A type of TRANS Fat that makes you leaner?

A type of TRANS Fat that makes you leaner?

We all know that trans fats are horrible for your health right? But what if I told you that there is a specific type of trans fat that’s natural (not man-made) and actually helps you to lose fat faster and build lean muscle?

We’re talking about a specific type of healthy fat found naturally in certain types of meat and dairy… it’s called Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA).

Not many people know this fact, but CLA is actually a natural form of trans fat, but it is FAR different than the artificial trans fats from hydrogenated oils that are so deadly and that you hear all of the negative information about. CLA is actually one of the only healthy trans fats in existence.

CLA is a natural form of healthy trans fat that occurs in the fat on the meat, and in the dairy from ruminant animals such as cattle, bison, deer, goats, sheep, kangaroo, etc. CLA in natural form has been shown to help in burning off abdominal fat and also maintaining or even building lean muscle.

Warning: do NOT use CLA supplements as they contain an artificially created form of CLA that is a different CLA isomer compared to the natural CLA isomer that’s found in meats and dairy from ruminant animals. The CLA isomer found in CLA supplements can have negative effects in the body and is more similar to an artificial trans fat.

The only form of CLA is that going to benefit your health and help you to reduce body fat is the natural CLA isomers from grass-fed beef, bison, venison, etc or from grass-fed raw milk or cheeses.

Also, grass-fed meats and dairy contain 3-5x the CLA of grain fed meats, so avoid your typical grain-fed grocery store meats and seek out grass-fed meats.

So that is the reason why I focused more on red meats such as grass-fed beef and bison during a recent 23-day “cutting” cycle instead of chicken, turkey, or fish — because the extra CLA can really help in accelerating fat loss and preserving lean muscle.

There you have it… there actually IS such a thing as a healthy trans fat… bet you didn’t know that!

    Losing stubborn belly fat is a problem that most of us have. The problem is that there are way too many myths out there as to what works and what doesn’t. I made a ton of mistakes before I discovered the right way to lose abdominal fat. I’m now proud to say that I’ve lost the nasty belly fat and have become leaner and fitter.

    The following are the 3 major mistakes we all make:

    1) There is an overwhelmingly strong belief that sits ups and crunches and a whole host of isolation exercises for your abdominals is the only way to develop a six pack. It turns out that they have no impact at all in losing abdominal fat

    2) I’ve never enjoyed cardio, but like everyone, I’ve put myself through the pain of running in the park and the gym, hoping that it will help me lose weight. I was horrified to learn that the type of cardio that we all engage in actually slows down your metabolic rate to the point that this type of cardio is detrimental.

    3) The net is full of the latest diet regime. I must admit to getting sucked in by pills and eating regimes that would help me lose all my body fat within weeks. They are fads and are not the answer to long term weight loss and health. Don’t be fooled by them.

    To my horror I found out that most low-carb or low-fat diets were actually working against what my body needed to become lean and ripped not just for now but for life! I developed an understanding of how food effected my body and which food groups worked and which didn’t. I had to change my style of eating in order to achieve the maximum benefit. Food is an important part of my life and I wanted to be able to enjoy it. I feel that my diet is now balanced without being overly restrictive.
