Today’s picture takes over most of the post, so I’ll try to keep this short and sweet. Many of you have probably experienced something similar, but when I’m warming up my breakfast in the morning I always get comments on my meal choice. I usually eat scrambled eggs with sweet potatoes mixed in and some kind of meat. Most people around look longingly at my meal and comment something along the lines of, “I wish I could eat like that but I would have a heart attack,” as they pick up their muffin or bagel. Usually I just smile and nod because explaining why eating fat doesn’t cause heart attacks isn’t really morning coffee conversation. Other than directing people to articles, papers or books, I’ve always wanted to find a simple diagram that explains what happens to your body when you select carbs for a meal. Well, as you can see, I finally came across this infographic on one of the blogs I follow. The blog is called The Bulletproof Executive written by Dave Aspry, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur who has experimented with his body to increase brain function and lose weight. In his post about eating more fat, he references Gary Taubes books Good Calories, Bad Calories and Why We Get Fat, and cites the above infographic as a great summary of the information provided in his books. So maybe the next time someone drools over my fatty breakfast, I’ll just send them a link to the bulletproof blog so they can quickly and easily get the picture.
