Eat Fat and Loose Weight

Eat Fat and Loose Weight

One teaspoon of FAT!

When you are on a diet to loose weight the fear of hunger and the reality of poor nutrition is a concern. A first practice for dieting is eating less. This is a good thing if the quality of nutrition is very high and the absorption rate is effective for good health and energy.

If 1 teaspoon of fat is eaten with every meal the delay in digestion will give less hunger time before the next meal. Fat takes a longer time to digest than other foods. Eaten in combination with other foods delays digestion.

Savoring the taste of fat is pleasurable and will also add to the time taken to eat. It takes about twenty minutes for the brain to get the message of satiety so this slower eating practice will lessen the amount taken in. If you eat without realizing your need you will take in food that is unnecessary. Eat slowly with thoughtful awareness of your need.

Fat is a crucial solvent for Vitamins A, D, E and K. This is not a complete list as there are other nutrients that need the presence of fat to be absorbed and digested. If fat is present then more nutrients are accessible by the body systems and good health is a result. Less food will give good health because of the higher efficiency of digestion. Fat is the key.

One teaspoon of peanut butter is one serving of fat for an average adult. Other nut butters such as almond, sesame (in the form of tahini), walnut, sunflower seeds are good choices also. Some may prefer grape seed or sesame seed oils and saturated fats such as coconut and avocado.

Eat fat and loose weight. Savor the valuable servings of fat.
