Your body requires fat to metabolize food properly. Body cells are surrounded by membranes made of fat. The fat helps membranes stay flexible so nutrients can be absorbed into cells and burned for energy. This process releases toxins from the body and speeds slimming.
Without a certain amount of fat, cell membranes become stiff and hard. When this happens, nutrients can’t enter the cell to be burned for energy.
Many today are deficient in lecithin, a natural occurring compound in nature. Lecithin is the fat compound needed to keep cells healthy and pliable. Why are we deficient in lecithin?
We’re trying to stay healthy. We avoid many foods high in this nutrient because many of them are also high in cholesterol (egg yolks, margarine, fatty red meat, etc.) If we’re avoiding these high cholesterol fats, we need to replace them with “good fats” that include lecithin. Good fats include olive oil, avocados, coconut oil and butter.
Not only does lecithin help you lose weight, it speeds up your metabolism and you have more energy. It helps boost immunity, improves cholesterol, reduces fatigue, and relieves menopausal symptoms. You burn more fat from your thighs, hips and stomach areas.
Avoid processed foods like chips, cookies and cake, with damaging fats in them – margarine, soybean oil, palm oil, vegetable oil, cottonseed oil, hydrogenated oil and grape seed oil.
Enjoy berries, sweet potatoes, nuts, nut butters, eggs, seafood, poultry, seeds, lean red meat and leafy greens guilt free.
