Lose Your Fear Of Fat
You can’t eat low fat and also low carb with the expectation that you will reach your goals.
Your energy has to come from somewhere and if your body gets to make the decision it is always going to be carbs because it is simple to use.
Doesn’t take much effort from your body to use sugar.
Does this mean you have to eat all fat and no sugar.
When you are eating to reach your goal though the best success comes when you limit your carb intake to under 50 grams per day.
This means healthy fats are going to be majority of your fuel source. Now when you reach your goal and move to a maintenance phase we can talk about balancing out the ratio of carbs to fat just a little.
For now know that if you want to reach your goals as quickly as possible then Fat has to become your friend.
Not all fats are the same though and you do need to be selective about which fats you eat for energy.
Omega 3 fats should top the list and many think fish when they hear omega-3 fats. There are plenty of other options though.
Some other good sources are:
- Omega-3 rich eggs
- Chia seeds
Other fats that provide good energy are oils such as coconut oil and olive oil.
Full fat cheeses are good options as well as real butter.
Just remember that we can’t fear fat if we ever want to break the dependency on sugar. Our bodies adapt and when we feed it in a smart and intelligent way it will thrive without the need for sugar.
