Why eating fat doesn’t make you fat! — 7 Comments

    • I’m taking the distance learning program. The class will have three workshops together, but everything else is done through online classwork. It’s a well designed program, and I’ve already learned a lot about nutrition, physiology and health. It does require much study time so I haven’t been able to post as often as I would like about the things I’m learning. I highly recommend the program.

  1. Gary Taubes book “Good Calories, Bad Calories” (if you have the dedication to read it from cover to cover as I did) gives the science behind this and explains the research done over the past 60 years that supports this. Basically, whenever you consume carbohydrates you trigger the insulin response which has the effect of storing fat on the body. Eating fat does not trigger this response.

    • I agree, I’ve read Gary Taubes Good Calories, Bad Calories. It is excellent for a detailed explanation of the science behind carbohydrate and fat consumption. I listed his Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It because it provides much of the same information but in a simplified shorter, easier to read version.
