Eat FAT Get Slim

So many of us have that fear that eating fat will make you fat!!! This is most definitely not the case if you are nourishing your body with the right type of fats.

A study from the NIH (National Institute of Health) says that those who ate more fat compared to an identical amount of carbs burned over 100 more calories within a day. Over a year, that amounts to a 5kg (10 pound) weight loss without doing any extra exercise or changing anything else in their diet! Who doesn’t want that right!

The study also showed that eating more fat shuts off hunger and cravings centres in the brain. So really, lets eat more fat so we aren’t tricking our brain into thinking we are hungry for no reason.

The brain matters most when controlling food intake, taste preference and even your metabolism.

Lets look at sugars and carbs: So eating a lot of sugar and carbs makes your body THINK you’re starving and that’s in turn why you then eat more.

This is due to the spike in the hormone insulin – that’s the fat storage hormone and this is what starts the vicious cycle of less energy, more hungry and more fat storage eeek!

In other human experiments, those who ate high fat diets had a much faster metabolism. How good is it that eating high fat and no extra exercise will help your metabolism and weight control!! Sounds good to me!!

The thing that excites me the most is that most of the biology of your fat cells, is controlled by the quality and type of food that we eat: This is why we want to be eating a higher fat, lower carb, wholefoods diet rich in those amazing good quality fats like:

  • Avocados
  • Olive oils
  • Coconut oil
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Eggs
  • Fish (salmon, sardines etc)
