Dangers of an Ultra Low Fat Diet

Dangers of an Ultra Low Fat Diet

Update: 2020-05-22


In this podcast, we’re going to talk about the dangers of an ultra low-fat diet. 

I’m talking about a low-fat diet where the fats make up only 15% of your total calories. With the diet I recommend, fats make up about 70% of your total calories. 

Why low-fat diets don’t work:

Well, there are a lot of things in fat that we need, such as fat-soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids. Fat is also needed to make structural parts of our tissues—including cell membranes.  

Dangers of an ultra low-fat diet:

1. Decrease in vitamins A, D, E, K

2. Risk of mental problems 

3. Increased risk of cancer

4. Decrease in HDL/increase in triglycerides 

5. Decreased fat—increased carbs 

6. Never satisfied—hungry

7. Low-fat high protein—hard on kidneys
