WANT TO BECOME FAT ADAPTED?
Sounds scary and crazy right? However, it’s not as extreme as you may think.
It simply means adding more avocado, a little extra olive oil, a handful of raw walnuts to your salad and including some fattier grass fed meats and oily fish, while lowering the amount of sugar (yes, even the natural type from fruits) in your diet.
All it means is that all of us, men, women, athlete, desk junkie, weekend warrior, overweight and healthy weight alike could all benefit from becoming less reliant on carbs as the main source of fuel in our day to day regime and shifting more toward becoming better fat burners.
It does not mean:
• That you have to eat sticks of butter and spoonfuls of lard
• That you eat tons of low grade, processed meats and cheeses (actually, you’re better off skipping these entirely)
• That you eat no carbs
• That you eat tons of protein (moderate consumption only)
• That you’re going to gain weight because of all the extra fat calories you’d have to consume; remember you’re simply shifting around the macronutrients a little.
Over the last few years, I began exploring the higher fat approach and began making a few tweaks with my diet. Being able to approach my workday with such sharp focus was new to me, the ability to go for longer runs without having to rely on those awful gels any longer and the significantly decreased muscle soreness I’d experience after training all made for a winning regime. Plus all more health benefits such as – deeper sleep, lean body composition, improved health blood markers, no gut distress, no cravings, and more energy.
So what does a day of eating this way look like?
Here’s an example of a day in my life:
Coffee or Latte with a splash of coconut oil, Butter, and heavy cream after drinking a couple of glasses of water (yes I fuel on Bullet-proof coffee for my long, aerobic runs)
After the run… when I’m hungry (no need to hurriedly chug down a recovery shake to replace carbs you’ve used… because you’ve tapped into fueling with your fat stores)
Two eggs over easy, on top of garlic kale or spinach sautéed in coconut oil, sliced avocado
Later in the day… again-when you’re hungry. Sometimes, I eat twice each day. Other times, it’s three. It just depends on what the training looked like, how long it was, and what I’m doing the rest of the day.
Grilled grass-fed steak, arugula salad with EVOO, avocado, lime juice, sautéed Brussels sprouts
And to finish off… if it happens to have been a day where I’m eating three times, dinner would look quite the same.
Grilled, Wild Salmon, Grilled Asparagus & Peppers, mixed lettuce salad with avocado and olive oil
Sometimes I’ll have another cup of coffee with coconut oil or MCT oil in it. Sometimes, I’ll have a drink with dinner, such as a nice glass of Cab or merlot. And that’s my own balance; which works for me. See? It’s not that scary at all.
Give it a go, if even for a short period of time and sit back to observe any changes that may be ensue. I had a group of 30+ individuals, whom just completed a month of following protocols to become fat adapted & lost over 100 inches as a group.
