After years—no, decades—of being rejected by health circles, fat has finally made its way off the banned foods list. And nowhere is its moment of redemption more apparent than the ultra-popular ketogenic diet. Who would’ve thunk that embracing full-cream dairy, whole eggs, and snacks literally known as fat bombs could come with benefits like weight loss and even improved heart health?!
