This is not medical advice I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.

People in the U.S. have dramatically reduced their intake of cholesterol and fat. Since then cardiovascular disease, obesity and chronic illness has climbed almost 5 times what it was before the diet change. People need to ask why? Shouldn’t people be healthier by following the government guidelines. As usual you will find the government is wrong again as they often times are.
Sorry I did not summarize this like I have with other post but I am getting tired and I have no source of income and need to try to focus on finding a way to make some money with my limited resources. I am trying to get as many of my notes online as I can but I need to focus on making some money very soon. to summarize this would take me about 40 hours to provide links with notes by the links take me about 18 hours.
If we have fat metabolism issues or dis-regulation it can cause chronic illness. Fat protects us from inflammation, infection and is very important in healing.
Symptoms of fat absorption issues or fat deficiency is sugar and carbohydrate cravings, poor digestion and constipation, fatigue, low hormone levels, dry skin and eyes, intestinal inflammation which will inhibit nutrient absorption, weight gain because polyunsaturated fats are needed to break down fats. Joint pain, vision problems, and depression or poor concentration because the brain is mostly fat. Vitamin deficiency can cause a loss in the ability of the body to use fats. This can be caused by a loss of the microbes in our guts that produce the B12 for us, or from malabsorption. Until I got my gut healed I had to use the type of B12 you put under your tongue so I could absorb B12 better.
How inflammation causes obesity.
Another important nutrient for digesting fats is water. If you are dehydrated frequently in you will become ill and obese.
Your gut microbiome tell you what to eat.
It is a myth that saturated fats are bad for a healthy person. Only when you are ill do they cause problems.
Another myth is that if you eat less you will lose weight.
Eggs are a good food to eat in order to lose weight.
If you want a more in depth article about fats these articles explain them and their benefits and proportions we should eat.
Here is a good list of what fats are good to eat and what ones should be avoided.
Why we should get fats from natural sources.
There are many industries that get people on a hamster wheel of fear. There is no money in solving a problem but if you keep giving people false hope and they do not do their research and search for the truth they end up on a hamster wheel of false hope getting no where. They will jump from one hamster wheel to the next having their ignorance of things taken advantage of. If you want off the hamster wheels of fear and ignorance learn the truth in matters you are not going to get the truth from the industries who profit from ghost written or fake research papers. There is no money in solving a problem. I watch these people go on fad diets and pay for supplements they will lose weight temporarily but those diets cause the body to go into starvation mode, when they do consume food it will start storing fat so that when it is starving again it will have the reserves it needs the next times starvation occurs. Starvation and fat deprivation are different then fasting. Fasting has many benefits if done correctly under guidance of and experienced naturopath.
They push yogurt as a weight loss food but many have strains of microbes in them that cause obesity. They promote diet soda as a way to lose weight and they actually cause weight gain. Low fat foods actually cause weight gain because the body needs fats to process nutrients propertly.
How our gut microbiome can help us lose weight.
you inherit your microbiota from your family. They modulate the genes to determine if you will be obese or not. It is not genetics.
Reishi mushroom increases the fat reducing microbiome.
This link explains the falsehood of many myths about losing weight.
High triglyceride levels can indicate excess oxidative stress. It is not caused by excess fat or cholesterol consumption. It is a symptom not the cause. This is why lowering cholesterol and fat intake does not lower the bodies fat and cholesterol content. Also gut imbalance cause by farm chemicals in our food and antibiotics can cause lipid imbalance leading to high triglyceride levels.
Now Omega 6s when under oxidative stress cause inflammation. I have posted on addressing oxidative stress it is very important to address it.
If you want to learn the truth about fats this doctor has put together some very accurate articles about fat.
If a person is deficient in choline they will experience headaches and may get indigestion when they consume fats. There are also metabolic issues that can prevent the body from properly metabolizing choline that can cause those symptoms when we consume choline.
There is a myth about fat making you fat. There is fat that causes obesity one is man made trans-fat which also causes cardiovascular disease. Inflammation an imbalance or deficiency in our microbiome and metabolic issues can lead to obesity. Fat and carbohydrates do not cause obesity. Neither does laziness I know many obese workers who were very hard workers and I knew many skinny people who sat around doing nothing all day. I mainly want to focus on fats this is a good article on how our gut microbes effect our weight. It is processed carbohydrates that cause health problems and most likely from the things they add to them. The food industry is allowed to add toxins to the food to preserve it and enhance it’s color. They also contain GMOs and the body reacts to BT Toxins found in GMOs the same way it would react if you got food poisoning. Also most of the processed foods are high in glyphosate and glufonisate which have been linked to many types of chronic illness. Another problem with modern diets is the intake of Omega 3 oils and Omega 6 oils is out of balance. Our intake of Omega 3 should be higher then our intake of Omega 6. When they are in balance Omega 6 reduces inflammation. When Omega 6 levels get higher then Omega 3 levels then Omega 6 will cause inflammation. They claim high fat diets and high cholesterol diets cause raised blood cholesterol levels but this has never been proven scientifically and the opposite has been found to be true. Processed carbohydrates have been found to cause weight gain.
