What Is The Healthy Amount Of Fat To Consume To Lose Fat

Too many people have the thinking that all fats are bad. And if you want to burn fat then you should avoid fats all together. There are some good fats and there are some bad fats. If you consume the wrong fats then you increase your blood cholesterol, clog your arteries, increase fat storage and wreak total havoc in your body. But if you consume good fats then you will increase your energy, increase fat burning, increase muscle-building hormones, increase your strength, improve insulin function, improve your skin texture and strengthen your joints. So how much good fats is necessary to consume?

Eating small quantities of good fats is essential for fat loss and if you avoid fats all together than losing fat will be less effective. There are 9 calories in a gram of fat. If your dietary fat is reduced to below 10% of your daily calories then this can trigger the starvation alarm. Fat slows down the the release of carbohydrates into the bloodstream. Which means that without good fats your blood sugar spikes rapidly. when your blood sugar spikes your body releases more insulin and too much insulin cause fat storage. Little to no fat diet should be avoided.

The weight loss and diet industry is very diverse and there are zero fat diets but also very high fat diets. They insist that a very high fat diet (40-70% of your calories) is the ultimate method of losing fat. There are a lot of people who are willing to try this kind of a method, just because it sounds so radically different.

Although you can stay healthy consuming about 60% of fat. Eskimos eat a lot of fat, but the fat they have is from from fish, whale blubber and other unprocessed fats. The foods we have in our modern culture is full of processed fatty meats, hydrogenated oils, baked goods, fried foods, supermarket oils and other highly processed fats. And as I said before 1 gram of fat is 9 calories. If you eat only 100 grams of fat, even if it is good fats, then that would be 900 calories. But to lose fat you need a calorie deficit. High fat diets not effective as well.

So the healthy amount of fat should be somewhere in the middle of very low fat and high fat. Many experts and bodybuilders agree that should limit your total daily fat intake to about 20% of your daily calories and not less than 15% of total daily calories. That is good fats not bad fats.

Ginkgo Biloba Extract: What Are The Health Benefits?

Before you buy a ginkgo biloba herbal remedy, why not take a moment to learn a little more about ginkgo biloba uses. You may be hoping for improved memory or a reduction of vertigo, but there are other ginkgo biloba uses, as well.

Ginkgo History-Briefly
The Ginkgo tree is considered a living fossil. While other plants have diverged and formed various species over time, this one has remained almost identical to its ancestors that were present during the Pliocene period of the planet, which occurred over a million years ago. There are some specimens, living today, that are believed to be over 1000 years old. They were the only plants to survive the bombing of Hiroshima in Japan. The trees were charred, but survived the bombing and soon returned to good health.

The ginkgo biloba herbal remedy is extracted from the leaves of the tree. It has been used for many years. The leaves have pharmaceutical activity and are generally taken in dosages ranging from 40-200mg per day.

Ginkgo Biloba Uses

Scientific studies have supported the ginkgo biloba uses for the health of the brain and other bodily organs, by showing that it increases the oxygen content of cells and tissues. It has been shown to increase mental clarity and concentration, as well as increasing alertness and short term memory retention. It is for this reason that it has been suggested for preventing Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases, although there are other plant extracts, such as curcumin, that are believed to have even more benefit in this area.


Other ginkgo biloba uses are to protect the health of the heart. It may, however, interact with certain heart medications. If you are currently taking a prescription medication, check with your doctor before you take this supplement.

Ears, Vertigo...

A ginkgo biloba herbal remedy may be beneficial for reducing vertigo, dizziness or tinnitus, which is ringing in the ears. Again, it will work best for these purposes, if it is combined with curcumin and ginger extracts. This combination is also known to reduce stress and anxiety. There are not really many “stand-alone” extracts. There are lots of beneficial ones and they work well together, as long as the supplement is well designed.

Hearing, Strokes...

One of the ginkgo biloba uses includes the prevention of hearing loss, as it supports blood flow to the ears. It may help prevent strokes and protect the arterial walls from cholesterol build up that can lead to blockages. It has antioxidant activity and boosts ATP levels (another important nutrient).

In traditional medicine, the ginkgo biloba herbal remedy was recognized as an aphrodisiac. It is now recommended for impotence and ED. By increasing blood flow, this is one of the ginkgo biloba uses that are very likely to be beneficial.

If you have any kind of health problem or just don’t have as much energy as you would like to, increasing your intake of trace nutrients and extracts that are commonly missing from the diet can help. A ginkgo biloba herbal remedy is one of the ingredients that your supplement should contain.
