YAY for fat!
CW-minded people's aversion to fat seems so surreal to me now. They preach the gospel of 'everything in moderation,' without actually practising it - blithely eating twice as much carbs as their body needs and practically zero fat! Fat is where the vitamins are. Fat is the part that makes it taste nice. When you are losing body fat, it means your body is running mainly on saturated fat! Why on earth would it be inherently bad for you? The fact is that it's not inherently bad, neither are carbs, getting the balance right is what works. The balance for most people is to eat plenty of it, and if they need to cut down on calories to lose weight, cut out the one thing the body can do without, which is an excess starch/sugar.
After 5 months of Primal, I am now doing the GAPS diet to heal food intolerances. This diet is based around animal proteins/fats and is very low on carbs/fibre. I'm still losing weight and have never felt better!
