If you want to lose weight, you want to not eat low fat and non-fat foods.
That’s right, don’t be shy about fat: eat real-full-fat-foods!
Reasons to go full fat:
- Low and non-fat products tend to have more added sugar and other additives to make them taste good.
- They go through more processing so they deliver less nutrients that our bodies actually need.
- Low Fat and Non Fat products play with our head. When we eat something with those labels, we probably eat more of it because we think it’s safe for weight loss.
- There are several benefits to eating full fat foods, one of them being satiation. When you’ve got some good full fat as part of your meal, you will be less likely to overeat, and eat less frequently.
Some good sources of real, full fats include avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, full fat dairy products like yogurt, cream, cheeses (if you tolerate dairy products).
Portion wise, look at your thumb – that’s amount of full fat at each meal. And yes, it may not seem like much, and that’s okay. Weight loss requires the discomfort of change.
If you want to lose weight, enjoy the fats, while trusting your thumb!
