Replacing Saturated Fats With Polyunsaturated Fats Is Good But Not Sufficient To Get Rid Of Body Fat



In America and other advanced countries, doctors advise their patients to reduce their consumption of saturated fats such as butter in order to reduce weight thus preventing heart disease. Patients are counseled to replace their diets containing saturated fats with diets rich in polyunsaturated fats as to reduce the risk of contracting heart disease. This is commendable as Harvard School of Public Health Researchers reviewed eight studies with a total of 13,614 participants and found that those who replaced saturated fats in their diet with polyunsaturated fats had a 19 per cent lower risk of coronary heart disease than those who did not make the switch. These studies provide conclusive evidence from randomized clinical trials that there is a benefit in switching from saturated fats to polyunsaturated fats. And moreover, according to the study published online in March 23 on the journal PLoS Medicine “for every five per cent increase in polyunsaturated fat consumption found in most vegetable oils, coronary heart disease risk was reduced by 10 per cent”.

To get rid of unwanted body fats, Is switching to diets with polyunsaturated fats the only requirement?

Even though researchers have proved beyond reasonable doubt that it is worth switching from diets with saturated fats to ones with polyunsaturated fats but that is not adequate to achieve a significant result in a patient`s bid to get rid of excess weight.

“in the midst of America’s obesity epidemic, physicians frequently advise their patients to reduce the number of calories they are consuming on a daily basis. This research shows that simply dieting will not likely cause substantial weight loss. Instead, dieting and exercise must be combined to achieve this goal,” explained Judy Cameron PH.D., a Senior Scientist at OHSU`s Oregon National Primate Research Center, and a Professor of Behavioral Neuroscience and Obstetrics & Gynecology in the OHSU School of Medicine, as well as a Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh. However, there is no specific number of hours somebody should exercise in a day but it is advisable to work out at least 45minutes daily. There are so many exercises one can indulge in but it is always better to ascertain one’s state of health before engaging in any.

Consuming 1-2 gallons of water daily is advisable. This is because water helps to flush out harmful toxins and parasites in the system and it enhances body metabolism. Moreover. It is very easy to get rid of water weight.It is advisable to take good quantity of water in the morning before taking breakfast. The water therapy has been helpful to millions of people world wide.

Dieting combined with exercise helps faster to lose excess pounds in the belly and body. So, why not combine both now and smile for ever.
