Best weight loss supplements

Do you think that this is a contributing factor to signs of aging with the brain? Alzheimers, even? Not getting the proper fatty nutrients you need over the long term?

Saturated fat is a villian? Sorry, but saturated fat gives your cells their structure. Mono and ply unsaturated fats give your cells their plyability. Together you need a balance of Saturated, mono and polyunsaturated fats. And in my opinion, the source is important too. Fats from meat need to be free roaming for poultry, grass fed for beef and wild for fish.

With fat, there's is but one villian....Trans fats. Hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils. Figures, it's the one man made fat. Let's also not forget that less than 10 years ago, they were telling us the ALA fats in avocados and nuts were bad for us...now we know otherwise.

As for the rest of our diets, the villian is anything processed. Particularly sugars.

from regular white table sugar, to high fructose corn syrup, turbinado and even agave nectar. Humans were meant to have sugar in the confines of their original containers....Fruit!!!

But underlying all that, diet must be in balance too.

We should eat mostly a plant based diet. Eat organic whenever possible. Eat meats from naturally raised sources, and not too much of them.
