Fat! We are all afraid of it. We’ve been told to be, lead to believe that the low fat, no fat foods that have been placed before us are the answers to reaching those ultimate goals. They’re actually keeping you from them.
Our body’s work on sort of a barter system, it wants something in exchange for giving up those fats that keep us out of our favorite bathing suit, or football jersey. We need to give it something it can use better…that’s where healthy fats come in.
Those low fat, no fat foods that you are reaching for, give your body only one thing- fat for storage. You see, our bodies constantly have survival on the agenda, and when all we give it to work with is fat, that’s what it’s going to use, storing away as much of it as possible. When we give it good, healthy fat’s however, we are giving it something more, we are offering it a trade up; we give it brain power, the ability to absorb nutrients, energy in general to build muscle, burn calories and so on.
Everything in the healthy fats our body can use, so in exchange, our bodies release the extra baggage, after all-it has all it needs for battle, who needs extra weight to lug them down, right?
So what are those healthy fat’s?
Using this rule in conjunction with an exercise plan and well-proportioned meals can result in a slimmer, healthier, much happier you.
So stay away from anything that is partially hydrogenated, or has saturated fats, add some nuts to your yogurt, top it with Guacamole, or replace a salad dressing with olive oil and enjoy!
