The nutrient density of chia seeds is amazing! One ounce (or approximately two tablespoons) contains 11 grams fiber, four grams protein and nine grams fat. This will help you not overeat. It takes only one to three tablespoons of this to add to your smoothies, salads, or sides.
This fat-melting food deserves more attention than it receives. Lecithin, once the hottest diet ingredient, is now a natural fatty compound that can be found in animal and plant tissues. It helps maintain cell membranes healthy, flexible, and nourished. A tablespoon of sunflower or non GMO soybean lecithin can be added to your morning smoothie. It melts fat from your hips and thighs, and breaks it down so your body can use the nutrients it needs. It can also thin out the bile which is particularly important for women who are twice as likely to develop gallstones than men. High estrogen levels can cause gallstones to form due to increased cholesterol and hormone replacement therapy. Lecithin is a natural substance that helps move the bile and thin it.
It is time to forget about your fear of fat. Coconut oil has been shown to be safe and extremely effective in reducing abdominal fat in men and women. You can lower your belly fat by adding two to three tablespoons of this tasty “skinny oil” to your diet. It will also increase your good HDL cholesterol. Two studies have shown coconut oil’s effectiveness in reducing belly fat for both men and women. One study involved women and men receiving two tablespoons daily of coconut oil over a 12-week period. Both men and women saw a decrease in their waist circumferences at the end of the study. Women also saw an increase in HDL cholesterol. The abundance of antioxidants in coconuts and coconut oil makes them an anti-aging food. They also improve thyroid function, digestion, and absorption fat-soluble vitamins. Additionally, they promote conversion of cholesterol to pregnenolone which is a precursor of many important hormones.
