I Told You Butter Was Good For You!

blue bonnetIn case you haven’t caught all the science being revealed lately on the BENEFITS of saturated fat, cholesterol, and BUTTER, here’s an excerpt from the NYT, with the full link:

“That the worm is turning became increasingly evident a couple of weeks ago, when a meta-analysis published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine found that there’s just no evidence to support the notion that saturated fat increases the risk of heart disease. (In fact, there’s some evidence that a lack of saturated fat may be damaging.) The researchers looked at 72 different studies and, as usual, said more work — including more clinical studies — is needed. For sure. But the days of skinless chicken breasts and tubs of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter may finally be drawing to a close.

The tip of this iceberg has been visible for years, and we’re finally beginning to see the base. Of course, no study is perfect and few are definitive. But the real villains in our diet — sugar and ultra-processed foods — are becoming increasingly apparent. You can go back to eating butter, if you haven’t already.”

Our body is made out of Water, Protein, Fat, and Minerals.  Literally.  Vitamins make things happen (enzymatic reactions), and Carbs provide fuel for cells.  Eat foods that MAKE YOUR BODY.  Your body could care a less about calories, honest.  Who benefits from perpetuating the Low Fat/No Fat/Calories In/Calories Out line?  Big Food, Big Pharma, and Big Business.  Dieting is a Business; Real Whole Food is the key to Good Health and Good Weight.

    It’s catching on Debbie. Almost every week, someone on TV is talking about the benefits of whole foods over the stuff we have been brainwashed to eat over the years. Even on PBS nightly news last week,they interviewed an owner of a restaurant in DC who uses all whole foods and spoke like a nutritionist. Unfortunately, I didn’t get his name or his restaurant’s name as I had half an ear listening assuming that he wasn’t going to be worth listening to and then perked up only when he was saying the information you gave us. Dr. Oz, whom I catch only now and again, (snowy days)devoted a whole show on how wheat has been compromised over many years and how he was taught differently in school and now he is making the changes in his life. And…He is cardiologist by profession. Step by step.

    Sue you’re so right! It is catching on. More and more people are realizing that there’s been a TON of misinformation fed to us for decades now.
