Increase Your Fat Intake To Burn More Fat

In this post, you’ll learn:

  • If eating fat really makes you fat
  • Why you need to consume fat
  • Bad fats you should avoid
  • Good fats you should be eating

Does eating fat make you fat?

If you’ve read some of the mainstream diet books and magazines then you will have heard this saying. Unfortunately, it is misleading and causes lots of people to take the wrong diet approach.

Such people will remove all fats from their diet. In doing so, they will eat processed foods labeled “zero fat”, and other manufactured foods.

In the end, they actually gain more body fat as a result.

I have heard such stories from many people who eventually get so confused, they are close to giving up on their weight loss goal.

The truth is that fats are needed by the body.

However, we need to separate the good fats from the bad.

The healthy fats are called monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats.

Monounsaturated fats will raise your good HDL cholesterol and prevent the unwanted build up in your arteries. As you can see, they are healthy.

On the weight loss front, they will help to prevent stomach fat. I like to get these fats from avocados, almonds, cashews, and olives. Check out some of my other articles for details on these foods.

Polyunsaturated fats will help to lower your LDL cholesterol while increasing your immune system and aiding with brain function. As these types of fats are filled with omega 6 fatty acids, they also help with skin and eye care.

I like to eat these fats from foods such as salmon (but other fish are great too, such as herring), flaxseeds and walnuts.

Fats to avoid

The fats that you need to avoid, if you want to lose weight, are trans fats. These types of fats are made from saturated fats and are then altered chemically in order to increase their shelf life.

Besides making you fat, they will also increase your risk of heart disease and lead to an inflamed body.

The biggest culprits are fries, doughnuts, cookies, chips, desserts and other processed foods. You need to check the labels of foods you buy, as some trans fats are included in foods you would not expect.

Eat good fats for health and weight loss

I lost weight by cutting down on my carbohydrate intake. In order to get the fuel I needed for my workouts, I eat more calories from fat (see those listed above). The body will quickly switch over to a state of ketosis when you start doing this.

Science shows that when the body is in ketosis for a time, the brain will start to use ketones, and therefore decrease its need for glucose. This means you will lose weight and keep your body healthy.

On top of this, studies have shown that a low carb diet is a good treatment for a range of neurological conditions, such as seizures and Alzheimer’s.

Summary

Don’t believe the hype that fats make you fat. Only trans fat will do that. However, eating healthy, clean fats will let you feel good and crank up your metabolism, so you burn calories all day – leading to a lean, trim body. There is a lot of misinformation out there about what is healthy, so to make sure what you are eating is what you should be eating, and not just another hype, let us create a Custom Meal Plan for you, so you eat according to your needs.

6 Tips To Completely Avoid The Weight Gain Trap

The obesity epidemic is driving me crazy!

Every time I leave the house I can’t help but notice all of the unhealthy people walking around. I am to the point where I want to go up to people and simply tell them that it’s not entirely their fault.

While we certainly choose what we put into our bodies, we are surrounded by marketing campaigns drawing us closer to foods and brands that claim to have your best interest in mind. We can’t even trust the health professionals anymore. They are giving out meds before even diagnosing the problem.

A money centered economy leaves huge gaps in the health and well-being of others. These doctors are quick to write a script without even thinking first about trying to treat the problem with whole foods or all natural supplements.

Why?

Well, it’s very simple when you think about it… Does your doctor make any money when he or she tells you to go out and buy a bunch of bananas?

Does he or she get wined and dined by the pharmaceutical reps for recommending fruit?

I use bananas because I am going “bananas”. The reality is bananas could be anything from super-foods to herbs and/or spices to simple whole foods that you see every time you visit your local supermarket.

6 WAYS TO AVOID THE WEIGHT GAIN TRAP

WholeFoods1-300x199

1. Question everything, even conventional wisdom

I want you to get into the habit of questioning everything you see and hear. I want you to even question my content. If you get lax and let my content slide then chances are you’ll begin to let other pieces of information slide, too. No! Question it all, mine included.

2. Don’t be afraid to ask questions

If a professional doesn’t take the time to answer you what does that say about him or her and the philosophies they stand for. I welcome all questions all of the time. Find me on one of the social platforms and see just how many questions I am answering in a day.

3. Be skeptical of “the talkers”

Be skeptical of anyone who recommends anything that they too don’t follow themselves. Say “oh yeah, if it’s so good for me then why aren’t you doing or taking it”? You’ll hear this… crickets…

Aside from questioning everything what else can we do?

Simple daily disciplines as Jeff Olson, author of The Slight Edge would say. You have to start making smart decisions. One at a time is all that’s required to get circumstances working in your favor.

4. Implement some exercise

Walk, jog, ride a bike, give your kids some attention. Start with 15 minutes.

5. Start looking at your eating habits

The best way to attack this is to keep a daily journal. Write down everything from liquids to solids and the times of these consumptions. After 7 days review the information.

Ask yourself; am I eating greens, lean meats, fruits, nuts, or seeds. Now ask yourself where can I slowly insert these types of foods. Heck pick one meal or one snack and start there. Or better yet, sign up for a Custom Meal Plan and have us do the work for you.

Remember, progress is progress no matter how big or small.

6. Read something, anything.

Find a topic you enjoy and search for a blog or download a book. Even listening to an informative podcast is a solid move in the right direction. Again begin with 15 minutes a day.

Plan, do, review and question it all.

According to the latest report by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) that our adult obesity rate has reached as high as 34.7% in Louisiana and Alabama. In another 41 states, the obesity rate has reached at least 25%.

We’ve got to wake up.

If you haven’t spent a lot of time with me via social media Twitter and/or Facebook than you don’t know this yet, but I am here to help. Lean on me and let’s get fit together.
