Flavorful Healthy Fats

healthy-fatsWe are all aware of the programs we use on our computers but few of us are aware of how the foods we eat actually program our bodies.

Choosing to eat fructose and the wrong types of carbohydrates (for example grains which break down into sugar) lead to weight gain, obesity, weight loss resistance and other more serious health issues.

These foods “program” your body to become fat and stay fat. It’s interesting to note that most of the foods that make us fat today were not even found on diets of our ancient ancestors.

They activate and program our bodies to continue to store fat rather than burning it and once on this merry-go-round, the only way off is to remove these foods from our diets.

We need to switch up our diets to include healthy fats by replacing grains, sugars and lost carbohydrates with nutrient dense foods.

In order to drastically reduce your refined carbohydrate intake, you need to be using healthy fats such as coconut oil and other coconut products, olives and olive oil, avocados, free range eggs, butter from grass-fed cows (if possible) and good fat nuts and seeds.

(Don’t be fooled by many vegetable oils marketed as healthy…these vegetable oils are man-made, refined and processed oils and loaded with omega 6-fats that further mess with our fat-storing, fat-burning hormones).

Just by doing this one thing alone…replacing refined carbohydrates, you’ll notice a massive difference in your health and the way you look and feel. If however, you continue to feel really hungry or ravenous it is an obvious sign that you have not replaced them properly with sufficient amounts of healthy fats.

If looking lean and mean is important to you, then it’s important to put fat on your plate. If you’re looking to feel better and enjoy increased energy levels then fat needs to be on your menu.

But, it needs to be the right kind of fat.

Healthy dietary fats include:

Omega 3 fats along with monounsaturated fats that you find in nuts, olive oil and avocados top the list, are linked to better healthy and slimmer waistlines.

Omega 3 fats influence how fat is used and stored within the body and also help reduce body fat without cutting any calories. Research has shown that omega 3 acid-rich foods are of paramount importance in the weight loss war, they also alter enzyme activity involved with fat cells resulting in smaller and fewer fat cells which means less overall body fat.

Monounsaturated fats are being linked to benefits of reducing belly fat, can decrease your risk of heart disease, improve blood cholesterol levels and may help keep blood sugar levels in check.

Fat also contributes to our enjoyment and satisfaction with the foods we eat and research suggests that moderate amounts of healthy fats are just what the doctor ordered to keep your weight and health in top shape.

Bottom line is fat is essential to your health and supports numerous bodily functions. There are some vitamins for example that must have fat in order to dissolve properly and nourish your body.

Don’t cut out the fat…just switch your game from “low-fat” or “no-fat” to the right kind of fat and stay away (for the most part) from grains, sugars and refined carbs.
