Not All Fats Are Bad for Your Health


Fatty Fish SteaksLow and zero fat diets are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Now more well understood, not only does research recognize that fats are essential for health, but certain types of fat consumed in particular ratios play a vital physiological role in brain, immune and metabolic health. We even know now that fats are even necessary for maintaining healthy weight loss goals.

Choosing healthy fats for weight loss and general wellness

A variety of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are ideal for weight loss. Several healthy foods containing these fats include seeds, nuts, milk and olives. Even certain saturated fats help us reach our weight loss goals. Healthy saturated fats have been shown to cause liver cells to dump their fat content. These healthy saturated fats include salmon, tuna and eggs.

What plays a vital role is getting your omega 3 to omega 6 ratio in check. Omega 3s should outweigh your intake of omega 6s overall for weight loss. As we dismissed above, seeds and nuts are healthy forms of poly and monounsaturated fats which are also omega 6s. If however the majority of our omega 6 fatty acids come from oils that are heated, this will damage cardiovascular health and impede weight loss. To help reach weight loss goals, choose omega 6 fatty acids that are in their whole food form.

Under no circumstances are trans fats ever healthy. These should always be avoided. Think about it, when fat is removed from food, what will take its place? If you answered empty calories and sugar, you are correct!

This has been one of the most positive experiences of my life! I've tried every fad diet that has come and gone over the years and ended up gaining all of the weight I lost...plus some more! I had heard about MRC through a friend that had lost 20 pounds in about 2 weeks! I knew I had to check it out! I started in May 2016 and here it is October 2016 and I've lost a total of 73.5 pounds...So far!!! I praise MRC for the hard work and determination that they provide. If you are feeling hopeless go to MRC they are here to help and cheer you along the way!
