YES! You heard me right!
The reason most people cannot loose the extra fat They keep trying to loose is because they are not eating enough fat (the good kind).
we talked yesterday about our body being “built to survive” by conserving and retaining as much nutrients it feels that it needs to not go into “starvation” mode…
Here is the *key*…
When you give your body enough of what it needs and desires (healthy fats) it will begin to release and let go of the excess (unhealthy fats) that it is holding onto for an “emergency situation”.
I want to give you a list of Healthy Fat Foods that you will want to add more of your diet and also give you some insights on some unhealthy ones that you can avoid.
There is a MASSIVE difference between healthy and unhealthy fat foods. In-order to fully understand this we must first know the difference between the different types of fats.
According to helpguide.org are 4 main types of fats: (http://www.helpguide.org/life/healthy_diet_fats.htm)
First… the GOOD FATS!!!
#1 – Monounsaturated fats:
-Liquid at room temperature
-Primary sources: Plant oils (ex: Canola oil, peanut oil and olive oil), Avocado, Nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, and pecans and Seeds (pumpkin and sesame)
#2 – Polyunsaturated fats:
-Liquid at room temperature (and cold temperature)
Primary sources: Sunflower, corn, soybean, flaxseed oil, flax seeds and fish.
*Include Omega-3 (this is important for later) which are anti-inflammatory (great for endurance sports…i.e. life!)
and onto the BAD FATS…
#3- Saturated fats (THE DEVIL!, j/k these are HORRIBLE)
-Usually solid at room temperature (high melting point)
The reason a “High melting point” is important… this is a key to watch out for… it means your body is going to have to work REALLY REALLY REALLY hard and get really HOT (temperature wise) before these fats can be used as a source of fuel.
-Primary sources: Animal products: red meat, whole milk, poultry, coconut oil, palm oil (and foods made with these oils).
Saturated fats raise your LDL (Low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol and increases your risk of CHD (coronary heart disease).
#4- Trans Fats (these are also HORRIBLE!)
– These are created by heating liquid veg oils in the presence of hydrogen gas, a process called hydrogenation. This process makes foods less likely to “spoil” (great for manufactures) HORRIBLE for you!
-Primary source: Vegetable shortenings, margarine, crackers, candies, cookies, fried foods, baked goods, and other processed foods.
-These also raise your LDL and heighten risk of CHD.
Along with H20, Oxygen and FAT (healthy types) to really be at PEAK PERFORMANCE our bodies also need structural alignment and quality stretching.
For the structural alignment I highly recommend Pete Egoscue (egoscue.com) I’ve had the privilege of knowing and working with Pete and his team for over 11 years.
His team is dedicated to ensure that you are able to be structurally fit and functioning at Peak Performance.
I have seen “minor miracles” happen at Pete’s offices and have consistently received raving fan type feedback from anyone and everyone that I have recommended working with them.
PS: If you liked the Ph Miracle, you might want to Also check out Pete’s book… “Pain Free” : Pain Free: A Revolutionary Method for Stopping Chronic Pain
It has some INCREDIBLE insights on the structural alignment of your body and what you can do to achieve immediate and lasting RESULTS!
