Is SATURATED FAT BAD? Is a KETOGENIC DIET DANGEROUS? The TRUTH about SATURATED FAT instagram: @primaledgehealth My take on the saturated fat "debate"...There is a wealth of information available about saturated fat and the demonization of fat as a macronutrient, but the times they are-a-changin. This is my summary of the subject... It's very important we don't make the same mistake as the "anti fat" movement and allow history to repeat itself, carbs are NOT the problem - carbs are not the sole reason for obesity, heart disease, etc - just like saturated fat was not the culprit. Certain types of processed fats, just like certain types of processed carbs, are highly inflammatory...obesity is caused by calorie excess and this CAN be exacerbated in a vicious cycle due to hormonal atmospheres created by excess processed carbohydrates and insulin that will result in overeating, metabolic derangement, insulin resistance, and more fat storage. Carbs are not to blame for all the ills of the world, just like saturated fat was not the culprit 40 years ago.

Classic Cartoons: Hmm, well the coconut oil is saturated fat and is not an animal product. Is coconut oil the same as fat from animals or is it a really bad source of saturated fat?

jorge Matzunaga: your on point dude ! i agree and have that same perspective ..

chriss hurtsell: You can would like to examine this keto diet strategy!

Xavier audit: big yes yes!

Schoening91: Sickening that people profit on disease like that...

Thefit: put a shirt on bro

John Taylor: Im constantly scanning the meats in the butcher shop
looking for the ones with the most fat on them.
Corned beef is a regular purchase for me.

Nathan Schwermann: paleo style notes?? Bro you need to get a chisel and some rock.

Klaod Nell: I had a friend that told me that Pork Crackling was unhealthy to eat more than once a week and has no nutritional value other than protein and vitamin b12. She also told me that deep fried foods are unhealthy because they contain trans fat.

What's your take on deep frying?

Cajun Triathlete: Great video. Great info. I've cut out all processed carbs except for a little rice here and there. I've been eating mainly meat, eggs, vegetables and fruit while keeping my daily carbs under 100. I haven't been doing it for long but I'm already feeling better and my mood has improved. Hoping to not look like a sausage in my tri kit this summer too if I can keep it up. lol.

Alexander Egger: Hi Bro! I am impressed. You are very balanced. I guess you consciously train yourself to be that way. Great Style and Humour. You are one of those authentic people which still have a lot of capacity for popular appeal. I truly enjoy your association and am convinced you are having the impact you try for: "In like an needle, out like a plow" ;)
I once heard a very wise man say, though, the one who praises me is my enemy and the one who critizeses me (constructively, of course) is my friend. So let me be your friend.
Try to be even more balanced, I think its your special gift (but keep your charming humor). Do not bend ever to popular demand. Be yourself more and more, and try to share yourself more and more. Believe in yourself. I do. Over and out, Bro

Healthy Recipe Channel: Keep Doing what you are doing brother. You are spreading a light of light in the form of knowledge in all of this Darkness and confusion that people are stuck in.

Thomas Baird: Neither cholesterol nor saturated fat cause heart disease. Credit Suisse sum up this 1950s myth in a recent report:

"A proper review of the so called “fat paradoxes” (France, Israel and Japan) suggests that saturated fats are actually healthy and omega-6 fats, at current levels of consumption in the developed world, are not.

The big concern regarding eating cholesterol-rich foods (e.g. eggs) is completely without foundation. There is basically no link between the cholesterol we eat and the level of cholesterol in our blood. This was already known thirty years ago and has been confirmed time and time again. Eating cholesterol rich foods has no negative effect on health in general or on risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), in particular."

Furthermore, a recent study out of Brazil concluded:

"Dietary recommendations to avoid full-fat dairy intake are not supported by our findings," the researchers conclude.

The study of more than 15,000 civil servants in Brazil examined the connection between the types of dairy products people consume and their likelihood to suffer from metabolic syndrome. The syndrome is characterized by high blood pressure, high blood sugar, belly fat, and risky levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood.

What the researchers found is that consumption of full-fat dairy products such as whole milk, as well as butter and yogurt, was associated with lower likelihood of the risk factors that make up metabolic syndrome. Consumption of low-fat dairy products, by contrast, was not associated with this health advantage, the researchers noted. The study was supported by the Brazilian Ministry of Health and the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation."

Finally, if you're in any doubt, France and Inuit countries eat a diet very high in saturated fat yet have very low rates of heart disease. The latter people eat as much as 75% of their daily calories from fat. Moreover, between 60-80% of the human brain is made from saturated fat!

porkyo123: I think the only way ta see if saturated fat is bad for you is try it and ware. Also back in the day hunters were not indulging in eating globs of meat . They also were moving there ass off. I'm wondering if they lived well into there 80's & 90's. My grandfather died at 44 of Heart disease and both aunts had bypass. I'm a meat eating fat consumer but, I don't indulge. My theory's is that I'm going by luck or hoping for the best.

sally smith: So frustrating isn't it? I wish people would at least consider
