Eat Fat, Get Thin is the most unique and ironic diet of all time. The idea originated from health adviser Dr. Mark Hyman who thinks people should never stop eating fat.

In his book, "Get Fat: Eat Thin," heath adviser and dietician Dr. Mark Hyman clearly recommends that people should never stop eating fats. Thus, as the health adviser to Bill and Hillary Clinton, Dr. Hyman incorporate eating high-fat foods into the diet along with vegetables, Business Insider reported.

High-fat foods like olive oil and salmon are what Dr. Hyman suggests to eat instead of strict veganism. According to Center for Nutrition Studies, Dr. Hyman further claims that fat is good for the health and not bad which he specifies in his book, "Eat Fat: Eat Thin."

Dr. Hyman said that his current diet is called "a cross diet between paleo and vegan." He doesn't even eat too much dairy or meat and avoid foods that have high content sugar. "70 t 80 percent of your diet should come from plant foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and beans," Dr. Hyman said.

For snacks, Dr. Hyman suggests some packets of protein-rich and high-fat nuts. Nuts are high in protein which can stabilize blood-sugar levels, so, some packets of nuts would help people avoid low blood sugar that is dangerous for the diabetic.

Moreover, he said that olive oil should be used instead of margarine for it comes from a special type of monounsaturated fat. Also, olive oil brings many benefits like keeping blood-sugar levels and reducing the risk of heart disease. Aside from the "eat fat, get thin" diet, there are other studies which found out that fats similar in olive oils help lower the cholesterol levels in the body.

Dr. Hyman quoted that to complete the "eat fat, get thin" diet, the oily fish like mackerel, trout, salmon other kinds which are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids should be present. It's because Omega-3 is known as essential fats that play a key role in keeping the body run smoothly. And the last but not the least to complete the "eat fat, get thin" diet is to have delicious avocados that are rich in nutrients like potassium and folate.
