Does eating saturated animal fat make you fat?
Actually, eating sugar and a high carbohydrate diet will turn to fat in the body. A better marker than cholesterol is how high your triglycerides are. The amount of fat your body carries is directly proportional to the amount of sugars/carbs you take in, stress, and the amount of toxins your body is exposed to. What are you putting on your skin? And what are you cleaning your house with?
A high carbohydrate diet will also lead to insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, and eventually diabetes. Fat does not create fat in the body. Sugar does, and those foods that break down quickly into sugar.
But won’t the saturated animal fat increase LDL cholesterol, and shouldn’t everyone go on a statin if their total cholesterol is over 230?
