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.

The Truth About The Fruit Diet Weight Loss Program

There are always new diets being created and advertised online.

One of them is called the fruit diet weight loss plan. I wanted to make some comments about this diet plan.

It is advertised as one of the quickest ways to lose weight while eating healthy foods. This is only partly true.

Fruits should be eaten in a normal meal plan, as they are very healthy (lots of antioxidants) and can help you to drop weight and feel great very quickly (if people have been eating lots of processed foods).

In this post, you’ll learn:

  • How to lose weight and flush out toxins
  • What is a fruit diet?
  • How to know what fruits to eat

Here are some of the benefits of eating more fruit:

Lose weight and flush out toxins

Eating lots of fruit is good for more than just losing weight. Here’s why: fruits are one of the best detoxifiers for the human body. It is these toxins that lead to diseases and fat gain over time.

It has been shown that many of the toxins found in the body come from the fat in the body. Toxins are also found in the build-up of unprocessed foods in the intestines. By eating more fruit, this material can be flushed out, which leads to detoxification.

And during all this time, your body is being flooded with high-quality nutrients and vitamins (from the fruit).

What’s involved in the fruit diet? 

Simply stated, you can eat fruit whenever you want to. This means anytime you feel hungry, you can grab a piece of fruit. There is no limitation.

Many people don’t consider fruit a meal, but you may be shocked at how quickly you feel full. And your hunger pangs will soon disappear.

It is very important that you drink plenty of water on this type of diet. Aim for at least 8 glasses of water each day.

Which fruits should I choose?

Firstly, start your day with a glass of warm water, with 2 tablespoons of honey and half a freshly squeezed lemon.

From there, fruits such as apples, strawberries, watermelon, and any kind of citrus fruit are the best to choose. Aim for lots of citrus fruits as they are low in sugar and come with lots of fiber (great for a smoothly running digestive system). The grapefruit is one of the best to choose.

Choose apples also, but aim to buy the smaller ones first. These are better for you as they contain pectin, phosphorous and potassium. The pectin is an oily substance found on the intestine wall. This keeps your bowel movements regular.

Why I don’t endorse the “fruit diet weight loss plan”

Fruits are very important for optimal health. And they are perfect for losing weight and cleaning out your system. You will feel lighter, have more energy and a smaller waistline if you add fruits as part of your weight loss program.

However, fruit should never be the only food group that you consume. Your body requires protein, fats, and carbohydrates to function as it should. I encourage you to read my article on how I ate to get to 8.3% bodyfat.

The other foods groups are needed to lose weight (in fact, they are essential).

So, you should certainly eat raw fruit, make fruit salads and snack on fresh fruit during the day. Variety is important.

But you also need to eat lean meats, veggies, eggs, nuts, berries and so on. For more snack ideas, see my post on 7 snacks that ignite your metabolism.
