This Fat Loss Information is Vital!
One of the really interesting things about The Fat Loss Factor is the way that Dr Charles gives you the low-down on all the different elements of our diet: carbohydrates, proteins, fats, fiber…. make no mistake, this is important information when you want to lose weight!
This is the formation you need to know to make informed decisions about how to eat well.
Dr Charles gives you the facts you really need to know. Here are a few example to show you the vital information you can find in The Fat Loss Factor:
- The differences between insoluble and soluble fiber.
- What are good sources of protein, what are bad sources of protein and why they’re different.
- The differences between simple carbohydrates and complex carbohydrates, and how they can affect your health and the possibility of getting diabetes.
- What makes a good fat and what makes a bad fat.
- Why trans fats are so bad for you, and why even things like Omega 6 oils – traditionally regarded as “a good thing” – could actually do you more harm than good.
Good food is good for you, the planet, and the economy!
The Easiest Diet of All – The Fat Loss Factor?
It’s all here, including an amazing and practical section called The Best 15 Foods For Maximum Weight Loss.
As Dr Charles says, by including 3 of these 15 foods in every meal you’re not only maximizing your fat loss, but you’re maximizing good health!
And the point is that he explains exactly why each and every type of food is either good or bad for you: eggs, oils, nut butters, fish oils, rice, beans, lentils, grains … fruit, grains, meat, fish, veggies, pastries, dairy, cheese …… everything you can imagine is described, analyzed and explained.
And more to the point, you’ll know whether to stay away from it or to eat loads of it by the time you’ve read the Fat Loss Factor!
To take only one example, here’s what he has to say about wild caught salmon:
Wild Caught Salmon
I can’t emphasize enough the value of wild caught salmon and tuna. These cold-water fish contain Omega-3 fatty acids, instead of saturated fat. Omega-3 fatty acids decrease a hormone called leptin, which is responsible for storing body fat. The lower your leptin levels, the easier it is to burn fat. Only eat wild caught fish. Fish like Atlantic salmon are bred in pens in the open ocean on farms. Not only are they destroying our oceans, but these fish are fed an unnatural diet, causing them to have very little Omega-3 in their fat. Instead, they have Omega-6 fatty acids, which in large quantities can harm you.
[For each food listed you also get a handy summary, like this:]
What they do: build muscle and fat.
Nutrition: protein, omega-3 fatty acids.
Friends: krill, sardines, wild game meat, free-range beef.
Impostors: fried fish, Atlantic salmon, farm-raised fish.
These are the ones you’re going to avoid (I mean, you do want to lose weight, yes?) – and they include the usual suspects: doughnuts, pastries, French fries, alcohol, offal and processed meat,…. high fructose corn syrup, diet pop, soda drinks, pizza, ice cream … and so on.
Now, of course you know all this, but the truth of the matter is that these are the things which taste nice and which we find most tempting and delicious.
That’s because we’re “programmed” to go for high-fat, high salt and high sugar foods. It’s a biological drive from our ancestral times – times when the human race didn’t have a regular supply of of food like we have today, so our ancestors had to make the most of whatever food they had when it was available. (A kind of “grab it while you can” approach!)
The Fat Loss Factor Is A Balanced Diet
I suppose an obvious question is “how can we find a balance between the things we enjoy, and the foods that make us fat?”
And in case you’re thinking this is a huge amount of information, the great news is that you don’t have to do anything with it. This is simply information that can help you understand your diet, your weight, your lifestyle and The Fat Loss Factor diet better.
The diet program sets out what you need to do. Simply and easily.
So – back to my question…. As you know, there’s nothing worse than being deprived of the things you love. Whatever your favorite food [ fill in your choice here ], not having it and really wanting it – craving it, in fact – can really affect your emotions. Actually, it can make you feel cr*p.
And craving something is one of the best ways to sabotage your weight loss…. not only does it lead to the temptation of binging, but it raises your stress levels.
So whatever “it” is, ice cream or pizza or whatever, you don’t have to deprive yourself of it entirely.
The key thing here is to allow yourself a regular treat!
And when it’s a regular treat, you know it’s coming your way regardless and you know it’s going to be there, so you’re not going to develop cravings for it. And that’s what you get on the Fat Loss Factor diet.
So how does it work?
Well, basically you follow the diet plans. We haven’t looked at those yet. We’ll get to them in a moment!
Just for a few more minutes, I want to show you some of the background information yoo get with the FLF.
This helps you understand how and why you’re successfully losing weight!
