KDP Episode 029: Don’t Fear (Or Glorify) Fat


Welcome back to the Ketodontist Podcast!  Today we are talking about fat, saturated fat in particular.  With the recent claims that coconut oil is “pure poison”, we wanted to dive into this topic and shine some light.  In this episode we discuss:

 

Is coconut oil worse than other fat sources?

Is saturated fat bad for you?

Who should, and shouldn’t, avoid saturated fat?

Why context is important on determining fat intake

And MORE!

Friend of the show Marty Kendall shared a post of his with me and I wanted to pass it along as it jives with this episode beautifully.
