Dieting, as we know it today, was defined as a set course of foods, as early as the 14th century.
Back then it was used to describe deprivation or punishment for prisoners, such as a bread and water diet.
Funny that today it seems to have the same feeling as a form of punishment.
Let’s take a look at what it may mean to you.
The “D” in the word “DIET” I say stands for DEPRIVATION.
As you deprive yourself of all the tasty foods and healthy saturated fats.
And I am sure you may have been told by many “trusted” experts that saturated fats will increase your risk of heart disease and raise your cholesterol.
While I am not a doctor newer research is disproving this notion. In fact, you need them, and here are just a few examples of what recent research is showing why you need saturated fat…
Saturated fat plays a key role in your cardiovascular health. The addition of saturated fat to your diet may reduce the levels lipoprotein that correlates strongly with your risk for heart disease.
Saturated fat is required for calcium to be effectively incorporated into your bone.
Saturated fat has been shown to protect your liver from alcohol and medications, including drugs commonly used for pain and arthritis.
For proper function of your lungs the airspaces should be coated with a thin layer. The fat content of this layer is 100% saturated fatty acids.
When you replace saturated fats with other types of fat, it may cause you breathing difficulties.
Did you know that your brain is mainly made of fat and cholesterol?
And the largest portion of the fatty acids in the brain are actually saturated.
When you go on a diet that limits healthy saturated fats, you may be robbing your brain of the raw materials it needs to function at its peak.
Certain saturated fats, like the ones found in butter, leaf lard, coconut oil and palm oil may be needed to provide your body with the proper nerve signaling including the release of the right amount insulin.
The saturated fats found in butter and coconut oil play key roles that you may need to provide a strong immune system.
The “I” in the word “DIET” I say stands for IGNORE.
You simply can’t ignore your body when something is not right. By taking a prescription to control your symptoms does in no means correct the real problem.
Studies are showing that the right type of dieting may be the best way for you to try to correct the real underlying problem.
The “E” in the word “DIET” I say stands for EXHAUST.
Almost all low fat diets combine an exercise routine in order for you to lose weight.
So if you are like most people, you start a diet at the same time you try exercising to exhaustion.
This makes starting a diet for you even harder.
On the right high fat diet that I promote at http://dayssun.com/thank-you-for-signing-up/ I don’t recommend starting this diet with an intense exercising routine.
You may naturally start to move and exercise more on this diet as you notice a huge increase in your energy levels.
The “T” in the word “DIET” I say stands for TORCHER.
You fight cravings, never feel satisfied, eat bland foods, cut a ton of calories out of your diet till you are nearly starving to death and then top that off with exercising to exhaustion.
Not what I would call a successful diet if you want to lose weight and keep it off.
