In this video, we’re going to talk about the dangers of an ultra low-fat diet.
I’m talking about a low-fat diet where the fats make up only 15% of your total calories. With the diet I recommend, fats make up about 70% of your total calories.
Why low-fat diets don’t work:
Well, there are a lot of things in fat that we need, such as fat-soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids. Fat is also needed to make structural parts of our tissues—including cell membranes.
Dangers of an ultra low-fat diet:
1. Decrease in vitamins A, D, E, K
2. Risk of mental problems
3. Increased risk of cancer
4. Decrease in HDL/increase in triglycerides
5. Decreased fat—increased carbs
6. Never satisfied—hungry
7. Low-fat high protein—hard on kidneys
