Everyone should know this by now, that the type of fat you consume has a huge impact on health and fitness.
In the Paleo community, we actually know how to read and interpret the studies. We know how to avoid junk science. We know that Saturated, monounsaturated, and omega-3 fats are the ones to eat.
Here is something interesting I came across. First, take a look at the graph below. It represents obesity in the US since the USDA guidelines came into existence:
Now compare it to this graph, showing sources fat intake over time:
Really makes you wonder who we should, or should not be listening to when it comes to our health and well-being. Wasn’t it the government that told us to switch to veggie oils and man made processed crap? Wasn’t it them who told us saturated fat was going to make us fat and give us heart attacks? Ah! It was! Fuck you, USDA, for making us fat and ugly, and dead!
Dietary guidelines are dirven by politics and money, not science. Get your head straight and eat like an animal, because you are one! It really is that simple!
I eat an average of 80-110 grams of fat per day, most of it saturated. I am the healthiest person I know.
Side Note: This is really REALLY fucked up. Pizza is not, and never should be, considered a vegetable! Just more proof that the government health guidelines really are driven by politics.
