Caroline: Hi everyone!
I’m Caroline with Fit Trim Happy and today I’m excited to be here with Emily Spicer who is a nutritionist exercise physiologist and health coach.
So Emily, one thing I know you’ve talked about is that fats and carbs often get a really bad reputation in the weight loss world.
Why do you think that is and why should people not be scared of them?SPECIAL: New Research Reveals How to Get Your Brain to Tell Your Body to Burn More Fat
Emily: You should not be afraid of fats. You need fat in your diet. Fats should not be called fats they should be called lipids.
People often think if they eat fats they will get fat and that’s simply just not the case. That’s like saying if you eat a blueberry you’ll turn blue.
It’s important to remember that a gram of fat has 9 calories per gram while a gram of carbs has 4 calories per gram and a gram of protein has 4 calories per gram as well.
This makes fat basically twice as dense when compared to carbs and protein. So fat calories add up really quickly. But that shouldn’t deter you from eating healthy fats.
Healthy fats are important for hormones, absorbing vitamins and minerals, and even keeping your hair nice and shiny.
If you didn’t regularly eat fat you would be deficient in a ton of vitamins and minerals.
People are also super scared of consuming carbs. Carbs are not bad. Carbs are what your brain runs on.
When you are exercising, carbs are your first line of energy that your body uses for fuel. Whole grains, fruits and vegetables are great sources of carbs.
But with everything in life it’s all about balance.

Even this recent groundbreaking study proves that carbs alone are not the reason why people are unable to shed fat.
This study, a favorite of a “Maverick” Ivy League-trained doctor, even shows that there is a specific kind of food that you can eat before you eat carbs…
This means you can totally indulge in cheesy pasta… bread… and all the pastries you can dream of… without feeling guilty or packing on the pounds.
