To Lose Fat, You Must Eat Fat

If you’ve recently been paying attention to the news, then you’ve undoubtedly have seen reports where egg yolks have been taken off the “bad” foods list…

In fact, the nutrition and medical community are now conceding that they were wrong and giving us misinformation about the true causes of heart disease and other metabolic disease.

For years, we were told that eating foods high in cholesterol would lead to weight gain and heart disease. This is information was well known to be incorrect in the fitness community and it took some time for the guys in the white coats to finally admit it!

Law #16 is about convincing you it’s safe to eat fat… and you should really be eating a good portion of your calories from fat if you want to lose it.

Although cholesterol has been given a bad rap, there are actually really wonderful fat fighting nutrients in good fats. When you ingest these fats, they breakdown into little fatty acids that help repair your hormones system. Which make it easier for us to maintain good health and a slender waistline.

Now it’s important that you know which fats are considered the “good” kind.

One of the most important types of fat you want to increase is Omega-3 Fatty Acids and you can find these in:

  • avocados
  • olive oil
  • coconut
  • whole eggs
  • fatty fish
  • walnuts
  • flaxseeds
  • nut butters

The bad fats are known a trans fats and are found in processed and packaged foods.

If you’re purposefully been eating the fat-free types of foods, do yourself a favor and go back to what mother nature intend us to eat!
