Did You Know…
Saturated fats are very important for optimal health?
I am sure your doctor and nearly all health authorities have told you that saturated fats will raise your LDL cholesterol and clog your arteries and potentially giving you a heart attack.
Like in 2015 the USDA dietary guidelines advising you to limit saturated fats to a maximum of 10% of your daily calories and basically reiterating the above health risks.
Fats are an important element to your biology and a large number of recent studies show that saturated fats do not increase you risk of heart disease.
So where is all these conflicting studies coming from?
Well interestingly a new study came out showing that the accepted wisdom on saturated fats being bad was completely wrong.
In fact, a 4 decade old study that showed saturated fats were not bad was buried and hidden from you.
Most importantly these dietary saturated fats are very important if you are trying to lose weight, but don’t just start eating more fats without changing other parts of your diet.
You have to train your body to switch from burning carbs to burning fats.
Once this happens you will began to burn body fat.
But you must first restrict your carb intake, protein and only consume high quality fat sources.
So what are high quality fat sources?
These natural fat sources are organic unprocessed fat found in raw grass fed dairy, meat, butter, eggs, seeds, nuts, olives, avocado, coconut oil and raw cacao.
These fats do increase your LDL cholesterol levels.
But there are two types of LDL.
One is bad and does cause problems and the other is large fluffy particles that are not known to increase your risk of heart disease and may be good for you.
These quality fats increase the large fluffy particles.
Plus, these fats also increase your HDL levels which compensate for any increases in your LDL.
So this is one of the areas that the misinformation came from.
The study conducted from 1968 to 1973, included 9,423 participants between the ages of 20 and 97, making it the largest trial of its kind.
All of the participants were residents of state’s mental hospitals and a nursing home in which all meals were prepared for them, making it one of the most rigorously detailed studies.
Diet 1 was a standard diet at the time containing 18.5 percent saturated fat from animal fats such as milk, cheese, beef and shortening, and 5 percent unsaturated fat, based on total calories
Diet 2 was a diet in which 50 percent of the saturated fats were replaced with vegetable oil (a mainstay in today’s processed foods) and corn oil margarine (total 9 percent saturated fat and 13 percent unsaturated fat)
The researcher Ramsden and his team found that vegetable oils lowered total cholesterol levels by an average of 14 percent after one year.
However, this lower cholesterol did NOT result in improved health and longevity, which has been and still is the conventional belief.
What the research did show is that the lower the cholesterol, the higher the risk of dying.
Yes, for every 30 point drop in total cholesterol, the chance of death increased 22%!
This is where more misinformation came from by not publishing the research.
The vegetable oil group did not have fewer cases of atherosclerosis or heart attacks.
Instead the autopsies showed both groups had similar levels of plaque in the arteries but 41% in the vegetable oil group showed signs of at least 1 heart attack.
But the saturated fat group only had 22% showing at least 1 sign of heart attack.
Yet more information that was hidden from you.
I know this information goes against everything you have ever heard about saturated healthy fats, but mounting studies keep debunking the old adage that saturated fats are bad.
More studies are showing how healthy and important they are for you.
