Fats have had many contradicting messages surrounding them throughout the years.
And for the most part, it has become so vilified. 🦹
But is fat really all bad?
With the controversy surrounding this topic, it’s so important to bust through the myths to get to the truth!
This week on The Goodness Lover Podcast, we spoke with Dr. Matthew Nagra—a Naturopathic Doctor who is a passionate advocate for evidence-based nutrition as medicine.
