The Truth About Fats
also available on
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 🙂
