All About That Fat (song parody)

Before we get humming, a few notes. When talking about the brain, fat and cholesterol are positive things. Your brain is a very fatty organ and 25% of the body’s cholesterol is found in the brain. This is why we are about to celebrate fat in song. But before you reach for the cheese and chocolate “in the name of brain health”, you should know that your brain does not need you to eat cholesterol: it makes its own. So crank up the karaoke  and sing along!

 

Project - Drawing 1710617230All About that (Brain) Fat 

 

Because you know I’m all about that fat

‘Bout that fat in my brain

I’m all about that fat, ‘bout that fat

‘Bout that fat in my brain

 

Yeah it’s pretty clear I’ve got cholesterol

But my brain makes it makes it like its supposed to do

‘Cause it forms myelin sheaths that all the axons need

All the right fat in all the right places

 

I see cholesterol building cell membranes

You know that stuff we need

Come on now hormones too

If you’ve got fatty brain cells just raise ‘em up

‘Cause every neuron cell needs fat from the bottom to the top

 

Yeah, my momma she told me don’t worry about your brain

She says “cells like omega 3 fatty acids to ease their strain”

You know myelin sheaths protect the axons of my nerve cells

So electric transmissions

Can go ahead and move along

 

Because you know I’m all about that fat

‘Bout that fat in my brain

I’m all about that fat, ‘bout that fat in my brain

I’m all about that fat, ‘bout that fat in my brain

I’m all about that fat ‘bout that fat

 

I’m bringing HDL

My brain makes all it needs to keep me well

So I’m just eat to lower LDL

But I’m here to tell you that

Every neuron cell needs fat from the bottom to the top
