As discussed in the Fast Tract Digestion book series, problems digesting certain carbohydrates are at the root of so many if not most digestive health problems. But, ill fated fat phobias prevent people from cutting enough troublesome carbs while maintaining a healthy weight.

Once we understand that fats, including saturated fats, are healthy and an important part of our nutrition, adding fat calories in place of carb calories becomes second nature. And most importantly, digestive health almost always improves as a result.

Here’s a couple of great studies / articles which highlight fat’s highly anticipated and overdue comeback:

Association of dietary, circulating, and supplement fatty acids with coronary risk: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Study: Doubling Saturated Fat in Diet Does not Increase Saturated Fat in Blood

About the Author:

Norm Robillard received his Ph.D. in microbiology from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst studying Bacillus anthracis and other Bacillus species. His post-doctoral training at Tufts University focused on antibiotic resistance and gene transfer between the gut microbes Bacteroides fragilis and E. coli. During his career in pharma / biotech, Dr. Robillard studied the genetics of antibiotic resistance, septic shock, viral illnesses and antimicrobial and antibody-based therapies prior to founding the Digestive Health Institute. Dr. Robillard is the creator of the Fast Tract Diet, author of the Fast Tract Digestion book series and publisher of the Fast Tract Diet mobile app. He was the first to propose excess intestinal fermentation as the underlying cause of acid reflux and explained the connection between intragastric pressure from gas-producing bacteria in our intestines, nutritional malabsorption and the symptoms of acid reflux. His latest book series, Fast Tract Digestion provides a safe and effective dietary tool and behavioral strategy as an alternative to proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), H2 blockers, IBS drugs or antibiotics for heartburn, acid reflux, GERD, laryngopharyngeal reflux disease (LPR), IBS and other SIBO related conditions.
