On switching to my strict carb cycling as of yesterday, I have also decided to eat more fat to lose weight.   As always, when I say weight, I mean fat.

For some reason it’s a hard thing to put in to practice that one needs to eat more fat to lose fat.  The evidence stacks up though and clearly, eating more fat is something that often breaks a plateau for those of us trying to make those last two lower abs pop.

Did you know that dietary fats supply some of the best, and most stable sources of energy?

Stop by your local book store and pick up Michael A. Schmidt’s “Smart Fats: How Dietary Fats and Oils Affect Mental, Physical and Emotional Intelligence” book.  In reading this, my eyes were opened to the vast importance of fats in not only building muscle and burning fat but brain function.

Pertaining to building and maintaining muscle, fats regulate your hormone production and if that’s out of whack, your metabolism will be as well.  All those BMI calculators and time spent calculating how many calories your body is using every day will be all for naught.

So let’s regulate our fats.  Get your essential fats and get your non-essential fats.  If you want to make life easy, like I do, grab a bottle of Udo’s Oil from your local health food store and use that for a couple months.  Watch your body change.

I’ve cranked my daily fats up to close to 60 grams a day.  I’ll see how the body reacts and I’ll know soon!

Here’s today’s menu.
