My Truths #2 (fats)

by Stephanie

Fat does not make you fat. Fat is a critical component of a low carb lifestyle. Fat makes food taste good and makes you feel full longer. BUT all fat is not created equal. Avoid industrial oils such as vegetable, corn, canola, sunflower seed, peanut and other highly refined oils. Instead opt for healthy oils such as olive and coconut. Even butter and bacon grease are healthier options for cooking than those nasty industrial oils.
