Everybody says that fat is bad as it clogs your arteries. Well, you’ll be amazed to know that in fact it is not the fat which clogs your arteries but it is the carbohydrates that do the damage. Yes! Especially the refined carbohydrates from wheat, corn, and all the sugary foods.
Everybody need fats to function well. If we cut down fats from our diet then the first thing that gets affected is our immune system. Body’s cells and the gut need fats to work efficiently, and cutting down fats from the diet won’t help. May be in the initial stages of a fat free diet you will lose a couple of kilos but those kilos will reappear when you return back to your original diet. That is why most diets fail, and we lose our desire to go back on diets again.
Actually it is a reverse science. When we eat fats, especially good quality ones, we burn fats faster. Why? Well, our primary fat burning hormones like thyroid, growth hormone, testosterone and insulin growth factor all feed on (good) fats. By cutting down these fats we cut down the life force of our brain and fuel for the body. Never ever cut down fats to lose weight and never rush to get results when you are in the process of losing weight.
