The Truth Behind Slim Arms And Trans Fats

By Katherine Crawford M.S.

Your body needs healthy dietary fat to function properly. However, were you aware that one type of fat is hidden in many foods and causes a high amount of deaths every year? This killer is called trans fat.

Not too long ago some chemists discovered a way to extend the freshness of cooking oils. Their novel method was called hydrogenation. If only they knew what would come in the years to follow with their trans fatty acids

Because unfortunately, this new Franken fat would be responsible for the greatest amount of deaths of any nutrient in U.S. history.

The bottom line is that trans fatty acids alter your metabolic process so much that obtaining slim arms becomes a pipe dream. It really doesn't matter how hard you train, except if you're an Olympic athlete.

And here are 4 more reasons to stay away from these Franken fats:

1. They are responsible for tens of thousands of deaths every year. How many? According to the most conservative estimates from Harvard University, about 30,000. Think about that for a minute. A single nutrient is responsible for tens of thousands of deaths every single year. Mind boggling.

2. No amount of consumption is ok. Food industry buffs say it's ok to have a little in your diet. But the brightest minds from Harvard and Stanford say that no level of intake is safe. I think you should listen to the academics

3. They increase triglyceride levels. Triglycerides are the storage form of arm fat within your body. Do you think increasing their level will help you get thin and slim arms? Absolutely not!

4. They raise the worst type of cholesterol. What's the worst type? Dense LDL particles. In other words, they clog up your arteries which is not good for your heart and they reduce circulation which is not good for getting thin arms.

I believe that it has become very popular to use scare tactics for commercial purposes. We live in a society of fear which promotes feverish consumer spending. I do not want to scare you with this article. I simply want you to be informed! After all, in this day and age it's virtually impossible to eliminate every single toxin from your diet. Nevertheless, staying away from trans fat will really boost your slim arms mission.
