- Cut the fat out!

- New research study links fats to …
- Are you tired of hearing about how bad those fats are for you?
Good fats, what they are and why you need them!
The topic of fat is constantly in the magazines and
newspapers you read, sound bits from the radio and television
you listen to and there is no shortage of experts with books
talking about fats.
Unfortunately, most have a very narrow focus on weight and/or
cholesterol and so they miss the bigger picture on fats!
- You may find it interesting to know that in the just the
last 50 years, despite all the low-fat, fat-free (don’t
forget sugar-free) and diet products available, as a nation,
over 60% of people now carry excess to excessive weight. The
World Health Organization has called it an epidemic.
- The processed foods also contain many other ingredients
that are not health promoting and contribute to weight gain,
illness and disease. Some are now suggesting the food
industry is the next great threat to society.
Ever wonder why the majority of waist lines are increasing
and illnesses are becoming more prevalent at a younger age (like
Diabetes II, the world's fastest growing disease) even as the
food industry introduces a wider variety of "healthy", "diet"
and "low-fat/fat-free/sugar-free" products?
Some fats are absolutely necessary for health, others are
You need to consume foods that contain the good fats and
those fats are called Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) – often
referred to as Omega 3, 6 and 9 which are essential for the
proper functioning of your body.
Good fats are extremely important for your nervous system,
especially brain functions and brain development. They are also
essential to strengthen your immune, circulatory (heart,
arteries and blood) and structural (skin, bones and hair)
Good fats or EFA’s are called essential because they cannot
be manufactured within the body and so must be acquired through
the foods consumed and/or supplements.
An additional point to remember is that good fats in the body
help to push out bad fats, and are necessary to ensure a healthy

Essential carrier for the fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E,

calcium more available at the cellular level, especially
bones and teeth.
Prevents sun burns – when enough good fats in our body,
the body is much less likely to burn – the good fats inside
offer lots of protection outside. Still be reasonable
with sun exposure – we need some sun, but only some – again
moderation is the key!
The 5 best EFA-rich foods you need in your diet
Making EFA-rich foods part of your diet is absolutely
essential to lasting good health. Here are some of the
main EFA food sources though like anything, they still should be
used in moderation.
- Cold-water fish preferably from the North Atlantic
Ocean served 2-3 times/week, baked, not fried! No oil
or fat added.
- Raw nuts and seeds – great as a regular snack but
avoid roasted and salted varieties. Enjoy a handful or
two/day or crush and mix in salad. (Store
- Avocados – in moderation 1-2/week. Slice and add
to your salads, use in sandwiches or mash ¼ to ½ avocado
then serve to baby, children or anybody in the family!
- Extra-virgin olive oil, hemp oil, flax oil –
cold-pressed, 1st pressure. Purchase in smaller sized,
dark glass bottles (to avoid rancidity) as once opened, it
has a short shelf life, even if due date is much later.
- Eggs – free-range or organic and poach or
soft-boil. The yolk should be liquid and the white has to be
well-cooked, no other fats or synthetic spray should be
Butter is good fat, if used in moderation
Butter is a natural animal product – organic is preferred as
it has less other “ingredients” and it is of better overall
quality. Use in strict moderation.
To avoid rancid fats which are considered bad fats, Store
your foods carefully.
Integrating EFA-rich foods into your diet not only enhance your
health, they open new dimensions to foods which adds welcome
color, taste and texture to your foods.
Bad fats you should avoid at all times
- Margarine including the
new improved versions
- Fried and deep-fried foods
- Any foods containing trans-fats
- Any foods containing shortenings or vegetable oils,
- Anything with “hydrogenated” oil/fats
- Heated/cooked oils and fats included olive oil
The best tip is to read the label if you're buying processed
foods and avoid the above plus anything that says artificial
colouring, falvouring, fat-free, sugar-free and so on.
Because you may not get enough
As most people I've come across in my practice and teachings
do not get enough good fat from their nutrition or get too much
bad fat in, I have found that a little natural supplementation
goes a long way.
For some people, they need it daily to get started for the
first 3 months to just restore
balance in their body and build a
reserve while others it only when they do not get it from their
good food sources.

SuperOil Caps (#8235-8) (My healthy candy)
A nutritional supplement which contains a blend the best oils
available including cold-pressed linseed oil (aka flax seed),
cold-water fish oil, soya lecithin (non-GMO), evening primrose
oil, natural lemon oil and natural vitamin E.
I personally love to chew them and have many
clients who also enjoy them. First you get a bit of the
oily taste (it does not taste fishy at all!) mixed with a
lemon taste which reminds me of some candies like “starburst!
Then you get the gelatin and as it gets softer and melts away,
it is a like a gummy bear – it is even a bit sweet.
I call them my “healthy candy” because it is a fun and easy
way to incorporate good fats into your “Habits of Health”.
