Happy Mardi Gras!

Happy Mardi Gras! Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday. In that spirit, I'll share with you a couple of articles about dietary fat.

First, Why You Need Fat in Your Diet, by Jillian Michaels. She says that dietary fat is essential.

I shared that article first because it's short and non-technical, and because Jillian is right that dietary fat is essential for health. Where we diverge in opinion is over the saturated fat issue.

Now here's a really superior read, What If Saturated Fat Is Not the Problem? by Regina Willshire.I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!

Just read Gary Taube's "Good calories, Bad calories". He does an excellent job explaining the "misunderstanding" of saturated fats.
