Hannah Zussman, owner of This Is Good Macadamia Nut Oil, sought after personal trainer, four-time British Record holding powerlifter and co-founder of This Is Good Macadamia Nut Oil, the healthier alternative to coconut oil, recently weighed in on the great fat debate arising from the National Obesity Forum’s recent release of controversial guidelines promoting increased fat consumption to encourage healthy weight loss.

Hannah states: “Our perception of fat continues to be marred by the low fat revolution of the 70s and 80s. However, low fat today means a chemical shit storm, whereby fat is removed and replaced with chemicals to stabilise and add flavour as well as increase sugar content. There is a reason human beings need good fats: to survive. Fat does not make you fat. Sugar makes you fat.

Fat and fatty acids play many important roles in the body from regulating inflammation and hormonal balance to providing a sustainable source of fuel. Good fats are critical for the nervous system to function properly. Monounsaturated fats prevent the build-up of plaque in the arteries and promote good cholesterol, while polyunsaturated fats lower bad cholesterol and contain essential Omega-3 fatty acids that improve brain function and immunity.

The myths surrounding fat are vast and far fetched. Consumers are frequently misled by false marketing messages on all fronts, even down to the oils we cook with in our everyday lives. Olive oil is wonderful raw, yet we still happily reach for a bottle to cook with, but it burns and oxidises losing all of its nutritional value. Whereas macadamia nut oil has a high smoke point of 210 degrees Celsius ensuring its health benefits aren’t lost in the cooking process.”
