High Fat, No Sugar Diet
Although most dieters are used to following a low-fat, high-carb diet to lose weight, this approach is often unsuccessful. Reducing your fat intake is the most common recommendation to lose weight, but doing the opposite could actually help you achieve your target weight more easily.
Fat for Satiety and Energy
To be successful with your low-carb eating plan, it is important that you increase your fat intake. As you reduce your carb intake by avoiding or reducing your consumption of breads, pasta, potatoes, sugar and fruits, your body will switch from relying on carbohydrates as its main source of energy to using fat.
Eating enough fat will help make the transition easier for your body to ensure that you have all the energy you need. Moreover, fat will keep you feel satisfied with your low-carb diet. Not only does fat add a lot of enjoyable flavors to a meal, but it also promotes satiety, which means that you will be able to spontaneously reduce your calorie intake and lose weight without having to deprive yourself.
Too Much Fat
If you go overboard with your fat consumption, it is possible that you will experience a plateau with your weight loss. If ever you are not able to lose weight, the first thing to do is to look at your carb intake to ensure that you are staying within your recommended target.
If your carb intake is appropriate, you may be eating too many calories from either protein or fat.
For some people, the satiety signals may not work perfectly and some low-carb dieters may still be overeating.
For most low-carb dieters, including 100g to 150g of protein from poultry, fish or meat and 1 to 2 tbsp. of butter, cream, olive oil or coconut oil at each meal is the right amount to promote weight loss.
Fat and Your Health
Low-fat diets are often recommended as the healthiest diet, but for many people, a low-carb, high-fat diet works best. The best way to determine the best approach for you is to give it a try.
Many dieters following a low-carb, high-fat diet are able to not only lose weight, but also reduce their triglycerides and blood sugar levels and increase their protective HDL cholesterol levels.
Fat in Your Low-Carb Diet
If you want to reach and maintain your goal weight more easily with your low-carb diet, avoid foods marketed as being low-fat or fat-free, because they often contain more carbohydrate per serving and are not as satiating.
Each of your meals should also include extra fat that you can use for cooking your foods, such as coconut oil, olive oil or butter.
You can also use olive oil to prepare vinaigrette for your salad or to drizzle over your vegetables or add a dollop of butter to your non-starchy vegetables.
Avocado, cream, nuts and nut butter are also good options to get enough fat on your low-carb diet.
What is carbs and why do I have to eliminate it from my diet?
“Carbs” or carbohydrates comes in different forms, such as sugar, bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, chips, crisps, processed food, including boxed cereals, sugary drinks and beer.
If you are serious about losing weight, you need to eliminate these foods, because when you consume foods high in carbohydrates, the food is converted to sugar in the body and the pancreas releases insulin, which store the sugar as energy in the form of fat. That is why insulin is called the fat storing hormone.
It is not Fat that makes you fat, but sugar and hidden sugar in processed food as well as all forms of starch.
