What is Fat

The easiest answer is fuel. Not the only essential fuel, but pretty darn close to it. Most of us used to think that we had to carbo-load for energy, but carbs are a fairly inefficient mode of energy (however, relatively cheap.) Fat on the other hand, is slower burning, adds to DNA replication and aids in joint health. Fats (i.e. nuts, avocados, bacon, mmmmm!) are important throughout the day to keep a steady fuel supply and prevent crashing. Fat will only really store up with the aid of carbs (and insulin response.). Keep the carbs down, the fat up and you'll keep a better fuel tank without putting the reserve tank on your waistline.
