5 Ways Eating Fat Helps to Burn off Unwanted Body Fat
Our bodies are fat-burning machines NOT carbohydrate-burning machines because originally our diet consisted of flesh, fruit, green plants and the occasional root and, contrary to what we have been brainwashed into believing, low-fat and fat-free diets have been injuring and slowly killing people for decades! They have fuelled the Obesity Pandemic.
Fat provides twice the energy per gram than carbohydrate or protein provides!
“No fat in the diet = no fuel to burn calories”.
The body requires energy to keep its metabolism properly functioning, and a 2007 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that consuming fatty acids can boost metabolic health.
Furthermore, anyone wanting to get rid of body fat stored around the belly, thighs, or buttocks (also called subcutaneous fat)—needs to eat fat because this “new” fat to help to break down the “old”, stored fat by activating fat burning pathways through the liver.
A good addition to the diet is avocado.
2.Fat Keeps You Full.
Fat isn’t the easiest nutrient to digest, so it sticks around in the digestive system for more time than many other nutrients.. That means you feel full longer, and you won’t feel the stomach-growling urge to raid the refrigerator after mealtime.
Oils…. olive, peanut, sunflower and sesame
Nuts and seeds….. include almonds, peanuts, cashews, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, and pistachios. Nut butters such as peanut butter, almond butter and cashew butter.
In fact, diets with high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, a type of PUFA (Polyunsaturated fats) that the body can only acquire through food, create a greater sense of fullness both immediately following and two hours after dinner than do meals with low levels of the fatty acids, according to a 2008 study from University of Navarra in Pamplona, Spain. It’s no surprise that dieters who consume moderate levels of fat are more likely to stick with their eating plans than dieters who consume low levels of fat.
Benefit = more weight removed!
- Makes You Happy.
Eating yummy foods makes us happy, and low-fat versions just don’t do the trick for one surprising reason:
We’re programmed to like the taste of fat because the body knows it needs fat – so when fat is missing, we get bored with what we’re eating and eat “tasty food” which is full of nutrient-poor carbohydrates eg processed foods such as breads, biscuits, cakes and manufactured “meals”!
On an even happier fat note, omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA from fatty fish) can boost serotonin levels in the brain, helping to improve mood, increase motivation so you’re not tempted to eat high carbohydrate dishes like pizza and nutritionally devoid dishes.
Eat wild caught fish only. It’s a good idea to eat mainly small fatty fish like sardines, herring, and sild because larger fish like salmon, tuna, swordfish and mackerel (even wild caught) tend to contain pollutants like PCBs, dioxins and mercury which can accumulate in the body, so don’t eat them more than twice a week.
- Builds Muscle.
Eating good fats along with an effective exercise program can increase muscle and increasing muscle mass is vital to increasing metabolism and burning calories both in and out of the gym.
Muscle weighs more than body fat and this is why you should measure yourself not weigh yourself to check on progress!
In a 2011 study published in Clinical Science, researchers examined the effects of eight weeks of omega-3 supplementation in adults ages 25 to 45 and found that the fat increases protein concentration and the size of muscular cells in the body. Previous studies have found that omega-3 fatty acids stimulate muscle protein synthesis in older adults and can mediate muscle mass loss due to aging.
- Fat Makes Food More Effective for You
Many nutrients are fat-soluble, meaning that the body can’t absorb them without fat and if your body isn’t absorbing nutrients properly, that can result in deficiencies in Vitamins A, D, E, and K, leading to dry skin, blindness, brittle bones, muscle pains, and abnormal blood clotting.
These vitamins are also vital to maintaining energy, focus, and muscle health, all of which contribute to a healthy weight.
Vitamin E, for example, is a powerful antioxidant and helps maintain your metabolism and, according to a clinical trial from the University of Minnesota Medical School, the body’s levels of vitamin D (from sunlight) predicts its ability to lose fat, especially in the abdominal region.
So while you enjoy your salad with nutrient-rich spinach, almonds, sunflower seeds, tomatoes, carrots and egg yolk, you really need to thank the olive oil and avocado for sending the salad’s vitamins your way.
I hope you enjoyed/found useful those 5 reasons we need fat to burn off unwanted fat…
These 5 are just a few of the many reasons we need EFAs.
Eating a natural, varied diet (a Rainbow Diet) is important but we have to remember that our food today is nutrient deficient because of:-
poor, worked-out soils;
chemical fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides
harvested before it’s ripe – marketed as “Ripen at Home”—except that to ripen means to becomes full of nutrients and that can only happen whilst part of the plant!!
picked ripe but then stored – on average for 6 months – so nutrients disappear.
Therefore it’s vital that we supplement our diet with nutritional supplements.
