5 Ways Eating Fat Helps to Burn off Unwanted Body Fat
- Fat Burns 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.
MUFAs(Monounsaturated fats) may also help stabilize blood sugar levels, according to Mayo Clinic.
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.
Other Foods….. avocados and black or green olives.
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.
Challenge…..how to know which are effective and which are a waste of money!
In my experience, Modere are the best choice because for more than 30 years they have provided carefully formulated supplements containing therapeutic amounts of top class nutrients which I have seen bodies use extremely effectively, time and again; plus the safest, most effective personal care products which do not lead to a toxic body!
Omega-3 EFA http://bit.ly/2qnsZiI is one of the Core Four supplements:- Mineral Solutions http://bit.ly/2qnsZiI anti-oxidant cocktail – Cell Protect http://bit.ly/2pV9Cil and pro-biotics – Protozymes http://bit.ly/2g1hInM which are needed for a healthy body, plus safety-conscious personal care products to help us Live Clean https://www.modere.eu/Category/collections (Code 994155 gives you £10 off your 1st Order)
Give them a 3 month trial and feel the difference they make. 🙂
Mineral Solutions – not vitamins – are the “Spark of Life”.
- Minerals are the keys which unlock every other nutrient.
- They keep the body alkaline.
- They are needed by every part of the body.
- Gut bacteria partner with them to make the enzymes needed to digest our food.

Aggressive promotion of cheap-to-produce multi-vitamins have brainwashed the Public into believing that they are the most vital nutrients the body needs, when actually it’s minerals that are vital.
Today, minerals are missing from meat, vegetables and fruit (real food) so that supplementing is vital to maintain good heath!
The Government knows this is true and has classified Modere’s Mineral Solutions as food, making it VAT FREE.
Nutritional supplements need to be taken for at least 3 months because it takes that long for the body to produce sufficient new cells to begin making a difference.
To give the body a good start I recommend that for the first week, 15ml be taken before breakfast and before the evening meal, then subsequently just taking it before breakfast.
Why not treat your body to 3 months of what it needs and see the difference yourself?

What is Diet and why is it important?
Prior to writing this article I looked up the definition of two words:-
Diet and Food.
Diet is defined as “way of feeding”.
In other words, it’s the food we eat out of habit.
Today the sad thing is that we are consistently being tricked into believing that if we can put it into our mouths and swallow it, it tastes good and stops us feeling hungry, it’s food.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ That is not true ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The definition of Food is “nourishment”.
In other words it’s the fuel the body needs so it can do all the tasks it’s designed to do and if we fail to put in real food, our bodies fail to work properly and we become unwell.
The internal environment of a healthy body is slightly alkaline = 7.4 on a scale of 1 to 14 where 14 is strongly alkaline.
Even a small change makes us ill.
Digestion of food leaves a residue or “ash” –acidic or alkaline — so it’s clear that in order to maintain this delicate internal balance, our choice of food is critical because the last thing we want is an acidic body!
I think it’s a good idea to give my body the fuel it needs, when it needs it and in the correct proportions and combinations to help it extract the most benefit.
To do this, there are certain facts we need to know.
The body’s 24 hour cycle
The body’s 24 hour cycle
The body doesn’t realise (or doesn’t care) that we live in a concrete jungle with a timetable and electric lights!
It continues to function on a natural cycle and goes through 3 phases in every 24 hour period.
These are approximately 6.00 am to noon, noon to 8.00pm and 8.00 pm to 6.00 am — basically, two phases during daylight hours and one during the hours of darkness.
Whilst we are asleep (hours of darkness) the body does its “housekeeping” tasks, ie. it clears out of the cells all the waste products caused by the day’s activities, sending them off to elimination points. It also replaces damaged and dead cells, making them out of what we have absorbed during the day. (This is why we need nutritious food! cf. we may have the ingredients to make a cake but unless we have cocoa powder, it won’t be a chocolate cake!!)
