The Truth About Fat Burning Foods

by Sara Banta | May 14, 2024 | AHP News, Weight Loss

In a time where over 41.9% of American’s are overweight or obese, there is a hunt to find tricks for losing weight, including which foods will help burn fat.

The rates of obesity have increased exponentially over the last 40 years. Considering people probably haven’t changed their level of willpower to eat healthy and exercise over the years, what is causing this obesity epidemic? It might not be just the calories they are putting in their mouths.

What is a Calorie?

what is a calorie_sara banta health

A calorie is defined as the unit of energy needed to raise the temperature of water by one degree celsius. Fat contains more energy, at 9 calories per gram, than glucose or protein, which contain 4 calories per gram. This would lead one to believe that if you control the amount of calories consumed you could lose weight or gain weight easily.

However, this theory doesn’t take into consideration the types of fat, carbs, and protein in the modern day, in addition to other factors that cause the body to release or hold onto excess fat.

Mitochondrial Health and Fat Burning

Metabolism and fat burning are dependent on mitochondrial health and the ability to produce optimal amounts of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) per mitochondria. This is where cellular energy transfers into energy you can feel. Without energy at the cellular level, fat burning won’t be optimized, regardless of how much exercise you do or how many calories you eat.

The goal is to optimize mitochondrial health and increase ATP to burn fat.
At the cellular level, mitochondria, the energy powerhouses of cells, can operate in two distinct states: coupled and uncoupled. Coupled mitochondria primarily burn fat to generate ATP, the body’s true cellular energy source.

In contrast, uncoupled mitochondria burn excess fat, generating additional heat in the process. This surplus heat boosts the thermic effect and caloric burn within the body. By increasing the number of ATP molecules produced, not only does caloric burn, fat burning, and metabolism intensify, but natural energy levels also experience a notable surge.

Fat Burning and Fat Storing Foods

Let’s look at how each type of food can burn or store fat.

PROTEIN

protein foods for fat burning

Protein is essential for a healthy metabolism for many reasons. It provides the building blocks for muscles, tissues, organs, hair, nails– everything in the body. It also can help burn fat by increasing caloric burn through the “thermic effect” where different types of calories consumed can create heat in the body and burn more or less calories depending on that heat.

Protein has a higher thermic effect than any other macronutrient, as the body uses 25 percent of the protein calories just through this heat generating effect. This means that for every 100 calories consumed of protein, 25 calories are used up through digestion and heat. Also, protein provides the amino acid building blocks for growing and maintaining lean strong muscle; muscle contains dense amounts of mitochondria and ATP, and can boost fat burning merely through its existence. Saying that, not all proteins are fat burning.

Fat STORING Proteins ❌

Protein Powders: Most protein powders undergo an 80% conversion into sugars, potentially leading to both fat and muscle gain. While the common belief is that 1 gram of protein equals 4 calories, this is a generalization, as different protein sources vary in their calorie content, depending on how much protein is used for building new protein versus being converted to sugar. Unlike animal protein, which has a “thermic” effect, where 25% of protein calories are used for digestion, protein powders lack this effect due to their easy digestibility.

BCAAs (Branched-Chain Amino Acids): While BCAAs are only 3 of the essential amino acids, the body requires all 20 amino acids to produce protein. Therefore, BCAAs are primarily converted into sugar, failing to effectively build muscle and potentially encouraging fat storage.

Whey, Pea, and Soy Protein: These protein sources only utilize about 18% of their essential amino acids for making new protein, with the remaining 82% converted to sugar. Additionally, they may cause inflammation, increased estrogen levels, leaky gut, high histamine reactions, or allergies, depending on the specific powder consumed. Soy is particularly concerning due to its estrogenic properties and GMO content, which can lead to estrogen dominance and toxicity. Whey, derived from dairy, may trigger inflammation and leaky gut in some individuals, while pea protein is prone to mold and may induce allergies and inflammation.

