Why Fats Don't Make You Fat Cover

Why Good Fats Aren’t The Problem

Check out this great info-graphic created by Column Five for Massive Health, based on “Why We Get Fat” by science writer Gary Taubes. It explains why our high carb (high sugar) diet is creating such problems for our health, and not as widely assumed, diets high in quality saturated fat.

Basically, carbs like fructose and other sugars, destroy your insulin sensitivity, which in turn cause your cells to accumulate more fat. This in turn also makes it more difficult to get rid of those extra pounds.
