You heard it. Time and time again you hear weight loss preachers tell you to remove fat from your diet. Fat makes you fat, so they say.
Time to bust the myth!
From being obese class 1 at 180 lbs packed in my 5 ft and 3in frame, I successfully trimmed down to 127 lbs. I lost all the 52 lbs of unhealthy fat in 11 months!
The 38.5 in waistline is gone. The 43 in abdomen is gone. From size 3xl I can now wear size small clothes again. Sweet!
Fat in fact makes you lose weight. And I am a result of that myth getting busted. Let me share to you 3 reasons why fat makes you lose weight. And yes, fat makes you lose weight the healthy way.
1 – Fat makes you want to eat less
The biggest chunk of nutrients that from the food we eat come from the macronutrients – carbohydrates, proteins, and fat. Of these macronutrients, fat contains the highest amount of energy. Fat contains 9 calories of energy per gram while carbohydrates and proteins only contain 4 calories.
This high-energy fat takes the longest time to digest compared to the other macronutrients. It stays longer in your body making you feel full longer.
Healthy fat leaves you feeling satiated and full. When this happens, your brain tells your appetite hormones to back off.
When I started putting 10 g of unsalted Anchor Butter on my cup of morning coffee, the portions of my breakfast have cut down. My cravings for eating snacks in between meals have stopped too. Effortlessly.
2 – Fat gives you more energy to burn more calories
Did you know that the subcutaneous fat, the fat stored around your belly, butt, and thighs, needs dietary fat to be burned efficiently? The dietary fat do this by activating the PPAR-alpha and the path-burning mechanisms through the liver. When you eat the right type and amount of fat, you are in fact helping your body shape your waistline!

Dietary fat is a wonder. It gives you more energy to move your body and burn more calories. In fact, it makes your body burn fat faster than the other macro-nutrients can do. With more energy to burn while feeling full longer, you can go on with your day much longer without to fight off unnecessary urge to keep on eating.
3 – Eating fat makes you happy
Our brains are wired to detect the taste and feel of dietary fat. So when we are eating low-fat food, it does not give us the same satiety as when we eat fat. But when we eat the right amount of fat, our brain activates the serotonin hormones boosting our happy mood.
Food which satiates us triggers happy hormones. Even better, when we are in our best mood, we don’t feel the urge to eat. And binge-eating is prevented.
