The Fat Greasy Enemy is back

Uh-oh, the pharmaceutical has brought back their greasy enemy of fat, Alli. Now Alli is not what you might expect. You might be thinking "he" is a big, fat, greasy underground mobster, but he's not. Instead, he's a diet drug that makes you poop your pants.
I'm serious!
Alli is also known as Orlistat. Common side effects include, "inability to control bowel movements; oily discharge; oily or fatty stools; oily spotting". Ugh. And here's an FDA warning on Orlistat, "Contact your healthcare professional if you develop itching, yellow eyes or skin, dark urine, loss of appetite, or light-colored stools. These may be signs of liver injury."
NO Thanks!
This the WRONG approach to weight loss. Orlistat makes fat the demon, but fat is good for fat loss. When you eat the right fats (from the 7 foods listed below), you'll boost your all-natural fat burning hormones and calorie burning potential. Fats also keep you full longer. Just eating some avocado cuts your calorie intake by 20-40% at your next meal. You need fats to be healthy and to lose fat. That's a fact.
"When you understand how to choose the right fats, replacing high-carb items in your diet such as bread, bagels, muffins, baked goods, and pasta with fat-burning, healthy, fatty foods, you'll be well on your way to a flatter belly," says nutritionist Joel Marion.
Here's Joel's top 7 fatty foods for fat loss:
Whole Eggs, Nuts (such as almonds, pecans, walnuts, and cashews), Seeds (such as sunflower seeds and flaxseeds), Avocado, Olive Oil, Fatty Fish (for example, mackerel, tuna, salmon, and trout), and Coconut Oil.
I'm down at Joel's house in Florida this week (escaping the Cold of Canadia), and this morning I had my unique breakfast bowl of: Walnuts, Coconut Oil, Pecan Butter, Cacao Nibs, and a banana. It was delicious, kept me full for 6 hours, and gave me all day energy.
Coconut oil is a prime source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), well known for their appetite regulation, energy, and immune benefits.
But there's one fat not on the list that is Joel's #1 fat for a flat belly, which stands head and shoulders above all of the previously mentioned fats in its ability to slim your waist and burn belly fat. My mom just started using this and said it helps her stay full between meals (while she's busy burning calories dogsitting ol' Bally the Dog).
Take Joel's advice and get this #1 belly-fat-burning fat daily
And just say no to drugs and oily underwear,

PS - Ask the big question...
..."What do you really want to achieve in life?"
Then think, "Are the people I'm spending time with helping me achieve this?"
... "The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best," said Epictetus
... So become the person you need to be to achieve what you want to achieve. Most people want you to remain in your/their comfort zone. They resist and hate change. They believe they are stuck and want you to remain stuck with them. You must not harbor any bitterness or resentment against those that try to hold you back. They know not what they do.
Stay strong and never give up on what is important to you...even if that means a big step out of your comfort zone. Stay strong and keep on pushing on
