An interesting tidbit came across my path today, as one of my favorite bloggers announced the release of a meta-analysis by one of the most prominent lipid researchers in the entire world, Dr. Ronald Krauss. The meta-analysis looked at the observational studies evaluating the link between saturated fat intake and cardiovascular disease. Surprise, surprise they found absolutely no link between the two, quoting:
“A meta-analysis of prospective epidemiologic studies showed that there is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of CHD or CVD.”

After 40 years of bullshit advice, is the medical community finally going to come around? We shall see.
Finally, I want to leave you guys with a nice smoothie recipe for the weekend. I “borrowed” and modified this from the new Warp Speed Fat Loss diet template, so if you are a cherry fan, take note!
Chocolate Cherry Bliss
- 6oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or unsweetened chocolate if you can find it, or water)
- 1/2-1 cup frozen dark cherries
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp walnuts
- ice as desired
This is absolutely delicious, and is a great treat if you are craving something a little sweet at the end of the day. You could spice it up even more and add 1 tbsp raw cacao nibs as well.
Have a great weekend everybody!
