Many of us love junk foods. What we don’t love are the medical conditions and weight gain that they are associated with. Research findings indicate that fiber and antioxidants can counteract the physiological effects of junk foods. This does not mean that we can eat as much fat as we want to. What it does mean is GREATER FREEDOM IN MAKING FOOD CHOICES! Counteract the Fat is a compilation of these research findings, providing cutting edge information on how fiber and antioxidants can help prevent medical conditions and weight gain associated with high-fat and other unhealthy great-tasting foods. The discussed Counteract the Fat concepts include:
☤ High-fat foods produce cholesterol-related acids that can clog arteries and raise cholesterol levels – opening the door to heart disease. Fiber counteracts that effect by nabbing cholesterol-related acids and removing them from our bodies, thus promoting healthy cholesterol levels and reducing our risk of heart disease.
☤ The excess calories in high-fat foods are absorbed by our bodies and stored as fat, which causes us to gain weight – opening the door to obesity. Fiber counteracts that effect by nabbing calories before they can be absorbed and stored as fat, thus making it harder for us to gain weight and reducing our risk of obesity.
☤ High-fat foods increase our exposure to “free radicals,” which attack and damage healthy human cells – opening the door to cancer, heart disease and many other conditions. Antioxidants counteract that effect by neutralizing free radicals, thus preventing and reversing cellular damage and reducing our risk of cancer, heart disease and many other conditions.
☤ The excess calories in high-fat foods can cause us to gain weight – opening the door to obesity. Antioxidants counteract that effect by giving our bodies the energy needed to burn fat more efficiently, thus making it harder for us to gain weight and reducing our risk of obesity.
