cause you to increase in weight in the long run.
