6 Types of Body Fat and How to Get Rid of It

Video taken from the channel: BRIGHT SIDE


When it comes to health, not all fats are equal. This article looks at the sources and types of fat, their effects on the body, and how much to add to the diet. There are two main types of unsaturated fats; monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. Polyunsaturated fats can be divided into two groups, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

These fats are important for brain function, heart health and reducing inflammation. More important than total fat is the type of fat you eat. There are “healthy fats” and “unhealthy fats.” For most people, eating this is about 20 grams of saturated fat per day. That is not much when you consider just one ounce of cheese can have 8 grams of saturated fat. Many adults, especially women or sedentary men, may need less.

There are two main types of potentially harmful dietary fats: Saturated fat. This type of fat comes mainly from animal sources of food, such as red meat, poultry and full-fat dairy products. One study estimated that replacing trans fat with other fats could reduce heart disease risk by up to 40%, depending on the type and amount of fat substituted. Trans fats are often found in. Fat takes longer to digest than other foods, and the amount of time varies based on the type of fat.

Dietary fats consist of: Dietary fats consist of: saturated fat. But what type of fat. When extracting THC for use in cooking, both stoner lore and hard science tell us that fats make the best mediums for potent infusions. But what type of fat. A typical diet is made up of different types of fat.

While you need to make sure you eat foods that contain healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, too much saturated fat can increase the amount of cholesterol in your blood, which can increase your risk of developing coronary heart disease. The American Heart Association recommends aiming for a dietary pattern that achieves 5% to 6% of calories from saturated fat. For example, if you need about 2,000 calories a day, no more than 120 of them should come from saturated fat. That’s about 13 grams of.

Dietary trans fatty acids also tend to raise the so-called bad fats (low-density lipoproteins, LDLs) and lower the so-called good fats (high-density lipoproteins, HDLs) when consumed instead of cis fatty acids.

Limit your intake of saturated fat to <7% of energy, trans-fat to <1% of energy, and cholesterol to <300 mg per day by: choosing lean meats and vegetable alternatives; selecting fat-free (skim), 1%-fat, and low-fat dairy products; and minimizing intake of partially hydrogenated fats.

  • These exercises are great but not once have you incorporated wheelchair uses in these….. Believe it or not, disabled people want to get fit too. They can’t get up after 30mins to cross the office…. I will say that in they’re exclusion this video is borderline discriminative.

  • I’ve now removed all vegetable oils from our household apart from olive and coconut. I try and keep olive oil consumption as low as possible as there’s still some controversy about the inflammatory aspect of consuming any oils at all. Luckily I have a whole food supplier in the UK where I buy huge bags of mixed organic omega 3 seeds (hemp, chia, flax etc) and avocado’s are more readily available than banana’s now! I would love to eat more wild salmon but it’s very expensive here (I think most of it comes from the Pacific/Alaska so mileage is high to Europe. Luckily we’re surrounded by mackerel most of the year!

  • The body typing concept makes the best sense. We too, have developed a system of body typing and can provide dietary ad supplement outlines for each of them. The one he labels the sugar types would more accurately be called the carbohydrate intolerant and most often stems from an over production of insulin in response to carbohydrate ingestion. One of the primary functions of insulin is to remove glucose from the blood and store it in the form of triglycerides, in the fat cells. This process has no stoppage gap and most often accounts for those who are a hundred pounds or more over weight. We have designed a special program for these individuals who on average, account for 60 % or more of all obese individuals.

  • Yea, you know what this comment is gonna be referencing. I don’t even need to say it. It starts with an M and ends with a EGGY’S NEW VOICE IS AWESOME!

  • Thank you for the valuable info. Just wanted to give a simple tip regarding the infographic and images that pop up to the right of the screen while you were talking. They look like ads. And I think that’s because your in the middle of the shot. If you were occupying one half of the screen, while all the graphics popped up in the other half, they would be more noticeable.

    Sorry for giving myself permission to criticise your video:)

  • I am around 12%, and I still look pretty good. Some people think you have to have a super-low bodyfat percentage to look great, but often it can make them look worse.

  • I stopped drinking soda and carbonated drinks for almost 3 years now. and I had green tea every morning and during the day my entire life. but still not satisfied with my body shape and weight.

  • Thank you for this helpful and informative video! I’m so glad there are actually “healthy” fats, and all the foods you mentioned look great to eat. But I’ve always been worried about cholesterol levels do these healthy fats still raise the bad LDL cholesterol levels?