Chicken, Conventional Beef, Turkey, and Pork: These meats contain high levels of omega-6 inflammatory fats, including the dangerous linoleic acid, and amyloid proteins, which are associated with various diseases and autoimmunity. Linoleic acid is highly unstable in the body and produces oxidative stress; as a result, the body will store more fat, lower overall ATP, and induce a cascade of detrimental effects to the body.

Amyloids are misfolded protein structures typically produced in the bone marrow. Not only do they not get broken down into usable amino acids for building lean tissue, but they can also accumulate in tissues, or organs like the brain. Consumption of these animal products, from animals raised in crowded conditions, can contribute to amyloid buildup in their tissues. Amyloids can feed pathogens and reactivate viruses in the body, leading to gut issues, pathogen proliferation, fat gain, inflammation, and autoimmunity.

Farm-Raised Fish: Most farmed fish are fed genetically modified corn and soy, which are not only unnatural, but are also full of the inflammatory omega-6 fats and linoleic acid that increase fat storage and derail mitochondrial health.

Fat BURNING Proteins 🔥

PerfectAminos: PerfectAminos consists of pure essential amino acids in the precise ratio required for building new proteins. Due to this, it achieves a remarkable 99% utilization rate by the body. Each serving of PerfectAminos is equivalent to 30 grams of whey protein but contains only 2 calories, compared to the 120 calories found in a serving of whey protein. PerfectAminos helps increase muscle mass without simultaneously gaining water or fat weight, allowing for a process known as lean bulking.

Wild Animal Proteins: While wild animal proteins may offer only 32% of usable amino acids, they provide essential B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium, and other nutrients crucial for protein synthesis and overall health. Moreover, the digestion of wild animal proteins triggers a “thermic” effect, during which the body burns 25% of the calories consumed. Additionally, the balanced ratios of amino acids and omega-3 fatty acids in wild animal proteins stimulate the release of a hormone called CCK, which helps curb sugar cravings and suppress the appetite. These meats include bison, elk, deer, lamb, cornish game hen, and wild cold water fish.

FATS

High fat ketogenic diets have been very popular over the last decade, and some people have been successful in burning fat with them, due to limiting their carb intake. However, long term, this approach may backfire as the metabolism slows down and thyroid hormones are suppressed. To make matters worse, the bombardment of toxins, radiation, and spike protein overburden the liver, to the point that it can’t metabolize fat very efficiently. Assuming the liver can metabolize fat efficiently, there are healthy fats, and fats that will lead to fat gain.

Fat STORING Fats ❌

bad fats that store fat

PUFAs, or polyunsaturated fats, are prevalent in processed foods, imitation butter, salad dressings, fried foods, poultry, pork, nuts, seeds, seed oils, and fatty fish. They encompass all of the seed oils including safflower, grapeseed, sunflower, corn, cottonseed, soybean, rice bran peanut, and canola oil. The primary offender within this group is linoleic acid (LA). These fats contribute to a range of health issues, including a compromised metabolism, impaired mitochondrial function, fat gain, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, insulin resistance, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease.

PUFAs stand out due to the multiple double bonds in their carbon chains, a feature distinct from saturated fats. These fats hinder energy production, significantly elevate energy requirements, and diminish the effectiveness of energy utilization. Structurally fragile, they can convert into harmful inflammatory compounds and are highly vulnerable to damage. Consumption of these oils can result in mitochondrial dysfunction, particularly impacting the electron transport chain, crucial for ATP and energy production. Additionally, they inhibit fatty acid beta-oxidation, reducing the body’s ability to efficiently utilize fat for fuel, thereby prioritizing carbohydrate utilization. Consequently, the body becomes less adept at utilizing fat for energy, leading to increased fat cell size. These fats can remain in the body for years, continuing to wreak havoc on the metabolism.

