Could someone please explain why it seems most of you eat little to no overt fats? I'm completely on board with keeping my fat intake at or below 10% of my calories, of course. But I'm a bit confused about why everyone seems to try to avoid them completely.
I've been averaging 2,000 cal per day, and could eat (for example) an entire avocado a day and still keep my fat intake at 10% or so.
Do people just feel better without them or something? Or did I miss something in Dr. Graham's book? I thought raw vegan fats (when kept at or under 10% of cals) were healthy/important.
you mean why only over fats?
because they are in the fruit already!
Keep it 10% or below. Apparently, our bodies don't handle fat over 10% very well, particularly animal fat. Evidence is diabetes, obesity, heart, gallbladder and artery disease to name a few.
