You can find a growing number of health and wellness experts around today who have been working on perpetuating the idea that we've been misinformed about fat for decades.
You can also find a number of doctors today who also claim to be following this diet themselves, who've also asserted that it's a lifestyle they recommend to their patients too.
Those who follow the high-fat diet will often consume a variety of healthy fats such as coconut oil, nuts, grass-fed dairy products, olive oil, avocados, and fish. Why do they consume so much fat? Because it's their fuel.
Eating fat to burn fat?
More recently, a new report suggests that sugar might be more likely to influence weight gain than high-fat foods.
Previously, researchers have discovered, after looking at people with low-fat vs low-carb diets, that those with low-fat diets were more likely to die because the high-carb consumption was seen to be linked to a higher risk of mortality.
Surprisingly, they saw that total fat and individual types of fat were linked with a lower mortality rate. They also didn't observe total fats or types of fat to be associated with cardiovascular disease either, which is a common concern when it comes to consuming either healthy or unhealthy fats.
Based on the results from the recent study, researchers have even suggested that global dietary guidelines be revised. And this isn't the first time that doctors have sought to try and influence formal food guidelines that are still perpetuating outdated misinformation about carbs and fats.
