Recent reports have accused UK public health bodies of giving out the wrong information and demand an overhaul of dietary guidelines. educogym Canary Wharf explain that high fat diets are not dangerous, and can in fact be very good for you.
The UK has a huge issue with obesity, 25% of the UK population are currently obese and the figure is set to double. The guidelines of eating low fat diets to help lower their cholesterol is having disastrous consequences. Godfrey Nurse from educogym Canary Wharf explains why “when you remove fat from a product, whether it is a biscuit or yoghurt, it has to be replaced with something else, this is normally sugar. Low fat yoghurts are mostly filled with sugar or sugar substitutes, to replace the fat that has been removed, there are of course exceptions, and low fat does work for many people as it reduces a food group and so helps with weight loss, but the real effective results do not come from low fat, as many products are marked as ‘low fat’ or ‘lite’ when they are in fact full of sugar”.
The National Obesity Forum and Public Health Collaboration have called for a ‘major overhaul’ of dietary guidelines, they say that major public health bodies are colluding with the food industry, and that the advertisement of low fat diets is not helping the UK’s obesity crisis, and the excessive snacking is making people fat. “at educogym Canary Wharf, we have very specific and tailored nutrition, it is proven, under university studies, to be the most effective way of losing fat, and what is the secret? High fat! We tailor a high fat diet to our clients needs, many of which have issues with cholesterol amongst other things, and what we found is that our high fat nutrition has actually helped lower our clients cholesterol. It is quite simply about cutting out sugar and carbs and eating plenty of good fats, this gets you into what is called ketosis, which means your body burns its own fat for fuel rather than living off carbs and sugar, it is also great for stabilising sugar levels and so is also fantastic for those with diabetes” explained Orlstyne Wilson, personal trainer at educogym Canary Wharf.
The reports are now suggesting that a return for whole foods, such as meat, fish, dairy and high fats is much needed, as eating fat does not make you fat. It has also been argued by scientists that saturated fat does not cause heart disease, and that full fat dairy can actually protect your heart. “As discussed on the report, I diet similar to the nutrition we offer at Educogym Canary Wharf is ideal for fat loss, it is also great for managing diabetes, looking after your heart and in general good for your health, natural foods like eggs, avocado, nuts, olives and seeds are all full of saturated fats, these are great for you and should be a big part of a healthy diet, and should not be demonised because the past has made us scared of fats” said Godfrey Nurse, personal trainer at Educogym Canary Wharf.
Very simply, fat is your friend, fats should be a part of a balanced, wholesome healthy diet.
