Personal Trainer Denver CO explains that fat balance equals fat loss.
Ensure that 25-35% of your energy/calorie intake comes from fat, with your fat intake split equally between saturates (e.g. animal fat, coconut oil), monounsaturates (e.g., olive oil), and polyunsaturates (e.g. flax oil, salmon oil).
People in their teen years to the ripe old age of 80 can experience how cutting down on carbohydrates (for the great majority of Americans) and upping the right/correct/good/healthy fats will increase fat loss by accessing stored body fat for fuel. The key here is consuming the right fats.
I focus more on the balance of fat intake versus the other macronutrients in my Fat Loss Guidelines, because the other two (protein and carbohydrates) often fall into balance with it. I try to keep things as simple as possible. Do let me know how you think I’m doing with that.
Independent studies from Pepperdine University and Sansum Medical Research Foundation in Santa Barbara, California, have demonstrated that the 40/30/30 formula not only improves athletic performance significantly but also raises the level of the “good” cholesterol (HDL), is safe for diabetics and aids in weight loss. This works most of the time and can be modified to meet individual needs. For the greater part of the population, this is a good rule of thumb.
