Hey guys – how is your low carb November going so far 🙂 I’m feeling pretty good and on track!
I know when I first started on LCHF, the hardest thing for me was to get my head around to the idea that saturated fat is actually good for us! And that we should not only incorporate fat into our diet, but embrace it. Six month down the line, and I have fully embraced this idea and now it just seems natural to me.
However, for those of you who were skeptical like I was – ABC Television in Australia has done a fantastic documentary called Heart of the Matter which deals precisely on this topic: saturated fat and cholesterol. I had seen this documentary being spoken about on various LCHF blogs from down under, but I have just watched it for myself – and I am feeling even more impassioned on this topic!
It is two episodes of about 30 minutes each – please, please please take the time to at least watch the first episode (Heart of the Matter, Dietary Villains), which deals with saturated fat and cholesterol and how in fact it is sugar that is the enemy! The other episode delves more into cholesterol and drugs – which is also incredibly interesting!
Sometimes I wish I could shout out this information from the roof tops so everyone can hear – I want everyone to understand how important this information is.
Here are some more information currently being published on wordpress on this matter – which makes for interesting reading!
