Episode Summary

In this episode, we dive deeper into healthy eating by tackling another macronutrient - FATS!

Last week, we dove deep into carbohydrates - tune in if you'd like a review!

This week we talk about all of the different types of fats - saturated, unsaturated, short chain, medium chain, long chain, omega-3, omega-6...

All of these fats are different!

We pick it all apart and talk about how these fats affect the body differently. 

The take aways are...

  • Focus on WHOLE FOODS (eg - olives over olive oil)

  • Focus on unsaturated fats from nuts, seeds, avocados, olives, etc

  • Remember that the body prefers carbohydrates as a fuel source - so these fats can get stored as fat

  • High fat diets can strain the liver and gall bladder and "slow the metabolism"

  • Remember the concepts of food combining - don't eat high carb, starchy foods with too much fat (especially saturated fat!)

I apologize for Susanna's poor connection - thats the only reason I was speaking the whole time! We will be reunited tonight 🙂
