The mainstream has been promoting this “medical fact” since the 1950s. That’s when a certain study linked one type of food to heart disease. The researcher probably meant well. After all, the U.S. was facing a major increase in heart disease rates at the time. And nobody could figure out why.
But that researcher, Dr. Ancel Keys, excluded critical data from 16 different countries just to pad his own theory. Well, it worked.
The American Heart Association (AHA) declared his hypothesis medical fact. In the process, they cast a black cloud over this macronutrient for more than half a century.
Many people—including doctors—still believe it. They tell you to avoid this food at all costs to protect your heart. But if you are, you’re making a dangerous mistake.
That’s because eating more of it has the opposite effect of what you’ve been led to believe. It can reduce your risk for a major cardiac event—by as much as 30 percent.
Even so, the idea of it being “good for you” isn’t accepted by the mainstream medical community because if they actually told the truth for once….they would lose billions in profits from cholesterol, blood pressure and heart medications. But that’s all starting to change….thank goodness for that……people are starting to wake up and realize that our grandparents never had the diseases we are being plagued with today, especially not in the amount of sick people today….so common sense tells us to start going back to the eating habits of our grand parents
Adding more of this notorious nutrient to your diet doesn’t cause heart disease—it helps prevent it.
Saturated fat has been a dietary outcast for over 60 years. Even worse, another study suggested that it should be replaced with carbohydrates. Talk about bad advice. Now carbohydrates are not all bad…..but MAN-MADE REFINED CARBOHYDRATES ARE ALL BAD AND DANGEROUS....plus GMO corn and wheat should be avoided as far as possible!!!
Eating GMO grains and refined carbohydrates, sugars causes the inflammation that leads to heart disease. Excessive intake of these kinds of fake foods make you age faster than you should, make you gain weight and body fat, make you sick too, especially in the growth of cancer in your body. Eating them can leave you feeling depressed and lack of energy can also be experienced.
Unlike these refined carbohydrates, saturated fats lower inflammation.
Take ghee, for example. It’s mostly saturated fat. Men who eat two tablespoons of ghee a day lower their risk of heart disease by over 20 percent. It also raises HDL cholesterol—the good kind—while lowering your LDL. And ghee isn’t your only option.
Coconut oil is another saturated fat that can protect your heart…..and my personal favourite. Multiple studies show that diets rich in coconut oil do not raise cholesterol or contribute to heart disease. Coconut oil is also antiseptic. It actually helps kill the viruses and bacteria that can cause the formation of atherosclerotic plaque. So not only does it keep cholesterol in check—it also prevents bacteria from plugging up your veins and stealing blood from your heart.
Saturated fats aren’t your enemy….refined carbohydrates and sugar are!!! They don’t cause heart disease, but for them to help you prevent heart disease, they have to come from natural sources. Don’t be fooled into eating dangerous trans fats. A juicy, grass-fed steak burger is loaded with protein and healthful fats. If your burger is coming from a drive-thru window, it won’t help protect your heart.
I always tell my clients that they should do the exact opposite of what mainstream media, dieticians and the medical world preach about nutrition….it is usually what you SHOULD be eating!!!!
