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.

If you’d like to learn more about biohacking your health to reach peak physical state, Dave Asprey is featured in Mindvalley’s premier program for personal transformation, Consciousness Engineering, where he explores how we can shift our understanding of how our bodies work to improve longevity, boost our energy levels, and how we can consistently function at a peak state.
