Question by Dodgeson: My friend eats a “healthy diet”, but says she only eats about 20 gramms of fat per day. Is this dangerous?
She eats three meals that are highly nutritious in all other respects, but I worry that her fat intake is inadequate.
She has always been slim, but not anorexically boney or unhealthy-looking. She says that she has a medical condition that makes her body ‘hold’ fat easily. She does not look ill and she is not weak or tired because of it. Unless she is lying about the diet, I can’t understand how she isn’t weak or ill.
What could happen to her if she doesn’t change her diet? Degenerative conditions – scary. Maybe I can scare some common sense into her. 🙁
