High Fat vs Low Fat Diet

High Fat vs Low Fat Diet

High Fat vs Low Fat Diet?

Which is better?

Fat is Bad

We’ve been told fat is bad, especially saturated fat, that it leads to heart disease and should be avoided or eaten in moderation. Some people have tried to differentiate between healthy fat and unhealthy fat.

Fat is Good

However the tide is starting to turn. The Ketogenic Diet is picking up steam. The ketogenic diet is a high fat, low carb, and low/medium protein diet. Is this the way to go?

What do other animals eat?

In order to get to the bottom of this I wanted to see what other animals do.

Wild animals use natural instincts and eat what they are designed to eat without anyone telling them what is good or bad.

Do they eat a high fat diet or not? Is it high carb? How much protein?

Here’s the tweetstorm short-version of it (and under my saved instagram highlights under “Fat” I talk a bit about this):

Option A

Option B

Option C

Option D

It turns out there is some pretty good evidence for what we are designed to eat. 

Maybe this could end the “high fat vs low fat” debate.

By the way, come join me on twitter for the next tweetstorm 🙂

Or better – I also email these out every Saturday at 7
