Weight loss is often tied to low carb diets, calorie restriction, or a vast array of diet plans from Atkins to South Beach to the Zone. But only The Silver Cloud Diet points to cutting edge science regarding the use of organic foods and all natural organic saturated fats to increase weight loss, satiety, and health.
Surprised? You thought this top ten list was going to be vegetables and fruits? Organic protein selections are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones, or genetically modified grains. Pasture raised animals require no antibiotics. Their health is optimum and they pass these benefits on to the people who choose them.
A diet rich in natural, organic saturated fats will help you lose weight, improve your blood pressure, lower your cholesterol and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
How is this possible? “Saturated fats are satisfying,”according to Dr. John Salerno, internationally acclaimed internist and diet doctor, “so you eat less. Your calorie consumption will go down quite naturally while your satisfaction goes up. This natural calorie restriction not only helps you lose weight but live longer and healthier”.
And at a deep, cellular level, according to Mary Enig, PhD of The Weston A Price Foundation, who has studied dietary fats forty years or more, “the diet should contain a minimum of 25% saturated fats.” Enig says, in her article, “The Importance of Fats for Biological Function”, that only saturated fats can protect the body from the ravages of age and from the incursion of tumors, commonly called cancer.
“Many people recognize that saturated fats are needed for energy, hormone production, cellular membranes and for organ padding. You may be surprised to learn that certain saturated fatty acids are also needed for important signaling and stabilization processes in the body” says Enig.
Dr. John Salerno, New York internist explains. “Saturated fats in the diet, although long considered by mainstream medicine and the press, to be unhealthy, actually have the complete opposite effect. In my patients, I see better weight loss and weight control management among patients who include saturated fats in their diet. And a healthy body is a young body.”
Dr. Salerno begins his weight loss patients on a program he calls “The Full Fat Fast”, which is a two week regimen that precludes carbohydrates, and focuses on organic protein and saturated fats. “I tell my patients to choose organic foods, including dairy, meats, fish, and oils. This will rest the body from the ravages of the Western Diet, and jump start their diet.”
“Organic foods aren’t just fruits and vegetables. The Western diet has become so degraded with the onslaught of industrial farming, my patients and I have learned that only an organic diet will help them achieve their weight loss goals as well as improve their health and chances for a long and healthy life.”
