Eat Fat To Get Flat

It seems like an oxymoron but the truth is, you can eat high fat and get a flat stomach. So many people are wondering how to get rid of that belly flab and the answer is right in front of them.

Eat high fat

Here are some foods that are quite high in fat content that can help you have that flatter stomach and a trimmer figure.

Remember to lower your carbohydrate intake and raise your fat intake, and you will burn off the flab that is unsightly.

Eating more fat is extremely important to reduce the overall desire for sugar. Sugar is a huge problem in today’s world. We see high rates of diabetes and heart disease, and the culprit is sugar.

When you ingest more fat, the urge for sugar dissipates. So eat more fat and you will want less sugar.

Try enjoying more of these foods:

Nuts

Nuts of all kinds are a great snack item and they are also great at trimming the flab from your body. Nuts are high in fat content, and they are also high in protein and fiber. The best nuts to eat are raw nuts. Stay clear of processed nuts which could have additives that are not good for you. So eat some:

  • Walnuts
  • Macadamias
  • Almonds
  • Pecans
  • and others

Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate has many benefits, but it must be dark chocolate and not milk chocolate. Look at the cacao content and try to purchase dark chocolate with a content level of 72% or higher.

Also, just look at the fat content and carb content. Make sure the fat content is higher than the carbohydrate content.

It is a great way to satisfy that sweet tooth in a healthy way.

Avocados

Avocados are extremely high in fats, but they are the healthy fats. Plus, avocados are full of vitamins and minerals. They are one of nature’s super foods.

Try topping salads or sandwiches with avocados. You will be happy you did.

One more thing… Avocados are a great means of appetite control. So if you are feeling hungry, snack on a couple slices of avocado.

Coconut

Here is another super food given to us by Mother Nature. Coconut has high levels of good fat content. There are so many varieties of coconut products and ways you can use coconut.

  • Make recipes using coconut flour
  • Use coconut oil on your skin or for cooking
  • Coconut milk is much healthier than normal milk
  • Try drinking some refreshing coconut water

Grass fed Beef

Red meat is only bad for you if the cow is fed an improper diet. Cows have been getting fed hormones and grains that do effect the people eating the meat. But searching out fully organic, grass fed beef is a healthy meat to eat. Grass fed beef has high levels of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) which is a healthy fat that helps humans burn fat and build muscle.

So go ahead and eat a grass fed hamburger.

Grass fed Butter

Stay clear of margarine! Real butter is a whole lot safer for you and better yet, find grass fed butter. Yes, it is high in fat, but don’t let that have you assuming you will get fat from that fat. It will help you lose belly fat because it starts the fat burning process in your system.

While grass fed butter is higher priced, it is well worth it in health value for your body.

Organic eggs

It is important that you purchase eggs from organic farms where the chickens are allowed to roam and eat a natural diet.

Eggs are high in protein and the egg yolks have so many nutrients that a human needs in their diet.

  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Phosphorus
  • Zinc
  • Thiamin
  • B6
  • Folate
  • B12
  • Panthothenic acid
  • Vitamins A, D, E, and K

Conclusion

So as you can see, you can eat fat to get thin. It does work. The flab will disappear by ingesting a high fat and low carb diet.

I suggest you give it a go and come back and tell me your thoughts after following this plan.

The Many Benefits Of Curcumin

I have found that curcumin is a miracle of Mother Nature. It is a chemical that is produced by several species

regenalife curcumin

The best curcumin sold

of plants with the primary plant being turmeric. It is a member of the ginger family. And while no actual guaranteed results have been shown, many cancer patients have shown great results when taking curcumin supplements.

I want to take you through a list of the many other benefits of this plant based chemical:

People in India have realized the benefits for many years

As I stated earlier, turmeric is the main holder of curcumin, and people of India would regularly ingest turmeric for relief of inflammation. It shows a huge antioxidant effect. But turmeric itself does not have high amounts of curcumin in it, so they would have to ingest large quantities. Now that technology has provided a way to separate the curcumin from the plant, people can get the benefits without having to ingest as much.

Curcumin has shown to be a benefit to our brains

  • It is a natural anti-depressant
  • It protects the brain from aging processes and slows the onset of Alzheimers
  • Studies have shown that curcumin has great possibilities of treating neurological issues
  • Relieves stress and anxiety

and so much more.