Linoleic acid is also found in some foods touted to be healthy, including chicken, pork, seeds, and nuts. Some ruminant animals such as bison, cows, lamb, deer, elk, and other wild animals, have multiple stomachs, with bacteria that convert high linoleic acid fat into healthy saturated and monounsaturated fat, which is easier for the body to metabolize and burn.  

On the other hand, chicken, pork, and other animals with single stomachs are typically fed corn and soy, which are high in LA, which, in turn, makes their meat high in LA, as they don’t process it like the ruminant animals with multiple stomachs. So, regardless of how lean these meats are, they are full of linoleic acid and could be causing fat gain.

Fat BURNING Fats 🔥

good fats for fat burning

It is true that if you are in a ketogenic state, your body will tend to burn body fat for energy. The healthy fats to focus on are butter, ghee, organic cold pressed olive oil, and possibly avocado oil. Unfortunately, over 60 percent of olive oil and avocado oil on the market are cut with cheap seed oils and can backfire on your fat burning goals.

CARBOHYDRATES

Carbohydrates have been demonized over the last two decades with the focus on keto and carnivore based diets. It is true that too many of the wrong carbs can lead to inflammation, leaky gut, endotoxins, fat accumulation and lowered mitochondrial health. However, consuming the right source of carbs can increase fat burning, lower stress hormones, and support optimal energy.

Fat STORING Carbs ❌

Any carbs included in processed foods have been adulterated, refined, and loaded with GMOs and glyphosate in addition to being paired with seed oils; as a result they will cause leaky gut and malabsorption, drastically altering the gut microbiome

This occurs due to the presence of metabolic toxins, which lead to a decline in cellular energy production within the mitochondria, and, consequently, carbon dioxide production in the intestine diminishes. With a relatively lower concentration of carbon dioxide in the large intestine, the environment becomes conducive to the proliferation of pathogenic bacteria known as facultative anaerobes. These particular bacteria possess significant amounts of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) embedded in their cell membranes. When provided with complex carbohydrates as food, they thrive and multiply, eventually reaching their demise.

Upon death, these bacteria release LPS, also referred to as endotoxin, into the system. This endotoxin serves as another potent metabolic poison, further compromising the mitochondria’s ability to generate cellular energy. Thus, a detrimental cycle is established and fat gain results. This scenario creates a paradoxical situation where seemingly healthy foods, like complex carbohydrates, can exacerbate health issues. By increasing the concentration of endotoxin in the body, these foods contribute to adverse health outcomes. 

However, when gut health is restored and mitochondrial health is optimized, these same complex carbohydrates can become healthy. The problem is most people don’t have an optimized gut, and suffer from weight gain from these foods.

Fat BURNING Carbs 🔥

Carbohydrates from cooked organic vegetables that don’t contain sulfur, oxalates, histamines, or mold, can help provide sufficient fiber to support a healthy gut microbiome, without disrupting the detoxification pathways associated with the aforementioned substances. Furthermore, organic fruits can provide simple carbs that don’t encourage endotoxin growth while still providing sufficient carbohydrates for energy. Initially, as laid out below, eating a lower carb diet may be beneficial to allow the gut to heal through supplements and some intermittent fasting, slowly increasing the carb intake as the metabolism improves.

Other Factors Causing Fat Gain

fat gain and stress

Apart from food, the following issues may contribute to low ATP, depressed mitochondrial health, and reduced fat burning.

