Is Fat Evil?

Let’s start this conversation by showing fat some love. As a means of fuel storage, fat takes up about six times less space than hydrated carbohydrates (glycogen), and we all likely have enough fat storage onboard to walk across the United States [1].

That’s pretty wild.

Furthermore, the deposition of body fat is a protective mechanism against the chronic overconsumption of calories (up to a point), and the unique human ability to store substantial amounts of adipose tissue for lean times, relative to other primates, is likely one of reasons we’ve taken over every corner of the world [2, 3].
