Discover How Consuming These Two "Super Fats" Can Actually Help You Burn Off Unwanted Body Fat—Fats That Fight Fat: Yes, It's True
Hi, Joel here, Co-Founder of BioTrust Nutrition, and today I need to talk to you about a rather uncomfortable truth: the vast majority of good folks all around the world, perhaps just like you, are carrying a significant amount of excess weight.
Now, not only can this excess flab be demoralizing, carrying a devastating physical and emotional toll, but excess body fat is even SCARIER than you might imagine.
The fortunate news, however, is that in just a moment I’m going to show you exactly how you can begin to combat your body fat issues with REAL science, but before I do, you first have to understand…
The 3 pitfalls directly responsible for CAUSING excess fat…
Cause #1? The typically recommended low-fat, high-grain diet. For decades, grains and other high carbohydrate foods formed the base of the food pyramid and the foundation for a “healthy diet”. All the while, fats were demonized.
Unfortunately, these recommendations couldn’t be further from the path to a slimmer body. A diet high in wheat and other grain products inevitably leads to high blood sugar and poor sensitivity to the hormone insulin.2–4 In turn, poor insulin sensitivity has been shown to be a major cause of fat accumulation.5,6 Even worse, the more fat you gain, the worse your insulin sensitivity becomes… and thus the vicious cycle begins, often leading to out-of-control fat storage over time.7,8
Fats, on the other hand, are instrumental in the regulation of your overall hormonal balance, including many fat-burning hormones. When you understand how to choose the right fats, replacing high-carb items in your diet such as bread, bagels, muffins, baked goods, and pasta with more of these fat-burning, healthful “fatty foods”, you’ll be well on your way to weight loss.
Here are 7 of my top "fatty foods" for a lean body:
Whole Eggs, Nuts (such as almonds, pecans, walnuts, and cashews), Seeds (such as sunflower seeds and flaxseeds), Avocado, Olive Oil, Fatty Fish (for example, mackerel, tuna, salmon, and trout), and Coconut Oil.
Still, none of these 7 fats qualify as my #1 fat for a lean body, which stands head and shoulders above all of the previously mentioned fats in its ability to burn fat. You’ll want to make sure to consume plenty of this #1 fat-fighting fat daily, so be sure to keep reading as we’ll reveal exactly what it is and where you can find it in just a moment.
The second major cause of excess fat storage is increased levels of stress.
You see, when your body is under stress, it secretes a stress-coping hormone called cortisol. Unfortunately, increased cortisol levels have been directly linked to excess body fat.9,10 And it doesn’t take a whole lot to spike cortisol, either… simple subconscious worry and anxiety (which we all deal with to some degree), a busy schedule, and/or inadequate rest are enough to send cortisol levels soaring.
The third and final pitfall of increased fat stores is failing to consume effective levels of fat-fighting nutrients daily, particularly the #1 fat for a lean body, conjugated linoleic acid. While you probably haven’t heard of conjugated linoleic acid, it’s been around since the beginning of time as this “super fat” is actually a healthy and naturally occurring fat found in beef and other dairy products such as yogurt, milk, butter, and cheese.
Beyond that, and of prime importance to today’s conversation, conjugated linoleic acid has been linked to an array of health benefits--specifically its unique ability to burn fat. Few ingredients have undergone the level of scientific scrutiny that conjugated linoleic acid has.
