Traditional Fats and Their Role in Health
Insulin resistance occurs when cholesterol deficient cells can no longer let glucose into them. In order to utilize insulin, the cells need cholesterol, vitamin D and calcium. Fat and Cholesterol are beneficial partners – they coexist in the cell. Excess abdominal fat is a result of the immune system attempting to protect damaged cholesterol from getting into the organs. Fat and Cholesterol accumulate in the dysfunctional fat cells in the abdominal area – keeping it away from our vital organs. It might surprise you to learn that obesity and anorexia are two sides of the same coin. Anorexia, like obesity, is a result of a high carbohydrate diet with severe cholesterol deficiency. Without good fats, such as coconut oil, lard, duck fat, ghee or beef tallow – our weight cannot properly stabilize.
