It seems every time I do a seminar and talk about nutrition, the whole concept of omega 3 fats brings up a lot of questions and comments.
So today I’m going to give you my take on the benefits of omega 3 fats when it comes to dropping pounds and doing it in a pain free way.
Heres’ the bottom line. Most Omega 3’s come originally from living GREEN FOOD and most Omega 6’s come predominately from the seeds of these living green foods called GRAIN!
So…here’s a question…How do you fatten a steer? GRAIN! That’ll get you a nice big, juicy, corn fed, marbled, inflammation bomb!
So then…what makes a leaner (and healthier) animal? GRASS!! That’s right…even grass fed beef is high in omega 3 fats. So it’s grass fed all the way if you choose to eat animal products.
And by the way…are YOU an animal and do you think YOU could become a “marbled” inflammation bomb by eating too much grain? Hmmmm…
And when you’re ready to kick your health and vitality up even another notch, you can just get ALL your anti-inflammatory, fat burning omega 3’s directly from GREEN FOOD instead of dealing with the meat at all!
You’ve got to eat a whole lot more of it to get the same amount of good omega 3’s you’d get from a wild salmon or grass fed steak but the bonus here is that you’ll be getting a ton of
- highly absorbable minerals,
- and electrical ENERGY that comes directly from the sun that you lose when you cook the meat (and if you cook the plant, too, for that matter)
(Yet another nod for the raw food diet!)
And when you eat with a “green not grain” intention, you’ll also be reducing your insulin levels which will tell your body to start burning fat instead of STORING fat!
So get ready to be amazed at how your fat (and especially your belly fat) starts melting away not to mention all the other “side benefits” of increasing intake omega 3 fats from plants like:
-lower blood pressure
-better skin and hair
-clarity of thought
-better FOCUS (yes, it’s a MUST for ADHD!)
-lower cholesterol and triglycerides
-better blood sugar balance
-and so, so, so much more!
So it’s GRASSES and GREENS…NOT GRAINS that keep you lean and vital. Choose local first and get it organic if possible and better yet…GROW YOUR OWN!
I’ll be back with Part 3 in a few days revealing key strategies to reduce levels of the most infamous hormone in human physiology that packs on belly fat, eats away at your lean muscle mass, and keeps you in “fat production” mode no matter what you do!
And a QUESTION for you…How are you getting YOUR Omega 3’s? Leave a comment here on the blog!
P.S. I’ve got a 10 minute video for you that explains this whole Omega 6 to Omega 3 fat balance thing in more detail that I took from one of our introductory mini boot camps. I was going to post it today but my power cord to my external hard drive went defunct and I can’t access my video. So stay tuned for that in a couple of days…it is THE most important nutrition concept that, once you understand it, can totally transform your nutritional health.