Fat Loss Factor: Easy Weight Loss & Good Nutrition
As Dr Charles explains in great detail, you can add a raw fruit or vegetable to every meal. Here’s what he says…
“Axiom 2: Eat Something Raw At Every Meal”.
This is also known as the addition rule. When eating, add a raw fruit or vegetable to every single meal. This has four specific benefits:
- Raw fruits and vegetables have digestive enzymes to help you
break down the rest of the food you are eating.
- The fiber in the fruit or vegetables expands in your stomach and fills you up so you don’t eat as much.
- The fiber in the fruit or vegetable helps to push food, waste and toxins through your digestive tract.
- And it provides the body with much-needed vitamins and minerals.
The second part of the axiom is to “eat my fiber first.”
This will clear a path and prepare your digestive tract for the rest of
your meal. Raw fruits and vegetables are full of fiber, and when eaten with other carbohydrates, they cleanse your colon and create a path for the rest of the food. For example, if you are eating pizza, eat a salad first. If you are eating ice cream, eat an apple first. This will fill your belly so you won’t be able to eat as much.
Fiber is a very important part of your diet. I recommend at least 40
grams per day. Studies have shown that people who changed nothing in their diet other than adding more fiber lost weight.
There’s loads more valuable information which can keep you fit and healthy and happy, too. It includes:
- interpreting food labels
- the meaning of “whole grain”
- the dangers of high fructose corn syrup
- all about additives, colorings, flavorings and preservatives
- the dangers of sugar substitutes
- the dangers of salt
- what monosodium glutamate is and why it kills you
- the secret things you don’t want to see on a food label
- avoiding man-made additives
- structured eating
Speaking of which, let’s look at…
The Fat Loss Structured Diet Plan
As we’ve already seen, the Fat Loss Factor is a special diet that depends on eating in a particular way, to achieve certain results, over time.
The Structured Eating process can be divided into three components:
- Structured Eating Level 1 – at this level, you maintain the same
food intake and meals; however, you modify the intake times
such that you consume the meals only between noon and 9 pm.
- Structured Eating Level 2 – at this level, you begin to add in
foods in the list provided in the Medium Weight Loss Plan.
Consume about 50% of the time.
- Structured Eating Level 3 – at this level, you begin to add in
foods in the list provided in the Turbo Weight Loss Plan.
Consume about 90% of the time.
Obviously, how much weight you lose depends on what you eat and and how much you eat — that’s why the Fat Loss Factor gives you all the information you need to lose weight rapidly and effectively.
- exact day by day recipes which include precisely the right balance of fat, carbohydrate, protein, fiber and nutrients
- diet plans that give you energy
- diet plans that allow you to consume food you like
- diet plans that burn off fat
- and diet plans that increase hormones like leptin and hGH (both of which which burn fat).
Practical Tips For This – One Of The Best Diets There Is
The Fat Loss Factor has some really practical tips and information about things that might have baffled you in the past: why, for example, do you often feel so hungry after breakfast, particularly when breakfast is supposed to keep you going all day!
It’s a great question isn’t it?
You have breakfast, eating healthy foods such as eggs or porridge or oatmeal, and an hour later – you’re feeling hungry!
Now why is this? We all think if we eat healthy foods, particularly full of fiber, that should keep us going for quite a while.
And the answer lies with a particular hormone you may have heard of – cortisol. Also known as the stress hormone…..
Your cortisol levels are highest in the morning when you wake up. And cortisol increases the response of your body to insulin. So you have a breakfast full of carbohydrate, and your body produces insulin to deal with it – but the impact of that insulin on your body is doubled because of the high level of cortisol in your bloodstream.
So the glucose in your blood clears very quickly, and you feel ravenous. That’s why you need a chocolate bar or something sweet and simple – donuts, maybe!
Your body knows this is the quickest way to restore blood sugar levels to normal.
So there’s a whole process behind feeling hungry after eating a good breakfast.
What should you do about it?
One thing you can do about it is to try and control your hunger. I mean, clearly the more you control your hunger, the better you’re going to be able to lose weight if you’re on a diet (or even if you;re NOT!)
So a good approach here is to skip breakfast and continue fasting until noon, or maybe mid-morning, by which time your cortisol levels will have dropped and your body won’t be so sensitive to insulin.
And good reason for doing this: it leaves you more calories to eat in the evening (assuming of course you are on a restricted calorie diet) – and that means you won’t feel hungry in the evening and succumb to a tempting snack!
In short, for many dieters, it’s easier not to eat breakfast than it is to starve yourself for the rest of the day. You get to avoid morning hunger and you can relax and enjoy food in the evening.
It’s a great strategy!
