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

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?

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.

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

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

"Fat-burning" foods?: Foods don't burn fat, but there are some people trying to sell that idea. Our bodies are in balance. If we eat more calories than we use, we gain weight. If we eat FEWER calories than we use, we lose weight. People who stay the same weight eat more than they use on some days, and less than they use on other days... but it averages out over time. Eating FEWER calories than needed, will burn fat. ...Read more

I want to reduce weight..Please suggest me some fat burning food..I was 100 kg 7 months back..Now i m 77..But weight got stuck there..Help?

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/(depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, . ...Read more

Metabolism: The best way to increase your metabolism is to stay active (as in exercise, not just walking), and eat frequent small meals (3-5 meals a day). There is no herbal supplement or drug that will do this magically for you. The exception would be people with hypothyroidism who need to take synthroid (thyroxine) to make them euthyroid (and as a by product increases their metabolism). ...Read more
