A few years ago when my Mom had her open heart surgery, I remember reading a pamphlet a registered dietician at the hospital gave her after her surgery about what to eat and what not to eat. When I read it, it infuriated me. It told her to eat less than 5 grams of saturated fat per serving.
Now, as a nutritionist I know not all foods are created equal. A bowl of cereal may have less than 5 grams of saturated fat but it’s loaded with sugar and other processed ingredients. When sugar is consumed in excess, the body converts it to fat. How is that better for you than a healthy fat like coconut oil? It’s not.
