If you have missed any of the past 8 days reviews you can see them by clicking here.
Today one of my meals consisted of a grass fed burger and some veggies with a touch of real butter made from grass fed cows.
As I was eating I began thinking about how we have been misguided about saturated fat and how we have been led to believe that it is the root cause of heart disease.
I wanted to talk to you today about the truth about saturated fat and fill you in on what the real culprit is when it comes to heart disease.
Check out this short video from Isabel where she gives you a background on saturated fats and shares a few interesting statistics:
Just to summarize:
The consumption of saturated fats is NOT the reason why we get heart disease.
It is the packaged, processed, sugary, refined foods that result in heart disease.
Prior to 1920 the incidence of heart disease was very low.
Heart disease did not begin to increase until after 1950.
Between the years 1910 and 1970, we actually consumed less animal fat and butter than ever before yet heart disease still went on the rise.
During this time the consumption of vegetable oils (which are highly processed and refined) increased 400%!!!!!
Additionally, sugar and processed food consumption increased by 60%.
Therefore, saturated fats cannot be to blame for heart disease.
Rather it is the highly refined, processed, sugary foods that are the killers.
