3 Lies the Health Experts told us About Fat

We were lied to…


“Health” experts told us over and over that FAT was bad. Eating Fat was making us fat… but that was a BIG FAT LIE!


Three Lies We Have Been Told

  • Fats Are Unhealthy
  • Fats Make You Gain Weight
  • Fats Give You High Cholesterol


Truth: Fat Keeps Us Healthy

Every cell in your body is covered in fat. It is needed for hormones, for nerves, for your brain to function. It is also key for a healthy metabolism. You also need fat to absorb fat soluble vitamins.

It is an Excellent Source of Vitamin A. Grass-fed butter has even more vitamin A than regular butter thanks to the cow’s grass eating diet. By consuming grass-fed butter, you directly increase your intake of butyric acid, which science has shown can decrease inflammation. Conjugated linoleic acid are found in high amounts in grassfed butter! Arachidonic Acid serves as a precursor to leukotrienes, prostaglandins, and thromboxanes, collectively known as eicosanoids which are important for immunity and immune response.

All these are great for keeping us healthy and all found in healthy fat sources!


Truth: Fat Helps us Lose Weight

MCTs (Medium-Chain Triglycerides) have been show to help suppress appetites which is great if you deal with cravings or are trying to lose weight. The MCTs found in butter (and coconut oil) are able to be converted immediately into fuel for your body’s muscles and organs.


Truth: Fat Helps Lower Your Cholesterol

Grassfed Butter is Rich in Vital Cholesterol. Cholesterol is needed for healthy cellular function. It’s also required to make key hormones and vital to brain and nervous system development and function.

It’s actually Great for your heart! In the study, margarine intake increased the risk of coronary heart disease, but butter intake was not at all associated with coronary heart disease occurrence.



Not All Fat is Created Equal


Trans fats are bad – that is true! 

Most trans fats are formed through an industrial process that adds hydrogen to vegetable oil, which causes the oil to become solid at room temperature. This partially hydrogenated oil is less likely to spoil, so foods made with it have a longer shelf life.

It is found in so many of our foods:

  • Baked Foods
  • Margarine
  • Snacks
  • Fried Foods



But what fats are we supposed to be eating? 

Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT oils, saturated fats like grassfed butter, coconut oil) are GOOD FOR YOU! 

MCTs are the fastest metabolized energy, they help you focus, they keep you full longer.

Medium-Chain Triglycerides have some amazing benefits:

  • Easy to Digest and Used for Quick Energy
  • Fuel for your Brain
  • Help you Stay Full
  • Help you Absorb Fat soluble vitamins
  • Boost Your metabolism
  • Help you think more clearly
