The Three Ingredient Recipe For Burning FatFat loss isn’t about deprivation. And staying trim isn’t about having good genes. It’s about hormonally programming your body to burn fat.

And that’s exactly what these easy-to-follow tips will do for you! In fact, not only does this way of eating work to shed fat fast, it will help you keep it off forever!

Here are the three fat-melting mantras you must follow to unveil a sleeker, sexier YOU:

1. Stop the Blood Sugar Spike. Eating carb- and sugar-rich foods spikes your blood sugar and causes your body to produce insulin, the “fat-storage hormone”. The number one way to send your body the metabolic message to slim down and burn fat is to limit carbs, keep your sugar intake low and avoid grains.

2. Power Up Your Fat Burning with Protein. Protein is the most thermogenic or fat burning nutrient on the planet. That’s because it stimulates glucagon, the “weight loss hormone”. But be sure to choose clean proteins like grass-fed dairy products and pastured, cage-free eggs. Otherwise, you’ll get a hefty dose of obesogens, compounds that mess up your metabolism and stifle your weight loss efforts. Be sure to include a source of protein at every meal or snack.

3. Feast on Fat. Think a low-fat diet is the way to a sleeker you? Think again. Healthy fats like those found in wild coldwater fish and those in nuts, nut flours, avocados, and olive oil (called monounsaturated fats) are metabolic power ingredients. Another healthy fat to include is coconut oil. As a medium chain triglyceride (MCT), the body uses these unique fats for fuel, not storage.

And what about saturated fats? If you’re eating grass-fed products (like butter, milk, ghee, kefir) you’re getting an excellent fat profile that includes a very unique fat-burning fat called conjugated linolenic acid (CLA). CLA is so effective at burning fat that it is made into a supplement for that very purpose. To keep your metabolism cranking on all cylinders, be sure to include a serving of healthy fats at every meal.
