Following a low-carb, healthy fat way of life is easy: the food is delicious, the healthy fats and protein make sure we’re rarely – if ever – hungry, and it’s pretty similar to how South Africans usually eat, just minus the bread and pap! There’s just one issue – fighting the fear of fat. Years of shocking dietary advice have trained us to think that fat is bad for us, but it’s reassuring to know that things are changing globally. In a meta-analysis conducted by Dr Zoë Harcombe and others last year, involving 89 801 participants across seven studies, they concluded: ‘Epidemiological evidence…found no significant difference in CHD (coronary heart disease) mortality and total fat or saturated fat intake and thus does not support the present dietary fat guidelines. The evidence… lacks…

does ‘you are what you eat’ apply to cows too?

Yes – but don’t let the grass-fed vs grain-fed debate stress you out. Rather stay focused on eating a diet rich in healthy fats from both animal and non-animal based sources. When it comes to choosing beef, aim to eat the highest-quality meat that you can afford. Grass-fed beef contains higher amounts of certain nutrients, such as vitamins A and E, but the important factor to focus on is that both grain-fed and grass-fed beef are highly concentrated sources of nutrients. Beef contains high amounts of vitamins B12, B3 and B6 and is rich in highly bio-available iron, selenium and zinc. It also contains high-quality protein and a host of lesser-known nutrients – among them creatine and carnosine, which are both very important for muscle and brain development.

The next day, my cardiologist told me to go to the hospital immediately and a few hours later I was operated on. In the blink of an eye my life went from spending the day with my family and friends to waking up in the ICU. His doctors couldn’t tell him what the exact cause of his heart attack was but speculated that it might be genetic, or related to stress or weight. ‘After my heart attack I was immediately put on a ton…
