Do we need "Fat" ?


Okay . . . so today . . . let's continue the conversation about "FAT"


Now . . . the body stores "fat" within specialized fat cell . . . by enlarging these cell . . . which are already in the body . . .


And the body stores any "extra calories" we consume . . . that we don't burn off . . . especially "EMPTY CALORIE FOODS" . . . in these "fat cells" for a "rainy day".


Meaning . . . for when you miss a meal, overexert yourself or fast.


Now . . . research has found that the number of fat cells in the body is set during adolescence and remains constant through adulthood . . . regardless of whether you gain or lose weight.


These "fat" cells just "enlarge" or "contract" as our diet "fluctuates".


And this is why we have loose skin when we lose weight. The "fat" in these fats cells has depleted . . . but the fat cells themselves . . . have not yet "regained" their "elasticity".


So we now find ourselves with . . . "SAGGY" skin.


Okay . . . so the National Institute of Health claims that 98% of all dieters "FAIL" in their attempt to lose weight and regain optimal health . . . and this all leads to prediabetes and diabetes.


And according to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention . . . more than 100 million adults in the U.S. are living with diabetes today.


Okay . . . so we can definitely see . . . we as a society have a problem with . . .


Eating "too" much . . .


"Not" the "right" types of food . . .


And "not" being able to "burn it off".


Now mind you . . . I am not a "calories" counter . . . but we do need to know what the requirements of the body are for some guidelines.


And with that being said . . . let's switch the conversation over to the "FATS we consume.


Now . . . "healthy dietary fats" are essential to give the body energy and to support cell growth. These fats also protect our organs and "help" keep the body "warm".


Which is what we were talking about yesterday!


And "WITHOUT" . . . these "essential fats" . . . we "CAN'T" absorb "fat-soluble" vitamins such as A, D, E, and K.


These "healthy fats" . . . can also help to absorb other nutrients and "produce" important "hormones".


Now . . . we also need "both" . . . carbohydrates and protein . . . for a good source of energy in the diet . . .


You see . . . the body needs proper "PROTEIN" to stay healthy and work the way it should . . . for healthy organs, muscles, tissues, bones, skin and hair.


"Protein" is a critical part of the process that fuels our energy and carries oxygen throughout the body via our blood.


Okay . . . so what about "simple and/or complex carbohydrates"???


Well . . . "simple" carbohydrates are broken down quickly by the body to be used as quick energy.


And "complex" carbohydrates are packed with "nutrients" . . . and are "high" in "fiber ". . . which helps to digest food more slowly so you don't feel hungry. Therefore . . . they're a more filling food.


And . . . they're ideal for people with type 2 diabetes because they help manage blood sugar "spikes" after a meal.


So again . . . we can clearly see that eliminating "ANY" of these elements (including carbohydrates) would be detrimental to our health and weight loss process long-term.


So tomorrow . . . let's continue
