Feasting on Fitness: The Fat Rant

“Feasting on Fitness has a really great post today about the benefits of eating fat – and the Frankenfood found in salad dressing bottles at the grocery store.

It’s a long read, but well worth it. And your reward at the end is a yummy-looking recipe for Nut Crunch. Go read “Fatphobia” at Feasting on Fitness.

Here’s a tasty tidbit to whet your appetite:

… the food industry replaces fat with carbohydrate (which breaks down into sugar) and derives most of its chemically processed additives from grains.  The sugar puts our blood sugar regulation on over-drive leading to a host of problems, especially since we don’t have any fat to mediate digestion and produce satiety.  We lose valuable vitamins because we don’t have the fat to absorb them.  That is a runaway train of metabolic sickness on its own.

But it gets better:

Meanwhile, gluten, lectin, and anti-nutrients from grains in the typical American diet destroy a person’s digestive tract.  The inflammation, permeability problems, and inefficient, broken digestion that results is further exacerbated by those chemically produced food additives that are, no surprise: allergens!  Asthmatics and celiacs are at greatest risk because they are hypersensitive, but when you look at the scientific evidence about what grains do to your body, aren’t we all celiacs by varying degrees?

Conclusion: The trade-off of fat for sugar, more carbohydrate, and more additives just isn’t worth it.

    Thank you for the blog reference! I appreciate it! Glad I could help share important nutritional information with more people. Whenever I see those fat-free dressings and suggestions for reducing the fat everywhere, I feel amongst a privileged minority that knows the truth: fat is good for you! Don't be scared of it! Choose the right ones and eat them proudly!

    Thank you for sharing this alien ideology! 🙂

    Best wishes,
