I know I’ve said this several times but I find myself repeating this often only because I notice that many people are not in the habit of eating FAT to loose Fat.
Then later after trying paleo I hear, “Paleo didn’t work” due to x y z blah blah blah…… And after listening to ALL of your x,y & z issues I find out you DID NOT really follow the instructions for Paleo for weight loss.
Then you state “but Tish I HATE avocado!” and I don’t think I will like coconut oil…..I cook with olive oil, and I take a couple of omega 3 pills most days…….
What everyone must realize is that true some people may not need to eat exactly like me to experience the results that I have.
While others of you may need to be even more STRICT. The best thing for you to do is TEST to see how you respond to various foods and adjust accordingly.
We are all different and require varying levels of fat, protein and carbohydrate for our specific metabolic needs.
If you are like me and are metabolic deranged it may be necessary to cut your carbohydrate intake down to the bare minimum, and make sure you eat enough protein not to much and not to little.
One of the MAJOR keys to my success with Low-carb Paleo has been a very deliberate increase in fat consumption. I haven’t been afraid to eat fat on my low carb diet.
In the absence of carbs it is the body’s fuel source. But pushing fat levels even higher while restricting carbohydrate and protein has made all the difference in the world.
Here are 8 high-fat foods you should be eating to be successful at weight/fat loss.
1) Avocados – 82.5% fat
2) Butter – 100% fat I prefer grassfed by kerrygold
3) Whole eggs – 61% fat
4) Coconut oil – 100% fat
5) Bacon – 69.5% fat
6) Coconut – 88% fat
7) Dark Chocolate – 65% fat
8) Fish Oil omega 3 – 100% fat
Special note on fish oil: if you are eating more junk foods than Paleo foods it more important for you to take the fish oil supplements than the person that’s eating a good Paleo diet.
Why? Because non Paleo foods have a ton of omega 6 in them so you have to get those healthier omega 3 oils in to balance the junk out.