  • I do sleep more than when I was younger. I have been reading everything to loose weight. What is not addressed is when a woman’s estrogen drops and how to counter act that. After having cancer twice and beating it, diabetes, which is not fun, gasteroporis, not sure on spelling, it is a challenge with what to eat,what I can’t eat but am doing my best

  • I’m not surprised that u have problems with weight, you r still eating eggs, cow’s and carcasses. U want have these problems with whole food plant based.

  • Hi person scrolling through the comments, I need your help for a bit… I know some people think that I am really dumb, but I don’t know if you compare the body fat pictures when you relax or flex. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

  • Much of this information is 20 years out of date. If you want to lose weight reduce carbs and think about fasting. Read up about autophagy and keto diets.

  • Well presented. Very good information. I check my body fat using an Omron fat monitor. One question I have for you is:
    Does the body fat you refer to is only the subcutaneous fat? Or Subcutaneous fat + Visceral fat. (Omron fat monitors give visceral fat aa levels, and not as %)

  • i’m actually maintaining a good bmi…but i will definitely follow your suggestions to maintain this for my whole life. thanks for your wonderful health tips.

  • I eat a lot of healthy fat! Maybe like 50%. Almonds, avocado, eggs, cashews, but I’m still in a caloric deficit. Can eating a lot of healthy fats make me fat?

  • I understand a lot more now about BMI and how it’s going to vary between people. I’m over 35, fairly lean and come out at exactly 20 BMI. Really I’d like to put a bit more weight on but my metabolism seems to be very fast and have been the same weight for years.

  • Thanks for your valuable information doctor, but as you said vegetable oils are not good so what is your say on a healthy cooking oil?

  • Dr Oz show ripped off this info from A very good doctor call Dr berg check out his YouTube channel it shits on the Dr Oz Show with great info to a healthier life

  • Thanks for explaining the science behind fats. I always learn so much from your videos. I’m definitely going to start eating all the healhty fats you’ve listed in your video. Thanks!

  • I thought all fat was bad, I didn’t know there was such a thing as healthy fat! I’m definitely going to start adding things like fish and nuts to my diet. Thanks for the great breakdown.

  • Is it reasonably accurate to assume that with a higher body fat percentage (I’m in the high 20’s) that you don’t need to pay too much attention to being in a calorie surplus to build muscle? I’m definitely enjoying noobie gains right now, but I’m also definitely losing fat AND building muscle at the same time. It’s very visible that both are happening. I’d like to keep my caloric intake as low as possible without going too far, but I also don’t want to lose the new muscle either by restricting my diet too much.

  • Excellent info! Healthy fats are so important for testosterone production and just overall health. I try to include eggs, olive oil, and fish oil everyday to my diet to keep my testosterone levels up.

  • I’ve been wondering about these kinds of fat, some say fatty foods are bad, some say its good and recently there is this keto thing. This video explains a lot, know I know which ones to avoid. thank you!

  • Ok, had me a little scared there with the ominous music for the intro! This has been enlightening though. I’ve been under the assumption I was to avoid fats, but I’ll stop feeling guilty about my nuts and seeds!:) On the other hand I never actually considered my fish oil to be a fat! I always learn so much on your videos!

  • What is my body types please.
    The area around the shoulders89 cm
    The area around my chest 83 cm
    The area around my waist 59cm
    Buttocks perimeter 87cm… please help me

  • I was always confused about the type and variety of fats, thank you for separating good/bad fats in a clear and concise way, and explaining the place of fats in a variety of diets.

  • The irony is that SMG3 was the hero of the first arc, and is was the villain in the most recent.
    Moral of the story, don’t cancel the show of a former psychopath

  • If you are 86kg at 5’11 with a very low body fat percentage…you are basically a rugby athlete or you are on the verge of competing…

    Another 15kg of weight on my body with a low body fat percentage…I would be huge…literally huge.

  • The diet soda thing is not true. They have no calories. Laws of thermodynamics applies. Also before anyone tries to debate this, since the beginning of summer I started drinking Diet Coke and have lost 23 pounds. It’s all about calories in and calories out. You have to be in a deficit.

  • Absolutely fantastic video I really love all your content, your videos are so informative I’m glad I found your channel. Thank you so much

  • I feel like this was too short, but still, even in quarentine both, you were capable of making such good arc, that everyone loves, your animating abilities are like no other, the graffics, the voice acting, animating, everything, how can people not like this? Nobody would hate on a person that has done nothing either a scratch on them, unless they were a jack ass for shure, but anyways, I thank you for giving me a purpose, a reason to live.