The automatic elimination of waste products starts at about 6.00 am because, under “natural” conditions, we’d wake up with the sun.
By mid-day, most of the elimination has been completed so, until dusk, apart from breathing etc., the body can turn its full attention to the tasks we consciously want it to do.
This cycle has implications for the way we provide the body with nourishment
Energy is needed to eliminate waste products.
Energy is needed for our daily work.
Energy is needed to digest food and for absorption of nutrients.
Some foods take a lot of time and energy to be digested so it makes sense to eat foods in the morning which are easily and quickly digested. In other words, foods which use only a little energy to quickly release large amounts of energy and not use up energy needed for waste elimination.
In the afternoon we need energy to continue our daily work so it’s sensible to eat foods at lunch-time which provide sustained-energy release.
At night, the body needs building materials to repair and construct cells so, again, it’s sensible to eat foods at the evening meal which supply building materials
Another fact we need to take into consideration
An acid environment is required to digest one type of food and an alkaline one is required to digest another type, so it would appear to be advantageous to eat these two types of food at different times.
As we all know, acid and alkali neutralise each other and when this occurs in the stomach, it causes poor digestion with its unpleasant symptoms of gas / wind and bloating. It also means that we fail to get full value from the food!
It is therefore beneficial to eat protein and carbohydrates at different meals.
Fresh organic greens provide good nutrients
What proportions of food are best?
The human body is designed to function on a diet that is 80% of our diet should consist of green vegetables and fruit, 20% protein and complex carbohydrate (the body can make protein).
[Essential fats are present in the above]
The body’s internal environment is alkaline.
When we digest our food, green veg leaves an alkaline ash whereas carbohydrates and proteins leave an acid ash, therefore the majority of our diet needs to be green veg…!
The Ideal Diet
Pure, clean water
2 Litres of Pure Water Every Day.
Water is the most important nutrient we need – as we all know, we die very quickly without it.
We are 70% water and we need it every day to enable our cells, organs and systems to perform their functions. We lose 1 ½ to 2 litres per day through the skin, lungs and gut and via the kidneys as urine, eliminating toxic substances from our bodies.
We need to drink 2 litres of pure, clean water every day, which means that we need to filter out impurities and chemicals.
(Coffee, tea, soft drinks, alcohol do not count — in fact, they dehydrate us so we need to add an extra glass of water to compensate for each one of those we consume).
Most of us are permanently dehydrated and don’t realise it. We think we only need to drink when we feel thirsty but thirst is a sign that we are already dehydrated!
It is important that our drinking water is at body temperature because our cells cannot absorb and use cold water.
Drinking a glass of water 30 minutes before eating helps with digestion but drinking water with a meal dilutes the gastric juices, making digestion difficult. Wait two more hours before drinking any more water.
Here are two simple ways to test whether your body needs water:-
Lightly pinch the skin (front of the neck or between the thumb and first finger). If it doesn’t spring back, you are short of water.
Your urine should be nearly colourless. If it isn’t, you are short of water.
Breakfast and Morning Snacks
Breakfast and Morning Snacks
Fresh fruit contains water. It is digested and out of the stomach in 15 minutes, releasing its energy (banana takes 30 minutes) so the body is not then using up energy that it needs for eliminating toxins.
You can top-up your energy by snacking on fruit any time you feel hungry during the morning.
Due to this rapid digestion, fruit should be eaten at other times as a Starter, NOT as a Dessert, 15 minutes prior to eating carbohydrates or proteins because they stay in the stomach for an hour or more and any fruit trapped in there just ferments ….Not good…!
Anything with seeds inside is a fruit.
Melon, grapes, pineapple, water melon, peaches, apricots, plums, greengages,
apples, oranges, pears, berries, tomatoes, peppers, courgette, cucumber.
My normal breakfast consists of five or six different fruits cut up into small pieces. I eat most of it, leaving a small amount to eat mid-morning.
