Take a Second Look at Fat

Keeping our daily saturated FAT intake below 20g (women) and 30g (men) is vital for cholesterol lowering, but it is equally important to replace this saturated fat with modest amounts of unsaturated fats. Enjoy consistent amounts of high-quality coconut oil and unrefined vegetable oils with proteins, grain-like seeds, and starchy, non-starchy, and ocean vegetables.

Also, remember that excessive amounts of fats DELAY the secretion of gastric juices that digest animal proteins. Digestion of fats is greatly enhanced when they are eaten with cultured vegetables, leafy green salads, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice.
