RE-RELEASE: Why Fat Doesn’t Make You Fat

SHOW NOTES: Episode 53

“Eating fat makes you fat.” That has been the school of thinking for most Americans for more than two decades now. It’s a theory and myth that has kept our nation’s people sick and overweight. Fat isn’t bad on its own and there is no reason to fear it any longer. So if you banned fat back in the 90s, or if you are still holding on to the belief that eating fat will make you fat, it’s time to jump off that derailed bandwagon.

This episode is a re-release of my very first episode of Feed Yourself! Over the weekend, my family had burgers – not turkey burgers, but real hamburgers – and it made me remember all the days in the past that I too believed the lie of fat making you fat. So friend, I hope you listen to this episode and stop fearing the burger or whatever food it is that you love but have cut from your life out of fear. 

Check out today’s episode.

Thank you for tuning in! I’d love to chat more about this and any other questions you have over on Instagram (@rachelmeigsking)!

In this episode, we cover:

  • Why fat doesn’t make you fat
  • Fat is an essential part of a healthy diet
  • Eating the right kind of fats actually promotes weight loss



Feed Yourself: Healthy Habits for the Mind, Body, & Soul is all about learning the key components of overall health based on Biblical principles. When most people think about getting in shape and becoming “healthy”, they immediately think about their physical health: losing weight, making exercise a priority, possessing flexibility and endurance, and remaining disease free. But Scripture makes it clear that physical wellness is not the only area that impacts health. In order to be TRULY healthy, we have to focus on four areas: spiritual health, emotional health, mental health, and physical health. 

This podcast dives deep into the tools and head knowledge you will need in order to create lasting results, but it also looks at the element that truly ties it all together – the heart knowledge that incorporates faith in God in this area of our lives and how to apply it when things get tough (and they will!).

I wanted to create a space to let you know you are never alone on this journey. Through years of experience in doing everything the WRONG way, I am here to share my journey of getting healthy from the inside out – ditching the restriction and diet culture and truly learning to treat my body as the temple God intended it to be. 

Grab a cup of coffee and join me as I discuss healthy habits to incorporate in your daily life to propel you forward and FEED YOURSELF on your journey to health in all areas: mind, body, and soul!
