WHAT IS A GOOD FAT SOURCE?



Most people consume too much omega-6 and not enough omega-3.


Back in my studies during 2013 with Dr Paul Cribb, omega-3 and its benefits were a high focus and ever since then, I encourage a diet that includes lots of it!


Basically, the ideal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 is 4:1.

Most people's ratio sits around 25:1.


What does this imbalance do?

It encourages chronic inflammation which can express itself in:


  1. Unwanted Weight Gain

  2. Cardiovascular Disease

  3. Diabetes

  4. Dementia

  5. Depression & Poor Mental Health

  6. Cognitive Degeneration (Older Population)

  7. Poor Concentration & Behavioral Problems

  8. Poor Results from Exercise

  9. Poor Performance & Recovery


Where to from here?


  • Increase the amount of omega-3 in your diet

  • Find a high strength omega-3 supplement

  • Find food sources you can easily include long-term


Our energy balance (calories in vs calories out) is the main driver determining if we lose, gain or maintain our weight. Once we establish an understanding of this & what we need, addressing where our energy comes from is very important.


Health is everything!


MY FAVOURITE FATS & OMEGA-3 AT THE MOMENT:


Chia, Hemp & Flaxseeds (2Tbs)

Walnuts & Cashews (20g)

ABC Spread (20g)

Smoked Salmon (100-200g)

Avocado (100g)


And remember, information can be overwhelming. So.....


KEEP IT SIMPLE!


If you can add a few tablespoons of chia seeds to your smoothie, sprinkle a few crushed nuts to yoghurt or your main meals & add avocado to your toast when having bacon & eggs on toast, you are winning!


Something is always better than nothing and will do wonders for your HEALTH (& I'm not talking about weight)
