Why it's Time to Make Fat Your Friend Lifesum

More cheese please!

I love me some cheese. I love olive oil. I love butter. And yet, these are all things old-time dieting wisdom would have told me to avoid.

That’s changing now.

A study conducted by researchers from Harvard revealed that low-carb diets were actually better at helping people lose weight than low-fat diets.

Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean you need to cut out the carbs, but it means reducing carbs rather than reducing fat is more effective if you’re trying to lose weight.

This might just be the best news ever. Think about it. There’s no need to cut out oil, you can still eat cheese, fill up on avocado and nuts, you can eat the yolk in your egg, milk and cream ARE ON THE MENU.

Why not give it a try? Check out Lifesum’s ketogenic plans and recipes for some inspiration.
