This raises a question..if that is a bad fat, what is a good fat?
Good fats make up your nervous system. Good fats create good cholesterol, which is a hormone. Cholesterol creates estrogen and progesterone, testosterone and DHEA. Good fats keep you looking younger. Good fats also help to burn fat, create a stronger immune system and stronger bones. In fact, eating a low fat diet is extremely harmful to your health.
Fats to absolutely avoid:
hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils like canola oil used in french fries, potato chips and almost every other packaged food on the planet. These oils are turned rancid before they even go into the food you are gonna eat. Eating canola oil is like eating a piece of fat that has been burned, then strained to get out the chunky pieces. Also, margarine is basically plastic, so go with butter.These are called trans-fats and there is nothing good about them.Avoid these as much as possible, eat fresh food…God food, not this stuff than man makes.
And I wanted to add that our family isn’t perfect, we eat an occasional potato chip and take our kids to ChickFila (the only fast food they know about) but it’s a treat and NOT an every week thing.
What type of supplements or food does you family eat to stay healthy?
