Cholesterol and Saturated Fat is Healthy!

In the world of health there have been some seismic shifts recently. Cholesterol in food has been un-demonised and saturated fat - at long last - gets to throw off the villain's robes. At Ambition we have been saying this with confidence for over five years.

We will keep spreading the word and telling anyone who will listen, and introducing them to the secret of how to have a healthy, fit and - fingers crossed - illness-free life.
