We’ve all heard of the difference between “good” fats and “bad” fats — but this doesn’t give the full picture.
Back in the ’70s, the world was fed tons of incorrect information, namely that “fat makes us fat,” which led to a mass baulking at the mention of the “f-word,” and a bevy of fat-free foods.
With the evolution of science and the recent surge in biohacking, we’re now aware that fats are not only healthy but, when part of a balanced diet, they’re key to high-performance functioning.
Dave Asprey, the founder of The Bulletproof Executive, advocates for fats to lose their bad rap — and for us to stop seeing fats and calories in black and white.
In this short clip from A-Fest Greece, in an interview with Vishen Lakhiani, Dave explains exactly why fats are crucial to our bodies, how the stigma against fats was ill-founded, and why not all fats or calories are created equal.
