Can A Trans Fat Diet Actually Make You Lean?
|February 23, 2012||Posted by healthsmartmom under Diet and Exercise, Exercises To Lose Belly Fat|
We all know that trans fats are horrible for your health right? But what if I told you that there is a specific type of trans fat that’s natural (not man-made) and actually helps you to lose fat faster and build lean muscle?
Well, check out the excerpt from Mike Geary’s very interesting nutrition program called “The Fat Burning Kitchen” ( http://www.truthaboutabs.com/fat-burning-kitchen.html ) below:
“…Not many people know this fact, but a natural fat found in ruminant animals called Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is actually a natural form of trans fat. However, CLA is FAR different than the artificial trans fats from hydrogenated oils that are so deadly and that you hear all of the negative information about. CLA is actually one of the only healthy trans fats in existence and has a different chemical structure than artificial trans fats.
CLA is a natural form of healthy trans fat that occurs in the fat on the meat, and in the dairy from ruminant animals such as cattle, bison, deer, goats, sheep, kangaroo, etc. CLA in natural form has been shown to help in burning off abdominal fat and also maintaining or even building lean muscle, as well as cancer prevention. Great stuff huh! Keep in mind that CLA diminishes in meat and dairy when the animals were fed grain.
Warning: Although the data in studies is conflicting, I generally do not recommend CLA supplements as they contain an artificially created form of CLA that is a different CLA isomer compared to the natural CLA isomer that’s found in meats and dairy from ruminant animals. The CLA isomer found in CLA supplements is thought by some researchers to possibly have negative effects in the body and is more similar in chemical structure to an artificial trans fat. This is however, controversial and not a lot of studies have been done. But from a common sense standpoint, the natural form of CLA from grass-fed meats should be more beneficial to your health than the artificial form of CLA. The only form of CLA that I personally believe is going to benefit your health and help to reduce body fat is the natural CLA isomers from grass-fed beef, bison, venison, etc or from grass-fed raw milk or cheeses.
Also, grass-fed meats and dairy contain 3-5x the CLA content of grain fed meats, so avoid your typical grain-fed grocery store meats and choose grass-fed!
So that is the reason why I focused more on red meats such as grass-fed beef and bison during this 23-day cutting cycle instead of chicken, turkey, or fish — because the extra CLA can really help in accelerating fat loss and preserving lean muscle…”
There you have it… there actually IS such a thing as a healthy trans fat… bet you didn’t know that!
This was an excerpt from Mike Geary’s super-popular nutrition program co-authored with an extremely knowledgeable nutrition expert named Catherine Ebeling.
The program is called “The Fat Burning Kitchen”, and it’s a must read if you want to know exactly what to eat to be lean and healthy for life, and which foods are sabotaging your efforts.
