I know this may sound confusing to you but eating fats also helps fat loss.
In fact your body holds fat if you don’t eat fats.
Not because your body needs all that excess fat, it is because your body will store the fats you consume at your meals if it has carbohydrates to burn.
I have been searching the internet about exercise and diet and it seems there is a big push for carbs and protein when working out.
But this may all be based on myths.
Here is why…
When you are eating high carbs and high protein before a workout you enter the workout at a disadvantage.
Here is how you can be at a huge advantage, but it doesn’t happen overnight.
If you start a very low high fat with moderate protein diet you will notice the first few days to a week or two tops you will not have an abundance of energy.
This is NOT because you are on a low carb high fat diet, it is because your body has learned over your lifetime to burn carbs for energy and to fuel your body and store the fats you eat.
You have to train your body to burn fat for fuel.
Notice I did not mention high protein.
Both protein and fat are essential for survival but your need for carbs in your diet…
It is important to limit your protein because protein affects both your blood sugar and insulin.
Because of this excessive protein consumed can prevent you from getting into ketosis, which is when your body burns fat for energy and fuel.
By getting into ketosis you are now a fat burner.
When you compare your fuel and energy for your workouts think about this important fact.
Burning carbs during your workouts gives your body access to about 2,500 carb calories, but burning fat during your workouts give your body access to about 50,000 fat calories.
That is a huge 95% calorie advantage going into a workout.
Recent studies are just now coming out showing athletes preform just as well on a low carb high fat diet as on a low fat high carb and protein diet.
But a low fat diet is very unhealthy as shown in this post http://dayssun.com/cocaine-and-cigarettes/
