Fat-free is really a misnomer.
If it’s food, if it can be eaten, it has fat in it. Fat of some kind in some proportion, no matter how small, it’s there.
So, fat-free in the area of food doesn’t exist.
Even carrots contain fat. Plain ol’ carrots. Just try to peel a 50 gallon drum of them and see the fat accumulating on your hands.
There’s fat in fruit, not much, but it’s still there.
Essentially fat-free is what I’m going for. Then almost fat-free, when I need perhaps a tablespoon per 4 servings to emulsify the ingredients (to make stuff blend together).
I’m going back and forth between fat-free and not fat-free. Or fat-free and fatty. That’s my life and my choice.
It may make more sense to stay at a more even pace by doing low fat all the time. That doesn’t fit me. I want to indulge sometimes without going crazy.
I’m not ever going to sit down and eat a pound of butter or drink a cup of olive oil. But I do want some nut butter sometimes. And I do want some rich sauces and the occasional rich dessert.
So I prefer to be strict and then not strict. We’ll see if I can continue that up and down, varying amounts of fat and still lose the weight I need and want to lose – yoyo style.
The YOYO diet, besides being animal-free is pretty much my style of eating.
Using that foundation I’ll experiment with different methods until I get comfortable with my process and discover more of what works for me, not simply what I like.
