Why is Saturated Fat Actually Good for your Health?by Martin Johnson The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat, & Cheese B
This post is supporting the decision of you consuming saturated fats moderately—remember the word moderately. For more than four decades, people have spoken about saturated fats in pretty hushed tones. And many have erroneously stated that dietary fat is good at making you obese or in clogging your arteries. And this notion has been widely accepted the “common-sense fact.”
Because of this simple reason, people often want to include slim milk and other fat-free food items in their everyday diet. People ditch egg yolks, pork, butter, steak, and cheese just to stay in the best of shape every time. However, in this post, we’re giving you the reason to eat moderately butter, cheese, and other food items rich in saturated fat within your daily diet.
The first mistake in the first flawed diet study
Ok, so there was a research done in circa 1970, and the research paper was named as The Seven Countries Study. The research work analyzed 12,763 people belonging to seven countries, and it looked into the correlation between saturated-fat intake and heart diseases.
But the correlation happened to be flawed as the study never factored in a number of elements—sugar consumption, smoking rates, and exercise levels—that contribute to building a diseased, weak heart. Now, that’s surely an awful lot of data left behind while completing the research work.
A complete research
If you’re looking forward to reading a complete research work on this topic, then you should go ahead and pick Nina Teicholz’s The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet. The book debunks this major myth that saturated fats and other similar dietary fat elements are bad for your health. The book is written by the investigative journalists Nina Teicholz who’s even shared her insights into food sciences for esteemed publications such as Gourmet and Men’s Health magazines.
Nina Teicholz has closely associated with food science for nearly 2 years as an associate director for Center for Globalization and Sustainable Development at Columbia University. That’s precisely why Nina Teicholz's The Big Fat Surprise is an apt read if you are looking to explore the true benefits that your body can get from saturated fats.
Because of her deep subject-matter expertise as a food scientist and because of her rich experience as an expository journalist, the novel is doubtlessly well researched. Due to this particular reason, Nina Teicholz’s book has become an international and New York Times bestseller. So what are you waiting for? Go ahead, grab your copy, and enlighten yourself about the benign nature of saturated fats.
