For decades we did everything we could to cut fat out of our diet. The end result is that we were getting fatter and fatter in the western world.

Dietary fat was cut out of our foods in an effort to reduce bad cholesterol and prevent heart disease.
Instead we gained weight, and with it created a slew of health problems including more cases of heart disease than ever before. It’s time to slim down, protect our bodies, and rev up our metabolisms. And there’s no better way to do it than to bring back the healthy fats.

As it turns out, our bodies need fat to let go of body fat.
Without the addition of fatty foods to our diet, and particularly when we go on a low calorie, low fat diet, our metabolism goes way down. The body goes into starvation mode and burns as little energy as possible. That’s why people often feel cold and tired when they are on this type of diet. It’s hard to find the energy to get up and move because the body things it’s time to conserve as much energy as possible. The end result is that even while consuming much less calories, the scale won’t budge.

The key to cranking up that metabolism is to make sure you eat enough food and that you include plenty of healthy fats.
A good rule of thumb is to get at least 30% of your calories from sources of healthy fats like olive oil, grass-fed butter, avocados, almonds, or organic nut and seed butters to name a few. That’s right, you can indulge in delicious full-fat foods and still lose weight.

If you’re not intermittent fasting, make sure you eat early in the day and include some healthy fat with your first meal. Eating early insures that your body’s metabolism starts cranking into high gear and keeps burning calories all the long. This breakfast with healthy fats also provides you with the energy to keep going strong all day. You won’t feel cold and sluggish. Instead you’ll find yourself full of energy, ready to tackle whatever live throws your way. You’re going to want to move more and get through your workouts.

Moving more and staying active throughout the day while refueling your body when you get hungry, will ensure that your metabolism keeps burning high all day long. When that happens you’ll be able to eat enough healthy food to stay satisfied and still lose excess body fat.
