Avoiding restaurants is one key to losing weight.
Sure, it is OK to indulge every once in a while, but restaurants are traps for dieters!
Restaurants serve HUGE portions, many do not list nutritional info, and to make your food taste as yummy as possible, restaurants load up on the salts, sugars, grease, fats, and everything else we are trying to avoid.
So, eating at home, 90% of the time, should be something you really work towards.
Traps Of Eating At Home
However, there can be traps at HOME that keep you heavy, too.
One of those difficult situations is choosing which type of OIL to use to cook with.
Oil is called for in basically every recipe and you need to make sure you choose one that is both good to cook with AND good for you.
Guess which oil health expert Isabel De Los Rios suggests?
Below are a couple myths that Isabel has officially busted wide open about coconut oil.
Myth #1: Coconut Oil Contains Fat So It Must Be Fattening
Isabel says “Not all fat makes you fat.” There are some good fats that will actually help to burn unwanted fat off your body. This is an example of one.
Myth #2: Coconut oil contains saturated fat so it must be bad for you.
Isabel says that sugar is to blame for weight gain, heart disease, and high cholesterol more than saturated fats. She sends some significant time in her Beyond Diet book about this so you can learn more there.
Isabel is also the recipe Queen! Her Beyond Diet program is packed with yummy recipes that use real, whole foods – healthy fats, breads, eggs, avocados, all good and good for you.
Once you move past the Cabbage Soup Diet and are looking for a long-term solution, I strongly suggest you look to Isabel and see how she can help you, too.
