Our diets have changed more radically over the last 30 years than they have for centuries before. There is a food revolution that has secretly taken place and most people are not even aware of it. Most of today’s food causes toxic inflammation in the body because they contain ingredients that are not good for you.
The reason these ingredients are used is due to the fact that major food companies are more interested in the dollar than their customers’ health. It's more important today than ever to be knowledgeable and make wise food choices.
Our diets these days are too rich in Omega-6 fats and low in Omega-3 fats. The reverse is supposed to be ideal!
If you want to increase your overall health and energy level, and prevent health conditions like heart disease, cancer, depression and Alzheimer's, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, ulcerative colitis, and a host of other diseases, one of the most important strategies at your disposal is to increase your intake of omega-3 fats and reduce your intake of processed omega-6 fats.
Yes that is the key term here: processed. Just as I have been saying for many years, the problem with saturated fats really wasn’t the healthy saturated fats (such as organic eggs and meats) that were causing the problems, but the heating and processing that damaged the oils.
Omega-6 is found in almost all processed foods found on supermarket shelves.
If you’re planning to lose weight and be healthy, you will need to restore balance to your body. With fewer aches and pains, your workout sessions will be better. With a higher metabolic rate, your fat loss will be faster. The less toxins in your body, the less fat cells required to bind these toxins to keep you safe.
The best way to restore balance is to consume foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and decrease consumption of Omega-6 rich foods. This is easier said than done… but it can be done.
The ideal ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 fats intake should be 1:1. Research has shown that currently, the average American diet is at a 1:25. Now you will understand why obesity is becoming an epidemic and a whole range of health issues that have never been seen on such a large scale before are emerging.
Important steps you can take to reduce consumption of Omega-6 fats
• Eat organic foods
• Eat cruciferous vegetables
• Avoid processed food products
• Do not consume foods cooked in processed vegetable oils
• No Junk Food
Restoring balance will mean consuming foods that have Omega-3 fatty acids. The best way to do this is to purchase fish oil and krill oil supplements.
You may have read that you can get Omega-3 fats from fish like salmon and sardine.
That’s true but our ratio is so unbalanced that you will have to eat pounds and pounds of fish to restore the balance. It is much easier to get a high quality fish oil or krill oil supplement like Omega Krill 5X.
Adding a fish oil supplement to your diet will do wonders for your health and as a result, you’ll automatically find yourself losing weight once balance is restored.
