You just saw some key results you can expect from a high-fat, low-carb diet. Undoubtedly for me, it’s been a gateway to an upgraded life, free of cravings and weight cycling. With ever more clinical studies being published in favour of the high-fat approach, there’s no reason that it couldn’t work for you too.

Addressing the Fear of Fat

Up until a couple of years ago, I was afraid to add unnecessary fat into my diet. As a guy who does strength training and regular exercise, I thought too much fat in my diet would make me gain weight quickly. I mean, after years of being fed ads for low-fat foods, who would comfortably go for a high-fat diet anyway?

However, consider this:

Have you noticed how it’s usually the people scared of adding healthy fats to their diet who are the ones finding it harder to lose weight? It’s true and it’s the reality for the majority of people in the fitness industry and beyond.

That’s not to say that low-fat diets don’t work. They do, but it’s all down to your limited daily calorie intake. Calories in versus calories out.

We don’t want that… Who’d want to starve themselves just to drop a few stubborn pounds? In addition to feeling like crap, there’s a couple more reasons why going low-fat won’t work:

  1. A low-fat diet is unsustainable. Eventually, you will gain back all the pounds you’ve lost, because joyless actions (and foods) never turn into habits. It’s crucial that your diet is a habit because it’s this automatic process that keeps you going and on track.
  2. It starves the brain. Due to limited calories, there’s fewer vital nutrients feeding your brain so you can expect your mental game to slip too. You’ve got to remember that the brain is largely made up of fat, so eating fat is crucial to maintain its building blocks and keep it thriving. If you’ve ever been on a high-fat diet, you’ll know what I mean when I talk about feeling a mental boost from eating fat.
  3. It carries increased risk of diabetes. The worst effect however comes if you are insulin resistant (genetic predisposition). You may end up diabetic[1]. Yes, even if you diet and ‘eat clean’, you could develop diabetes if your diet is low in fats and therefore high in carbohydrates.

“There is no such thing as an essential carbohydrate. . . . Anyone who tells you to start eating carbohydrates in order to fix a health problem is totally missing the point.” – Nora Gedgaudas

Simply put: carbohydrates are sugars.

They are broken down into glucose by your liver, thus affecting your blood glucose levels and milking the insulin to the max[2]. The effect is the same regardless if what you’ve eaten is a chocolate bar or rice. Even oatmeal or bananas. These all sound like the healthy choices that modern nutritionists recommend, right? Not if you’re insulin resistant. Based on the most recent data from 2012, 1 in 10 people in the USA are insulin resistant and these numbers are still growing according to the American Diabetes Association [3].

An Alternative to Conventional Dieting

So now that you have more information on why conventional dieting can be a disaster for some, what can you do? Yes, there is way to make dieting easy – to feel good and look good every day. The only thing required from you is to get past that fear of fat. You’ll need to reverse your diet completely: going low on carbohydrates (sugar) and instead increasing your healthy fat intake to the max. Here’s what one of my clients said after just a month of adopting the high-fat mindset and diet:

“Goodbye flab, hello muscle! I tried out a fat-adapted diet which has not only helped me reduce sugar cravings, completely relieve IBS symptoms within couple of days, but it also increased my productivity and concentration day-to-day (less hunger means less time wasted thinking about food). I’m loving my upgraded lifestyle!” – Helena (former client)

Still don’t believe it could work for you? Hold on for a little while longer. In the next chapters I’ll walk you through the biological hows of the high-fat, low-carb diet so you can understand why it works. Then I’ll give you specific instructions so you can give it a go yourself.
