Ever heard of Lipemia?
Lipemia is the measure of fat in the blood. As you can see from the above photo, you can literally see the fat in your blood after eating. The fat from this example originated from oils, meat (fish is considered meat) and dairy. The fat doesn't just settle on your belly or butt, it affects your blood and your heart and has an immediate impact.
Please take note! Olive oil is not a health food. It's full of fat. If you are going to use it, please do so sparingly.
Don't fret! There are healthier sources of fat which your body does need in small increments. Avocado, nuts & seeds do contain fat but they also contain healthy omega 3 fatty acids and other essential vitamins and minerals. However, eat these in moderation as well. Fat is fat!
