Fats 101

Everything you need to know about FAT🥑

This is my third installment in my Youtube series about macronutrients.

Growing up, fat was the most villainized macronutrient – everything was either non-fat or zero fat. But today, it might be the most over-glorified macronutrient.

To put this into perspective, I like to remind everyone that nature favors mediocrity. Think about a pack of gazelles, stay with me… the overzealous leaders in the front get the river first where the crocodiles are waiting. The last ones in the pack get picked off by the lions and hyenas.

The same is true for saturated fat.

You want to have enough saturated fat in your diet for your hormones but, at the same time, too much of it can increase your cholesterol.

The reality is: EVERYTHING in moderation.
