There was a time where fats and oils were the enemies; we thought we gained belly fat by eating fat. Suddenly, everything was fat free, and we all felt a little safer. Now, we know there are many types of fat, and saturated fats, including fat in meat, butter or lard, are not as bad as we thought. The real enemies are trans-fats, and you won’t find those in natural foods, they’re common in processed food.
Stay away from red meat, they said, it’s unhealthy. Now we know this is not entirely true. Red meat is packed with iron, healthy saturated fats and amino-acids. In fact, it’s hard to stay fit without red meat in our diet, that if you want to avoid supplements. Of course, in excess, red meat is as bad as any food, but enjoying a steak from time to time is a wonderful idea; doctors recommend it.
