207: Jennifer McLagan And Her Book ‘Fat: An Appreciation of a Misunderstood Ingredient’


Say what you want about food, but it just plain tastes good! Ask anyone on the street what gives food that incredible flavor and most people will guess it is the sugar or the carbohydrates. But actually the best way to make foods irresistible and highly-satisfying is to add more fat to your diet. When you get all the facts about fat and learn why it is important to weight and health, there’s no reason why hunger or frustration with our diet should ever happen. That’s what we discuss today with the author of the insightful new book entitled Fat: An Appreciation of a Misunderstood Ingredient, With Recipes.

In Episode 207 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we are visited by Jennifer McLagan who tells us why dietary fat has been unfairly maligned and why consuming fat is one of the most natural, healthy things you could possibly do for your body. She exposes the fallacy of the low-fat diets, explains why INCREASING your animal fat intake is crucial (especially grass-fed beef!), laments how the vegetable oils have become the source of fat for far too many people, the history of the fake fats like margarine, and so much more. If you want a good education on the subject of dietary fat, then this is the podcast for you.
