Well my friends, I am here to change that. Contrary to popular belief, fat is your friend.
My purpose on this blog is simple: Reverse the fat phobia.
I have spent most of my life struggling to manage my weight. From childhood obesity to being overweight through high school and well into my adult years. I never understood how I could cut my calories, eat fat free dairy, sauté my veggies in PAM (gross, right?), eat low fat buttery alternatives and chicken breasts for days and still be overweight. I was beyond frustrated and you can imagine the absolute disbelief I experienced when I learned that I may have simply had it wrong all along.
Fat was never the evil culprit behind weight gain and heart disease in our nation. In fact, it was the absence of this vital macronutrient that has been to blame.
So with that introduction I welcome you. Here you will continue to find plenty of information about real food and insight to my personal trials and errors throughout the years. I hope to enlighten you about this fat fallacy we have been fed and reverse those thoughts that come to mind when we hear the word "Fat".
Say it again with me, "Fat". Didn't leave such a bad taste in your mouth this time, now did it?
We'll work on it....
