Are Saturated Fats the Enemy?

Few topics spark controversy in the world of nutrition like the macronutrient fat does. One of the most widely debated questions being, ‘is fat good for you?’ or more crudely, ‘does fat make you fat?’ It seems the only broadly accepted answer is that there is no answer. Much of the dispute stems from the different types of fat, the good fats versus bad fat debate. Even more complicated, historically saturated fats have a rep as bad fat, but is it a rep they deserve?

Like any diet, it can work great for some while others not so much.
