That right you heard me correctly, carbs and fats that make you thin.  I want to help break the myth that carbohydrates and fats are the devil when it comes to losing weight.  This couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, my clients diets are 50% carbohydrates 20% fats. They are essential for energy as well as satiety.  Now with that said, there are good and bad carbs and fats.   So I have compiled a list of healthy carbohydrates and fats that make the grade.  When you go through these lists notice the main connection between all of these items, they are in their natural form coming from the earth, without preservatives and additives.  If it comes out of a box than it’s probably not gonna help you lose weight.
