Good Fat vs. Bad Fat

Eat like an elephant – look like a gazelle. It’s all in the FATS! Let’s find out what’s a “good fat” and what’s a “bad fat”

Bad Fats

“Bad” fats are found in nearly every bread, grain, and cracker in America.

The man-made process of turning something into oil de-natures and damages the oil, making it a toxic, rancid fat that contributes to high blood cholesterol levels (i.e. LDL cholesterol, the bad cholesterol), heart disease, weight gain, insulin resistance, and just overall poor health. These are your saturated fats and trans fats — think fast food and lard galore. 

De-natured fats congest the cells and create a barrier, so that toxins can’t be released, and nutrients cant’ get IN! Sick cells = sick body.

Good Fats

“Good” fats are naturally occurring and haven’t been damaged by processing. Think omega-3 fatty acids and healthy foods like olive oil, vegetable oil, canola oil, margarine, coconut oil, sardines and other fatty fish, and everything that boosts your HDL with polyunsaturated fat and monounsaturated fat goodness. 

If you were to squeeze an olive and collect the oil .. that is natural, real food vs. a man-made fake, processed food.

Each cell in our body is surrounded by a layer of healthy fat – so we need to feed our body with good fats to optimize them and allow for detoxification.

When cells are fully functioning, they’ll naturally detox and even pull off fluid and assist in weight loss, not to mention heart health along with other health benefits!

Watch The Heat

Heating up even a “good” oil too much (to the point that it smokes) will turn that healthy fat into a rancid fat.

That means cell congestion and toxification. Each oil has a different smoke-point, so be aware of which oil you’re using for each application.

For an easy source of healthy fats, try Livingood Daily Omegas!

Livingood Daily Omegas contain an omega 3-6-7-9 formula contains a blend of wild deep-sea sourced fish oils containing the omega-3 fatty acids (EPA/DHA) in the TruTG™ form, the most important omega-6 fatty acids (GLA from borage oil), the omega-7 fats palmitoleic acid and omega-9 fats oleic acid from certified virgin organic macadamia nut oil.

EPA helps keep GLA metabolism in an anti-inflammatory mode.

In addition, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) plays as many important roles in human health as EPA, along with promoting brain wellness.
