🙏 Don’t be afraid of cholesterol. God made it. Your are made up of it. 💯 It’s vegetables oils and excessive carbohydrates that is the problem. 👇 Here are 4 Purposes of Cholesterol …
1: Cholesterol is the building block for many hormones. 🔥 If you want to burn fat, and feel good, take care of your hormones. 🤬Without adequate cholesterol your sex hormones would be depleted.
2: Cholesterol makes up your cell membrane. 💪 Your cell membrane is the bodyguard of your DNA. It protects it from damage. Did you know that the membrane is made up of protein, fat, and CHOLESTEROL? 🙌 Life begins and ends at the cell membrane.
3: Cholesterol makes up the brain and part of nervous system. 🧠 Our brain is at least 60% fat! When someone calls you a fathead, smile at them and say thanks. 😁 🍼 Breast milk contains saturated fat and cholesterol, helping the baby go in and out of ketosis; this helps the development of the brain.
4: Cholesterol helps make bile and vitamin D. 👏 Bile is SUPER important on the Keto Diet. Bile acts as a detergent to break down fats. 🥴 The number one reason people feel like crap on the keto diet is sluggish bile. 😯 We need cholesterol to make Vitamin D. Vitamin D actually becomes a hormone within the body, particularly a secosteroid hormone. ☀️ What we know as vitamin D is really a precursor to a steroid hormone. It impacts not only our skeletal structure, but also our blood pressure, immunity, mood, brain function and ability to protect ourselves from cancer. 🥩🥥🧀🥑🍳 Don’t be afraid of eating healthy fats like eggs, butter, grass fed beef, coconut oil, and avocados. 🤔 Did you know? 😳 Most people die with heart disease who have normal to low cholesterol, than with high cholesterol! 📚 Read The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz to learn more: https://amzn.to/32vn69r
