Guess How You can Eat Lots of Fatty Foods and Still Be Healthy

Is it possible to eat lots of fatty foods like red meat and eggs and not put on weight? Well, some doctors are now saying yes, provided that you do something different with your lifestyle.

Scientists from Aberdeen University in Scotland published the results of a study into the matter in Nature Communications. The study was carried out with the British Heart Foundation.

The researchers investigated how different types of fat are used by the body, depending on the individual’s level of physical fitness. In other words, they looked into how much physical activity like regular exercise can offset the negative aspects of eating a lot of fatty foods and they determined that the more you exercise the less fat your body puts on.

So, exercise does not just burn calories, it also affects whether or not your body adds new fat.

And this is something significant for people suffering from type 2 diabetes.

“We discovered that athletes store and utilize saturated fat intensely for high performance physical activity and conversely in people with type 2 diabetes, we observed predominantly storage”, said Professor Dawson, Chair in Cardiovascular Medicine at Aberdeen University.

“We also showed in people with type 2 diabetes that endurance exercise training increased the storage and utilization of saturated fat in their skeletal muscle cells to the extent that they became similar to the deconditioned athletes after 8 weeks of training,” he added.

However, there is no one rule for everyone.

“Overall, the most striking and completely new perspective we have taken from this study is that one size ‘doesn’t fit all’ and that one’s cardio-metabolic health dictates how efficiently you’re able to use different fats as fuel,” said Professor Dawson. “These results are completely novel and highlight how keeping fit and active improves metabolism of saturated fat as a direct benefit of exercise.”

So, if you love your meat and eggs then you should certainly exercise a lot. But don’t overdo it. There are still limits for everything.
