Fats, Good and Bad
Minimize your use of butter and all oils, including olive, safflower, peanut and corn oil. Oil is simply a liquid form of fat. Despite misinformation to the contrary, margarine is the worst offender of all, since it is partially hydrogenated.
Don’t I need good fat? Yes—you do need some fat in your diet—for survival, all you really need is about 3 to 4 percent of your total calories. A healthful amount for daily intake would be about 10 percent. That’s all! Most people in Western countries get ten times that amount. A total of 68 percent of the population of industrialized nations dies of fat-intake illnesses, including heart and circulatory diseases. You will get all the fat you need from a diet of vegetables, fruits, beans and whole grains. Your body can synthesize the fats you need from the foods you eat. The safest and healthiest way to get your essential fatty acids is in their natural forms. Beans, vegetables and fruits have trace amounts of fat and are rich in alpha-linolenic acid. In this form, fats are found in the correct amounts in protected environments surrounded by vitamins, minerals, fibers, antioxidants and other phytochemicals to make them balanced nutritionally.
Fish oils have been popularized as an aid against everything from heart problems to arthritis. The bad news about fish oils is that omega-3s in fish oils are highly unstable molecules that tend to decompose and, in the process, unleash dangerous free radicals. Research has shown that omega-3s are found in a more stable form in vegetables, fruits and beans.
You should also minimize nuts, seeds, avocados, olives and soybean products (including tofu, soy cheese and soy milk). Soybean products are high in fat, unless they have been specially processed, but low-fat varieties are also not recommended. Processed soy foods such as soy burgers and soy cheese may increase your risk for cancer, impair function of your thyroid, immune system, brain, as well as cause bone loss and reproductive problems. Consuming a small amount of tofu in a stir fry or a small amount of soy milk in your oatmeal is not a concern. A new issue, though, is that more and more of the soybeans grown today are being genetically modified, which puts products made from them into the non-food category, since your body will not recognize them as real foods.
If you are tired of fad diets, wasting your money on expensive dietary supplements and yo-yo dieting, hypnosis for weight loss can make the difference for you.
