You should avoid trans fats which are high in processed and baked foods.
Carbohydrates Can Increase Fats Too
Earlier, it was believed that carbohydrates do not cause fats and hence, dominated most of the diet plans. However, intake of too much of carbohydrates can also increase fats. If you over eat carbohydrates than the amount you burn, it gets converted into fats, which gets stored in belly area and other parts of the body.
Proteins Are Not Only For Body Builders
It’s a wrong conception that protein shakes are only needed by the body builders. Consumption of whey protein is essential and people who take it regularly have less body fat. So, it’s good that you drink protein shakes once in a day or few times in a week.
Do Not Cut On Dairy Products
Research has proved that cutting on dairy products can cause the body to make more fat cells. It’s the tendency of the body to make more fat cells if the body is lacking in calcium. If you stop intake of calcium, your bones may get weak therefore, the body start the release of a compound called calcitriol, which increases the production of fat cells. These fats accumulate around the bones to protect them.