Carbohydrates, salad, all vegetables (fresh/frozen). (complex carbohydrates give sustained -release energy which we need in order to work in the afternoon).
Wholemeal breads (especially rye and spelt) and pastas, brown rice, carrot, parsnip, potato, beetroot, radish
Lettuce, onion, cress, herbs, garlic
Green leafy vegetables:- sprouts, cabbage, leeks, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus
Vegetables are best eaten raw or lightly cooked. (Steamed/stirfried not boiled).
Protein & green vegetables. (the body requires protein to build and repair cells so it needs to be eaten in the evening )
Fish, poultry, egg, cheese, very little red meat.
Legumes (peas, beans, chick peas, lentils), not the root vegetables listed with breads (they are Starch-Carbohydrates
Is this way of eating easy to follow?
At first I found it really hard and very strange to eat this way but I was pleasantly surprised how quickly I mentally adapted to it.
Now, it feels right and normal and, although I sometimes like to eat a traditional Sunday Dinner or Christmas Dinner (I love Yorkshire Puddings), it otherwise never occurs to me to cook potatoes and carrots etc. to eat with meat or fish, I just have three-quarters of my plate full of five or six different kinds of green veg.
I’ve become quite innovative with salad for warmer days. I have greens like wild rocket, watercress, shredded cabbage etc, not just lettuce, shavings of fresh ginger root and thinly sliced raw courgette and raw stalks of cauliflower and broccoli as well as growing my own sprouted seeds –I just have to remember to eat them at the appropriate meal. I also grow Nasturtiums and eat the leaves, stalks and flowers.
Raw veg are nutritious. Cooking kills the enzymes.
I make my own salad dressing by adding crushed garlic, black peppercorns and fresh rosemary to a bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Organic, of course. After about four days it tastes really nice and just gets better..!
Last Spring, I decided to have a parasitic and fungal cleanse so I stopped eating grains and root vegetables for a couple of months. A nice side effect was that I got rid of a stone of fat during the first two week. Lovely! I also had lots of energy and felt great.
When I re-introduced carbohydrates I did regain a little weight — about four or five pounds but that was ok because my body had rid itself of a stone and a half of unnecessary fat!
What do we need to remember?
I think it’s important to remember that the design of our bodies has not changed from when we were Hunter-Gatherers.
It struggles to cope with four-course meals where we consume protein, carbohydrates, vegetables, sugar, fancy desserts and puddings etc. all mixed in together.
I think we need to be sensible and bear in mind that a healthy body can stand some abuse as long as it’s not every day!
I like cake and sherry triffle and all sorts of yummy things and I eat them.
However, they are treats, not part of my normal everyday diet so when I do eat them, I really enjoy them!
What do YOU think?
Do you agree that the reasons I have given make a good case for eating in the way I recommend ?
“Salt is born of the purest of parents: the sun and the sea” – Pythagoras 580–500B.C.
Salt is born
When large oceans of ancient times evaporated, they left massive amounts of salt behind that was slowly dehydrated by the sun. Radial energies of the sun are one of the most potent forms of life force, so potent that all plant life sustains itself primarily through this energy. This happened at a time when pollution did not exist.
In one specific location in the Himalayas in Pakistan, these salt beds were exposed to very high pressure and temperatures, forcing a small portion of the salt to form an unusual crystalline structure, different from that found in all other salts with a higher degree of crystallization. Hence, a much higher life force field since crystallization is nature’s way of storing life force.
The life force field of Krystal salt gives it properties that make it far superior to any other type of natural unrefined salt. In repeated Russian experiments intake of brine 1% Krystal salt balances the entire meridian system of a person within 15 minutes.
Needless to say, Himalayan Krystal salt is mined using age–old manual methods, not using explosives or heavy machinery. The milling is carried out in controlled facilities, sorted, brine-washed and sun–dried in India under a regulatory body to get the highest standard possible.
