Why I Eat More Fat to Lose Fat

August 05, 2020 2 min read

If you work out and are moving your body, eating a high fat diet will likely NOT make you fat. Of course I can only speak from my experience and the experience of others as every person has a different genetic makeup, but eating fat does not make you fat. There are plenty of high fat foods that are integral to good health. 


Contrary to popular belief, simply counting your calories will not lead to optimal health or weight loss because not all calories are created equal. I remember a friend of mine was counting calories and sent back food at a restaurant because it had extra virgin olive oil on it. EVOO is wonderful for your body and your health, but he’d had two Coke Zero’s that day and didn’t have room for the extra calories in his diet. 


You see, calorie counting makes sense if you’re counting your other macros as well. All of this being said, I wanted to share which high fat foods I consume every day, why, and why they are so important to you. I even have my kids eating much of this daily because the oils and fats that we eat are amazing for their brain health. 


Listen as I share why eating grass fed butter or ghee, C8MCT oil, fish oil, krill oil, organic extra virgin olive oil, and high heat avocado oil is essential to good health (no matter what kind of diet you’re on.) Eating good healthy foods is the key to overall health, pain reduction, and weight loss. Don’t get caught up in counting the numbers without understanding the actual food that you’re eating.

Our immune systems are at the core of keeping us healthy, protecting us against infections, illness, and even chronic disease. When our immune systems are happy and healthy, we are happy and healthy.

We’ve all experienced pain, but how much of it is physiological and how much of it is psychological? I’m asking this question because I recently had a really bad bout with pain and it reminded me about the work of Dr. John Sarno. Dr. John Sarno did a ton of research around the Mindbody Connection. He started his career as a regular doctor, assessing physical trauma and prescribing pain meds or surgery as needed. All was well until he realized that his patients didn’t always get better after the initial issue was treated.
