Whether you suffer from Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, Obesity, emotional eating, or have problems with weight management due to restricting or overeating, you need to know about what fats do in your body once and for all. In other words whether you are obese, underweight or a normal weight, if you are having problems regulating food intake in healthy ways, this series on fat is a must.
A summary of dietary recommendations for fat:
- When cooking, use a healthy saturated fat such as cold pressed unrefined organic virgin coconut oil.
- As a healthy snack alternative, choose sprouted nuts and seeds as they are rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids.
- Incorporate organic flax meal into your favorite recipes, since it’s a great source of omega-3 essential fatty acids and fiber.
- Eat more wild caught Salmon. Remember to only choose wild fish. Farm-raised fish contain very little omega-3, since they are fed land-based diets devoid of omega-3. Fish obtain ample amounts of omega-3 naturally through their wild diet.
- Eat grass-fed, grass-finished animal protein and dairy.
- Eat pastured pork that is fed non-GMO grain as a supplement.
- Eat poultry that is either completely pastured or pastured and fed only organic grain as a supplement.
- Supplement your diet with mercury-free high-quality raw fish oil such as Blue Ice from Green Pastures, which is a rich source of omega-3.
- Make your own mayonnaise from coconut oil and use it in deviled eggs, and in egg, chicken and tuna salads
- Use olive, macadamia nut, and avocado cold pressed extra virgin organic oils for salad dressings.
- Choose full-fat, raw butter, cream, and dairy products from pastured cows rather than low-fat or fat-free versions. Check the product labels. Many low-fat versions contain unhealthy additives to make up for the lack of taste from fat.
