Fuel with healthy fats

June 22, 2016

When people are trying to lose weight the macronutrient they mistakenly reduce or cut out completely is healthy fats.  Healthy fats are super-critical to a healthy metabolism by helping us feel full, it fuels our bodies and the right kinds can help manage inflammation which helps us burn fat!

 

Nuts, seeds and oils (like coconut, flax and almond) are all great sources of healthy fat.   Some animal fat is even beneficial as long as it comes from organic sources.

 

Low-level, chronic inflammation appears to be a significant contributor to heart disease, weight gain and has even been linked to an increase risk for many types of cancer. One way we increase the level of inflammation in our bodies is through our diet. Many of the oils we consume, such as vegetables oils and fat from conventionally farmed animal proteins contain high amounts of omega-6 fatty acids, some of which contribute to inflammation. Because omega-3 fatty acids found in fish reduce inflammation and are harder to come by, their supplementation is recommended to maintain a healthy balance.
