Good Fat - Bad Fat!?
Fat makes us fat is not true. One of my first diets was a low fat diet. Low fat diets are no longer in favor. This was many years ago and before I had much weight loss research under my belt. I have since discovered that our brain needs fat and so does our body.
There are two kinds of fat. Yellow fat which stores energy and brown fat which burns energy. According to Dr. James Lyons, author of The Brown Fat Revolution, brown fat is good for you and he says that yellow fat is bad fat.
Dr. Lyons says the if our diet lacks brown fat, our body will replace it with yellow fat...the jiggly fat that we do not want.
