Saturated Fats Not so Bad After All

The findings of a new research have indicated that the much hated (and avoided) saturated fats do not contribute towards raising the level of fatty acids in the blood, as was previously thought. Carbohydrates play a much greater role doing that, it has now been confirmed. Those cutting down on their saturated fat intake for health reasons or for weight loss will, therefore, benefit much more by reducing the amount of carbohydrates in their diet.
According to senior author Prof. Jeff Volek, the study “challenges the conventional wisdom that has demonized saturated fat and extends our knowledge of why dietary saturated fat doesn’t correlate with disease.”
Long derided, saturated fats have been linked to a wide range of health problems like heart disease, high blood cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and weight gain. The new findings suggest that “we can increase their intake without raising the level of fats in blood.”
On the other hand, carbohydrates were found to be linked to higher levels of fatty acid which, in turn, puts people at greater risk for diabetes and heart disease.
“The point is you don’t necessarily save the saturated fat that you eat, and the primary regulator of what you save in terms of fat is the carbohydrate in your diet,” Volek of Ohio State University, said in the report.
“People believe you are what you eat,” says Volek, “but in reality, you are what you save from what you eat. The point is you don’t necessarily save the saturated fat you eat. And the primary regulator of what you save in terms of fat is the carbohydrate in your diet.”
