on eating fat

20 Feb

Fat. Yes, fat. I love fat and fat is good for you. A whole host of reasons exist for why fat is so good for you and  I can’t cram it all into one post. SO, I’m going to do it as a series of posts. I’ll address the reasons and kinds of fats that are good for your health. As you read, you will quickly realize I don’t subscribe to conventional wisdom when it comes to the kinds of fats we should be eating. But as Michael Pollan has started showing us, conventional “wisdom” of what we should eat, is fraught with bad and misleading science. I instead turn to Weston Price as a source of wisdom founded in historical case studies of traditional diets.

Look for the next post on fat and its importance in hydration (believe me, its cool)!
