We are all constantly faced with how to lose weight and what to eat to get rid of our unwanted fat. Many times we are caught in the dilemma of what is fat and what is not fat, so, therefore, it must be added to our shopping list. However, often when we are faced with choices, many of us just give in and end up buying the next item on the list, adding to the pile of unwanted fat that is already there.
Fat and fat-free are two very different things.
Fat has to be eliminated but the word fat does not mean that the food that we want to consume is not good for our bodies. We only have to be cautious when the word fat appears in the words we use. Generally, it is better to use the word fat-free rather than fat when we are referring to food that does not contain any fat at all.
The word fat-free is very much necessary in today’s society, as food is available which is extremely rich in fat and does not contain any nutritional value whatsoever. The first step in getting rid of fat is to make sure that we consume food that is not fatty.
So what should we do if we want to eat fatty foods?
The thing that I personally like about the concept of eating fatty foods is that it promotes good eating habits rather than bad ones. Also, we can learn more about healthy eating from these foods. We will learn that fatty foods are very much associated with heart disease, hypertension, etc., I think that these are very good facts to know as it will help us to take proper care of the body. However, we will need to learn that these types of foods are not good for our health. We will have to pay close attention to the sources of these fats and how these fats are obtained from the food that we eat. With this knowledge, we will also learn that fatty foods are very much associated with high cholesterol levels, which can lead to cardiac arrest, heart disease, stroke, etc., etc.,
So we know what to eat but there is much more to know. We can obtain the best diet from books like David Doushee’s The Food Guide Pyramid. There are books about diet about our diet but we can learn a lot from books like The Food Guide Pyramid. The Food Guide Pyramid is a guide that recommends a balanced diet which is low in saturated fat, high in unsaturated fats, and high in complex carbohydrates. The Food Guide Pyramid has made many recommendations on foods that we can have. We can obtain this food pyramid with a free book called Eat Right Guide Book from the American Heart Association.
The Food Guide Pyramid is a guide that recommends a balanced diet, but we need to know that not all these recommendations are accurate. For instance, in the book the olive oil is given a very high rank. This is because it says that olive oil is the best oil for cooking. But it has been shown that olive oil actually contains higher levels of total cholesterol as well as cholesterol, especially LDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is considered to be bad cholesterol. It is very much associated with the risk of heart disease. So we know that the book is not very helpful.
There are also other recommendations on the food pyramid where there are foods like:
* nuts (almonds, pistachio, cashew)
* dark chocolate
Although the book also advises us that these foods are good for us, when we do not consume these foods, we can find ourselves with heart disease. But we also need to understand that not all foods are bad for our health. The book only recommends foods that are safe for us to consume. Other foods can be bad for our health, but there are also foods that we can use as main meal replacements.
The Food Guide Pyramid is not a law, but it is a recommended way of life. We need to know that the book is not a law, and the Food Guide Pyramid is just a way for us to be informed. Therefore we need to respect the book and know that some foods can be better as meal replacements, and some foods can be bad for our health.
