Fat Doesn’t Make You Fat!

For decades, the healthcare industry (including doctors!) demonized fat.  They told you that foods high in fat were the main cause of weight gain.  They declared that fat increases your cholesterol, eventually leading to heart disease and death.  Soon, huge companies began marketing their “low-fat” foods and lining them on the shelves of grocery stores everywhere (and as you well know, fat-free foods are still extremely popular).

But guess what?  They were WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!

Listen, I’m a science guy (my degree is in Biochemistry) so the spreading of this misinformation really makes my blood boil.  To this day, most people (maybe even you) are terrified of eating too much fat.  Well no wonder!  It’s been beat into your head that fat is going to not only make you look the Pillsbury Doughboy, but it’s going to kill you.

Nonsense.  Fat doesn’t make you fat, so get that out of your head right now.  This myth was debunked by science years ago (there are countless studies and books written on it).  And, the real culprit behind weight-gain and heart disease has been exposed…sugar!

Here’s one of the big problems: When you go on a low-fat kick, you’re depriving your body of vital nutrients.  Nutrients that nourish your body from the inside out — giving your skin a more supple, healthy, and more youthful glow.  When you don’t eat enough fat, your skin tends to looks parched, wrinkled, and dull.  You look weathered on the outside, and the situation is even worse on the inside because…

A low-fat diet makes you crave MORE sugar!

When you don’t have enough fat in your diet, you crave more and more sugar.  And I don’t just mean the sweet stuff, I’m talking about carbs like bread, pasta, rice, etc.  Carbs ARE sugar.  When your body digests and breaks down the carbs you eat, they are converted to sugar.  It’s all the same in the end.  This is exactly why when you go on a low-fat diet, you never lose any weight!

If you’ve ever tried eating low-fat, I’m sure you remember fighting the constant feeling of hunger.  But, the reason you were hungry all the time wasn’t because you’re gluttonous.  Good grief, don’t be so hard on yourself.  No, it’s because your body digests sugar lightening fast — making you feel hungry soon after you eat.  Even worse, studies have shown that eating sugar increases your craving for even more sugar. (This stuff is like crack!)  It’s a vicious cycle that will leave you tired, hungry, overweight, and more prone to disease.

Here’s how you can slow down (and even REVERSE) the aging process…

Obviously, you should avoid those low-fat and fat-free products like the plague.  Don’t be fooled by the fancy packaging with sayings like “Healthy for Your Heart” or “Lowers Your Cholesterol.”  These carb-laden products (most of which are processed) will only make you fat and and sick — and now you know why.

To reclaim your youth and reverse the inflammation, you must cut down on the carbs and start eating more protein and fat.  Your body NEEDS fat in order to stay healthy and function optimally.  And, good fat will actually help you lose more weight.  Yes, healthy fats like omega-3’s found in fish, eggs, seeds and nuts fight inflammation AND curb your hunger because they take longer to digest, signaling your brain that you’re full.  You’ll feel satisfied for much longer periods of time so you won’t overeat.  And, when you do finally get hungry, you won’t crave all that age-accelerating sugar!

Here’s a list of healthy, inflammation-busting foods highest in omega-3 fatty acids:

  1. Wild caught fish (salmon, herring, mackerel, sardines, and tuna)

  2. Pasture raised meat, eggs and dairy

  3. Flax seeds, chia seeds, and walnuts

The order I’ve listed these in is important.  The best form of omega-3 fatty acids comes from fish, meat, eggs and dairy.  By “best” I mean that the omegas are more bioavailable (I.e. In a form that’s readily used by your body).  Omega-3’s from nuts and seeds are good choices too (they make great snacks), but less so because they are not as bioavailable.  The point is, don’t skip out of the fish, meat, and eggs because that’s where you’re going to get the most anti-aging and weight-loss benefits.

Okay, there’s one last thing I want to reveal today and this one’s a biggie.  Here’s the deal: If you’ve been exercising (or thinking about exercising), don’t you dare do another workout until you read this first.  If you make this next mistake, you’re really on the fast-track to premature aging (and making it almost impossible to get your leanest!)  You’ll discover why on the next page…
