Eat Fat, Lose Weight: How the Right Fats Can Make You Thin for Life
Fifty-four pecent of Americans are overweight and 22 percent of them are considered obese. With many of us practicing a low fat diet why are we still gaining weight? According to Ann Louise Gittleman, it's not too much fat in our diets, but too little of the right kind of fat. In reality, many Americans are suffering from a massive fat deficiency that is contributing to the rise of obesity, diabetes, arthritis, breast cancer, depression, immune system dysfunction, PMS, hyperactivity in children, and many more ills common today. Believe it or not, it takes fat to lose fat. Gittleman believes this is the problem with many low fat diets. Medicinal fats, known as essential fatty acids, actually increase our metabolic rate. EFAs can help you stay fit and healthy while unhealthy fats such as the processed fats found in fried foods or margirine compromise our health. Gittleman helps us establish which fats are good for us, how much we need, and which ones we should eat daily to help us burn fat and keep weight off. An easy weight loss and maintenance program to balance our diets naturally and safely is included.
