If you’re anything like me, you began watching your weight at a very young age.
A tragically young age.
I remember sitting in fourth grade chorus class, knuckles on the chair, trying to squeeze my thighs together so they didn’t look fat next to my bony-legged friends.
In high school I ran for miles even on weekends after cross-country practice to try to slim up in order to look like the lead runners on my team… who were all super-lean.
In college I avoided going to restaurants with friends because my diet restrictions embarrassed… well… even me.
Can Avoiding Fat Make You Fat?
Like many of you, I grew up in a family full of overweight men & women.
Yet every overweight & obese person I saw drank diet soda, had done Weight Watchers many times over, and even religiously watched fat and used low-fat or “fat-free” foods.
It made me feel doomed…
Why are so many people who avoid fat some of the most overweight people I know?
Scientists have been researching this seemingly paradoxical trend of a society obsessed with low-fat foods that nevertheless continues to gain girth.
Here’s what they found:
1. Europeans Eat Tons of Saturated Fats and Have the Lowest Risk of Heart Disease.
I’ll never forget living in France about 10 years ago and watching women walk around with baguette sandwiches loaded with fatty meats and cheeses; cooking everything with gratuitous amounts of butter, and generally looking very thin and healthy!
This is due in part to a more mobile lifestyle – people generally walk more places in European countries.
But there’s an actual term for this: “The French Paradox”. This is a phrase used to reference the incredibly low incidence of coronary heart disease in France (in relation to the high-fat diets that are common.)
But did you know that most European countries also have many fewer deaths due to heart disease… despite their ‘high-fat’ diets? [British Journal of Nutrition, 2012]
There is a clear paradoxical relationship between fat consumption and heart disease deaths accross Europe.
2. The Publishing of US Lowfat Dietary Guidelines Correlates Precisely With The Obesity Epidemic
The National Center for Health Statistics charted the shocking fact that obesity has risen dramatically since the precise time the Low-Fat Dietary Guidelines were published in the U.S in 1977. And they continue to rise every year.
Why is this? Well, most likely it’s because many times people are replacing animal fats and oils with things like sugar. This is a recipe for disaster!

3. High-Fat/Low-Carb Diets Cause MORE Weight Loss Than Low-Fat Diets!
Most people are pretty clear on the fact that margarine is a toxic substitute to butter.
The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism conducted a randomized study that compared a low-carb diet to a Low-Cal, Low-Fat diet.
In this study, women who ate a low-carb, high-fat diet lost more than TWICE the weight of women on a Low-Fat, Low-Cal diet!
According to the British Journal of Nutrition study (above), heart disease is lower in countries with high-fat diets.
AND it appears to lead to healthier weight, as well!
4. Restricting Red Meat and High-Fat Dairy Products Correlates with The Obesity Epidemic
The New England Journal of Medicine has charted the rise of obesity at almost the precise time that white meat began replacing red meat… and high-fat dairy began to be replaced with Low-Fat Dairy.
Kris Gunnars of Authority Nutrition says it best when he states, “These foods have sustained humans in good health for a very long time and blaming new diseases on old foods just doesn’t make sense.”
The higher the incidence of Type II Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease, and Obesity… the more people are replacing red meat and full-fat dairy with white meat and low-fat or fat-free dairy.
They’re both trending trending at a shockingly similar pace and correlation!
