If you have been busting your ass at the gym and sticking to that Keto diet and not losing weight or rather gaining, it might be the diet and not you, according a new study.
I know, I know it sucks to hear this shocking news but before you change up your diet (and always consult with your physician before starting or stopping a new diet or exercise plan) here is the skinny on this study.
It was conducted by the University of Aberdeen and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The two learning institutions joined forces and tried out the results on 30 mice—giving one group lots of fat and very little carbs and the other group little-to-no fact and low carbs as well.
Turns out, fat just might make you fat suggests the study. The group of mice that got lots of fat actually gained weight while the group of mice that had very little or zero fat and a low-carb diet maintained their rodent figures and gained no weight.
This doesn’t mean you should shovel in the sugar or blow off healthy eating. Instead, be mindful of the amount of fat in your diet and stick to a healthy low-carb diet.
In fact, many of the foods that are better for boosting your health AND YOUR SEX DRIVE contain a minimal amount of fat or rather contain the kind of good fats that our bodies need. Hint: it’s not the kind of fat in bacon.
So, have the burger but go lean on the fat.
