One of the concerns some of my clients have about the GAPS diet plan is the consumption of saturated fat. This topic has been in the news a good bit recently with the “news” that the science backing the low-fat diet and avoidance of saturated fat was never actually scientifically proven and that a recent meta analysis shows no basis for the recommendations that still abound.
Sally Fallon Morell, President of the Weston A. Price Foundation and a proponent of traditional diets was featured this weekend (Feb. 14) on The People’s Pharmacy. This interview is available free for the next 4 weeks and I’m providing a link here to the website so you can enjoy the interview. Sally shares some of the articles that have been published recently in scientific journals which question findings published decades ago about saturated fat in the diet. This is especially important information for anyone choosing the GAPS diet and should provide comfort in the knowledge that fat and cholesterol are NOT the villians they have been made out to be.
Enjoy this hour-long interview while it’s available free! Oh . . . and enjoy the fat on your steak, chicken or fish!
