The newest trend in diet land is to eat a lot of fat and no sugars or carbs, aka the ketogenic diet or the Low Carb High Fat diet (LCHF). There are also books on these diets and one of them is: The high fat diet this is a book which promises that you will lose fat by eating a lot of the good fats, butter, oily fish, avocados, nuts and even cream cheese(?). The author Zana Morris, claims you need to eat fat to get rid of fat. In short; fat doesn’t increase your insuline levels as much as sugar or carbohydrates do and so it doesn’t get as much storaged in your body. By not eating sugar and carbohydrates the insulin in your body will be low and If the insulin is low in your body, you remove your body’s normal source of fuel which is fat and you will lose weight. Next to your eating plan you need to do 12 minutes of High Intensity workouts (with heavy weights and or at speed) on a daily base.
I think people have gotten way to scared for fat and you definitely need some fat in your daily food intake. So I will try to eat more good fats but I won’t stop eating fruit because it has a lot of sugars. Sorry can’t live without my daily (sugary) fruit intake or I will go back to snacking on chocolate.
