About the Book:
Counteract the Fat – a cutting edge new nutrition, diet, health, weight and cholesterol control paperback release – is a compilation of research findings on how fiber and antioxidants can counteract the physiological effects of junk food. Discover 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, and can cause 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 are absorbed by our bodies and stored as fat, and 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.
☤ High-fat foods can trigger heart attacks by causing blood clotting elements in the bloodstream known as platelets to become more adhesive and clump together, triggering the formation of abnormal blood clots in the heart artery. Abnormal blood clots can eventually trigger heart attacks. Fiber counteracts that effect by speeding the mechanisms in which abnormal blood clots dissolve, thus decreasing the likelihood that abnormal blood clots will lead to heart attacks.
☤ High-fat foods raise blood levels of fat and cholesterol, which can prevent insulin from attaching to our cells' insulin receptors and make blood sugar unavailable to cells. Without sugar, cells lack fuel – leading to symptoms such as fatigue and dizziness. When sugar is unavailable to cells, it builds up in the bloodstream and becomes toxic, eventually damaging the eyes, kidneys, nerves, immune system, heart and blood vessels – opening the door to type II diabetes. Both fiber and the antioxidant vitamin C counteract that effect by promoting healthy blood levels of fat and cholesterol, thus allowing insulin to attach to our cells' insulin receptors and thus making blood sugar available to cells. This prevents the sugar from building up in the bloodstream and becoming toxic – thus preventing damage to vital organs and reducing our risk of type II diabetes.
