How Saturated Fat Ruins Your Cells … And What To Eat Instead

Does saturated fat aid your health and help you heal chronic health conditions or does it harm your body? Your body is made out of trillions of cells and the health of your cells will determine your overall health.

In today’s video I talk about a new, ground-breaking study that has shed more light on saturated fats and their effect on human health.

Saturated Fat: Good Or Bad?

Most of us have heard about diets like the Atkins, Paleo and Keto and these are diets that are well known for focusing on their fat intake, including saturated fat.

Foods that are typically eaten on these kinds of diets and which contain lots of saturated fat include animal products, such as beef, lamb, pork, poultry, fish, lard, cream, butter and cheese.

Plant foods can also contain saturated fat, including oils, nuts and seeds, avocadoes and coconut flesh.

The promotion of diets that contain lots of saturated fat are controversial and the mainstream medical establishment have for a long time told the general public to reduce their saturated fat intake.

For example, the American Heart Association (AHA) says:

“Eating foods that contain saturated fats raises the level of cholesterol in your blood. High levels of LDL cholesterol in your blood increase your risk of heart disease and stroke”. (1) 

There have been many studies that have been carried out over the years which have highlighted how saturated fat can negatively affect our health.

In fact, the AHA says:

“Decades of sound science has proven it can raise your “bad” cholesterol and put you at higher risk for heart disease”.(2)

Very recently, a new study has just come out.

Researchers from The Columbia University in the US used a new microscopy technique that allows for the direct tracking of fatty acids (fats) after they’ve been absorbed into living cells..

Basically they could see the effects on the living cells as the different fats were incorporated into the cell membranes or the cell walls.

Under healthy conditions, the cells in your body should be flexible.

But what they found was when the saturated fat was being incorporated into the cell membranes it caused parts of them to become ‘solid like’.

As more saturated fat entered the live cells, these ‘solid like’ islands grew in size and quote:

Increasing inelasticity of the membrane and gradually damaging the entire cell. (3)

Your body is made up trillions of cells. All together, these tiny powerhouses are responsible for all of the functions and life-supporting processes happening in your body every second of your life.

A state of optimal, balanced health and wellness depends on how healthy your cells are.

In today’s video, I will talk about how saturated fat (even from vegetarian and plant sources) can affect your health and what you can do about it today.

    I ate keto for 1.5 yrs. In that short time I got sicker and sicker, till I was nearly bed ridden. Long list of health issues. Turned around to veggie-n-fruit diet and feeling so much better. Still have a few symptoms to heal but hoping in time the issues will heal.

      Exactly, glad you’re not doing it any longer. Some issues need more than just a veggie and fruit diet and they won’t go otherwise. Feel free to reach out if you want any personal help:

    Great explanation but I cant understand why I then feel way better with coconut yoghurt included in my diet, it doesnt make sense to me, my brain work better with this kind of fat and I just feel healthier….so I have hard to believe that it can be bad for me, don’t think so…

      I dont believe it means we should have zero saturated fat in our diets and this would be impossible any way. I think it just shows us that eating saturated fat in excess could most likely have serious implications for our health. We ourselves are happy to eat some coconut flesh in moderation.

    What is the ‘moderation’ level in fat’s you can consume in a day? I eat tablespoon tahini, seeds (sometimes half a cup), almond milk (no more than a cup), a little dry coconut(about 1-2 tablespoons) everyday but not sure if I am having too much. I want to lose a little tummy fat. I have been vegan for years, and eat more raw these days, which includes bowl of salad for lunch.
