Gross Disgusting Fat
Just wanted to get your attention. When one hears the word “fat” a variety of images are conjured up. Most of these thoughts can be associated with our title today. Gross, disgusting.
Wonder Dietitian is here to help you think positive thoughts when you hear the word “Fat.”
Good things about fat:
- It makes baby’s cheeks kissable.
- It makes it so we can absorb beautiful vitamins like A, D, E and K.
- Some fats are anti-inflammatory.
- Fats make our foods taste good.
Healthy fats should make up about ¼ of our diet. Healthy fats are found in foods like salmon, walnuts, almonds, avocadoes and olives and olive oil.
When people cut fat out of their diet they typically fill in with carbohydrates. We have spent a lot of time talking about naked carbohydrates. (Join PETG today!)
These foods tend to increase triglycerides and blood sugar.
There is one other fat concern to discuss today.
If you are tempted to send lots of warm and fuzzy emails to me today, boasting about how Wonder-ful Wonder Dietitian is then you might cause me to have a FAT-Head.
I have a great idea. Let’s try it and see what happens.
