Eat More Fat To Get Thin!
For years we’ve been told to eat a low-fat diet if we want to lose weight, but perhaps we’ve been doing it wrong all long. Mark Hyman, author of “Eat Fat, Get Thin” says that in order for you to lose weight, you have to eat a diet high in fat. Sounds shocking, but eating the right types of fat can cause you to lose fat more successfully.
There are good fats and there are bad fats. Eating burgers, donuts, and sweets are the types of fats that you should avoid. Hyman believes that 70-80% of your diet should be plant foods, such as vegetables, whole grains, beans, and fruits. He doesn’t eat much meat or dairy and avoids foods that are high in sugar and refined carbs.
There are plenty of foods that are plant based, which can be great substitutes for the foods that you love. The problem with diets is that people look at diets as temporary, but when you’re trying to lose weight and keep it off, you should begin by making small changes that can reap permanent results such as, weight loss.
