Is it really possible to eat fat-rich products and not gain weight? Bright Side has found out that not all fats lead to cellulite formation. Some of them even help you to lose weight.
Avocado is known to be the most fat-rich plant in the world, the taste of which forms with the help of these fats. It contains oleic acid, which decreases the amount of cholesterol, stabilizes the level of glucose in the blood, and strengthens the immune system.
Butter is famous for its high calories. It is in popcorn, pancakes, burger buns, cutlets…and it is also used for frying steaks in restaurants. Not to mention cakes and cookies!
Conclusion: Guacamole and avocado salads will not harm your diet. Conversely, they will help you not to feel hungry and support your body in the fight against extra weight. We cannot say the same about butter.
Salmon has the effect of fast and long saturation as well as a large amount of vitamin A (for the beauty and health of skin) and omega acids (for preventing depression and arthritis).
Salami, like all sausage products, leads you directly to the kingdom of fat people. Moreover, it can contain starch, soy, offal, flour, and preservatives. Healthy salami contains only meat, lard, and spices.
Conclusion: Salmon with fresh lettuce is an ideal combination for a lunch rich in protein and cellulose. A sandwich with salami will only make you feel hungrier and tease your taste buds.
Eggs are a super product rich in protein, vitamins, antioxidants, and “good” fats. An egg contains only 85 kcal and has an amazing saturating feature. It also contains choline, which fights the excess fat in our body.
In a slice of bacon, there are about 42 kcal, more than 3 g of unhealthy saturated fats, and an enormous amount of salt (192 mg). That’s why it’s not the healthiest choice, even if you are not trying to lose weight.
Conclusion: Eggs are a good choice for healthy and nourishing breakfasts for those who are slimming. Again, we cannot say the same about fried eggs with bacon.
Nuts improve the metabolic processes in the body and help make you feel full (but not nuts with sugar, salt, honey, or butter!). They contain omega-3, cellulose, antioxidants, and linolenic acid, which suppresses the feeling of hunger.
Popcorn is a very caloric product that goes together with sugar, salt, flavorings, and fats. In cinemas, an adult can easily eat 200 g of salty or sweet popcorn, and that is 1,500 calories!
Conclusion: Almonds, walnuts, and hazelnuts can complement breakfasts and salads well. They are also a good movie snack that can easily replace popcorn.
Yogurt provides an instant boost of energy. This fat-rich product contains a sufficient amount of protein, calcium, and probiotics, which makes it one of the best products for weight loss.
Sour cream is the same thing as cream but after the fermentation process. Sour cream and its products with high-fat content are absolute enemies of a thin waist. The maximum you should allow is a few spoons of 12% sour cream a day.
Conclusion: A breakfast of Greek yogurt with fruit and chia seeds is a nice way to start a healthy morning. However, you will have to refuse sour cream.
Olive oil contains omega-9 (which helps to decrease cholesterol levels), reduces the appetite, quickens metabolism, and beneficially affects the stomach, skin, and hair.
Vegetable oil is a very caloric product, and one should limit its consumption to 1 tablespoon per day. And forget about using vegetable oil for frying!
Conclusion: There is no winner here. Both products are equally beneficial in natural form and contain almost the same amount of calories.
The fattiness and taste of cheese are on the same high level, but a gorgeous aroma lets us take just a small amount. Aged cheeses contain probiotics.
Cream is a bomb with calories that can turn a Thumbelina into a sumo wrestler. The dependency on this mild buttery taste can lead to increased cholesterol levels.
Conclusion: A good choice is mozzarella, tofu, cottage cheese, or feta. Though you will definitely have to cut back on cream in coffee, desserts, soups, and mashed potatoes.
The fatty layer in mutton contains saturated fatty acids, which fight with fatty tissues. Lamb meat also contains lecithin, which normalizes the body’s cholesterol metabolism.
Pork is harder to digest than mutton due to its high fat and calorie content. But it has many nutrients and minerals. Eating too much pork will lead to obesity.
Conclusion: Mutton is a great source of protein and vital nutrients. In order to reduce the caloric content of the dish, it is better to cut off all visible fat from the meat. Thus, a leg of lamb will beat a baked pork brisket.
