Oh those Hungry for Change people. I signed-up for their email notifications so that I could stay abreast of the latest stuff they’re peddling. One of the more recent messages came with this headline: 5 Fats That Don’t Make You Fat.
I visited their website so see what these magical fats are. They are: coconut oil, nuts, avocados, seeds, and olive oil. I’m not even going to bother quibbling with the fact that the items included in this list are not all fats because they do contain fat and I think that’s what they were getting at. Yes, these are all healthy foods and we know that eating fat is not going to automatically make you fat. However, eating too many calories (i.e. more than you expend) most certainly will “make you fat” and eating too much of any of these five “fats” is no exception to this rule.
