Good Fat?


#1

So are saturated fats good for you or aren't they?
You can prove anything by picking the references that support your points and excluding the ones that don't.
But I still think this article makes you think:

See the 'Fat Roundtable' article at T-mag's main page or use the search here, just be sure to toggle it to T-mag. If I remember, Lowery and Berardi had a good discussion on this after being asked the same question.

I don't think so. If a food is bad for you, it tends to make you feel like shit if you eat more than a small amount. Animal fat from decent sources (None-factory farmed) doesn't make feel any different than eating vegetables, even if I'm craving a lot of it. And it's always a healthy craving, not a reality distorting addiction you get when you regularly consume processed food.

Cardio disease is very rare in my family anyway, so whatever. :slight_smile:
