Something you should know about the health of saturated fats.
In my travels, I meet many people who want to share with me their new diet change success story. It’s very common to talk to people as I travel who are taking drugs for high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes. They also experience chronic fatigue and are 20 to 30 pounds overweight. They shared with me that they were able to turn their lives around by one simple dietary change. Adopt a diet of low carbohydrates, around 70 grams per day primarily from fruits and vegetables, unlimited animal protein, saturated fats, olive oil and coconut oil, and usually within 30 to 60 days they lose 20 to 30 pounds. We have been so brainwashed to think that saturated fats are bad and fats in general are unhealthy, while no one challenges the American diet loaded with empty calories from refined carbohydrates and sugar. The people that I met who make this change along with the huge weight loss without struggling, are no longer on medication for blood pressure or Type 2 diabetes. The diet that is advocated by medical experts and even perhaps your physician is dead wrong. Most of our medical conditions today are brought about by the consumption of sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and refined carbohydrates which makes up 70% of the American diet. Think back to the early 1900s or just to 1940 and 1950. Our diet was high in animal protein, fats, low in sugar, low in carbohydrates and almost absent of packaged goods. America was the healthiest country in the world. We were lean, taking very few medications and infrequently did we seek out a physicians’ assistance. Today on average, most adults are on six prescriptions and in some states up to 17 prescriptions per capita annually. Drug companies have gone from the early 1900s of health care to money care. Many scientific studies are falsified to enable them to sell their drugs early and to keep them on the market with some of their unknown dangerous side effects. Changing the diet to what I call the “Traditional Diet” will change your life. For more on my diet and exercise plan, go to www.TerryTalksNutrition.com and you’ll find both on the home page.