Natural salt is not a medicine, but a food, much like apples, wheat, water and other natural substances. Salt is a core, essential group of nutrients with exceptional qualities and abilities fundamental to keeping us alive. In its original, wholesome, unadulterated form, there are some 84 known elements to be found in their bio-available state in this type of food, making it one of the most efficient foodstuffs available.
Europe for a long time sent asthma patients to the salt mines. They felt better after several hours per day for two weeks, and they remained free of symptoms for many months.
Sea Salt is increasingly polluted: industrial pollution, shipping accidents, sewage in rivers, both the chemical and energetic properties of the salt freshly harvested from the sea is compromised. Many of the predatory fish carry heavy metals in their flesh.
Table Salt is just sodium chloride. Much of what has become known about the negative effects of refined flour and sugar can be applied to salt. The food processing industry has been presenting us with refined, denatured sodium chloride enriched with iodine, aluminium and other ‘enhancements’ as ‘salt’, but natural salt is very different.
Usage of Water and Himalayan Krystal salt
Take ¼ to ½ teaspoon in the morning on the tongue after a pint of water. Hold it in hollowed tongue away from roof of mouth if possible. Allow salt to disperse and mix with saliva before swallowing. You need ½ teaspoon salt per day or ¼ teaspoon per 2 pints of water. So if necessary repeat the process after water in the evening.
You can bathe in Himalayan Salt. Bathing in Himalayan Salts for 15–30 minutes gives you the same effect as fasting for 3 days. 1–2 cups salt recommended.
“Slip into a sheer ocean of energy with these magical bath salts. Imagine taking a dip in the pristine primal ocean, some of 250 million years ago. Now you can. Relax, while your body absorbs the 84 vital nutrients and your skin attains the soft glow of health.”
Himalayan bath salts contain 84 essential minerals, more than any other bath salt, including magnesium, potassium, bromide and calcium which are readily absorbed into the skin during a 15–30 minute bathe.
Himalayan bath salt is known to alleviate severe cases of dry skin disorders. It will stimulate circulation, hydrate the skin, increase moisture retention, promote cellular regeneration, detoxify the skin and help heal dry, scaling and irritated skin. Salt water bathing reduces inflammation of the muscles and joints, relaxes muscles and relieves pain and soreness and, will improve psoriasis.
Do not shower off – simply dry with a towel. Afterwards, rest for about 30 minutes. Please note, if you have any heart problems consult with doctor first.”
The mixture of water and crystal salt, called Sole (so–lay) is the most flexible physical representation of pure solar and light energy. When water and this salt come together they become a different product, ‘Sole’.
The word Sole is derived from the Latin word “sol” which means the sun. Sole is nothing but the fluid materialization of sunlight. Sole means fluid sunlight or fluid light energy
Benefits of Drinking sole
- Supplies the body with the natural energy stored in the crystals which the body can hold for up to 24 hours.
- Can neutralise the alkaline/acid balance in the body and normalise blood pressure.
- Can dissolve and eliminate impurities and built up toxins which lead to stones and various forms of rheumatism like arthritis and kidney and gall bladder stones.
- Helps the circulatory and respiratory systems
- Helps relax the nervous system
- Can lower the craving for addiction
Sole will break down the build up of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, amalgam and calcium. For the body to get rid of these deposits it has to first metabolize them. Even animal proteins, which are difficult to break down and eliminate, will be eliminated through the urine due to the strong structural formation of the krystal salt. Always support this action with water intake of 8–10 glasses a day otherwise these toxic wastes will pass around the body and not be flushed out.
Sole is made by dissolving salt in water until it will dissolve no more. At this point the solution becomes saturated at 26% which is stable and ready for consumption.
Take 1 teaspoon of the sole in a glass of water every morning before breakfast. Drink on an empty stomach before breakfast. The regularity is important. From a bio-chemical point of view, within minutes, the whole stomach and intestines are being stimulated. This in turn encourages digestion and metabolism.”