    Thank you, SMG4.

  • Oz has stolen the whole study from Dr Eric Berg…What a SHAME! Check on Dr. Berg YouTube to know the original study and even the best-selling book he wrote about the subject!

  • THIS HAS TO BE THE BEST WOTFI EVER BY FAR!!!!!!!!!! ��✨⚡️��4️⃣��4️⃣��⚡️✨�� AND THAT RAP THO!!!!!!!!��������������������‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️��������������������������

  • Not to cast doubt over the chart’s accuracy, but I don’t see why we should consider it ideal for guys over 40 to be carrying over 20% of his body-weight in fat, whilst it is somewhat less than ideal for a guy in his early 20s to carry anything over 14.3%.
    I’m fairly confident that a 20 year old with over 20% body-fat is way healthier than any guy over 40 with the same body-fat.

  • Really enjoyed the science background to fats maybe a little more could have been said about trans fats. I absolutely adore oily fish and need no excuse to eat sardines and mackerel! Look forward to your next video.

  • I the challenges were Great and absolutly spot on this year my favorite being and I think meggy is the character who went through the most changes

  • fraud / noun:
    wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain.
    Dr. Oz stole this body type information from Dr. Eric BERG.
    LOL….. the diet information Dr. Oz recommends is inaccurate.

  • This is all BS.
    Some people suffer from anxiety and depression and struggle to do most of these things. Not to mention some people also struggle trying to eat healthy its not something you can do with the click of your fingers ��

  • Rip off “Doctor” Oz took this info from genius Dr. Berg. Shame on you Oz. You owe Dr. Berg an apology and $$$. SHAME and couldn’t even deliver the message properly. You should have allowed Dr. Berg to present this vital info.

  • At the end of the day, the issue is controlling insulin production. Chronic stress can definitely play a role in this because chronically elevated cortisol levels can raise insulin production. So getting quality sleep is very important. But perhaps even more importantly is nutrition. That may be the most important. The big four to handle are stress, sleep, nutrition, exercise.

  • Dr. fraudz…pfff Dr. Eric Berg was responsible for the information that Dr. Fraudz used and twisted giving people a false prescription for losing weight. Shame on this huckster.

  • The only way to lose weight is to be in a caloric deficit, doesnt matter how much exercise you do or what you actually eat as long as its in a deficit

  • All I have to say is… Not saying your wrong in any way… And as you probably know… Everyone needs a different diet… Need to look at what your body does with fats… If it stores it in the bloodstream that is not good… Other sources of energy… But yes… Lots of energy in carbohydrates… But will not go through your bloodstream as fat… Salt… High blood pressure… Bloodstream stores salts… Body type… Be content with your body… In fact love it… Bloodstream bloodstream bloodstream… High fibre to fill stomach… Good for cleaning the intestines… Vegables high in vitamins… Fibre… When you say slowly eat less stomachs will get smaller… Acts like an elastic band… But vegetables to fill but not over fill… Etc etc etc…

  • Really detailed information and explained very well, amazing how much difference to your body it makes just by reducing it by like 10%!

  • Doctor OZ used Dr. Eric BERGS information and put a fake doctor on to use Eric BERGS information!
    DOCTOR OZ shame on you!! I won’t ever view or listen to you again!!

  • See, I’m actually underweight and want to gain to be healthy but the minute I put on a pound I immediately develop I gigantic beer gut. I’d do anything to be an estrogen type, girls with big bums are hot as fuck

  • Dr Oz didn’t come up with this. Dr. Eric Berg did!! Ovary, Adrenal, Thyroid, and Liver Body Types! I can’t see Dr. Oz the same way anymore! Jerk!

  • Very useful and informative review about healthy fats. I have learned a lot about healthy fat. Thanks to Dr. Balduzzi for clear explanation.

  • I have long legs thigh gap wide hips small waist heart shape butt boulder shoulders I love my face and I think I’m a very healthy skinny so I’m lucky I get complimented on my skinny jeans because my legs and butt look fine! and I never get fat

  • Just watched a video from Dr. Berg. Dr. Oz straight out stole the body types from Dr. Berg! Dr. Berg is the only expert I can rely on for honest real information, not some dupe with a TV Show. Shame on you Dr. Oz! Have you no ethics or morals? I’m calling you out and exposing you and the network for what you did to Dr. Berg. Shame on you!

  • Dr Oz is a fraud he stole this from Dr Berg the originator of the “body type” if you want to know the real info on it go to Dr Berg.

