A Tale of Two Meals
Coming to you via Massive Health’s Blog-which has some other seriously cool and enlightening information on eating myths–is this infographic: What’s Really Making You Fat.
What’s REALLY Making You Fat
Not that I’m endorsing you eat endless amounts of bacon–which I am because I do not doubt it will make you live a happier, fuller and obviously therefore longer life. Wait…what did I just say? Yes, eat more bacon. And eggs.
Okay. What’s making you fat? Is it the fat in foods? Is it carbs? How is our body responding to fried nastiness and cholesterol? These are important questions to ask and get answers to before you throw away your egg whites and buy a pound of cured meat from the back of a pig. I don’t want our readers to die young with clogged arteries, no matter how delicious bacon is.
Before I write anymore wasteful words, I’ll just let you get to the infographic and find out a little more about the science of what makes you fat. Which comes down to this: how insulin, digestion, and metabolism are all intertwined. Read on. You’ll be amazed and encouraged.
A little note to the bacon obsessed, eating oil and fat may not be the most keen plan to lose weight. What this infographic is pointing to is carbs that are eaten at the wrong time, in the wrong amount at the wrong level on the Glycemic Index are a No-No if you want to reduce your belly size. Eating Mono- and Poly-Unsaturated fats are the right kind of fats. When people say something like, “Oh, that’s got healthy fat in it so it’s okay,” do your own research and find out if that’s an accurate statement.
