"Eating Fat Does Not Make You Fat"
Indeed, the National Obesity Forum in the United Kingdom recently stepped up the controversy over dietary fats with the release of a report stating, "Eating fat does not make you fat."
It quoted several trials suggesting that following a higher-fat, low-carbohydrate diet may be better than a low-fat diet for decreasing weight and cardiovascular risk.
However, it went further and advised people to stop counting calories but cut down on snacking, because different types of foods have different metabolic effects. And, it went on to say that "saturated fat does not cause heart disease," while full-fat dairy may have health benefits.
