#1 Low-Carb Fear: Saturated Fat

time-saturated-fat-butter-cover-smWill saturated fat clog my arteries and give me a heart attack? No. This is one of the biggest nutrition myths of the last few decades. Fortunately, during the last several years more and more experts and organizations have realized that natural saturated fats are completely OK and healthy.

Saturated fat is found in real foods that we’ve consumed throughout evolution. It’s natural to eat saturated fats, it’s found in lots of natural foods, even human breast milk is full of it.

During the last ten years or so, many reviews of all available science have come to the conclusion that there’s no connection between saturated fat and heart disease. This fact has also been recognized in many high-quality newspapers, such as TIME. It’s simply been a mistake.

Don’t fear fat. Updated experts don’t.

#2 Low-Carb Fear: Cholesterol

LDL cholesterolDoes a low-carb diet cause high cholesterol?

Low-carb diets tend to improve the cholesterol profile by increasing levels of the “good” HDL cholesterol, and decreasing levels of harmful triglycerides. These are both good changes, associated with improved health.

Regarding the “bad” LDL cholesterol, most people experience no significant changes on low carb. However, some people can lower or (more often) increase LDL levels somewhat. Note that studies show that at least people over 60 years of age tend to live longer with higher LDL levels.

Taken together, studies show that low-carb diets generally improve risk factors for disease, including cholesterol. For a small minority of people however, cholesterol may go up abnormally high on an LCHF diet. In those situations it could be worth adapting the diet to normalize the cholesterol levels.

The bottom line: Low-carb and high-fat diets on average improve the cholesterol profile and reduce most risk factors for disease. The effect of this has been demonstrated in a 2010 study that showed a reduction in atherosclerosis after two years on a low-carb, high-fat diet.
