The Standard American Diet (SAD) is predominately made up of carbohydrates and devoid or healthy fats, nourishing proteins and disease fighting non starchy veggies. A diet high in carbohydrates (like the SAD) causes our body to become efficient at burning carbohydrates for fuel but unfortunately inefficient at burning FAT for fuel. A diet higher in fat and lower in carbohydrates can actually cause the body to become more efficient at burning fat. Though it sounds counterintuitive; increasing fat intake can actually help you lose fat.