Now combine trans-fat with aspartame which is known to cause obesity and diabetes and you are asking for trouble.
Natural trans-fat that is not hydrogenated and found in animal products are actually good for our health.
Berberine found in things like bayberries decreases the gut bacteria that causes obesity and increases the bacteria that promote health.
Lipid dis-regulation is endothelial dysfunction which can be caused by vaccinations or toxins which causes autoimmunity. Especially those found in GMO foods. Even statins have been known to cause it and cognitive dysfunction. This is why statins have been linked to higher mortality from cardiovascular disease. Autoimmunity can lead to hair loss from dis-regulated lipid metabolism. GMOs and glyphosate used on them causes leaky gut which leads to autoimmune disease. If a person develops issues with lipid metabolism it can cause sterol precursors to build up which inhibit cellular and even mitochondrial function. This causes a sensitivity to sterols including plant sterols.
Glyphosate is a double whammy because it causes gut dysbiosis and leaky gut which has been linked to lipid dis-regultion. It also inhibits Cytochrome P450 enzymes which causes lipid dis-regulation. Our gut bacteria dramatically effect our health and an imbalance leads to chronic illness.
Berberine also helps reduce fatty liver disease.
Inflammation causes cardiovascular disease and guess what causes inflammation, sugar, trans-fats and hydrogenated vegetable oils.
Transfats like that found in margerine and hydrogenated vegetable oils have been linked to obesity and cardiovascular disease. This was proven shortly after their introduction to the market and yet they still promote them as good for your health. Reducing fat intake does not reduce the risk of heart disease but changing the types of fats we take in does. Reducing consumption of tran-fats and consumption of hydrogenated oil reduces our risk of cardiovascular disease.
Processed sugar is more of a worry it can make men become feminine. Also eating bad fats like those from GMO fed animals can make a man feminine. Fat from grass fed animals do not have those effects. Sugar causes cardiovascular disease and the sugar industry paid a lot of money to hide that fact.
Not only that but because GMO are lower in nutritional value a person has to consume more the high food intake results in obesity.
Most beef in the U.S. is contaminated with BT Toxins and glyphosate which we consume and then end up with it in our blood streams because grains used to feed them are GMO. Grass fed beef has been shown to be better for our health. This holds true for most animals products those from grass fed actually promote health. What the animal eats is what determines their effects on our health when we consume them.
They are still stuck on the high cholesterol causes heart disease hamster wheel but if you read my blog post on cholesterol and statins you will see those with high cholesterol live longer. This myth got started from a flawed study produced in the 1950’s and had been discredited but the media ran with it and it become accepted as a valid scientific paper even though it was plagued with flaws. The results of that are that the diet in the U.S. changed. People consume for less cholesterol and fat in their diets. This has resulted in something like 5 times the obesity rate and cardiovascular disease. Studies still try to prove that cholesterol levels are linked to heart disease but when you read the studies you can see they have not proven they are linked to heart disease but to prevent attacks from the pharmaceutical industry or even the medical industry who makes millions from this deception they will and comments that are biased even though their studies show there is no link between high cholesterol and heart disease. Almost every cell in our bodies need cholesterol , our heart and brain cannot function without it. It is why statins have been linked to increased cardiovascular disease and mental decline. They deprive the heart, muscles and brain of cholesterol.
Even our government admits that increased cholesterol consumption is not linked to cardiovascular disease and so has many research papers.
It has been proven many times that fat consumption is not what determines whether we are obese or not. Eating fat actually causes weight loss because it increases satiety meaning we will eat less.
Antibiotics and glyphosate along with other farm chemicals can cause leaky gut and gut dysbiosis. This can lead to malabsorption issues. Vaccination increase B cell levels which can cause the same health problems. We need fat to absorb fat soluble vitamins so no matter how much we eat we will not absorb nutrients. When this happens we should switch to using short chain fatty acids because our bodies can readily use them without having to break them down. This causes bile production to become inhibited adding further to the malabsorption because inhibited bile flow also decreases the pancreatic release of digestive enzymes. If we do not eat enough fat we cannot produce bile and it will lead to chronic illness and can result in inflammatory bowel disease.
List of fat soluble vitamins.
Higher fat intake lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease.