  • This is actually Dr. Eric Burg’s sources and material. This is absolutely immoral, illegal and called plagiarism. This is not fair and they should be sued for coping other people’s material without their consent.

  • Avoid seed oils like canola, corn and soy oils.
    Eat olive oil, coconut oil, ghee or butter in moderation and don’t be afraid of their saturated fat. (Their role in heart disease has been disproven)
    And try to get some omega 3’s in your diet from sources like Wild salmon, mackerel and sardines, as well as flax seeds and walnuts.

  • My diet consists of full-fat raw milk, raw milk cheese, cultured sour cream, raw milk kefir, organic lard, organic rendered duck fat, bone broth, grass-fed butter, pasture raised eggs and sourdough. All of these foods are anti-inflammatory, heal the gut, and build up the immune system.

  • Where have I heard this before? Since 2011?? Oh yeah Dr. Berg. Thanks for the old stolen information Dr. Oz. But I’ll take my health information straight from the source: DR. BERG.

  • You shouldn’t look at food in terms of carbs protein and fat. Look at it in terms of FIBER, protein and fat. If the carbs you’re eating contain little to no fiber then you shouldn’t be eating those carbs. If your carbs contain 2g of fiber or more then those carbs are probably very good for you. Fiber is just as important to your body as protein. Insoluble fiber helps you digest food. Soluble fiber helps regulate blood sugar and insulin and will help you from developing type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. You NEED carbs and protein. Any diet that would have you drastically lower your intake of good carbs is NOT a credible diet and can cause harmful effects to your body. Same goes for low protein diets. Your body needs both in order to function optimally.

    Also, fat does not make you fat. Good fats that come from nuts, seeds or fatty plant foods are critical to your body’s ability to make stress managing hormones and helps your brain function. Any diet that tells you not to eat whole food plant based fats is not a diet you should follow.

  • Thanks for making a very easy to understand video! I like the great description of the types of fats and the foods that supply the good fat.

  • eat for your blood type, get off the couch and MOVE like your ancestors did, shun processed and GMO foods, and do NOT drink soda, drink clean water, not found in a bottle, you will not have issues.

  • Dr. Oz you are a piece of shit thief. You conned Dr. Berg out of giving you information with the promise of being on your show. Then you cancelled last minute, changed the narrative to avoid Berg’s proven solutions, and pointed people in the direction of failure so they end up relying on big pharma. You’re disgusting.

  • Winner of a video, I been tryin to find out about “healthy high fat foods list” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Meyaanit Fatty Escapeify (should be on google have a look )? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my work buddy got great success with it.

  • Is it unhealthy to have a low body fat %age when you are older? I am now 63 and I was getting my body fat %age to 15%. That is my goal and I am almost there. Is that not healthy?

  • Saturated fats DO NOT increase your chances of cardiovascular diseases

    https://bjsm.bmj.com/content/51/15/1111

    https://www.dairynutrition.ca/scientific-evidence/experts-summaries/new-evidence-reveals-that-saturated-fat-does-not-increase-the-risk-of-cardiovascular-disease. This stuff is old science and misinformation

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5475232/

  • On page 23 there is a fantastic nutrition trick that will tell your body that you’re not starving and keep your metabolic rate sky high. Now this is going to shock you yeah there’s a type of actual saturated fat yeah you know the kind the media tells you is all bad no this saturated fat is healthy and even supports fat burning metabolism.

  • You might be shocked to know that food companies although they have to label foods that contain trans fats are allowed to add up to half a gram per serving and still call it zero on the label. Look for words hydrogenated partially hydrogenated or shortening.

  • Not gonna lie, I was screaming through my pillow when I heard Meggy voice. Reason I scream through my pillow because I didn’t want my family think I’m in danger or something like that

  • I’m a very skinny boy…my body fat percentage is 5% and on my hand and leg day by day veins are becoming more visible…I want to increase my body fat percentage…and hide those pop up veins…please provide solution if possible…My body weight is 43 kg. height is 5.6 foot/inch.

  • Is it healthy for a 12 year old to have a 12% body fat percentage? I’m really skinny, but do plenty of exercise. I’m able to lift 12 reps of 20 lbs max, but usually just do 3 sets of 12 reps with 15 lbs.

  • Very useful information and scientific facts presented here, now i know what is the healthy percentage body fat i should look for to stay fit instead of just BMI.

