I wanna take a minute to talk about fats. For the longest time, people have been dieting to lose weight, and immediately say to themselves “well, if I want to lose fat, then I should eat fat free things right?”
WRONG. Eating healthy fats do not make you gain weight. In fact, there are only three things in this world that the human body needs to survive:
- healthy fats
What is a healthy fat? Healthy fats can be found in things like fish, lean organic meat, nuts, olive oil, avocado, organic eggs, etc. UNhealthy fats are found in things like candy, deserts, pizza, junk food, etc.
So what is it exactly that makes us gain weight? I’ll tell you. It is SUGAR and STARCHY FOODS that make us gain weight. Our bodies need neither refined sugar nor starch to survive. Natural sugars from things like fruit and berries are ok.
So think about this the next time you’re grocery shopping and find yourself making a bee line for the fat-free section. Check the ingredients again, and try going for sugar free.
