Almost all nutritious food has fat in it. Fats are used for a variety of purposes including transporting vital nutrients to cells, assisting in digestion of certain foods, and providing us with energy in times of nutrient depletion. To be healthy you can’t, and shouldn’t, stay away from fat. Still we find ourselves asking:
How much fat should I eat in a day?
What are the pros and cons of eating low-fat or fat-free?
What kind of fat should I be eating most?
Which foods provide healthy fats and which foods will kill me quickly?
It all depends on a couple factors:
- Current bodyweight
- Dietary goals
- Cholesterol profile
- Activity level
- Time of day
The American Heart Association recommends limiting dietary fat to 30% of total calories. Take into consideration however, if you are overweight, need to lower blood cholesterol, or have another medical concern, you may need less than the recommended 30%.
Why do I Need to Eat Fat?
Fats are vital to many of the body’s primary functions, specifically digestion and nutrient absorption. The main form of fat found in food and also found in the body, makes up most of the body’s stored energy. You may have heard of these type of fats before, we call them triglycerides. When your body is at rest or performing activity of a low intensity, it generates most of its energy from free fatty acids, which are released from the body’s stores of triglycerides.
The calories in fat molecules (9 calories per gram) provide more than twice as much energy as carbs and protein (4 calories per gram). This is especially true in a glycogen depleted state, in which the body turns to fat for nearly all of its energy.
Lipids (fats) in foods transport fat-soluble vitamins to the intestines. This facilitates the absorption of of many vital nutrients such as A ,D, E and K. You risk developing deficiencies for some of these nutrients without an adequate amount of fat in your diet.
Eating foods that are high in fat helps us moderate our appetite through two means:
- fat satiates hunger; you feel more satisfied after eating when you consume a meal higher in fat
- since fat digests slower than carbs or protein, the presence of fat in the digestive system slows down the digestion process. This means a higher fat meal will stay in your stomach longer than a lower fat meal.
You might find yourself faced with increased hunger when your intake of calories from fat is reduced below 20% of total caloric intake.
Omega-3s and Omega-6s, the essential fatty acids, need to be ingested as part of the diet, as they cannot be manufactured within the body. These nutrients are the essential building blocks of compounds and molecules that are responsible for performing vital bodily functions such as helping blood to clot, immune system response, and blood pressure regulation. In women, the essential fatty acids also aid in healthy childbirth. The essential fatty acids can be found in foods containing soybean or canola oil, as well as in sardines, tuna, and salmon.
We also need to be aware that when fat is removed from most foods, the food manufacturers usually add carbohydrates in order to preserve a desirable taste and texture. Typically these carbohydrates are the worst kind of carbs for your body as they are mostly high-glycemic, processed refined sugars. Many low-fat and fat-free products remain energy dense for just this reason, since they still contain a high concentration of calories from carbohydrates rather than fat.
We always need to remember that the source of our calories counts. Whether they come from fat, protein, or carbs we always need to be sure to use moderation when choosing portion sizes, even when eating fat-reduced foods. By now everyone is aware that the increasing variety of lower fat items is directly proportional to the American average weight going up, up, up. Eating reduced fat or fat free is not the solution for weight loss. In fact, eating too many of these foods over the course of our childhood, teenage, and young adult years, can often lead to nasty diseases such as adult-onset type II diabetes.
Why Should I Stay Away From Fat?
The answer is simple: you shouldn’t. The folks that should really stay away from fat the most are those with high cholesterol, and even then, they should be sure to consume the proper ratio and amounts of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids to stay healthy. If you have been told by your doctor that you need to reduce cholesterol, you should attempt to stay away from pork, beef, and eggs. Also check labels often for cholesterol content, because something like a salad dressing might contain more cholesterol than you think.
If you are extremely overweight, you will probably want to go easy on the fat only because it is so calorie dense. But in the same respect, if you are willing to bring your carbohydrate intake under 100 grams per day, then you should replace those lost carbs with protein and healthy fats.
When Should I Stay Away From Fat?
During the day you will probably want to stay away from fat late at night, and anytime near or around a workout. You want glycogen to be readily available, so you won’t want slow down digestion by consuming fat before or during a workout. Doing so would also steal blood away from your extremities to send to the stomach to assist with digestion. It may sound petty, but every little bit counts. You also want to get fat-free glycogen back into the muscles ASAP after training. Therefore your post workout shake should contain 0 grams of fat if possible. My post workout shake contains, no sugar added apple sauce, cinnamon, waxy maze (Dymatize Flud), and Quattro Protein.
