Some of the things you think you know that just aint
Remember eating Fresh and Pure food is all you need
Fat does Not Make You Fat.
One of the other huge myths is that fat makes you fat.
It doesn't. When you eat fat, your body has to break
it down into its little building blocks and then absorb
the pieces. The fat you have in your body is not the
same as the fat you eat. In fact, the fat naturally
found in whole foods is fat you actually need for your
body to function properly.
Essential Fatty Acids are the name given to the types
of fat that you need to eat. This is why they are called
essential. Your body cannot make them, you must eat
them. And these essential fatty acids are only found
with fat that naturally occurs in whole food. What are
these essential fatty acids used for in your body? Well,
Every cell in your body is partly made up of these
essential fatty acids. To breathe, to have your heart
beat, to run, walk, think, to make hormones, to remember
anything, you need essential fatty acids for all of
these and basically, to live. And if you don't eat them
in the food you eat, your body will not function properly.
And the only place you can find essential fatty acids
is in food that has naturally occurring fat in them.
So if you try and cut fat out of your body, you will
actually be causing harm and not really be doing anything
to get rid of the fat already in your body.
So what is one of the main causes of being fat. Sugar
and refined carbohydrates. NO, not again with the sugar,
you might be saying. Yes, Sugar and refined carbohydrates
are really one of the main causes in many problems we
as humans face today. You can pretend it is not true,
you can believe it is not true, but no matter how you
try and avoid it, sugar and refined carbohydrates will
still negatively impact you weather you want them to
or not. And whether or not you believe they will or
How does sugar and refined carbohydrates make you fat?
It is really simple. You have a relatively set amount
of fat cells in your body. It is just a matter of how
big your fat cells are.
So what affects the size of your fat cells? Sugar.
Because glucose is what is stored in your fat cells.
And there is a little "gate" that controls
the movement of sugar in and out of your fat cells.
And the key to this little gate is insulin. Insulin
is the key that opens the gates to the fat cells and
allows excess glucose in the blood to go into the fat
cells. So if you never eat anything that raises your
blood sugar levels beyond normal, your body will not
release insulin, and you will not get bigger fat cells.
The body releases insulin to lower blood sugar levels
that are too high. So Sugar and refined carbohydrates
are actually what are one of the biggest contributing
factors to why people are overweight.
The ironic part of all of this, is that when you get
food that has "artificially" been made to
be low fat, you know what they usually put in when they
take out the fat? Sugar. They usually add the very thing
that contributes to people being fat when they are trying
to make something that many people think is helping
them not be fat. Fat does not make you fat. In fact,
you need the essential fatty acids found in fat to live.
Sugar is one of the biggest contributing factors to
what makes you fat.
