The body requires some fat from food **** It helps the body absorb some vitamins and minerals.
Good fats include monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.
Ways to Live a “Healthy Fat” Lifestyle
“DO NOT COOK” with and stay away from canola oil, hydrogenated oils, vegetable oils and processed oils
Cook with coconut oil or real butter (grassfed butter highly recommended)
Although olive oil is most beneficial in its raw form, it may be used for cooking when lightly sautéing or cooking with low heat
Eat foods that include healthy fats such as oily fish like salmond and sardines, avocados, organic eggs, and grass-fed meats and pastured poultry.
Include healthy sources of fat in your diet and stay away from processed foods
The misconception that fats is a main contributor to weight gain has been overturned. In fact, good fat speeds up the metabolism. By eating for health and not for low calories one can in turn live a life that is well balanced and at a healthy body weight. This doesn’t mean you can grab a block of cheese and jump on your couch in front of your TV and start chomping your way to skinny. The problem with this is that we may gain weight from eating cheese not only because it is rich in fat, but mostly due to its high acidic level and inflammatory affects to the body. In response to high pH acid, the body creates fat cells to store the acid. Almonds have 70% fat, and pork has only 58%. However, pork has one of the highest acid values, -38, while almonds are alkaline forming, +3. Cucumbers and watermelons are so alkalizing that they can neutralize the acidifying effect of eating beef. This is why it is very important to know the pH index of all foods, showing the food’s ability to alkalize the body. Please see the reference links to pH Food Indexes.
The so-called “bad” cholesterol, lipoprotein (LDL) is made by our own liver in order to bind the toxins and deactivate the acidic waste that came from certain food, not to cause arteriosclerosis (3).
Dr. Frank Sacks, Professor of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention, Department of Nutrition, HarvardSchool of Public Health states that fatty acids are needed for numerous body functions. Once again, balance is the key in nourishing the body’s cells, so too with all fatty acid intake and their function in our bodies.
Added to fatty acids many important functions, is energy storage. Interestingly, again showing the body’s ingenuity; if glucose (a type of necessary good sugar) isn’t available for energy, the body uses fatty acids to fuel the cells instead.
Three Different Types of Fatty Acids
Omega-3s move oxygen through the bloodstream to all parts of the body. These essential nutrients aid cell function in many ways: they are crucial for brain function, heart function, normal growth development; aids cell membrane development, strength, and function, and they are necessary for strong organs and tissues. Our bodies cannot make omega-3 fats, we must get them through our food or when necessary, additionally through pure food supplementation. Consult a wellness professional for science-based real-food supplementation.
Omega-6s is an essential fatty acid, are also needed for brain function and the healthy production and maintenance of our bone, skin and hair; the regulation of our metabolism; and reproductive function.Our bodies cannot make Omega-6 fats, we must get them through food. There is an abundance of Omega-6 in the western diet and is important to have a balance with the Omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-9: Unlike Omega-3 and Omega -6 fatty acids, our body is capable of manufacturing omega-9 fatty acids. Therefore, it is not as critical that we get them directly from the diet as so for omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Omega-9 fatty acids are derived from monounsaturated fats: the omega-3 and 6 are derived from polyunsaturated fats. General health benefits of Omega-9 fatty acids include: improving cholesterol levels, proper heart health and improving immune system functioning. (See juicing section for immune system information.)
Dr. Warburg is accredited to discovering that all normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation and ideally the fernantation of sugars. Oxygen gas, the donor of energy in plants and animals, is dethroned in the cancer cells and replaced by the energy yielding reaction of the lowest living forms, namely the fermentation of sugar (processed sugar). Thus cancer survives anaerobically, without oxygen and additionally it survives in a low pH acidic and toxemic environment. As he states, ” Cancerous tissues are acidic”. Cancer cannot survive in high levels of oxygen.
*Note: GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism. Also referred to as GE or Genetically Engineered. Toxins (pesticides) are contrived (engineered) into the seed of plants to kill bugs that try to eat them. Genes from other sources than the plant itself are “sown” into the seed for man-made purposes. The natural gene structure of the seed is altered to become “other than nature intended”. They have never been proven safe and are to be avoided.
