I think Dr. Oz. recommended it. I go to the health food store and it is never in stock!

The only "diet" that works is consistency!

Anyone ever heard of "rice bran oil"? I'd not heard of previously but has a very high smoke point and the belief is that it will help you lose weight. I need to do more research on it.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.

Thanks for the information. Fats are regarded as good in our house so I appreciate more information when people say they eat low fat or non fat foods.
Have you ever tried to cook with Avocado as an oil. Bananas work wonders as a sweetener and oil substitute. Must get some extras to experiment with.
Alas my numbers went the wrong way. I am still waiting for results in the mail so I can post them Pat in Maine.

Good Fats for Weight Loss

Avocado: improves insulin function
Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Burns brown fat
Grass Fed Beef: improves LDL Profile
EPA/DHA Oil: lowers cortisol
Macadamia nuts: slow gastric emptying


New research points to the critical role mono and polyunsaturated fats play in weight control and maintaining weight loss

These are the best fats to eat for weight loss and sustained weight control.


Avocado:

Not only Is avocado high in weight loss friendly monounsaturated fats, it also has a double whammy. Avocado contains a unique starch known as mannoheptulose. Mannoheptulose has been demonstrated to inhibit insulin secretion, a plus for people with insulin resistance, which is an underlying cause of metabolic syndrome, which affects over 40% of the US population.



Extra Virgin Olive Oil:

Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is perhaps the king of the healthy fats. Extra virgin olive oil has been demonstrated to increase the rate of fat oxidation (fat burning) after ingestion. Extra virgin olive oil has also been demonstrated to act as a potent ant-oxidant, lowering inflammation, which aids blood sugar metabolism. To top it all off, extra virgin olive has been demonstrated to burn brown fat by increasing.


Grass Fed Beef:
Think for a minute about how you would look and what your health would be like if you lived on a diet of grass versus a diet of enriched corn meal?

Now imagine how such drastically different diets affect cows. Research demonstrates conclusively that grass fed beef has dramatically different effects on HDL/LDL ratio’s and omega 3/6 ratios when consumed by humans.

Grass fed beef has been shown to improve blood lipid profiles, which means it promotes cardiovascular health. Grass fed beef is a favorite weight loss food because it promotes fullness and satiety while also improving your health.


EPA/DHA Oil

EPA and DHA are made from omega 3 and omega 6 fats. EPA and DHA have been demonstrated in numerous studies to have profound effects over inflammation, cortisol control, mood and hormone balance.

EPA and DHA are on the list of essential weight loss fats because they aid in balancing key hormones such as cortisol and insulin that exert tremendous control over your weight.
