7. Eat Fat, Get Thin
“Ketones are an efficient and effective fuel for human physiology, without increasing the production of free radicals. Ketosis allows for non fluctuating energy throughout the day, as well as enhanced brain function and possible resistance to malignancy.” — Dr. David Perlmutter, MD
We have been lied to by food companies.
We have been scared into thinking eating fat makes you fat, that it “gives” you “bad” cholesterol.
It is a big, fat lie.
Eating fat is not only healthy, but can support brain function, help with insulin resistance, Type 2 Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome, cholesterol, depression, migraines, seizures, dementia, Alzheimer’s, autophagy, cancer prevention, and much much more.
In North America, we eat far too much processed foods, not enough plants, and healthy sources of fats.
If you want to lose weight, embrace healthy sources of fat, as a staple in your diet.
By increasing your fat intake:
you are full for a long period of time
You don’t get energy crashes
You can go for hours without food
You wont get hangry
Don’t blame the butter for what the bread did. Embrace fat. It is your friend.
