Want to just get right to the point?!! Here's a cheat sheet written in order of importance.
If you’re only going to change one thing, embrace, no LOVE real, whole food dietary fat. Make sure you don’t eat without it because the number one key to being NOT FAT is to eat it. Weird, right? And yes, totally the opposite of everything we’ve been taught. It fills ya up, fuels ya brain and it’s delicious.
One super important caveat here is the point about real, whole food fat. This means animal fats such as butter or tallow, fruit oil fats like olive and avocado, and fat from dairy, nuts, etc. In other words, real food. If it ain't found in nature (i.e., heavily processed), it shouldn't be on your plate. This means vegetable and seed oils are OUT. Out as in run like hell, avoid like the plague and remove from your pantry. These pseudo foods (think canola, corn, soybean, etc.) are industrialized/ highly processed, bleached and deodorized -- do you really need to know more?!!
From a fatness point of view, dietary fat really helps with satiety, which is not only about feeling filled, but also about the lack of interest in food. In other words, if you’re not hungry, you’re not going to eat shitty food. In summary, you must begin a love affair with fat. Here's an Unfake News post showing you my FAT Alphabet with more detail.
If you’d like to change a few more things, doing the following will change your life dramatically and quickly:
And if you always give it your all and want more:
It's damn hard to believe, but it's true. You need to eat-embrace-enjoy fat to get NOT FAT! And if this recovered fat phobe ("may I have the dressing on the side, please?!!") can say and do it, so can you. To borrow an idea from a close friend and author of NOSEDIVE, a book on the power of scent, I'm going to use our ABCs to share some of my favorite keys to becoming NOT FAT.
A is for AVOCADOS
B = BUTTA + BACON (if you like it)
C = CHOLESTEROL + COCONUT OIL
D = DITCH the deodorized, bleached, toxic and disgusting industrial seed/vegetable oils. If you're only gonna do one thing, DO this.
E = EGGS
F = FAT (duh!), FROMAGE + FATTY FISH
G = GHEE
H = HIMALAYAN SEA SALT
I = IRON-RICH ORGAN MEATS + PATÉS
J = JUMP, as in up and down given how good you gonna feel!
K = KALE and other green and richly colored vegetables, but only cooked with added fat
L = LAUGHING all the way to the weight loss bank
M = MEAT with skin on if applicable -- love on some duck, chicken, pork, beef baby
N = NUTS
O = OLIVES + OLIVE OIL
P = PANTRY as in clean yours out
Q = QUIT counting calories!
R = RED MEAT
S = SATURATED (as in animal) FATS + SARDINES
T = TALLOW
U= UV, get some rays!
V = VINEGAR to give ya a little oomph
W = WHIPPING CREAM
X = X is for SUGAR + PROCESSED FOODS with additives, chemicals and fillers. This includes bullshit "natural" flavorings and sweeteners. If mama nature didn't make it, see ya!
Y = YOGURT, but only full fat and no added sugar including so called "fruit"
Z = ZZZs as in get plenty!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
