Get Fat to Get Fit Fast

Getting enough of the good fats will help you lose fat,
build muscle, and recover faster from your workouts.
In addition, it has myriad health benefits, including being
good for your heart.

Good fats include: polyunsaturated (especially Omega-3's),
such as those from fish and nuts, as well as monosaturated fats,
such as those from peanut butter, olive oil, egg yolks, and fish
oil.

Bad fats include saturated fats from things such as animal
and coconut fats. Then there is the worst kind of fat the man
made kind, trans fatty acids which can be found in our typical,
of no redeeming value, junk foods such cookies, chips, fries
and margarine.

Limit, if not stay completely away from, the bad fats and try
to get about 30 - 35% of your calories from the good fats.

"Studies show that higher-fat diets make more sense for fit
people than low-fat diets," says Liz Applegate, Ph.D., author of
Encyclopedia of Sports & Fitness Nutrition. "In one study,
endurance athletes ran up to 24 percent longer before they fatigued
when they ate a diet that was above 30 percent fat compared to one
that was below 20 percent," she says.

More importantly to most readers of this newsletter, researchers
are now beginning to realize the fact that a nutrition plan high in
the good fats helps the body to burn fat. Omega-3 fatty acids increase
the size of your cells' fuel-burning furnaces so your metabolic rate rises
and you burn more calories every minute of every day.

Omega-3's also help your body's sensitivity to insulin. This helps
your body store less fat. In addition, the fat you do store is more
readily and easily converted into energy and burned during activity.
This keeps your blood sugar levels stable and keeps you away from those
famed sugar crashes and cravings and irritable mood swings.

Another important exercise effect is that Omega-3's also help your
body produce testosterone, the hormone responsible for building new
muscle. The late Dan Duchaine has called the essential fatty acids
the most anabolic legal food supplement one can take to build muscle.

Of course, more muscle equals more


calorie burning equals less body fat.

Fat can also help you recover from your workouts. Vitamins A, D, E
and K are fat-soluble and are very important antioxidants in the muscle-
building, bone-repairing category.

As I mentioned above, fat also helps your heart. Omega-3 fatty acids
and monounsaturated fats help lower bad LDL cholesterol and help prevent
blood clots, making your heart able to do it's job with less stress.

On a personal note, I suggested my favorite essential fatty acid
supplements to a friend of mine recently who has always suffered from
high cholesterol, despite working out five plus times a week and eating
a very healthy diet.

I'm going to quote the email she sent to me. I love getting stuff like
this.

"I was at a demo this morning, from 10-2, and it was at a gym that was
having a members appreciation day, so they had other tables set up.

This guy who had a table next to mine was doing blood pressure tests and
cholesterol tests.

When it slowed down and bit he asked me if I wanted my cholesterol done.
I told him it would probably be pretty high, it's been over 230 for the
last few years.

I told him about the marine oil supplements I was taking and told him I
have been taking them only about 7 weeks or so, and he told me he'd check
my cholesterol, to see if the supplements are bringing it down any.

I got a reading of 150!!!

He thought maybe he did it wrong, so he did it AGAIN, on my other hand,
(pin prick and blood taken) and it read 150 AGAIN!! Exactly!

He got all excited and asked me for the n3inc website!

I told him I have not changed my diet OR exercise -- the only thing I
am doing different is taking ResQ 1250 and ResQ LDL-X.

I hear testimonials like this time and time again from people who
take these supplements. Making sure you get a proper supply of the
good fats will go a long way toward a healthy life and the fit, toned
sexy body that you want.
