Eat and Lose Weight - Its All in those MCTs

Can You Lose Weight Through Eating?

You get fat when you consume more calories than you burn during exercise and rest. So, it doesn't seem reasonable to assume that eating and thus taking in calories will help you lose weight. However, recent studies show that foods such as olive oil, nuts, green tea and dairy products can help control weight. These foods contain a lot of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs)

There is much support for the notion that MCTs in these foods stop hunger. After a relatively low portion, because you feel saturated, you lessen your craving for food.

Yes, I know it sounds strange. Nuts have been on the weight loss blacklist for years, but peanuts suppress the hunger feeling and are also an excellent source of protein. So, yes, in a way, eating can help you lose weight, but of course, it's not a replacement for a healthy diet.

In fact, these foods can only help you get your energy balance back to normal. By energy balance, I mean the balance between taking in calories and burning them. It should come as no surprise that when you intake more calories than you can burn you become fat.

Eating too much and exercising too little are the main reasons for upsetting the energy balance. Food that is rich in MCTs helps you to stop eating too much. Still, exercising is something that you have to do yourself. In my opinion, you can enjoy great food without growing fat. Eating well means being conscious about what you eat. Enjoy food consciously instead of unconsciously devouring, for instance, a bag of potato chips on the couch while watching TV.

On our website, we feature a lot of low-carb and low-fat recipes that might help. We also have a section about seafood. Fish and shellfish are high in protein and low in fat!

For example, shrimp really is a giant of a food. Shrimp has a high Omega 3 fatty acids content, is very rich in protein, vitamins D, B12 and B6. Omega 3 fatty acids combat coronary disease and are even linked to positive mood change.

So, have a shrimp cocktail to fight the "winter blues"!. Studies also suggest that a protein rich diet increases your metabolic rate. So, you burn off calories faster.

Time for a closer look at seafood and shrimp recipes?
