The Skinny on Fat

Posted by Laura Paulisich on


1. Eating healthy fat creates happiness! The satiation, increased energy, brain care and resolution of health problems create better mental health including a positive and optimistic view of life.

2. By feeding my body what it needs (nutrients and fat), hunger and cravings are eliminated. If I ever find myself hungry I always investigate my diet to ensure proper nutrients and fat consumption.

3. Healthy, traditional fats include pork lard, beef/lamb/bison fat, butter, ghee, meat fats, egg yolks, traditionally-made olive oil, coconut oil and cod-liver oil.

4. Costa Rica, famous for many centenarians, reports families of 7-8 people butchering one pig a month and rendering 5 gallons of fat (that is almost 1 gallon of fat per person per month).

5. Masai tribes drink at least a gallon of milk per day (3/4 of a pound of butterfat a day) and consume 4-10 pounds of meat at a festival.

6. 60% of the brain is fat. Eating healthy fat feeds the brain.

7. Eating healthy fat feeds our cells for proper cell functioning.

8. Coconut oil increases metabolism!

9. Obesity is a sign that that person’s cells are more sensitive to insulin (carbohydrates) than other people’s cells.

10. “If you have a weight problem it is not your fault!” - Gary Taubes (Get rid of the carbs! Don’t eat the foods that make you fat! The leanest you can be is on the diet with the fewest carbohydrates.)
