Over the past few decades, fat has received a bad reputation. Now there are some bad fats, BUT the good fats are beneficial and can even help some people lose weight and get skinny. Contrary to all we have been “spoon fed” about fat, the real culprit that prohibits weight loss is sugar,! Sugar plus the wrong fats like trans fats plus inflammatory vegetable oils can cause weight gain and the inability to lose weight.
The good type of fats that you DO want to enjoy are olive oil, coconut oil, avocados, nuts, seeds and fish oils; these particular fats should not cause you to gain weight but instead help you to get skinny. These are the type of fats that can help you burn the stubborn and hard to lose fat. Studies have shown that small amounts of coconut oil daily help trim belly fat! Adding healthy fats will keep you full longer, cutting down on food cravings. Now of course in saying that, please know that you need to have the right combination with your healthy fats or you could end up sabotaging your weight loss efforts altogether.
Anti-inflammatory diets such as Keto and Paleo both incorporate good fats and many who struggle with weight have been able to keep the weight off with these two plans.
