Hi, it's Shawn Wells, Director of Research and Development here at BioTrust, and if you lived through the 70s, 80s, and 90s like me, then you probably remember being told over and over again that eating fat will make you fat.
I remember watching commercials touting our favorite fatty foods, like bacon, butter, and steaks, were responsible for unsightly belly fat and heart disease.
Instead, we were told to eat every fat-free food we could find. Cookies, pancakes, candy bars, cakes, yogurts, and microwave dinners cluttered aisle after grocery store aisle in the hopes of convincing the masses that fat-free was the path to health and longevity.1
Well, today you’re going to discover why this was all based on misinformation and why nothing could be further from the truth.
After all, the numbers speak for themselves. Obesity rates have nearly tripled, from 12% in 1960 to 35% by the year 2010.2,3
How did this happen? It all started way back in 1955, when President Eisenhower suffered a heart attack.
The next day his physician came out quoting Ancel Keys, a known nutritionist from the University of Minnesota, who said we must cut out our favorite foods like steak, eggs, and butter—and replace them with fattening breads, pastas, vegetable oils and margarine.4
His data was fudged to make "fat" the enemy, and here we are 62 years later, (and obesity rates are higher than ever) after that famous heart attack that changed America.
After years (and years) of doctors and dietitians telling us to eat “fat-free,” researchers, including esteemed Harvard scientists, definitively tell us that dietary fat does NOT make you fat. Even more, clear evidence now indicates there is a brand new category of exotic “friendly fats” that could just be the missing link to help you quickly lose body fat, curb storage, and improve your overall quality of life.
These “fat-loss friendly fats” help boost antioxidant activity, enhance immunity, support healthy heart function, and promote an optimal inflammatory response.5,6
But can these unique fats really help you lose body fat faster? We’ll take a quick look at the 5 studies below confirming the breadth of science supporting their potential flab-blasting power in the next few minutes, so be sure to keep reading...
The main fatty acid in this group is called conjugated linoleic acid, and while you probably haven’t heard of conjugated linoleic acid, it’s been around since the beginning of time. This “super fat” is actually a healthy and naturally-occurring fat found in beef and dairy products, such as full fat yogurt, milk, butter, and cheese.
Beyond that, and of prime importance to today’s conversation, conjugated linoleic acid has been linked to an array of health benefits, most noteworthy being its unique ability to help people lose unsightly body fat…
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled human study (the gold standard of research design) published in the Journal of International Medical Research, 20 participants were either given conjugated linoleic acid or an imposter (in the form of vegetable oil) daily for 12 weeks. At the end of the study period, the conjugated linoleic acid group lose significantly more body fat than the placebo group.7
In another double-blind, placebo-controlled human study conducted by renowned Swedish researcher Dr. Annika Smedman, those receiving conjugated linoleic acid again lost significantly more fat than the placebo group, over the course of 12 weeks.8
And this is really only the tip of the iceberg…
Perhaps most telling are the results from three separate systematic reviews with meta-analysis, which arguably represents the most critical assessment of research on a particular topic. In the most robust review published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers from the University of Wisconsin evaluated 18 eligible studies and confirmed that supplementation with conjugated linoleic acid leads to significant fat loss.9
In a second review published in the European Journal of Nutrition, researchers from the University of Exeter corroborated these findings, with their meta-analysis revealing a significant reduction in fat mass with conjugated linoleic acid supplementation compared to placebo.10
In addition to fat loss, a meta-analysis published in the journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism found that supplementation with CLA results in a significant increase in fat-free mass (FFM) compared to placebo. This has important implications for metabolism (more FFM means more calories burned), appearance (achieving that lean, toned look you desire), and preventing weight regain.11
Clearly, research shows conjugated linoleic acid has a unique ability to naturally increase fat loss, but there’s one big problem: the scientifically-effective amount of conjugated linoleic acid (i.e., the daily amount necessary to obtain the evidence-based benefits) is upwards of 2 grams per day, an amount that makes obtaining this level a virtual impossibility through beef and dairy products alone.
12 pounds of beef
25 pounds of cheddar cheese
5 and ½ sticks of butter
7 and ½ gallons of milk...or...
79, 8-oz containers of yogurt...
…every single day of the week.
Of course, the calories contained in such large amounts of these foods would completely cancel out the weight loss and health benefits of their conjugated linoleic acid content, not to mention the extraordinary expense and utter impracticality of consuming that volume of food, period.
But what if you could get the scientifically-effective level of 2+ grams of conjugated linoleic acid daily in the form of an easy-to-take softgel that delivers all of its amazing benefits without having to choke down pounds of beef and dairy products each and every day?
Essentially, it'd be one of the easiest, most practical and convenient ways to help you in your fight against unhealthy body fat when combined with a healthy lifestyle.
But even better, what if you could do it along with the addition of several key ingredients to increase your results beyond what conjugated linoleic acid is able to provide all by itself? Is that something you might be interested in?
There is another lesser-known fat-fighting fat called punicic acid, which comes from pomegranate seed oil. Punicic acid is referred to as “Super” conjugated linoleic acid, and some researchers have suggested that it has an effect that is more potent than the conjugated linoleic acid mentioned above. You see, the body can naturally convert punicic acid to conjugated linoleic acid, and what’s more, punicic acid has a protective effect on conjugated linoleic acid, making it the ultimate one-two-punch in the fight against body fat.
To sum it all up, by combining conjugated linoleic acid with pomegranate seed oil, you get the best of both worlds—increased levels of conjugated linoleic acid to accelerate your weight loss efforts and improved insulin sensitivity and elevated levels of the fat-burning hormone adiponectin by way of pomegranate seed oil.
Together we call this dynamic duo of fat-fighting fatty acids BellyTrim XP™, and it’s by far one of the most exciting, unique formulas we've ever had the opportunity to work on.
But what if we could make this fat-blasting combo of super fats even MORE powerful? What if we could take it from an incredible, research-backed formula to a supplement so powerful that it stands alone in a class above and beyond any supplement of its kind? Well, that’s exactly what we did by adding internationally patented BioPerine® to an already extremely effective BellyTrim XP formula.
You see, this patented black pepper extract has been shown to significantly enhance the absorption of multiple fat soluble nutrients.12 In other words, more absorption ensures you’ll get the most bang for your buck, and it’s only available together as part of our ultra-advanced BellyTrim XP™ formula.
Now, admittedly, that’s a lot of science, but the take-home point to remember is pretty simple: BellyTrim XP is scientifically designed to accelerate fat loss and work with your body’s natural biology to win the fight against fat—without any harmful stimulants.
Yep, that’s right: when combined with a healthy lifestyle, BellyTrim XP is formulated to help you lose fat faster; it really is that simple.
