When eating something what makes you fat besides calories? Trans fat. Sugar saturated fat calories from fat. etc...?

Not enough activity: The simple formula which determines if you gain or lose weight is Calories taken in minus Calories used. Taken on a day to day basis, you can know if you are using up the calories or not. If calories eaten far exceeds calories burned up by whatever activity, weight is gained.

What are some foods that will assist in ultimate fat burn pre&post workout?

Gimick?: There are plenty of "experts" who will try to sell you on a "fat burn" diet or supplement. Don't waste your time, money, or health. Sure, there are some food groups that are "healthy" choices--weight watchers assigns zero points to fruits and vegetables--so enjoy hefty servings of these. But for weight loss in general, there is no substitute for exercise, portion control, & alcohol curtailment. ...Read more

Not so with Stevia: No. A study I found (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195666310000826) showed that with Stevia, there was no craving. Also, there was no increase in insulin levels, unlike with aspartame, which is important regarding the issue of insulin resistance. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Does eating high fat but low carb foods make you lose weight but higher cholesterol levels or is ingested fats also stored as fat in our bodies?

Does eating high fat but low carb foods make you lose weight but higher cholesterol levels or is ingested fats also stored as fat in our bodies?

Fat has calories: Fatty foods are packed with calories, twice the number of carbs or proteins for the same amount of food. So high fat is not going to help you lose weight just because you are avoiding starches and sugars (carbs). Your total calorie intake needs to go down and/or your exercise up to lose weight. Start reading labels with portion size and calorie content as well as the breakdown carb/protein/fats. ...Read more

Is grapefruit really an excellent fat burning fruit? What, if any, are other fat burning fruits or foods in general?

Is grapefruit really an excellent fat burning fruit? What, if any, are other fat burning fruits or foods in general?

Not exactly but...: Grapefruit doesn't have magical "fat-burning" properties but may help one lose weight as they are low in calories, high in fiber & have beneficial antioxidants. Eating half a grapefruit before meals can fill you up so you consume less high-calorie foods. See http://www.webmd.com/diet/ss/slideshow-fat-fighting-foods for other ideas.

Apart from healthy eating,to gain more nutrition-good idea to make hot chocolate with nutritionally rich cocoa powder,vanilla extract & stevia daily?

Sounds good: So good, in fact, that if this is what you want to drink, drink it and don't even worry whether this is our idea of a perfect ideal beverage choice. If you are healthy, just staying physically fit is much more important than obsessing over food choices. I would bet you know this already. Enjoy the chocolate. ...Read more

Marketing NotReality: No such thing as "fat burning food". This is primarily an invented schizophrenic marketing delusion. Humm... Intake atoms/molecules to make other atoms/molecules/cells vanish.

Are those "fat free" salad dressings bought in the store really fat free? Which salad dressings are really fat free? I like ranch and zesty italian.

Avoid Fat Free: Yes. If they label this then there are laws. But, remember this is the worst products to buy in stores. Fat is not the cause of the obesity epidemic we have. Sugar is the demon. Fat free products are often stuffed full of sugars, especially concentrated fructose corn syrup. This one product is the biggest cause of our failure to really lose weight with dieting and a cause of the diabetes epidemi. ...Read more
