saturated fat

  1. Low fat dieters have higher heart risk

    Low-fat diet takes a deadly turn

    It's the biggest nag in modern medicine -- one you've heard countless times from mainstream doctors, government health officials, and know-it-all TV talking heads.

    Saturated fat is bad for you!

    Just one problem with that advice: Saturated fat ISN'T bad for you. In fact, it's absolutely critical to your body and especially to your heart -- but don't take my word for it.

    Ask the heart patients who took part in a study where half of them were forced to slash their intake of supposedly unhealthy saturated animal fats and increase their intake of supposedly healthy polyunsaturated fats such as safflower oil.

    Well... you can try to ask them. Just don't expect too many answers -- because the ones who made that switch started dropping like flies.

    They died off at DOUBLE the rate of the heart patients who were allowed to keep eating saturated animal fats. They had a higher risk of death from all causes, and more specifically a higher risk of death from heart disease and other heart problems, according to the study in BMJ.

    What'd I tell you?

    Of course, I've been saying this for decades now, and the science has backed me up time and time again. Yet mainstream talking heads and government officials keep telling you to eat your vegetables until you start to sprout yourself.

    Then they have the audacity to wonder why heart disease remains our leading cause of death, year after year after year!

    Well, it's time to stop the wondering. If you want to protect your heart and live a long and healthy life, eat real butter, real steak, and all the fresh natural animal fats -- SATURATED fats -- you can handle.

    Skip the sugars, skip the carbs, skip the processed foods, and skip the vegetable oils in all their forms.

    And if you want to nibble on a plant or two, be my guest -- but do it because you want to, not because you have to.

  2. It wasn't the fat that did Paula in

    Paula Deen admits what we already knew

    Anyone surprised by the news that Paula Deen has diabetes hasn't been paying attention.

    Her books and TV shows are like "how to" guides for getting the disease -- and now that you've bought those books, watched her show, subscribed to her magazine, eaten her food, and gotten just as fat and sick as her, she wants you to buy one more thing: meds.

    You didn't think her little coming out party last week was about health or honesty, did you?

    Of course not -- the so-called "Queen of Southern Cuisine" is now a highly paid spokeswoman for a diabetes drug, complete with a new Web site funded by the drug's maker (I won't mention the company, they've gotten enough free publicity out of this already).

    Naturally, the media is ready to launch an all-out attack on dietary fat and cholesterol as a scapegoat for Deen's disease. And let's face it, most people are already on the fat-will-kill-you bandwagon, so it won't seem like much of a stretch.

    But for all of Paula dietary don'ts, the one thing she's doing right is cooking with saturated fat. This dietary outcast will NOT give you diabetes and heart disease. (Don't believe me?

    No, the bad guy here is not the fat, it's the sugar, Sugar -- along with the pasta, breadcrumbs, potatoes, and all the other carbs she throws into the deep fryer.

    Ever see what she does to a strip of bacon? Don't watch -- it's ugly. I've seen her take a perfectly good piece of bacon, wrap it around a brick of mac-and-cheese, coat the whole thing in breadcrumbs and then deep-fry it.

    She's even created a bacon-egg-and-meat-sandwich that's served on a glazed donut.

    A glazed donut, for crying out loud. She's lucky all she has is diabetes!

    All that, and I haven't even gotten to dessert. Think sugar, sugar, sugar, and more sugar -- mountains of sugar, usually mixed with some combination of processed cream cheese, flour, and food coloring.

    Deen claims the diagnosis might lead to some "lighter" recipes, but it won't really change how she cooks or eats. She says she's always practiced "moderation" -- and all I can say is... Look where it got you, Lady!

    There's simply no such thing as a moderate glazed donut habit -- but that's not really Paula talking anyway. That's the drug company's message: Keep eating Paula's crap... and keep taking meds with Paula.

    Don't try to beat the disease -- just learn to live with it.

    Like Paula.

    Well, I have a better idea. Ditch the sugar and ditch the carbs -- and if you never have a glazed donut again, it'll be too soon.

    Instead, make sure you get a healthy Daily Dose of saturated fat. Not only will avoiding it do nothing to help PROTECT you from heart disease, it also won't reduce your risk of prostate cancer. It may even help boost your immune system, and much, much more.

    You'll discover that the sweetest thing you can eat is a guilt-free steak, bacon, and eggs -- and don't forget the butter!

  3. Saturated fat to the rescue

    In an American study of post-menopausal women with heart disease, saturated fat in the diet proved to be associated with a lesser progression of the disease than did higher consumption of "healthy" unsaturated fats.
