You want to live longer, healthier and reduce cardiovascular risk? Then let’s get FAT! New studies published in The Lancet showed that a high carbohydrate intake is associated with an increase of mortality. Even more interesting is that total fat and types of fats were associated with lower mortality.
Fats help to make up the structure of cell membranes. Think of all your cells; eyes, skin brain, heart… Good fats: Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats help all organs. “What I experience with many of my patients is if they do not consume good fats, they will reach for more carbohydrates for energy. Good fats will keep your energy supply high as well as metabolic and health needs met”
