Eat More Fat


Common sense at last!

As loyal readers know I have long expounded the meritorious benefits of eating fat. The body is like a car engine, it needs to be lubricated otherwise it seizes up. Hence fat in the blood stream aids the natural flow of blood around the arteries and veins etc.

Step forward Michael Mosley on "Trust Me I'm a Doctor" who says that contrary to conventional advice, eating more of some fats may be good for our health.

Earlier this year a systematic review, funded by the British Heart Foundation, "Association of dietary, circulating and supplement fatty acids with coronary risk" examined the links between eating saturated fat and heart disease. Despite looking at the results of nearly 80 studies involving more than a half million people they were unable to find convincing evidence that eating saturated fats leads to greater risk of heart disease.

In fact, when they looked at blood results, they found that higher levels of some saturated fats, in particular a type of saturated fat you get in milk and dairy products called margaric acid, were associated with a lower risk of heart disease.

A recent study, published in the Scandinavian Journal of Primary Health Care, "High dairy fat intake related to less central obesity" followed 1,589 Swedish men for 12 years. They found that those following a low-fat diet (no butter, low-fat milk and no cream) were more likely to develop fat around the gut (central obesity) than those eating butter, high-fat milk and whipping cream.

One reason for this is that fat is extremely satiating, so when people cut it out of their diet they consciously or unconsciously replace the calories with something else, often refined carbohydrates like white bread or pasta.
