Widya Pure, MARS, healthy fat is fat when consumed will make the body become more healthy, and fat-loss program can be run perfectly. So what are the sources of fat that makes you slim? This list, as quoted from the Women’s Health.
1. Olive oil
A recent study published in the journal Obesity found that eating olive oil regularly will increase adiponectin levels compared to low-carbohydrate diets or high protein. Adiponectin, a hormone that served to break up fat in the body. The more numbers, body mass index will decrease. To get maximum benefits, olive oil should be treated as salad dressings, for sauteing or as additives sauce. Some people also eat whole wheat bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar as a dipping.
This tropical fruit is actually high in saturated fat, but also rich in lauric acid which is efficacious against bad bacteria and maintain the stability of cholesterol. A study published in the journal Lipids revealed that the consumption of coconut oil can reduce visceral fat or abdominal obesity.
In one study, some respondents were given two teaspoons of coconut oil every day. While the respondents were given soyabean oil. Two groups of participants lost weight, but only the group taking coconut oil waist shrink. Eat coconut oil in an amount not excessive. Use coconut oil for sauteing little.
3. Dark Chocolate
Chocolate types of dark chocolate can help flatten your stomach. But in order for maximum benefit, do not consume dark chocolate as a dessert. But as a snack in between meals is great. A study found that people who ate 3.5 ounces of dark chocolate two hours before meals, calorie intake is less than 17 percent who do not eat or eat milk chocolate.
The researchers conclude, it is because dark chocolate contains pure cocoa butter in which there is stearic acid. A substance that slows the digestive process so the body needs more energy and excess calories were wasted. Other than that because it takes longer to process, you can withstand hunger longer and help with weight loss.
4. Peanut Butter Almond
Although it has a relatively high fat content, but the fat contained in almonds can actually help lose weight. The study conducted by the International Journal of Obesity and Related Metabolic Disorders compare two types of diet for six months. One group followed a diet low in fat and calories (only consume 18 percent fat) diet and the other group with a number of more fat (39 percent fat), which is partially derived from almonds.
As a result, both groups successfully lost weight more than a low-fat diet group. In fact, both groups consumed the same amount of calories. In addition, the eating almonds also experienced a reduction in waist circumference width of up to 50 percent. As an explanation, almonds contain substances money limit the absorption of fat by the body. Fat that is not absorbed and then excreted through feces. From now on, eat peanut butter as a spread for toast almonds, apple and banana slices. Or sprinkle chopped almonds over oatmeal porridge.
In his book, dr. Phaidon and dr. Widya explained that the avocado is a food rich in healthy fats that can assist in the reduction of fat in the body. The fruit has a creamy taste with unsaturated fat that helps the body to process the maximum burning excess fat, strengthening the structure of the cell wall and increase the production of hormones that play a role in fat burning.
Although healthy, still limit their consumption because of the avocado is high in calories. Simply consume half of an avocado and eaten raw. Without a mixture of sugar, syrup, sweetened condensed milk or can be used as a mixed salad.