Iodine Deficiency

Iodine deficiency stands as the primary culprit behind mitochondrial failure. In its absence, mitochondria produce a mere 2 ATP, whereas with adequate iodine levels, production increases to 36 ATP.  ATP represents genuine cellular energy, crucial for maintaining a healthy metabolism. Internally, iodine plays a pivotal role in enhancing energy and metabolism within cells, while externally, iodine provides various beneficial effects, including:

    • Diminishing inflammation and histamine levels
    • Neutralizing viruses, bacteria, and other foreign pathogens
    • Supporting liver cleansing processes
    • Balancing hormonal levels
    • Detoxifying all 100 trillion cells in the body from harmful substances like fluoride, bromide, chlorine, lead, mercury, xeno-estrogens, and radiation
    • Easing symptoms associated with spike protein
    • Regulating blood sugar levels

Xenoestrogens

Xenoestrogens, present in our food, water, and surroundings, imitate estrogen within the body. They include, but are not limited to, herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, plastics, parabens, and other compounds. These substances not only contribute to mitochondrial deterioration but also disrupt the body’s hormonal equilibrium, resulting in diseases, decreased energy, and weight gain. To shield organs from these toxins, the body stores them in enlarged fat cells, further exacerbating weight gain.

Radiation

Exposure to radiation from both non-ionizing and ionizing sources has been linked to various adverse effects on health, including:

    • Elevated insulin resistance
    • Increased oxidative stress
    • Damage to DNA
    • Compromised function of the nervous, endocrine, and hormonal systems
    • Digestive issues
    • Decreased metabolic rate
    • Enhanced fat storage
    • Reduced ATP production and overall energy levels

Stress

In today’s fast-paced world, individuals are grappling with elevated levels of chronic stress, which can significantly impact metabolism in various ways:

      • Stress-Induced Leaky Gut: Stress triggers the onset of leaky gut syndrome, leading to the proliferation of endotoxins. This condition disrupts nutrient absorption crucial for supporting a healthy metabolism and interferes with the production of neurotransmitters essential for stress management.
      • Conversion of T4 to Reverse T3: Stress triggers the conversion of the inactive thyroid hormone T4 into reverse T3, resulting in a slowdown of metabolism and the promotion of fat storage.
      • Accumulation of Visceral Fat: Chronic stress prompts the continuous release of cortisol, a stress hormone, which can contribute to the accumulation of fat around the abdominal area, known as visceral fat.
      • Increased Insulin Resistance: Stress exacerbates insulin resistance independently of dietary sugar intake, leading to dysregulated blood sugar levels and promoting fat storage within the body.

Dirty Liver

The liver, often referred to as the body’s chief detoxification hub, plays a critical role in synthesizing the estrogen binding protein (EBP). However, when the liver’s function is compromised due to toxin overload or suboptimal performance, this essential task becomes challenging. When the liver fails to effectively eliminate toxins, vital functions, such as converting the inactive thyroid hormone T4 into the active metabolic hormone T3, as well as fat and protein metabolism, are impaired. This disruption can contribute to weight gain.

Moreover, the liver is responsible for orchestrating phase 1, 2, and 3 estrogen detoxification processes. When the liver’s capacity is hindered, it struggles to clear excess estrogens from the body, leading to further weight gain and hormonal imbalance.

Endotoxins in the Gut

The presence of toxins in processed foods, linoleic acid, excess estrogens, and other harmful substances severely disrupts and compromises the gut. These metabolic toxins cause a decline in cellular energy production within the mitochondria, resulting in reduced carbon dioxide production in the intestines.

The lower carbon dioxide level in the large intestine creates an environment conducive to the proliferation of pathogenic bacteria known as facultative anaerobes.

These bacteria harbor significant amounts of lipopolysaccharides (LPS) in their cell membranes. Upon their demise, these bacteria release LPS, also known as endotoxin, further exacerbating metabolic issues and significantly impairing mitochondrial energy production. In compromised gut conditions like this, complex carbohydrates exacerbate the problem and worsen the situation.

Once the metabolic issues are addressed by eliminating toxins, the mitochondria regain their ability to produce sufficient energy, and the balance of healthy bacteria in the gut is restored. In such cases, complex carbohydrates can become beneficial for gut health.

