Here's a basic rule of thumb:
"Here's a basic rule of thumb: sugar makes you fat and fat makes you lean. Of course for this to really be true, we need to define what we mean by fat. You've heard that not all calories are created equal? Well, the same goes for fats. When we talk about a high-fat diet, we're talking about good fats, fats like avocado, grass-fed beef and butter, pasture-raised eggs, olive oil, cold water fish, coconut and many, many other delicious things. To understand this, research has shown that when we reduce the amount of fat in our diet our total cholesterol drops. The problem is that by reducing the total amount of fat intake, we tend to increase our sugar/carbohydrate intake and as a result our light and fluffy HDL cholesterol drops, putting us at greater risk for heart disease. What's more, when we eat SUGAR our blood glucose level increases rapidly and our pancreas secretes the hormone insulin to extract excess glucose from the blood. This is then stored first as glycogen, until those stores are full, and then as…drumroll...triglycerides, or FAT! Something magical happens when we eat (good) fat, the opposite! The pancreas DOESN'T secrete insulin and the glycogen stores are not overfilled and there is no production of triglycerides. Fat actually slows down the absorption of sugar so when we eat low-fat sweets, we're really speeding up the fattening process. It really is a shame we call fats FAT. 📷 @colinclark"
