All your life you have been on high carbohydrate low fat diets which caused your waistline to expand.
Fat is the most calorie dense food. So eliminating fat would seem to cut a ton of calories.
That being said, hopefully you are beginning to understand by now that eating fat doesn’t necessarily make you fat.
You see the human body is an organism far too advanced that it can be that simple.
It is what you eat your fat with that makes you fat.
It can be explained by one meal choice as an example.
Let’s take a steak for this example.
So I ask you:
Which meal is the most filling, healthy and satisfying?
A steak with plenty of melted grass fed cow butter poured on a potato?
A steak with plenty of melted grass fed cow butter poured on the asparagus?
This one choice can make a big difference in whether your waistline grows or shrinks.
That is why there is so much misinformation out there. At first look it seems complicated, but it is really pretty simple.
If you were to ask me a couple of years ago, I would have picked the steak and potatoes.
It would seem to be the logical choice since the potato is much more filling than the asparagus.
It is simple meal choices like these that cause this one meal to expand your waistline.
One wrong item thrown into your meal can be deadly to your diet.
Let’s take a step back and think about this.
If you picked the steak and potatoes, here is what you did with that choice.
Your steak and melted grass fed cow butter have plenty of the dense fat calories, but that potato is high in starchy carbs.
When you eat this meal your body is immediately going to process the potato first because carbs are much easier for your body to access.
Now all the good fats you just consumed are not needed at the moment, so your body stores all that fat for an emergency when you are starving.
So this healthy sounding meal is a wolf hiding in sheep’s clothing.
But it gets worse.
You feel satisfied after you eat, but carbs burn much faster than fat and spike your blood sugar and blood glucose.
This is what is causing the explosion of the many diseases today.
If you picked the steak and asparagus, congratulations!
4 asparagus spears only has a glycemic load of 1.
So the carbs are not enough to spike your blood sugar or blood glucose.
There is not enough to fuel your body.
So the only fuel left is the fat and protein.
Fats have little to no effect on blood sugar and insulin levels but protein affects both your blood sugar and insulin.
I hope you understand this is NOT a low carb high protein diet. You must limit your protein.
Protein can be turned into glucose via a process called gluconeogenesis and excessive protein consumption can prevent you from burning fat.
So as long as your meal has more fat calories, 60 – 70%, of your overall total meal calories, your body will burn the fat for fuel.
Once the fat from the meal is burnt up, unlike carbs, the body just keeps burning fat, only now it is your body fat.
So with one meal choice you turned your body into a body fat burning machine and you had a filling, tasty and satisfying meal that WILL last until your next meal.
