Eat Fat, Gain Fat = False & Enjoying the right fats is essential to fat loss, health, and SANEity

Listen



Note 1



The final essential part of SANE eating is enjoying enough Whole-Food Fats with your meals to ensure you stay full and satisfied. Aim for three to six servings per day of fats contained in whole foods.

Note 2



Whole-Food Fats are key. Oil is not a whole food. Natural oils are fine for cooking, but your focus should always be on whole foods.

Note 3



Nut Notes: Eat them raw to save money and your metabolism. Make sure they are not covered in inSANEity. Peanuts aren’t nuts…they are legumes. Eat them with Non-Starchy Vegetables or Nutrient-Dense Protein…do not eat them all by themselves.

SANE

Eat Fat, Burn Fat = True & SANE Fats are satisfying, therapeutic, and delicious!

Listen



Note 1



Far from making you fat, eating Whole-Food Fats instead of starches and sweets enables you to healthfully burn body fat.

Note 2



Best sources: Seafood (salmon, sardines) and certain plants (avocado, macadamia nuts, coconut, cocoa/cacao, flax seeds, and chia seeds), eggs, unprocessed fatty cuts of meat (organic grass-fed beef), and full-fat but low-sugar dairy products (cottage cheese and plain Greek yogurt).

Note 3



Fatty fish, unprocessed fatty cuts of meat, eggs, and full-fat but low-sugar dairy products are one to three servings of whole-food fats depending on their size and level of fat. A serving of plant fats such as nuts and seeds is generally a small handful or three tablespoons.

When we eat Whole-Food Fats in place of starches and sweets, our bodies start to prefer burning fat for fuel instead of sugar.



True

Correct! As you heal your body through SANE living, you will begin to automatically burn more calories, but you will not get hungry because your body is full of nutrients from SANE foods and still has plenty of its preferred fuel. Sure the fuel is fat that’s on your hips instead of starch that just passed through your lips, but why would the body care?

False

Try again.

Q2

Studies have provided strong evidence that a higher intake of [omega-3] fatty acids from fish or plant sources lowers the risk of coronary heart disease.



True

Correct! According to Harvard Medical School, “Studies have provided strong evidence that a higher intake of [omega-3] fatty acids from fish or plant sources lowers risk of coronary heart disease.”

False

Try again and don’t worry…today’s lesson will clear this up.
