“I bumped up my total fat intake last Wednesday and I have already lost 4 pounds”.
“If I log my meals, I get anywhere from 80-100g protein (including the plant proteins), less than 50g carbs, and 175-250g fat”.
Clients and low carb followers boast of weight loss after eating more calories. They start on low carb diets but also try keeping fat low. Frustrated by less than satisfactory results, they seek an alternative that would not have been considered before.
This may sound inconceivable but calories are added with the inclusion of healthy fats into their plan (stir frying veggies, including coconut, ghee, avocado, butter). Adding fats without changing any other food would automatically result in increased calories (fat will add an extra 9 calories/gram of fat added).
How can this be true? Anyone want to share thoughts?
