Eating good fats is crucial for wellbeing. The average person is made up of 15 to 30% of fat. As we become mindful we step away from the low fat diets we once bought into, as we know they are all chemical laden, this is now linked to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and lots more . We now know for a fact that the good fats are where it is at for optimal health in body and mind.
If we eat good fats we will be able to metabolize insulin, and have our blood sugar stabilise and regulate. We won’t store fat for the hell of it as the right fights increase fat burning, make you less hungry, and reduce the amount we actually store.
The poor quality fats you should avoid (reads the labels if you feel you have to buy packaged food) are corn, soy, cottonseed, or safflower.
Here is the good fat list:
- Extra virgin olive oil (organic is best)
- Wild Salmon
- Grass fed butter
- Organic raw coconut oil
