Food-Switch Plan To Build Muscles, Not Belly Fat
Research shows, however, that we can break this vicious cycle by changing which fats we ingest. While the body stores saturated fats and carbohydrates as visceral fat, it uses unsaturated fats containing necessary amino acids and essential fatty acids to boost muscle recovery and build new muscle tissue. New research also shows that fat intake of healthy fats such as those found in avocados, nuts and seeds, olive oil, beans, yogurt, and chickpeas may actually help you stay lean when gaining muscle.
It sounds too simple to be true, but now that you know what your body does with the saturated fats you ingest, it makes sense that a simple swap could work wonders. Exchanging those unhealthy saturated fats for healthy unsaturated fats gives your body what it needs to burn off the stored fat, lose weight, and build that lean muscle that gives us the healthy physique we have all been looking for.
