All Fats are Good Fats: Dispelling the Bad Fat Myth

All Fats are Good Fats: Dispelling the Bad Fat Myth

Butter is just best and a prime example of how the medical research that we have been fed over the past thirty years has been anti health.

Fat has gotten a bad rep in the past thirty years in the USA.

Everything from lions to killer whales and pretty much all highly developed mammal life favors fat over all other forms of food. How could the most prized food in all of nature be considered “unhealthy” by the majority of Americans? The answer lies in the psychology of the word and the history of the US governments role in the food industry.

Does Fat make you Fat?

No. Fat does not make you Fat. Bodybuilders and all professional athletes know this. They make doubly certain to get all their required fats each and every day. The more you train the more fat you need. Fat goes to building nearly all kinds of tissue from brain tissue to cell walls to muscles and lining organs. When you eat fat, the body will use the majority of it to help maintain the body and about thirty percent of it will get discharged in your feces. This leaves little fat at all to go to your belly fat. Furthermore if your body doesn’t get enough fat it will go into fat accumulation mode and begin making fat from carbohydrates. Not getting enough fat will make you fat!

The History and Politics against Fat

Remember the whole “Law Fat Craze”  that swept the USA in the eighties? This was the the USDA’s way to make us healthier, yet it had the adverse effect. The “Low Fat” movement is what lead to the current epidemic we now face of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

The logic is simple. Remove the fat from processed food and it tastes horrible, not to mention it’s even more processed as a result. In a home environment you can remove fat from food and then make up the taste difference with herbs spices and other household elements, not to mention it will be fresh. Processed food makers took a different option.

The Fat Sugar Bait and Switch

They added massive quantities of sugar to “fat free” food to compensate for the taste.  They also choose the sweetest and cheapest from of sugar they could find, High Fructose Corn Syrup. We now know that fructose gets converted instantly into pure belly fat. This highly processed unnatural sugar is in nearly everything we buy now, from bread to soda to ketchup to jam. A sure tip off is the label “fat free”. Whenever you see “fat free” on any food, avoid it like the plague, while they might have stripped the food of any natural fat it once had they instead replaced it with highly fattening processed sugar.

Which Fats are Best

Everyday we hear terms like saturated fat and trans fat and fatty acids and omega this and omega that. Are we supposed to get a degree in bio chemistry to know what to eat? They say something new every week about what is bad and what is good. You don’t need to follow all their techical jibberish to know what is healthy. It is very simple.


Yes! a brick of pure lard is healthy. much healthier than a big jug of processed canola cooking oil. The rule is this “If man made it (processed it) then DO NOT eat it!” We get most of our fat today not from healthy natural sources like animal fat from fish, buffalo or dairy such as butter but instead from the highly processed oils we cook with and all restaurants cook with.

The only Bad fat is Processed Fat!

These highly processed unnatural fats are pure poison and the body doesn’t know what to do with them. All the processing they go through puts many trace elements of toxins into them as well. The body will use fat to coat toxic molecules to protect the body. Thus this toxic processed fat gets sent straight to your belly fat! Haven’t you every wondered why people carry so much belly fat these days? Fifty years ago a fat person was fat all over, now most of it is in the belly. Thank all the unnatural sugars they put into our food and all the processed toxic fat they cook our food with for this.

Good Fats

  • Anything natural.
  • Butter ( raw is best )
  • animal fat from fish or beef and buffallo etc..
  • Fats from nuts and seeds
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Coconut Oil ( best oil for cooking )

Bad Fats

  • Anything processed
Ray says:

beacon fat is good natural fat, good for you and NOT fattening.. now that sugar in the bread, soda, and pretty much everything else we eat… that is fattening.

also the highly processed pseudo cooking oils are ultra fattening and down right poison because they are not natural fat.

I would suggest the natural fat of salmon over beacon.

David says:

Excuse my ignorance on this subject, but what about bacon fat?


Was a fat kid and major geek.. still am a geek, but now I have learned the truth about health and it is pretty much the exact opposite of what your doctor will tell you it is. Time to go old school and level up our health by focusing on gaining not losing. Gaining strength, knowledge and confidence. The weight loss will come easily.
