Eat Fat to Lose Fat: A Real-Life Example

Written by

I’ve said it before. Fat isn’t bad for you. It’s not the quantity of fat you eat, but the kinds of fats that matter.

In short:

Vegetable oils = BAD

Animal fats = GOOD

(Go read this post on the subject if you’re fuzzy on why this is so.) Mark Sisson, of Mark’s Daily Apple, posted a sample menu today of his low-carb diet. Unlike many Atkins or Zone dieters, Mark prioritizes getting lots of good, clean, healthy animal fats from grass-fed/pastured/wild animals.

Of particular interest to me was the final breakdown of his meals for an average day. 55% of his caloric intake came from fat!

But does Mark gain weight? No. In fact, he’s remarkably fit.

Granted, Mark regularly exercises. But, he’s not stuck on an endless cardio fitness routine either.

My point is simply this: If you want to lose weight, consider switching to good fats and eliminating or reducing your intake of grains.

Why am I beating up on grains? Well, to put it simply, people are not cows. We are not ruminants who can easily digest grasses. We don’t have four stomachs. And grains are basically just domesticated grass. The only way we can even start to digest grains properly is if we sprout, soak, or ferment the grain in order to pre-digest it.

Many traditional diets around the world include grains — but not in the perverse quantities of the Standard American Diet (SAD). Plus, what grains they do consume are unrefined and usually sprouted or fermented in some way.

So, if weight loss is on your list of New Year’s goals, do yourself a favor. Start eating healthy fats and avoid unhealthy grains.
