A lot of people from all walks of like on a regular basis—including myself—may or may not at some point or another get caught up in the newest weight loss trend, or muscle-gaining techniques. In example, Acai Berries as a ‘wonder vitamin’ or drug to weight loss.
For some reason in the recent past, eating fatter to lose fat has been a growing ‘trend’. However, recent studies by an associate professor Matt Hulver at Virginia Tech and lead author recently published the significance of fat increase, counter weight loss, and the dangers of fat to our muscles and bodily functions.
With a fatter diet, easily comes more muscle restriction. It’s so important for our muscles to operate properly, not only to look ‘sexy’ but also to serve the purpose of transferring blood, sugars, salts, and proteins.
Adding 55% fat to your diet, ‘good’ or ‘bad’, will still most commonly have negative impact on any weight loss attempts. That is, because too much of any fat is not good for the body, and is unnecessary. More so, we should concentrate on important nutrients, such as proteins, calcium, other vitamins, and appropriate levels of sodium and glucose—not found well balanced in most fats, especially unhealthy ones as they are loaded.
Consider positively contributing to your metabolism processing, along with your workout routine related aspirations for weight loss. A recent publishing in the Biological Psychiatry shows that simply after one high-fat meal, your metabolism and body can begin to slow, and break down in muscle operations. This can even cause high blood pressure, and ultimately a heart attack as essential operations within the body to regulate chemicals, burn and utilize fat appropriately, and allocate sugar and salts suffer from undue interference.
With added-fat in your diet you will not only interfere and negatively impact your metabolism, sugar and salt levels, but also your mind. Diets high in unhealthy fats (and fats in general) can cause fatigue, laziness, lack of motivation, and even depression. While eating those 20 chicken wings may initially feel great and give us a mood boost, we may ultimately suffer than succeed in our object by having remorse for eating the unhealthy food, and also negatively impacting our already poor or less than desirable diet. While eating more healthy vegetables, meats, and carbs can positively contribute to our diet, it’s important to conduct research to study and learn the difference between what ‘good’ and ‘bad’ carbs are, and the same rules would apply for fat. Like anything in the realm of nutrition, what we consume can only be so beneficial within reasonable portions, and over intake of anything can be bad for the mind and body towards weight loss, and general health and wellness.
Avoid gaining up to an extra 11 lbs per year by reducing to remove unnecessary, unhealthy fats from your diet. Consider the value, and most realistic substitutes for your current sugar, salt, and fatty basic foods, groups, and unhealthy habits.
