Eat fat and lose weight? That sounds so wrong, right? Especially, if you remember the 90’s when most of us fell for the labeling gimmicks “Low-Fat or Fat-Free.” Those foods may have been low-fat or fat-free, but they were loaded with sugar or salt or both to make up for the lack of flavor. Eating fat does not necessarily make you fat! There are plenty of “good” fats that come from foods such as olive oil, coconut oil, avocados, nuts, seeds and fish oils that should not cause you to gain weight. These types of fats are essential for growth, development, and energy. Eat more of these fats, and you will be burning fat! Of course, in saying that, it certainly depends on what types of foods you are pairing it with. Enjoy healthy fats with protein and nutritious carbohydrates and make sure to avoid s-u-g-a-r which stop you from being able to lose weight!
If you are seriously considering losing weight, then you need to eat some good fat to get rid of the stubborn bad fat. Tired of trying to lose weight and of feeling hangry and exhausted all the time? Fat will help you feel full because it takes a little longer to digest and it gives you the fuel you need to keep going. For faster weight loss results many find the Keto diet to be a great kick starter! There is also Paleo which is great especially for people with autoimmune conditions. Both are great options for most people.
If you one of the many individuals who struggle with weight loss no matter how healthily you eat or how much you exercise, there could be an underlying issue that is putting a halt to your weight loss efforts. For example, the underlying problem could be a thyroid condition. In this case, we suggest our Comprehensive Blood Test + Thyroid and considering a 1 hour phone appointment with our head clinician so she can help get you on the right track in loosing weight and keeping it off! We understand the struggle and can help you to lose that unwanted weight!
