Your main fuel source should be healthy fat! Yes, that’s right, you need to eat fat to lose fat!

Eat fat to lose fat 

  • A high carb diet can make you feel hungry all the time.
  • The insulin response after a high carb meal sweeps glucose, along with other important nutrients out of the bloodstream and into your fat cells. This can prevent nutrients from getting to the brain and other cells throughout your body.
  • Your brain thinks it is starving because it doesn’t get the fuel it needs and tells your body to eat more carbs.
  • This cycle makes you want to eat more often and crave carbs.
  • There is no insulin response when you consume healthy fat! Without the insulin response, your nutrients get to where they need to go, your body doesn’t feel like it is starving, and you won’t crave carbs anymore!
  • By adding healthy fat in to your diet, you actually feel satiated and eat less often. It is totally freeing. 
  • When you eat more fat and less carbs, fat becomes your primary fuel source. You can easily lose fat because you are burning it as fuel!

 So what does all this mean?

By eating mostly healthy fat, your body will get the nutrients it needs, you will be free from cravings, you will burn fat, and you can enjoy eating foods high in healthy fat!

About The Author

Kelly Weston

Working as a personal trainer and group fitness/ Pilates instructor in Los Angeles has been a dream come true. With 20 years of dance background, and graduating from college as captain of my dance team ranked #1 in the country, I was inspired to get into Fitness as a career and moved on my own from Maryland to California.
I now have more than a decade of experience in fitness and a strong list of qualifications and certifications. I’m an NASM certified personal trainer (National Academy of Sports Medicine), Certified Primal Blueprint Expert (Primal/ Paleo/ Ancestral Health, Lifestyle, Nutrition, & Fitness Expert) and Certified in Classical-Progressive Pilates Reformer, Chair, Cadillac and Mat from Pilates Sports Center. I’m also certified in several barre workouts, pre and postnatal fitness, and a specialist in Heart Rate Performance. I’ve helped people of all ages and levels, including Hollywood celebrities, pre and post-natal mommies, and pro athletes reach their health and fitness goals. I love to teach a challenging, fun, intense workout while I focus a lot on form and mind/ body connection. I’m confident that you and I will make a great team!