  • The challenge was to BLJ. BLJ is a SM64 speedrun strat where you build enough speed using stairs to clip through a door, often locked by a star limit. That’s why it is possible to do a SM64 0 Star speedrun.

  • I agree body fat doesn’t determine fitness, I’m between 18-20percent fat and can bench 270 and run a 6.30 mile (I’m 16 and my body weight)is 210. I’ve seen people lighter and leaner than me that are way less athletic

  • Hopefully people will see this video explaining this. This video is really helpful. A lot of people think that all they have to do is rely on BMI. Keep up with these videos. More people will probably pay attention to their body fat.

  • Monosaturated fats are good for you!! Get your facts right!! In 1952 a scientist claimed saturated fats/ just fats are bad for you because he saw that Americans eat a lot of fatty foods and die a lot and he compared it with Japan which eat little fatty foods and have a low death rate, explain to me how stupid and not stable this research is?? Harvard scientist have also proven monosaturated/saturated fats are good for you!! Can’t believe schools, national medical centres get brainwashed by one guy!!

  • If you’re overweight, isn’t it still unhealthy even if it’s all muscle? The BMI might not show your leanness accurately, but a high BMI is likely unhealthy because your body is under strain from added weight. Correct?

  • Great video! Lot’s of useful info!
    I’m 27 and have 10.00% body fat, which falls on the lower side of what’s healthy for my age.
    Should I get it a bit higher just so I make sure I’m healthy?

  • Drink water and green tea
    Eat oatmeal for breakfast
    Meditate to de-stress
    Reduce salt
    Walk around regularly
    Elevate feet
    Exercise regularly
    Sleep
    Eat fiber rich food

  • You can be overweight with lean muscles the same way. Your body has a limit of healthy weight it can carry even if that’s muscles. That’s why you have bodybuilders that have joint issues etc. It’s relative, but still can be bad.

  • Hi Dr A! I agree with your entire meal plan and have been counting my macros for about 4 months. My only contention is that you allow for no snacks whatsoever which I think would eventually lead someone to quit the program. There are healthy snack like apples, popcorn, carrots, celery, nuts which if includes in your macros will still give your body the right nutrients it needs.

  • I enjoyed this video and was wondering about certain fats and what are good fats and bad fats. This video has cleared a lot of things up for me. Good job.

  • I just got measured at the local fitness center and got 5.7% I thought it was “good” until I saw these charts…I might have to add more “fat” 😉 However, can you measure muscle weight?

  • I am 20 years old, I don’t look fat. I weight at 73kg and am 177cm tall. The funny things here. Sometimes in my clothing I might appear skinny and at worst look little above average weight. However my body fat percentage is 31% and I am in shock. I see all the fat on my body and mainly eat Salads and take nutrition from Herbalife. I hope that I can get it down to 20% in 3 months.

  • I’m a competitive figure skater and I recently did a body scan; the results were a BMI of 18.2 and a BF% of 2%. I’m 16 and 171cm. I dont know if I should be concerned?

  • Terrific video. Many people go by BMI. Figure if their within 20-25 they are good. Yet there will still be visible fat maybe around the belt-line. The hardest and last bit of visible body fat to get rid of. Maybe you could do a video on how men can get rid of that last bit. Though, most would have a general idea.

    Good to finally have a fitness for people over the age of who is actually a MD and not some one who took a few home study courses for a “fitness trainer diploma”.

  • WOW! That chart makes me feel so good. I’ve worked so hard to reach 17.1% body fat (Male, 56 yrs old, 5′ 11″, 151.5 lbs) over the year (down from 29%). According to that chart it puts me in the Lean category. I (and my wife) can see big changes in my body BUT I don’t feel as though I am ready to take off my shirt on the beach. When I sit down AND especially when I bend over I can still see a (smaller) mound of fat hanging over. Losing weight (the right way) is no problem for me. I work out with heavy weights 4 times a week.

    What I really want is to get down to at least 15% to 13% body fat without having to go down to 130 lbs or 140 lbs. However I see that as I loose weight I lose body fat. As I gain weight I gain body fat. The two are totally in sync. I don’t mind gaining weight (muscle weighs more than fat) if it means my body fat goes down.

    I think my BMI is around 22 but i don’t pay much attention to that number anymore.

    Any thoughts?

  • So what if I’ve been working out 4-5 days a week for the past 4 years chest bigger then females, multiple body parts a day and 1500-2000 calories a day and since day one haven’t went under 21% BMI. Haven’t drank soda for years very little amount of junk food. 3-4 meals a day

  • I am 17 5’8 223 lbs and I estimate about 18-22 percent body fat. Is this unacceptable for someone who is moderately active and who trains for several hours a week in combat sports?