High fat diets prevent our skin from aging.
I have posted on things that can inhibit bile like gut dysbiosis, leaky gut, fat deficiency or pyrrole issues which prevent the body from being able to use fats properly. Issues with the citric acid cycle can also inhibit bile production. If that happens it can cause the bladder to develop infection and will have to be removed. Instead of letting it get to that point address the problems because the bladder is very important for proper health. A person can become deficient in lipase and will not be able to break down fats. If you have had it removed this is a site that has information on how to deal with it. To increase lipase production drink water from volcanic sources. Eat carbohydrates. Exercise increases lipase levels.
Symptoms of lipase deficiency are gallbladder problems, interstitial cystitis, arthritis, heart palpitations, deposits of lipid build up under the skin, allergies and food intolerances, spastic colon, high TH17 levels which causes skin rashes.
How to increase lipase.
Low Sirt levels can cause obesity or inflammatory bowel disease. Leptin resistance causes obesity increasing Sirt will increase leptin sensitivity.
Issues with sulfation , high sulfur digesting bacteria levels in the gut or sulfur deficiency can cause obesity. Glyphosate, fluoroquinolone antibiotics and mercury still found in some vaccines are the number causes of sulfation issues.
Another cause of obesity is hormone imbalance which can be caused by the toxins found in processed foods, farm chemicals which have been found to be high in our food supply and toxins in the containers used to store our food in. Also metabolic issues caused by inflammation, leaky gut or gut dysbiosis can lead to hormone imbalance.
Catalase is known as the longevity enzyme. It protects the cells from damage caused by oxidative stress and toxins. Consuming fat increases catalase. Higher the fat consumption the lower the mortality rate.
Those with autoimmune diseases especially interstitial cystitis need fats to reduce the high ceramide levels.
Before correcting metabolic issues, inflammatory problems or gut issues that may be causing obesity a person should detox and continue to detox as they lose weight because fat stores toxins to protect the body.
The fats that benefit health the most are polyunsaturated fats, monounsaturated fats, medium chain fatty acids are also very important for good health.
Now if you read this research paper fat activates Sirt1 which is known as the antiaging gene. So fat reverses againg. Since the research showing fat causes obesity is full of flaws and missing data then you have to look to find the data and why they left it out. There studies are conditionally biased they do not want people to know how to get healthy. A healthy patient is not a patient so the medical and pharmaceutical industry both lose money. They have no incentive to get people healthy and it is why they only research and treat the symptoms because treating the cause creates a lost customer.
Olive oil Is high in a variety of fats that promote health.
Omega 9 which is rarely mentioned has many health benefits. This article also list source of Omega 3. It is well worth reading. It mentions soybean oil and cotton seed oil. Most are GMO now and toxic. Unless you can find organic I would stay away from those.
The fats found in butter and ghee have amazing health benefits.
Flax seed oil and consuming fish that are high in fat improves the quality of life in those with MS. So does consuming fruit.
The endocanabinoid system is dependent on fats and if we do not get enough it cannot function.
I do not know anyone who had tried this but based on research I have read it should help with the many issues caused by inflammatory bowel and malabsorption if not taken in doses over 200mg.
People need to stop worrying about being fat and focus on being healthy. This woman states it best in the article she has written.
Fasting shuts down the production of fats and cholesterol. This should be done correctly and should be research before trying this and those with type 1 diabetes can cause ketoacidosis if they try fasting.
A safer alternative for those with type 1 diabetes may be a high fat ketogenic diet.
Leptin resistance causes obesity and cardiovascular disease so should be addressed.
Those who lose weight too quickly will cause very low leptin levels which will impact their health. In order to recover they will need to increase their leptin levels.
Ursolic acid found in apple skins, prunes, rosemary, basil, peppermint, thyme, oregano, hawthorn and bilberries helps correct metabolic issues and reduce fatty liver disease. It increases skeletal muscle and the healthy brown fat in our bodies.
Bile acid is very important in the regulation of fats in our body.
Statins cause alzheimers for the same reason low fat diets do. The brain is made mostly of fat. I cannot believe people have not figured out since fat and cholesterol has been dramatically reduced in the diet in the U.S. obesity, cardiovascular disease and chronic illness has taken a dramatic climb. Where did the myth they cause obesity and cardiovascular disease come from. I have only seen a couple studies and they read more like advertisements for the pharmaceutical industry. They were plagued with conditional bias and opinion which does not belong in research only the facts matter.
Inflammation causes heart disease not cholesterol.
If you are deficient in fat you cannot fight infection.
Bitter melon enhances lipid metabolism and reduces estrogen.
Lactobacillus Reuteri increases oxytocin which reduces weight gain from menopause.
