Hope you enjoy these short video clips about fat that come from Tom Naughton's "Fat Head" movie. Without going into too much detail here, I will say upfront that I do not follow a low-fat diet. I did that for 25 plus years, and became obese. At some point in the future, I plan to chronicle the things that led up to my obesity and the health issues of some family members, too. In the meantime, let me just say that I do eat lean meats, but I no longer eat low fat products that are on the market. I try to focus on eating whole types of foods in their regular form, which includes high fat and lean foods alike.

My take on the real research I have read over the past seven years is that fat won't make me fat. Saturated fat isn't as dangerous as the media and medical professionals would have you believe, either.

Why You Got Fat

Big Fat Lies


  1. Yikes, I'm afraid I have greedy fat cells.

  2. I have greedy fat cells and a wicked love for cheeseburgers. Probably not the best combination.

  3. Fat doesn't make fat. I think they need to change the term for one or the other, either the fat we eat or how fat we get, because they're not the same thing.

  4. Got to take everything in moderation. What they don't tell you is that if it's low in fat it's high in sugar/salt. Low in sugar it's high in fat/salt etc. A good balanced diet works best any day, unless you eat too much like me.
