Saturated Fats vs. Carbohydrates

woman with meat3Doubling Saturated Fat in the Diet Does Not Increase Saturated Fat in Blood is the title of a recently published study. This fact is probably a surprise to most people since saturated fat has been and continues to be misunderstood. The study headed by Dr. Jeff Volek at The Ohio State University found that people could consume up to two or three times the intake of saturated fat and yet have their blood level of fatty acids drop. More fatty acids in the blood are dangerous but increasing levels of carbohydrate in the diet are responsible for increasing fatty acids in the blood, not fat.

This study adds to the increasing number of findings that carbohydrate ingestion is the culprit in diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic illnesses. Eating whole foods such as eggs, butter, meats, etc. is healthier than the processed, nutrition-poor carb foods that fill our supermarket shelves.
