Fat Loss Tip #10 – Eat More FAT

Eating Healthy Fats Pushes Out BODY Fat….

I’ve been preaching this since day 1 of the challenge but I realize some people need a reminder. (If you’re not in my weight loss group this info may be new to you)

I’ve also heard so many people say “I don’t like pouring (fat) olive oil on my food right before I eat it so I cook with it instead”. Well cooking with a healthy oil/fat is step 1 BUT you still have to eat one serving of fat per day to really shed some serious weight.

Think about it like this if you like to take a pile of crab legs and dip each one into a bowl of butter or take French bread and soak up ALL the oil out of the bowl before you eat it…...then guess what????? You ate a ton of fat, way more than what was required. So let’s not make excuses for things that we know we can do.

EAT MORE FAT. Did you know that the Institute of Medicine recommends that a diet be made up of 35 percent fat? Turns out, high-fat foods like nuts, avocados and healthy oils can help you lose fat faster than other diet approaches.

Fat from healthy sources such as lean animal fats, Coconut oil and raw coconut (chalk full of MCT’s), nuts, seeds, avocados and healthy oils are EXTREMELY beneficial in improving body composition and stimulating weight loss.

Just remember that peanuts/peanut butter DO NOT count because its a bean and not a nut. Nor does any of those so called healthy spreads and smart butters count because its full of junk.

Keep in mind if you’re REALLY trying to lose a ton of weight that nuts should be limited to no more then 4 ounces a day as they can hinger your progress. However if you’re already lean, you can eat more nuts especially walnuts which have a favorable omega 6 to omega 3 ratio.

Almonds, Brazil Nuts, Cashews, Macadamias, Pecans, walnuts, flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds are great. Olives and avocados are good too. Also look for olive oil, walnut, and flaxseed oil.
