Jeff Novick is my favorite dietician and I love his explanation of calorie density. It is easier to overeat calorie dense food. The more fat you eat, the higher your risk of obesity. You just aren’t going to overeat broccoli. Hypnosis for weight loss can help you avoid foods that are calorie rich. Becoming Slender For Life and it’s hypnosis CD set. The Seattle weight loss program Slender For Life™, offers you the weight loss hypnosis tools and resources to support you with you with your weight loss goals.
You are the fat you eat.
Fat is calorie dense, one tablespoon of olive oil has more calories than a pound of broccoli. In Becoming Slender For Life, I write, “Fat is normally measured two different ways—in grams, and in percentage of total fat calories. Usually, fat is expressed as a percentage of total calories, since food is consumed to satisfy our need for calories, not our need for weight. Groups such as the American Medical Association and the American Heart Association have recommended a 30 percent total fat calorie diet to reduce the risk of heart disease and many types of cancer. By their recommendation, no more than 30 percent of all the calories you consume in a day should come from fat. However, we do know based on the work of dietary health experts such as Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Neil Barnard, Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. T. Colin Campbell, that fat calories should actually be no more than 10 percent of the total calories consumed each day. Sadly today, most Americans consume as much as 40 percent of their total calories as fat. While fat is an energy source, we hardly use any fat energy in our sedentary lifestyles. Instead, we store fat in our bodies like a pillow. In order to begin to release weight, most men and women need to consume less than 20 percent total fat calories. If you consumed 1200 calories in a day and if 20 percent of the calories were from fat, it would mean you consumed 240 fat calories. Since there are 9 calories in just one gram of fat, 240 divided by 9 equals 27 total grams of fat.
You may desire to release weight faster than this. If you reduce your fat consumption to 15 percent total fat calories, or 20 grams of fat per day at 1200 total calories, and you exercise, you may release about one to two pounds per week. At 5 to 10 percent total fat calories you will probably release about two to three pounds each week. Doing the math you can see that eating only 5 to10 percent total fat calories is a much more motivating way to achieve results.” ~ Updated second edition, page 129, Becoming Slender For Life.