Spike Protein

The dysregulation of the ACE2 enzyme receptor in the liver, triggered by spike protein, induces an accumulation of angiotensin 2, which manifests in various potential effects including:

      • Water retention
      • Insulin dysregulation and unexplained weight gain
      • Increase in antidiuretic hormone levels
      • Oxidative stress
      • Inflammation
      • Hormonal imbalance, possibly resulting in weight gain
      • Leaky gut
      • Increased histamine intolerance
      • Increased oxalate production
      • Increased amyloid production

The presence of spike protein exacerbates these effects by compromising detox pathways, amplifying the severity of each issue and consequently leading to a further decrease in metabolism.

Copper Deficiency

The surge in processed food consumption, compounded by the presence of spike protein, has expedited the depletion of copper within the body. Copper holds a critical role in managing uric acid levels, insulin resistance, and weight regulation, and serves as a vital factor in thwarting insulin resistance and weight gain through several mechanisms:

      • Blocking the Polyol Pathway: Copper acts as an inhibitor of the polyol pathway, a metabolic process responsible for converting glucose into sorbitol and fructose. When copper levels are inadequate, uric acid levels escalate, exacerbating insulin resistance and contributing to unexplained weight gain.
      • Regulating Triglycerides and Liver Fat: Copper aids in maintaining optimal levels of triglycerides and prevents the accumulation of fat within the liver. Excessive fat buildup in the liver is a significant contributor to insulin resistance.
      • Managing Iron Levels: Copper plays a crucial role in regulating iron levels within the bloodstream, addressing the fundamental cause of oxidative stress. By mitigating oxidative stress, copper helps reduce uric acid levels, thereby lowering the risk of insulin resistance development.

Here’s a breakdown of the critical role copper plays in metabolism and fat loss:

 

      • Enzymatic Reactions: Copper acts as a cofactor for numerous enzymes involved in thyroid hormone synthesis and metabolism. These enzymes are instrumental in converting thyroxine (T4) into triiodothyronine (T3), the active form of thyroid hormone. By facilitating these enzymatic reactions, copper supports optimal thyroid function.
      • Thyroid Hormone Binding: Copper has the capacity to bind to thyroid hormones, notably thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG), a protein crucial for transporting thyroid hormones in the bloodstream. Variations in copper levels can influence the binding and transport of thyroid hormones, potentially impacting thyroid function and fat metabolism.
      • Oxidative Stress: Copper plays a pivotal role in antioxidant defense mechanisms, neutralizing free radicals and mitigating oxidative damage. Oxidative stress, which has been associated with thyroid dysfunction, may be eased by copper’s involvement in antioxidant processes, thereby contributing to maintaining thyroid health and fat loss.
      • Alleviation of Anemia: Anemia, stemming from copper deficiency, adversely affects ATP and metabolism through various mechanisms:
      • Reduced Oxygen Delivery: Anemia diminishes the blood’s capacity to transport oxygen, resulting in tissue hypoxia (oxygen deprivation). Consequently, cells may resort to anaerobic metabolism, which yields ATP less efficiently compared to aerobic metabolism.
      • Mitochondrial Dysfunction: Anemia-induced oxygen deprivation can impair mitochondrial function, thereby compromising ATP production efficiency, which will in turn inhibit fat loss.
      • Disrupted Metabolic Pathways: Anemia may disrupt metabolic pathways essential for ATP production. For instance, oxidative stress linked to anemia could affect the pentose phosphate pathway, which generates reducing equivalents crucial for ATP synthesis.
      • Heightened Energy Demand: In response to tissue hypoxia caused by anemia, the body may escalate metabolic rates and energy demands, placing additional strain on ATP production pathways.

