By  |  0 Comments

If you feel unhappy with your weight it is easy to make radical decisions, and try to cut out whole food groups. Reducing your intake of some foods is a vital part of changing your life, forming an important part of a regime that has to include both diet and exercise. But the most important thing, with so much advice around, and much of it contradictory, is that you find a healthy balance, and that your efforts to improve your body image do not cause you to overstretch yourself and permanently damage your health.

Finding the right intake of fat is vital for making sure that you lose weight in a healthy manner. Read on for our advice on the best ways to balance your body’s needs.

Is fat the worst thing?

It feels as if we have all known to be scared of fat forever. Some scientific articles published ever since the 1960s cast it as the most important factor in heart disease, and the thing we should be most afraid of. However, we now know other foods eaten instead of fatty food, especially those containing high sugar, can also be greatly unhealthy. There is a long history of contention as to which group contributes more to obesity, with both being found in cheap, convenient foods which provide a lot of energy.

However, storing fat is healthy and natural. Our ancestors, living with food uncertainty and never sure when they would next eat, evolved to be able to store food supplies as fat to keep them going through long periods where food was hard to come by. Where serious issues can start is with foods which set off our bodies’ feeling of scarcity, and desire to eat as much as possible. This can be found especially with un-nutritious food. This is most seriously an issue with free sugars, sugar which is added to food or found in natural fruit juices. These free sugars are tied to weight gain and tooth loss.

How can you learn the right level of fat for your diet?

A diet with a high level of natural fats and oils from nuts, in large nutty salads, has been proclaimed as one of the best diets for keeping high neuroplasticity. There is no doubt that fats in meats and nuts in moderation with a lot of vegetables can lead to good results for the vast majority of people. High levels of red meat are a well-known hazard which it is good to cut down in your diet. One way to improve both your diet and lifestyle is to go on a Fat Camp from Prestige Bootcamp. This will let you meet experts who can give you the best advice for your unique situation and body.

One way to reduce both your weight and your carbon footprint is to look into reducing your meat intake. Write a food diary for a week of everything you eat in your normal days. Keep track of how much meat you eat. If you have meat every day at present try planning to have one day a week when you know you will have time where you go out of your way not to eat meat.
