Phil Heath (The Gift), will make an appearance at BOTH Monster Supplements stores in Hull on Thursday 15th May. The mighty Phil Heath entered bodybuilding in 2002 and in 2005 we won the overall title at the National Physique Committee USA Championships, earning himself the right to compete as an IFBB Pro! It was during the 1990s that 'low-fat' products really came to prominence and they continue to be marketed in supermarkets and on our TV screens today with the promise that they are much 'healthier' options. The reason for this low-fat bandwagon is, in part, due to the belief that consuming fat (saturated fat especially) increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease.


There are further studies that show that there is no correlation between consuming saturated fat and the risk of heart attacks (3), and no associations were found between total fat, any specific types of fat or cholesterol and the risk of strokes in men during a 14 year cohort study (4). As well as the supposed health issues listed above, there has also been a misconception that consuming dietary fat of any kind will lead to fat gain. Even with all the information readily available today regarding fat intake, it is still surprising that many people are scared to consume even small amounts of dietary fat, (naturally occurring) saturated fat in particular. However there have been a number of studies that show that dietary saturated fat is not the cause of CVD or CHD (1),(2). In fact, despite being the most calorific macronutrient (9 calories per gram compared to protein and carbohydrates which are 4 calories per gram) dietary fat alone isn't going to cause an increase in body fat.


Full fat grass-fed dairy for example is rich in a number of fat soluble vitamins particularly vitamin K(6) which is responsible for bodily functions such as the assimilation of calcium.
