Sino nga ba ang tunay na salarin sa ating pagtaba?
Ang sugar o ang fat? Hmmm… 🤔
Sabay sabay nating alamin dito! 👇 #sugarvsfat #therealculprit #weightloss #fitnessjourney
You’ve heard that eating fat makes you fat.
That it contributes to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. You’ve been told that saturated fat is bad and vegetable oils are good.
But fat gets a bad rap. Find out why sugar is the real culprit.
IT’S SUGAR THAT MAKES YOU FAT
The average person eats 152 lbs. of sugar + 146 lbs. of flour (which converts to sugar) per year.
That much sugar makes your cells numb to insulin’s call.
You pump out more and more insulin to pull blood sugar levels down.
Your body can’t burn all that sugar and stores it as fat for a rainy day.
You become insulin-resistant, and your metabolism goes haywire.
YOU NEED FAT TO FUNCTION
Your body is 15-30% fat. Your 10 trillion cells need fat to build cell walls.
Cell walls made of high-quality fats metabolize insulin better.
They help regulate your blood sugar levels.
You feel less hungry as a result.
You store less fat and burn more of it.
ALL FATS AREN’T CREATED EQUAL
Sugar has over 250 names, but sugar is sugar. It always does the same damage.
Fat has many types (saturated, monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, trans) and subtypes. Each behaves differently.
Some fats (like omega-3) are helpful. Some fats (like trans) are harmful. Some are neutral.
LOW-FAT DIETS BOOMERANG
We tend to eat more starch and sugar to make up for the lost fat.
A diet high in starch and sugar increases inflammation and encourages diabesity (diabetes + obesity).
A dangerous, small, dense form of cholesterol builds up, increasing your risk for heart attacks.
In a recent study, high-fat, low-carb diets burned more calories than low-fat, high-carb diets, and better improved cholesterol and insulin resistance.
WHOLE FOOD DIETS ROCK
The best way to keep weight off is to eat a whole food diet with quality fats, fiber, and carbs (like dried beans) that won’t spike blood sugar.
Quality fats are found in extra-virgin olive oil, avocados, extra-virgin coconut oil, some nuts and seeds, eggs and fatty fish.
Avoid “Frankenfoods” at all costs. These are processed foods packed with hidden sugars, trans fat and inflammatory vegetable oils (like corn and soy).
DON’T BLAME DIETARY FAT FOR LOVE HANDLES OR AN EXPANDING WAISTLINE
Sugar is what sabotages your weight and well-being.
Quality fats in a healthy diet will protect and nourish your body from the inside out.
Ngayong alam na natin ang totoo, simulan na natin ang pagbabawas ng sugar intake at pagdagdag ng quality at healthy fats sa ating diet! 👍❤️