In conclusion we can say that fat is good. Deriving 30-40% of your daily calories from fat is acceptable. Try to eat healthy fats from fruits, veggies, fish, eggs, nuts, and canola/soybean/olive oil. Minimize trans fats and saturated fats, making sure not to eat fats that are solid at room temperature like butter and animal fat. Try not to cook with fat either, since cooking healthy fats actually makes them unhealthy fats.
Eating a lower calorie, higher protein, higher healthy fat, lower carb kind of diet is one sure way to stay healthy and lose some weight. This is the type of lifestyle that can be permanent and effective!
Best Boot Camp!!
I am so happy with Wired Fitness’ Bootcamp workouts! I have been working out with Bryan and the other trainers for over 6 years now, and have to say it is by far the best work out around. I continue to be challenged week after week, and what I love is the variety of workouts that we do. It is always different, so you don’t get bored like you might in a gym or running. Trust me, if you want to get in shape or stay in shape, try Wired Fitness and you will be so happy you did!
Best one hour workout ever!!!
I’m a runner, and I go to the gym on a regular basis, but it’s nothing compared to the this boot camp. I’ve never been a group workout person, but now I can say I’m officially a fan. The trainers are great and friendly, always there to help, at least two trainers per session that has a group more than 5 persons. Bryan, Alvin and Amber are awesome trainers. Come out and try it and you will see it’s the best investment on yourself ever.
As I go on my third year with Wired Fitness I can honestly say I AM ADDICTED! When I first started the classes I had not done any type of physical activity since I had my first son 9 years ago and was still carrying around the baby weight. In just a few short months the pounds and inches melted off. All 20 of them! Since then I have had my second son and was able to maintain my works out through my 5th month of pregnancy. When I came back to the classes 8 weeks after having my son it was difficult but the trainers catered to my needs and were able to help me lose all of my pregnancy weight in 3 months!! I’m in better shape now than I have ever been. All the trainers are great and cater to every level of fitness. A special shot out to Amber at Eastlake who always keeps me motivated and challenged 🙂
WOW! No Looking Back…
I’ve been active my whole adult life… bike racing/touring, swimming, triathlons: a marathon, a handful of half-ironman’s, and countless centuries… always been aerobically fit, but in my late 40’s, I felt like I’ve been slowing down and putting on more lbs… after a particularly busy spring, work-wise, I heard about this workout my friends were doing and decided to give it a try… WOW, No looking back! I’ve never had my butt thrashed as consistently and thoroughly as in these 1 hour workouts… Always different, always fun, all the trainers are top notch–supportive and friendly… I’ve been attending 3-4 times per week, and incidentally (it was never a goal), I’ve dropped 25+ lbs and put on some lean muscle… I look forward to these workouts all the time, and on those rare occasions when I have to miss one, I have serious withdrawals…. I can’t more highly recommend giving Wired Fitness a shot for your next workout!
San Diego’s ‘Best’ Outdoor Fitness Class
San Diego Bootcamp, Best Outdoor Bootcamp, Premiere Functional Outdoor Bootcamp
Loving every minute of it…Going on 3 years with Wired Fitness and loving every minute of it!!! Prior to joining I had tried multiple gyms, bootcamps, and different workout routines but nothing kept me motivated enough to work out consistently on a regular basis. The challenge I get from these workouts is addicting and keeps me attending 3-4 classes a week!! Every workout is a unique experience and is constantly varied. The work outs are high intensity and the trainers accommodate every level of fitness. Three weeks ago I completed my first Triathlon and I owe it all to Wired Fitness. If it wasn’t for the energy and strength I discovered in these workouts, I would have never thought capable of achieving such endurance. To think that 4 years ago I came off the couch from not having done any physical activity in over a decade, suffering from high blood pressure/cholesterol…to where I am now!! I’ve had the privilege of working out with every trainer at Wired Fitness and have enjoyed each trainers exclusive approach! Special shot out to Amber from their Eastlake class and of course to Bryan “The Muscle Man” Schuler from Mission Bay!! Wired Fitness has a “Lifer” in me and I’m confident you will be too if you give them a try.
