If you are like almost 70% of the adults in the U.S. you may be overweight or obese.
You may also have health issues such as high blood pressure, heart disease, be saddled with pre or full blown type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer or some other age related disease like the almost 70% of the U.S. adult population.
Sometime in your life your trusted health care practitioner has probably suggested a low fat diet for you.
So what does your diet look like?
About 80% of the grocery store space is filled with processed foods of all types.
From processed flour grain products to added processed sugars and other ingredients you can’t even pronounce.
In answer to the question above, what does your diet look like, do you really even know what you are eating?
Many well-meaning nutritionists teach you the importance of reading food labels.
But the easiest way to eat healthy is to stick with foods that need no food label at all.
You would be hard pressed to find a long list of ingredients on a grass fed steak or organic cabbage on their food labels.
And if you followed your trusted health care practitioner, in the past or present, and stuck to a low fat diet in order to lose weight and get healthy, why does or did it feel like torture to you?
Yes, this type of diet can help you lose weight and may improve your health numbers some, but is it really a path you want to be on your whole life?
I have said it many times that eating carbs is like playing golf with a handicap.
You see, before you see your health numbers improve or lose weight, you must first burn through your carbs to start burning your body fat.
And only then if your body feels it is starving.
You may have felt what I mean on your current or last low fat diet before you see the scale move down.
It seems many people, maybe you, have said that if I have to give up my bread and other processed foods I would rather die.
But a very low carb (only eating organic vegetables), limited quality protein (like finished grass fed and organic meats and plenty of healthy fats (grass fed and organic) is a very tasty, satisfying and healthy diet that may finally help you reach your health and weight loss goals faster.
This is not the high protein diets that have become popular in recent years.
This is a high fat diet getting 50 to 80% of your calories in your meals from healthy fats.
You might think it would be hard to add a lot of fat to your diet.
Here is the deal, you could eat over a cup of green beans, a cup of mushrooms, a cup of collard greens and over a cup of cucumbers and still be under your limit of carbs for a day.
In other words, you could almost eat all the vegetables you want, and still be OK on a high fat diet.
A cup of green beans is around 44 carb calories but one tablespoon of organic grass fed cow butter would contain around 102 fat calories.
And who doesn’t like lots of melted butter on their green beans?
A 6 oz. steak contains 254 calories, but 117 of those calories are fat calories.
So if you were to have a 6 oz. steak, cup of green beans with a couple of tablespoons of butter poured over them. You would be getting 181 carb and protein calories and a whopping 321 fat calories.
Now that you see a picture of a high fat diet meal, it doesn’t sound like starving anymore.
Nor does it sound like you are sacrificing flavors.
Just need to remember to NOT eat any potatoes or bread with this meal.
You could add grass fed cow sour cream or cottage cheese to add even more fat and flavor.
What this type of meal does it train your body to start burning fat for fuel and when this happens, you stay satisfied in-between meals.
In fact, there are times my wife and me miss a meal and don’t realize it until later.
That is because we don’t get the food cravings or sugar crashes anymore.
