BURN FAT: THE TRUTH ABOUT FATS

               

The Truth About Fats 

Fat is a major nutrient essential to your body. It supplies you with more energy and helps maintain various body functions. Fats come from both animals and vegetables. They help to make our food palatable. They also carry fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, as well as fatty acids, which are broken down to release energy and rebuild cell structure in your bodies.

Fats are related to cellulite which is basically ordinary fat. Women are prone to cellulite because the female hormone oestrogen makes them acquire fat, which tends to be stored under the skin's surface. Cellulite is a natural characteristic of the female body. It is not the build-up of toxins and impurities in the body as some believe.

What does my body need more - fat, carbohydrates or protein?
Carbohydrates, fat and protein are three different types of nutrients. They pack different amounts of energy within them and are converted to calories via different biochemical pathways. To stay healthy, 55 to 65 per cent of the energy from food needed to maintain basic bodily functions should come from carbohydrates, 20 to 30 per cent from fat, and the remaining 10 to 15 per cent from protein.

 What do you mean by 'Calorie'?
A calorie is a measure of energy. It is the unit of measurement used to indicate the amount of energy in food and used by the body.

Is there 'good' fat and 'bad' fat?
All types of fat are equally high in calories. Excessive consumption of fat can result in obesity and increased health risks.

There are four types of fat in food:

  • Saturated
  • Polyunsaturated
  • Mono-unsaturated
  • Trans fat.

Saturated fat and Trans fat can be considered 'bad' because these raise blood cholesterol when taken in excess. This increases the risk of developing heart disease and stroke. Foods high in saturated fat include meat, butter, coconut cream and vegetable oil blended with palm oil. Foods high in Trans fat include hard margarine, pastries, ice-creams and biscuits.

Replacing saturated fat in the diet with polyunsaturated fat and mono-unsaturated fat may help to lower blood cholesterol. For this reason, polyunsaturated and mono-unsaturated fat can be considered 'good' fat.

Foods high in polyunsaturated fat include margarine and vegetable oils such as corn oil, soy bean oil and sunflower oil, and fatty fish like salmon and mackerel. Foods high in mono-unsaturated fat include olive oil, canola oil, groundnut oil and avocado.

Weight Loss Facts:


Low Fat Foods DON'T WORK.  

You cannot lose weight using Low Fat Diets. Low fat foods have been popular for more than 10 years, but yet our society is getting more over-weight as each year passes.  This fact alone should tell you that eating a purely low fat menu is definitely not the answer to losing weight.

Low Calorie Diets DON'T WORK.

You will not lose weight using a Low Calorie Dieting Plan either.  In fact, eating low calories is the worst thing that you can do to your body, since that will only slow down your body's fat burning engine and ruin all chances of losing weight (low calorie diets may allow a few pounds of weight loss for the first few days, but then after that all weight loss comes to a halt --- known as a dieting plateau).  You will never get slim by starving yourself.

Low Carb Plans DON'T WORK.

You will probably find it extremely difficult to get slim using a Low Carb Dieting Plan.  Low carb diets have recently become very popular over the last few years, but the problem with low carb menus is that they are too strict and TOO HARD TO FOLLOW for average people.   Low carb menus tend to rob your body of too much carbohydrates and make it nearly impossible to continue on the program for very long.  This is why so many dieters fail to follow a strict low carbohydrate menu.

What about Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig Dieting Plans?

Weight loss and diet programs such as Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig usually involve slower dieting progress over a longer period of time, since such programs generally promise only two to three pounds of weight loss per week.  Also, diet programs such as Jenny Craig usually involve buying special meals and/or dietary supplements during the initial phases of the program.  While some people may like these types of dietary programs, we prefer a better dieting plan which focuses on faster weight loss, such as the Accelerated Fat Burning Program shown below...
