Fasting Journal 27: Choosing oils and fats carefully
When you eat a diet that's high in fat, it's important to choose well. Highly processed oils are very bad for your health. Crappy fats and oils cause inflammatory illnesses. Diseases of the cardiovascular system, cancer and autoimmune illnesses just to name a few.
They do that by creating an imbalance with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. For humans that ration needs to be 1:1. Sadly unsaturated fatty acids from vegetable oils skews that ratio to the tune of about 15:1 and as high as 20:1.
Your best fat is saturated fat. Unfortunately we've been very misinformed that saturated fat is artery clogging. It's not. It's what we're supposed to be consuming.
Vegetable oils are highly refined and not fit to eat. Get this, originally vegetable oils were refined for the purposes of lubricating machinery!
However, after the oils are taken from the plants, usually by chemical extraction, they are then "scrubbed" and refined even more and the horrible smells taken away, they are then bottled and touted as being heart healthy. Ewwww.
So stay away from the following oils which are high in Omega-6 acids.
Read food product labels carefully.
You'll be shocked at what you end up putting back on the store shelves!!

That's it for now for fasting journal 27. Tomorrow, dinnertime, will mark the end of my Time Restricted Feeding and the beginning of my 48-hour, ketogenic, time restricted fasting protocol. Oh boy! Try explaining that one to people who are still believers in the Standard American Diet. (S.A.D. is such a perfect acronym, hhhmmm?)
Are you trying Time Restricted Feeding or thinking about it? Share your thoughts here!
