So I’m taking a Human Nutrition class at college now… with an overweight vegetarian professor… being told that Atkins is associated with renal kidney failure and that daily fat intake shouldn’t go over 25%. Whatever.
One thing I’ve been wondering is that a common theme of pretty much all the food pyramid variations endorse low fat or fat free dairy products only, and a lot of public schools are following suit. Jon Bowden makes the point in the 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth that Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin and that the emphasis on fat free milks may lead to deficiencies.
Q: How much fat is needed to absorb fat soluble vitamins?
