Old habits die hard right?

I still find it shocking that despite the current and steady stream of consistent scientific evidence you are still scared to make fat a major part of your diet.

But on the other hand, I get it.

I mean, after all, fat has been vilified for so many years, by so many people that you respect (your teachers and your doctors) that it's hard to go against the low fat mantra.

I remember being in public school and our Phys Ed teacher brought in this disgusting yellow lumpy jelly and said: "This is hardened body fat. You will get this in your arteries and on the sides of your body from eating too much fat."

Talk about leaving a mark...that was almost 30 years ago and I still remember that event. So it's no wonder that most of us are completely fat phobic.

But, science (good science, and a lot of it) is proving time and time again that fat is NOT an enemy of health. On the contrary, fat is looking more like your health's best friend.

I'm not advocating eating as much fat as you want; especially the unhealthy kinds. But, I am saying that there is much more harm done to your body from avoiding fat, then there ever could be from including good fats in your diet.

I don't mean this to be a jerk, but the reality is your body requires fat. If you don't get it, there will consequences...potentially major ones. On today's podcast, we cover the 7 Signs You Need To Add More Fat To Your Diet

Here Is What We Covered

  • The science behind why you need to eat fat.
  • The seven signs (not diseases) that you are not eating enough fat.