Prioritize Eating Wild Animal Protein

Below is a structured approach to incorporate fat burning foods into your diet. Throughout each step, prioritizing wild animal protein is essential for several reasons:

      • Rich Nutrient Profile: Wild animal protein offers the highest nutrient density, especially in today’s world, where soil depletion is prevalent.
      • Muscle Support: It encourages lean muscle growth, crucial for a robust metabolism as muscle tissue harbors more mitochondria and ATP, essential for energy production and fat burning.
      • Blood Sugar Stability: Consumption of wild animal protein aids in stabilizing blood sugar levels and enhancing insulin sensitivity.
      • Consistent Energy: When paired with the right amount of carbohydrates, it provides sustained and stable energy levels.
      • Detoxification Support: Free from sulfur, oxalates, lectins, or histamines, wild animal protein promotes optimal detoxification pathways and supports metabolism.
      • Metabolic Boost: Wild animal protein boosts the thermic effect, prompting the body to ramp up metabolism to metabolize protein effectively. Additionally, it burns up to 25% of the calories just for digestion.
      • Appetite Regulation: It helps regulate a healthy appetite and reduces cravings for unhealthy sugars and processed foods.

Avoid Sulfur-Rich Vegetables

Steer clear of sulfur-containing vegetables as they can overload the body’s sulfur detoxification pathways, exacerbate histamine responses, and slow down metabolism and fat burning. Examples include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, onions, garlic, and egg yolks. Be cautious of hidden sulfur in medications and supplements.

Steer Clear of Amyloid Proteins

Cut out foods containing amyloid proteins, such as chicken, pork, turkey, and conventionally raised beef. Amyloids can contribute to endotoxins (which are correlated to fat gain), histamine intolerance, oxalate formation, and promote the growth of spike protein, leading to increased inflammation, gut issues, pathogenic load, and insulin dysregulation.

Eliminate Oxalate-Rich Foods

Remove foods high in oxalates from your diet, including spinach, almonds, berries, kale, and most nuts. Oxalates are known to slow down thyroid function, metabolism and fat burning. Reducing the oxalate burden on the system can also help to alleviate histamine responses and enhance sulfur detoxification.

Reduce Histamine-Rich Foods

By excluding the aforementioned foods, the histamine burden on the body diminishes, allowing the digestive system to heal and promote insulin regulation. This approach helps alleviate symptoms associated with histamine intolerance and sulfur accumulation in the body.

Limit Fat Intake

It’s crucial to minimize polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in your diet, as they can impair metabolism, disrupt gut health, increase endotoxins, and hinder progress. These fats can stay in the body for years, so the damage is long lasting. Additionally, aim to keep overall fat intake below 30%, as consuming excess fat can prompt the body to store carbohydrates as fat.

How to Gradually Reintroduce the Right Carbs For Fat Burning

Step One:

Consider adopting a lower-carb diet, incorporating foods outlined in the Accelerated Food Guide for one to three months, depending on the severity of metabolic issues. Utilizing supplements like Acceleradine® iodine, Accelerated Thyroid®, Accelerated Keto®, Accelerated Ancient Salt®, Accelerated Scalar Copper®, alongside the Accelerated Food Guide can enhance ATP and mitochondrial health, reduce inflammation, and balance gut flora. Adding gut healing supplements into your diet should also be considered. The objective is to repair metabolism through supplements and diet, before reintroducing appropriate carbohydrate sources.

Step Two:

Incorporate Sara Banta’s Liver Flush Detox Cleanse to optimize fat and protein metabolism, enhance thyroid hormone conversion, and facilitate detoxification of toxins contributing to insulin resistance and weight gain.

Step Three:

Once metabolism is stabilized, gradually reintroduce suitable carbohydrates. Ensure fat intake remains below 30-35%; excessive fat consumption can divert glucose into glycolysis, reducing ATP production and increasing fat storage. Introducing carbohydrates outlined in the Accelerated Food Guide slowly allows for enzyme upregulation, enhancing carbohydrate utilization and energy conversion. Begin with easily digestible options like fruits to avoid intestinal distress or endotoxin production. If gut health is compromised with microbial overgrowth, avoid complex carbohydrates or fermentable foods as they can exacerbate endotoxin production.