A list of other possible curcumin benefits

The possible benefits seem to be endless as scientists look closer at this miracle plant based chemical. Let me just start listing all that is being researched or has been found as benefits:

  1. Cancers: Liver, pancreatic, breast, colon, lung, prostate, brain, leukemia
  2. Microbial infections: It’s anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial
  3. Arthritis
  4. Liver damage
  5. Diabetes
  6. Dry eyes
  7. Weight management
  8. Metal toxicity
  9. Gastric ulcers
  10. Traumatic brain injuries

Curcumin will stimulate your gallbladder.

Curcumin fights multiple sclerosis and psoriasis.

Curcumin is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. So it is a great defense against HIV, Hepatitis and other blood born diseases.

Curcumin defeats toxins and destroys the bad effects of fluoride.

Curcumin has shown a great support in women’s health.

Curcumin protects kidneys.

Overall, it seems that curcumin is the supplement the human race needs consistently.

But like any good thing, taking curcumin in too high of doses can be bad for you. So you need to follow the directions and take it properly. It has been found that it is good to consume it with some coconut milk as the coconut milk helps the curcumin react quickly and the body accepts it evenly.

Where to get Curcumin

Not all curcumin supplements are created equal. You want to know there are no GMOs, MSGs, sugars, oils, caffeine or other ingredients that could be harmful.

I have found the very best curcumin supplement on the market. I highly recommend that you give it a try. Just simply sign up as a customer and purchase your first curcumin supplement order. I know that you will want to start using it on a regular basis.

You can get that curcumin here.

Is Meat Bad?

It is an ongoing debate, and one that does not have a definitive answer.

For some people, meat is terrible while for others, meat is a necessity.

There have been a variety of studies, but many of those studies do not take into account other health situations. Sure, you may be studying a group of men who are eating meat, but what else are they eating? Are they taking vitamins? Are they exercising? Do they smoke or drink?

So many of the studies are skewed, so we cannot honestly trust those studies.

I recently read an excellent article by Dr. Mark Hyman on this subject. You can see it here.

Dr. Hyman tells how many people who do not eat meat at all like Buddhists and 7th Day Adventists show great signs of long life. But, so do some “die-hard” meat eaters do to like people on the Paleo diet.

My meat eating views

Personally, I do support the Paleo diet meat eating views. But, the rest of your diet and the types of meat you ingest are quite important.

If you are a strong vegetarian, more power to you, but you do need to make sure you are getting the needed protein your body requires.

Many meats that you can purchase in fast food joints and even in grocery stores have been fed high amounts of steroids, hormones, antibiotics and we have no idea what other items they are fed that could be laced with chemicals.

High fat – low carbs

As you know, I am adamant about the high fat and low carb diet plan. The best way to achieve this is with meat… but what meats should you buy?

All organic grass fed meats

It is your best choice to find organic, grass fed meats. Yes, the prices may be higher, but your health is more important than the price of a pound of meat.

Another priority is to not just eat meat, but add a staple of healthy fruits and vegetables to your diet… And exercise!

But, they say meat causes heart disease

Dr. Hyman points out a fact that is not mentioned in the studies linking meat to heart disease. The disease comes from saturated fats and somehow these testers put the blame on meat, but the saturated fats linked to heart disease do not even come from meat.

They come from sugar and carbohydrates.

Now you do get saturated fat from meat, but you get a bad saturated fat from that greasy cheeseburger you bought at a fast food place and okay saturated fats when you have a grass-fed burger.

The Paleo diet preaches meat, but with it are fruit, vegetables, seeds and nuts leaving out the processed foods, dairy products and grains.

How to eat a safe meat diet

Let’s summarize so you can have a simple checklist to make sure you are eating a proper meat diet.

  1. Only buy organic grass fed meats and make meat the side on your plate, not the main course.
  2. Stay away from any, and all processed meats.
  3. Preparation of meat is important. Slow cooking meat is the best at lower temperatures. Some people think that high heat is the way with meat, and they are actually creating more toxic substances by doing so.
  4. Make vegetables the main course. Eat a lot of healthy vegetables and throw in some fruits too.

Final Thoughts

So, my opinion is: enjoy your meat… but only grass fed meat.

If you are a vegetarian, I am not trying to change you, but make sure you are getting the needed protein and you can do so with supplements.

Where do vegetarians get protein?

I want to share some great places for vegetarians to get their needed protein:

  • Red Lentils give 18 grams of protein per cup
  • Chickpeas have 12 grams of protein per cup
  • Black beans give 15 grams of protein per cup
  • Nuts have high protein levels
  • Tofu has 11 grams in 4 ounces
  • Quinoa has a high level of protein

So if you are a vegetarian, make sure you have these in your diet.

If you need any help, feel free to contact me and we will get you on the best diet for you… With, or without meat.

Have a great day.
