The Truth About Fats (Jumpscare Warning!!)

To set things straight, I would like to preface this by saying that eating fats do not make you fat. This might be a bit scary to read so hold on to your stuffed animal tight: consuming foods that are rich in fat does not equate to storing more fat in the body. Period.

Protein is one of the three main nutrient found in our food. It’s made up amino acids, which are like Lego pieces. In fact, a protein is simply a long chain of amino acids. So a big tower of legos, or a tower of Jengam however you want to think about it.
Protein helps build muscle. Down a protein shake .002 seconds after your workout. These are all things you’ve probably heard being thrown around. But how does protein even get to do all these things? And why are all my Instagram reels filled with protein-ified recipes? The answer (not to my Insta page) lies in the structure.

While carbohydrates have earned a bad reputation in the past year, just like fats, they’re actually really important. Like really really.
Carbohydrates are our body’s primary and preferred energy source.
