If your goal is to lose weight I think it is good to see what the difference is between muscle and fat. In the picture below you can see that 1 pound of body fat is much more bulky and gross than 1 pound of muscle. Losing this body fat will help prevent more fat in the future–and by converting some of the body fat to muscle you will burn fat just by resting.
Consuming good fats like those found in fish oil, flaxseed oil, coconut oil, grass-fed butter, and olive oil is good for you and your body needs healthy fats. Eating healthy fats is a way to ensure that not only are they easily digested, assimilated, and properly used, but it also helps the assimilation and absorption of nutrients, especially as many vitamins are fat soluble (vitamins A, D, E, K). These good fats will also help to usher out or replace bad fats that you have consumed and those which are stored in certain areas of your body.
As you burn and get rid of this stored fat you will start feeling better and you will also remove a lot of toxins which will ensure that you are less sick. In this process you will notice that your muscles are sore but that the soreness comes and goes–and before too long you will be pain free.
With this new found strength and lack of fat you will be slimmer with more energy plus you will look and feel so much better. When you start to see these results your state of mind changes and you will notice that it is easier to continue in your goals for whole health.
It all starts with the decision to become healthier–with the proper motivation you will achieve your goals with little chance of returning to the same weight–if you educate yourself in the process that it takes a lifestyle. Contact us to help you in developing a plan!
