If you eat fat, you’ll get fat. Sounds reasonable, right? So by that logic, if you eat money, do you get rich?
Dietary fats have been getting a bad rap for the better part of four decades now, thanks in the most part to the “low-fat/fat-free” ideology of consumer marketing. In truth, excess kilojoules make you fat, and yes, dietary fat is high in kilojoules. But if a high-fat diet is all it takes to make you fat, someone forgot to tell the traditional Inuit people, whose diet consists of around 90 per cent fat.
If these “fatty” foods have been exiled from your diet, it’s time to welcome them back with open arms.
