What kind of fat is good for me?
Not all fats are created equal. There are four major types of dietary fats in our food: saturated fats, trans fats, monounsaturated fats, and polyunsaturated fats. Saturated and trans fats are bad fats. They’re responsible for things like an increased risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems and more.
Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, like those found in SuperFat, are good fats. They’re instrumental in controlling weight, lowering cholesterol, boosting metabolism, and even aid in healthy brain function.
Which diet is right for me if I want to lose weight?
While SuperFat has keto, paleo, gluten-free and vegan certifications, we don’t recommend anyone diet over another. Everyone is different and therefore, what works for one person may not work for others. SuperFat is a great addition to any diet as it’s made with high-quality, all-natural, functional ingredients, without any added sugar or fillers.
Which nuts are best to eat?
Each nut has a unique profile of nutrients providing an array of health benefits. Almonds and macadamia nuts are high fiber nuts which can increase fullness. Brazil nuts are incredibly high in selenium, a mineral linked to immune health and inflammation control. Pecans are low in carbs making them suitable for low carb and ketogenic diets. Walnuts are rich in omega-3s, anti-inflammatory fats. The list goes on! To find out which nuts are best for you, consider your current diet, diseases you are managing and what nutrients you need to increase. Learn more here.
Is your packaging recyclable?
Unfortunately, our pouches are not yet recyclable due to the dual layers of packaging that act as an extra barrier to help maintain freshness. Separately, both layers are recyclable however together they become non-recyclable. We do hope to make all of our packaging recyclable in the future! Stay tuned… here.
Does eating nuts or nut butter cause weight gain?
Despite nuts being a high calorie food, research has shown over and over again that daily intake of almonds, walnuts, pistachios and nuts in general promotes weight loss and improves other markers of health. Scientists attribute nuts’ weight loss or weight neutral effect to their strong ability to increase fullness thanks to their fiber, fat, and protein levels. Research also shows subjects have better compliance when following weight loss diets that include nuts compared to those that exclude them.
What are MCTs and are they good for me?
MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides also known as medium-chain fatty acids, a type of quickly and easily absorbed fat primarily found in coconut and palm. MCTs have been shown to reduce weight, body fat and food intake, improve metabolism and gut health, enhance insulin sensitivity, reduce lactic acid build up after intense exercise, improve brain function in those with Alzheimer’s disease, reduce CRP, an inflammatory marker, improve heart health and more! MCTs are most often available in oil and powder forms.
What low-calorie sweeteners are okay to use?
According to the Center for the Science in the Public Interest, a third-party consumer advocacy agency, these artificial sweeteners should be avoided due to evidence-based health concerns: aspartame, acesulfame potassium, saccharin and sucralose.
Low-calorie sweeteners with confirmed safety include stevia and erythritol. The stevia plant is hardy and can be easily grown in containers outside. The stevia sweetener is also available in grocery stores in liquid and powder form. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol primarily derived from fermented glucose. While sugar alcohols may result in diarrhea, gas and bloating due to their metabolism in the intestines and interaction with gut bacteria, erythritol remains mostly unmetabolized and is excreted through urine.
Is a high-fat diet healthy?
Yes, it can be. Many leading experts in the fields of neurology, cardiology, cancer, diabetes, and obesity advocate for reducing refined and simple carbohydrates and increasing fat, especially plant-based fats, to prevent and manage chronic disease. Ketones are produced and used by the body for energy during periods of fasting or very low carbohydrate intake through a process known as ketosis. Ketosis has been shown to benefit the brain, promote weight loss, and improve insulin sensitivity, among many other health benefits. To make a high-fat diet sustainable and healthy in the long run, focus on minimally-processed whole foods, fiber, plant fats over animal fats and include vegetables at all meals.
Is a low-carb diet sustainable?
Considering all of us are unique, only you can answer this question. Your food preferences, genetics, culture, diagnoses and other factors will determine if this approach is sustainable and healthy for you. A low-carb diet may range from as low as 20 grams of carbs to under 100 grams per day. The lower the carbohydrate intake and the longer it is followed, the more planning is required to make the approach not only sustainable but also nutritious. Some foods rich in carbohydrates provide high amounts of fiber, B vitamins, magnesium and other vitamins and minerals. Care must be taken with a low-carb diet to obtain adequate amounts of these and other nutrients through ample intake of low carb plant foods to manage digestive health and control inflammation.
A meta-analysis of low-carb diets over a 25-year period found that low-carbohydrate diets that included more plant proteins and fats (nuts, seeds, avocado, beans, chocolate) rather than animal proteins and fats (beef, pork, lamb, chicken and cheese) were associated with a lower mortality rate. You can’t underestimate the power of plants, especially with a low-carb diet!
If I follow a ketogenic diet, can I eat unlimited calories and still lose weight?
While there is some debate on this question, many leading health experts still advise consuming less than your body’s calorie needs for weight loss regardless of the diet you are following. Plant-based and ketogenic diets may offer the added benefit of increased metabolism compared to reduced-calorie diets. A higher metabolism allows for a higher calorie intake without weight gain or at least less risk of weight gain. However, every human body has the ability to store calories for the purpose of survival. The calorie threshold when weight gain occurs varies widely from individual to individual based on many factors but, as a general rule of thumb, aim to reduce total calories by 10 to 20 percent daily to achieve and maintain weight loss.
