#2 – The Truth About Eating Fat


Arielle Zieja from ArielleZieja.com is our special guest today. She’s a certified Transformational Nutrition Coach, counselor, and quirky artist. She’s also a real person who has had her own food issues that she solved by eating healthy fats as part of her paleo lifestyle.

Arielle was constantly sick for years. She visited one doctor after the next while trying every diet she could find. Finally, her body started shutting down, and after her 3rd visit to the emergency room, she returned home and rediscovered a book someone had given her: Breaking The Vicious Lifestyle. It introduced her to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and Steve and Jordan over at SCDLifestyle.com. Within days of changing to this high fat paleo diet, she began feeling normal and having regular bowel movements.

Arielle shared how fat originally became the fat monster, who can benefit most from eating more fat, and what fats to pack into your diet. There’s also a special offer from Arielle for our listeners – check it out at the bottom of this post!