  • Great information, I’ve never liked the BMI scale, because just like you said, it doesn’t account for muscularity. I will say that now that I’m in my early 30’s, it is noticeably more difficult to maintain my muscle mass even though I still have the same weight lifting regimen as I did in my 20’s.

  • Ok so I was scanned 2 different ways. Standard and Athletic(since I played football) the standard said I was 20% body fat but the athletic said I’m 11.9% but I feel as if I’m not 11.9% because I can only see my top 2 abs. I’m 18 btw. Any idea if it’s wrong or do I just have a little more fat % in the belly area

  • Hey kiddos listen just do some simple exercise eat less if your really huge you can fast some of the result of fasting is impressive people lost 30 to 40 by just doing it for a month and if you wanna lose those extra pounds EXCERSIE

  • The irony is that SMG3 was the hero of the first arc, and is was the villain in the most recent.
    Moral of the story, don’t cancel the show of a former psychopath

  • Great videos Sean! Great to see a knowledgeable, humble guy sharing his tips and touching on topics like these. Solid gold advice as usual. Too many guys obsess about washboard abs.thanks for clearing it up!

  • Today at the gym, the electrical impedance meter said I was 17% body fat, which was a bit higher than I expected. I was thinking I was around 12%. I was a bit disappointed…

  • I like how they see fat as the bad guy when instead you need fat for hormone production and so on. Nothing beats saturated fat though!

  • Your body doesn’t have to change so much. I am 52 and have a six pack for the first time in life. Completely changed my diet and am exercising daily. We can feel great and look great as we get older.

  • I love your show. The eyes you had very good Vice on your shows concerning people health issues and other situations God bless you you keep up the good work you are doing to also and I pray that God continue blessing your show

  • Go to DR. Eric Berg. Doc. OZ is a thief and “bought out” elitist. He can’t help you! This info is 70% wrong because he stole it and changed it. If you want to get the real information go to the Dr. that published this and Oz stole it and changed it.

  • This is Very professional video Dr. A! Just a matter of time till this channel blows up. I’ve always wondered and this and this video answered it perfectly. I enjoyed this video all situations. this will make more fun. Thank you solid information thanks for sharing

  • I’m sitting at slightly over 20% body fat at almost 58 years old. Over the last 3 months I have brought it down from around 24% to the 20% mark… At the gym I work out at they have a goal for me of a little over 10%, but I don’t see that happening and I feel great where I am… I am seeing more muscle tone than I have ever seen on my body right now…

  • I didn’t know much about body fat percentage for man. But after watching this, I am aware of everything and thanks for this useful info.

  • We have boobs! We have butts! You crack me up. But AWESOME! I just calculated my body fat percentage and I’m in the ideal range for my age! I feel so much better now. Seriously. Thanks for the info.

  • Snacks like apples, popcorn, carrots, celery, nuts which if includes in your macros will still give your body the right nutrients it needs. Good stuff.

  • Body fat may be important, but another thing to think about is staying hydrated(it also helps with BO because you are sweating closer to pure water)

  • I’m always confused about body fat percentages, and this discussion clears a lot of confusion that goes with BMI and age, wonderful subject to discuss Dr Balduzzi.

  • So I’m type #6… I’ve been eating clean and exercising for a month now, and the only body part that has actually toned up are my thighs even though I focus mainly on upper body����‍♀️

  • I hate the way they speak of health. like “…nudges you over the finish line.” like nutrition’s is not a race that you do once and then end…its a lifestyle change you must make. Its reprogramming your body to eat real foods that are good for you. why cant they separate the health and loosing weight and why the hell don’t they ever talk about gaining good weight.

  • Meggy’s new voice is gonna take time to get used to but it’s giving me the idea to draw her singing a lullaby to her little Destiny

  • It’s true. BMI is definitely not a one size fits all. Especially when they just use a weight/height ratio. If you look at shorter, thickly muscled, body builders, they would be obese by basic BMI standards.

  • There is a lot of evidence that our ancestors never worried about eating too much fat. There are also a lot of people still on earth who eat up to 70 percent fat, mostly animal fats in their diet and are perfectly healthy.
    Dr Balduzzi gets it, but eventually, when he matures, he will understand that saturated fat is certainly a health food and you can eat as much as you want, just like Dr Ken Berry figured out.
    Of course, Dr Berry is older than Dr Balduzzi.
