Carbohydrates facilitate fat storage, so try to limit your carbohydrate intake as much as possible, if you want to lose weight. The fewer carbs you eat, the less alpha glycerol phosphate is available for fat storage. But you also must-must-must keep your calorie intake under control. You absolutely, positively, cannot freely feed on protein and fat, and expect to lose weight. Try to eat 75% of your calories from fat and 25% of your calories from protein. In the real world, this means eat the crown on a steak and give the eye to your spouse or dog. Instead of eating two 4 ounce cans of tuna in water, eat one 4 ounce can and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the tuna. Tuna packed in oil is usually in the wrong kind of oil. You want olive oil, not soy oil or corn orl or safflower oil. The type of fat you eat can make a difference in how you feel, how much you are craving carbohydrate, and how easily you lose weight..
