Fat Is It Really The Devil
January 6, 2014
Hosted by Kellie Hill
Fat has been demonized by the diet industry as not healthy eating. But some fats have a necessary place in all healthy diets. Fat is the body’s chief storage form for the energy from food eaten in excess of immediate need. Fats also provide most of the energy needed to perform much of the body’s work, especially muscular work. Padding fats protect the internal organs from shock. Insulation fats protect against temperature extremes. In foods, nutrient fats provide essential fatty acids and transport fats carry fat-soluble vitamins. Fat contributes to feelings of fullness, aids in the absorption of some nutrients and phytochemicals, as well as helps make foods tender. The key to eating healthy is to find the balance between the healthy fat the body needs and what fat will harm the body. Kellie will identify the difference with the help of Dr. Udo Erasmus, author of the bestselling book Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill.

Kellie’s philosophy is that there is no one-size fits all diet. Because of bio-individuality (each one of us is different), most diets will work for some people and not for others. We need to eat nutrient dense, whole foods that have been properly prepared. We need real food, as close to the form it was originally grown and raised in, prepared in a way that preserves or even enhances the nutritional value of the food.
Kellie believes that it is important to investigate how the body is using the food as well as understanding what is happening in the bigger context of an individual’s life. She knows that we are obviously more than what we eat and that can have a very big impact on how the body deals with food.
