So why are we so afraid of consuming fats? Because there are 20 years of “fat-shaming” we’re still brain-washed from. You see, from the late ’70s to the late ’90s the world became obsessed with fat-free diets and the belief that not consuming any fats will make us lean and fit… but that’s not how it works! Spoiler alert: we can’t hack the func’ing system! So grab some almonds and let’s talk about what fats really do to our body, what are the good fats we should be consuming more of, and why we just need to get over it and buy the full-fat cheese (from grass-fed cows, obviously).