Total body conditioning…Wired Fitness has been a great way for me to receive total body conditioning! I’ve worked out with weights and body conditioning classes for body tone for most of life. Wired Fitness gave me another way to accomplish even more. The variety of exercises and equipment along with cardio have kept the program fun and yet challenging! If you’re looking to get toned, test yourself in a variety of exercises, get your body trim and to sweat a lot, give it a try-you’ll like it!
I saw immediate changes…When I first started working out with Bryan at Wired Fitness I was injured and couldn’t do some of the exercises. Bryan was quick to modify the exercises for me. Now he watches my form to make sure I do the exercises correctly so I don’t re-injure myself. The workout challenges your endurance and your strength. I saw changes happen in my ability from the first class.
This Workout Will Kick Your Butt!Bootcamp isn’t for everyone. These classes are challenging and hard. Even if you think you are in shape, if you go to the gym regularly, you will be surprised at how tired you get in these classes. But don’t give up! If you stick with it your endurance will build and you will see results. Personally, I love group classes. They motivate me and push me to work harder. Some people, my husband included, prefer to work out alone. That’s totally fine, and in that case, bootcamp may not be for you. But if you are looking for a workout that is different and will kick your butt, give it a try! Hopefully you will love it as much as I do….2 years later!
Absolutely love it!I have been going to Wired Fitness’ Boot Camp in Mission Bay for over 6 months and absolutely love it! It sounds cliche, but I really have seen great results from going 3 times a week. I love the group setting, how closely Bryan watches our form, and how challenging it is. I like that they create the hard workouts for me! I have been to classes with Alvin as well, and love them all! Boot Camp isn’t for everyone. So, come with realistic expectations of your fitness level and what boot camp means…after all, it is named after military workouts.
Renewed enthusiasm for physical fitness…I spent the summer in San Diego and through the recommendation of a trusted friend, went to check out Wired Fitness Bootcamps. I was NOT disappointed except when I had to move at the end of the summer! Bryan and his staff are professional and accommodating while still adhering to the highest quality for their clients. But enough about the administrative efforts – the workouts were incredible: unique, motivating, extremely challenging and exciting all rolled into an hour. I learned a lot about my athletic abilities (strengths and weaknesses) this summer through being challenged by Wired Fitness instructors and walked away with renewed enthusiasm for physical fitness. I’m looking forward to returning to San Diego in the future and getting back into regular Wired Fitness Bootcamps!
Best Boot Camp!!I am so happy with Wired Fitness’ Bootcamp workouts! I have been working out with Bryan and the other trainers for over 6 years now, and have to say it is by far the best work out around. I continue to be challenged week after week, and what I love is the variety of workouts that we do. It is always different, so you don’t get bored like you might in a gym or running. Trust me, if you want to get in shape or stay in shape, try Wired Fitness and you will be so happy you did!
Worth every penny…I started going to boot camp in April because my girlfriend had been going for a year and loved it! I bought ten classes and joined her at the Carmel Valley location. I have never seen results so quickly. I originally dreaded going to class and now I love it! Bryan is an awesome trainer and genuinely cares about your fitness goals. If you ever want to challenge yourself try a Wired class! It’s an awesome workout and worth every penny.
Mid-50’s…Strength increased dramaticallyI am 56 years young; post menopausal female; 50 pounds over weight; who has not exercised in over 25 years. When I started boot camp I had not been able to run, at all. I have arterial disease, specific to my legs, so even walking was a problem. Today, less than 90 days later, just going twice a week, Bryan has managed to not only get me running, but my strength and agility have increased tremendously. Every class I attend makes me stronger and my family has commented on the improvements made. Thanks to “Wired Fitness” and the programs they offer I now know that I can still make a difference in my life. Thank you Bryan, I will forever be grateful for your training.
I’ve been going to Wired Fitness Bootcamps about two years now and I love it! I have a knee injury and when I first started I had to wear a knee brace. I wasn’t able to run, jump, or even skip. Bryan and his staff modified the exercises for me so that I still got a killer work out every time. Over that last couple years I’ve been able to strengthen my knee by going to Wired Fitness Bootcamp classes regularly and haven’t had to wear my brace recently. And, I’ve even been able to start running again! I am so glad I joined, it was just what I needed to get back into exercising after being injured. Every class is different and after two years I still feel challenged. I recommend Wired Fitness to all of my family and friends that are looking for a great workout!
Killer workout every time!
