Welcome to the first VIBE METER! I’m so excited to share this with you.
(What is a vibe?)
To kick off the Vibe Meter, I brought on a very special Guest Vibe Critic. He’s one of my greatest teachers — I trust and respect his opinion and vibe critiques immensely.
Guest Vibe Critic: Dr. Frank Lipman!!
Dr. Lipman is here to give us the vibe critique on saturated fat.
Watch this awesome and hilarious video for his explanation on whether or not saturated fat is high vibe:
Dr. Lipman’s verdict?
Saturated fat can be high vibe!! He says, “let go of the myth that all saturated fat is bad for you.” Dr. Lipman recommends coconut oil, grass-fed butter, and fat from grass-fed meat as high vibe saturated fats.
“Recent studies have found that reduced saturated fat intake doesn’t appear to reduce heart disease risk, and may have the opposite effect due in part to the processed fillers food manufacturers put in low-fat products to make up for the fat they removed.” Read more about what Dr. Lipman has to say about saturated fat.
Saturated fats serve critical roles in the human body. They make up 1/2 of cell membrane structure. They enhance calcium absorption and immune function. They aid in body’s synthesis of the essential fatty acids and provide a rich source of fat soluble vitamins (from Mark’s Daily Apple).
Which saturated fats are low vibe, then? Trans fats like the ones found in margarine, vegetable shortening, and the partially hydrogenated and refined vegetable oils found in many packaged foods. As Dr. Lipman mentioned in the video, any fats that are “altered” or processed are low vibe saturated fats.
