5 Biggest Weight Loss Mistakes eBook by Blanka Campbell

Would you like to learn about the 5 biggest weight-loss mistakes that you are making right now and how to avoid them?

As a nutritionist I see clients making the same dietary and lifestyle mistakes all over again.

Restrictive dieting, cheat meals, overeating, wrong food combinations or obsessive calorie counting.

In case you missed mistake #1 you can read it here.

What is mistake #2? AVOIDING HEALTHY FAT

You are buying low-fat products, or you avoid nuts & butter with a good intention to keep the calories low.

I know it seems counter-intuitive, but some fat can help you burn fat and make you feel full for longer.

There is a big difference between saturated fat from animal products (which can only be burned for energy or stored as FAT) and unsaturated fat from nuts and seeds and cold-pressed oils.

Your body depends on omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids and can’t produce them on its own.

  • 1/4 of your brain is made of omega 3 and a deficiency leads to poor memory and concentration.
  • Your hormones need omega 3 as building blocks to prevent mood swings, depression, PMS, sugar cravings and weight gain.
  • Your skin & arteries need good fat for cell membrane elasticity.
  • Fat act as a carrier and help to absorb fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K.

By now you know why you need to eat unsaturated fat.

👉 It is easy to include small fish (mackerel, salmon, sardines) into your meal plans.

👉 What about mixing a handful of seeds (flax seeds, pumpkin seeds) into your breakfast or sprinkle on your salad?

👉 Cut 1/2 avocado into your salad to feel fuller for longer.

👉 One spoon of peanut butter with an apple as a snack?

So easy isn’t it?
