It is also important that you should supplement the calories that you miss by reducing carbohydrates with ‘other’ calories, namely those from fats (and proteins). You don’t want to follow a crash diet again by just cutting out carbohydrates and thus eating too little. Eating too little can lead to metabolic problems and thyroid problems. Although this can help you lose weight temporarily, there are many crash diets known for a reason , it only causes damage in the long term and it cannot be sustained.
How can you burn your own body fat
And now I would like to take you to the answer to the question: ‘Why do you have to eat fats in order to eventually burn your body fat and thus start losing weight? And here is an important lesson. Because I’m constantly talking about the word fat burning. The word that indicates that your body uses fats for energy.
So you read that one low-carbohydrate diet
In this article I will tell you how you can permanently lose weight with a low-carbohydrate diet. And that without hunger, suffering …ensures optimal fat burning in your body, that’s right. However, this is often confused with burning body fat. And to be honest, this is also often used as marketing. Because how cool it sounds that you are in an optimal state of fat burning. We all want that.
But fat burning does not say anything about whether you are burning body fat, but it says everything about the fact that you are burning fats from food, which provide energy. While “dietary fat” and “body fat” both share the word “fat” in common, they are very different and have little in common. Dietary fat is one of the essential macronutrients in our diet and is vital to human health. Dietary fats, once digested, enter the bloodstream and participate in what is called ‘fat metabolism’.
If you eat fat along with a lot of carbohydrates, it is prone to fat storage. But when you keep your carbohydrate intake low, but start adding more fats, your body learns to use these fats for energy in the first place. And secondly, if your body learns and knows that it can use fat from food as the main fuel, it is then easier for your body to use your own body fat.
Because once fats have been digested and absorbed, dietary fat and body fat enter the fat metabolism together and mix constantly. If you are going to reduce your carbohydrate intake, but do not add extra fats, then you are sabotaging your body and very flatly, no more fuel will come in at all. And just then your body wants to do nothing but retain body fat in times of need.
A final word on the use of fats
While it’s important to include fat in your diet, it’s also important to understand that not all fats are created equal and are equally healthy. This really concerns the saturated and unsaturated fats with a high nutritional value. Think of olive oil, avocado, nuts, fatty fish, coconut oil, butter, full fat dairy. Dairy is the general name for products made from raw milk. This milk is .. products, good quality meat.
You do not need the so-called trans fats, processed fats and they absolutely do not fit with the term fat burning. These fats can be found mainly in chips, cookies, fast food and are actually removed from fat burning.
