6 Fatty Foods That Help You Slim Down
You are NOT what you eat. If we were what we ate, then people who ate lots of hot dogs and pork chops would be solid walls of muscle. People who ate lots of pasta would be stringy and fat-free. People who ate lots of pecan pie would be Zooey Deschanel (sweet, but nutty and flaky). And people who ate a lot of fat would be fat.
Do you eat nuts?
Although nuts are calorically dense and contain a high amount of fat, I eat some nuts every day, and we include them in our kids’ lunchbox. Last week a new study in the Archives of Internal Medicine gave further evidence to support this tasty habit. It’s very easy to add nuts to your life. You can eat them as a snack; sprinkle them on salad, yogurt, pasta and cereal; add them to batters, stews and stir fried dishes—the options are endless.
2. Coconut Oil
The most common use of coconut oil is its use in weight loss. Although this may sound like an oxymoron at first, eating fat to lose weight, it is true— coconut oil increases the body’s metabolism. Many people have found that by adding about 4 tablespoons of coconut oil to their daily diet has helped them to lose a significant amount of weight and increase their energy level.
Honestly, there might be something slightly wrong with you if you don’t like avocado. We could happily eat it everyday — as long as it’s not a hot avocado … that’s just gross. Read on to find out things about the avocado you never knew. These are the reasons why you should grab one right now, cradle it, kiss it and thank it. Then eat it — or put it in on your face
4. Wild Salmon
Full of omega-3 fats (which are exactly about the best kind of fats you can eat), this fish tastes good because of its fatnes content. Fat molecules bear flavor from your scale to your palate, which makes every bite that much more satisfying. And of course salmon is also a solid root of protein, which helps the fish earn an A+ in sustainable energy.
5. Egg Yolks
Contrary to popular faith, eggs don’t appear to advance bad cholesterol or trigger heart disease, according to recent research that compared the effects of low- and high-egg diets. Eggs – yolks and all! – actually raise satiety that should (at least in theory) reduce overeating.
6. Hard, Full-Fat Cheeses
Despite the fact that cheese is frequently demonized for being high in fat and calories, science advises that full-fat, milk-based foods are undeserving of their rotten reputations. Somestudies even demonstrate that people who cut back on calories while increasing their ingestion of full-fat dairy lose weight more quickly than people who only cut back on cals. Againand again, large-scale scientific reviews of existing research suggest that people who admit high-fat dairy foods in their diets are less likely to be overweight and obese. Research has even found that people who eat upward of five servings a week have less body fat, lower BMIs, and lower blood pressure than people who steer clear of dairy altogether. While more research is needed to understand exactly why, some theoriessuggest that dairy’s protein boosts satiety and its calcium binds to fatty acids to reduce fat absorption. There’s also reason to believe that a certain fatty acid found in aged cheeses and produced by gut bacteria when you eat high-fat dairy may speed up the metabolism and promote weight loss.
