What you’ve heard about fat is a stack of lies

Whether you follow a high-fat or low-fat diet  you still need a balanced combination of monounsaturated, polyunsaturated and saturated fats, in context of  your carbohydrate intake, to look, feel and perform at your best,  says John Berardi

Dr John Berardi is a nutrition and exercise coach, sport scientist, author, and a founder of Precision Nutrition. He is based in Toronto, Canada.

Follow the one-third rule
Whether you are on a high-fat, low-carb, or low-fat and high-carb diet, a good starting point for your daily fat intake is to get about a third from  monounsaturated sources, a third from polyunsaturated sources, and a third from saturated sources.

Sat fats in moderation
There’s a lot of talk right now about how good saturated fats are after decades of it being demonised by governments and health organisations, but now we know better there is the danger the pendulum has swung too far in favour of them.

It’s all about context
Fats can never be labelled as either inherently good or bad because your intake needs to be considered within the context of your diet. If you eat a lot of fats and your carbs are high then that’s not going to have a positive body-composition outcome.
