Is it time for you to get an oil-change?
Here is what I mean.
You probably already know by now that your body needs friendly fats and healthy oils, just like your vehicle needs oil…
…But what you may not realize is there are a few “hidden” problems that come with oils that could be damaging to your body and making you gain more fat.
(More on how to avoid this below.)
Also, most diets are extremely deficient in the healthiest oils on earth: Seed Oils.
– Flax seeds: contains 8 grams of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), making it
the richest source of ALA in the standard North American diet. It boosts your
metabolism, keeps your hair healthy and helps your nails grow… it also relieves
discomfort in colitis sufferers.
– Pumpkin seeds: helps in regulating the level of cholesterol and also
reduces the risk of stroke, heart disease and arteriosclerosis, and certain
cancers. A powerful anti-inflammatory, pumpkin seed oil also stops kidney
– Sesame seeds: high in vitamin E, and also contains sesaminol and sesamin,
which helps reduce the risk of heart disease and may protect the body from cancer.
Also very high in B-complex vitamins, amino acids and essential minerals. An
anti-bacterial and provides kidney support.
– Sunflower seeds: Healthy for our cardiovascular system. It contains plenty
of vitamin E and high levels of essential fatty acids. Sunflower also provides skin
and cardiovascular support.
– Coriander seeds: One of the best healthy oils was found in King Tut’s Tomb, a tonic for the heart and stomach. A natural aphrodisiac, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Also a known home remedy for diabetes, coriander supports the pancreas, liver, spleen, and digestive system.
As you can clearly see, going out of your way to consume seeds from oils is definitely worth the effort.
That’s why Karen and I are always munching on raw sunflower and pumpkin seeds.
Which leads me to problem #1 with friendly fats and oils.
Problem #1: Portion Control
Unfortunately, it typically takes about 500 extra calories worth of raw seeds, or more, in order to reap a good portion of the benefits listed above.
So even though we all need these friendly oils in our nutrition plan, raw nuts, raw seeds, and friendly fats have a VERY high likelihood of adding an additional 500-700+calories a day to your plan if you really want to get an effective dose.
This is obviously not practical if you want to be in a deficit to lose, or maintain weight.
Always…always monitor your portion control when eating friendly fats and oils.
Problem #2: Label Lies
If you depend on retail and online stores for your source of seed oils, (grape seed, cotton seed, sunflower, almond, etc) you could be doing more harm than good.
The truth is that almost every kind of oil available for purchase in retail stores (as well as online) contains micronutrients so severely damaged that they can be harmful.
Simply put, seed oils sold in stores or online are 99% rancid by the time you take them home and consume them. (They are not healthy oils)!
Karen and I have recently come across a super simple, and far superior way to solve this friendly fat and seed oil trick bag.
It’s called Panaseeda Oil that has been extracted from organic, NON-GMO, non-rancid seeds specifically designed to help you reap all the benefits of seed oils listed above…
…Without eating hundreds of seeds all day long.
We just pour a tablespoon of our healthy oils onto our salads every night and the whole “seed oil dilemma” is solved.
Plus it has an awesome flavor, perfect for salads and veggies.
So you have a choice.
You can sit there and eat hundreds of seeds all day long and take a stab at trying to use store bought seed oils…
BOTH of which wreak havoc on your health and waistline.
Or you can just take 1 teaspoon of a non-rancid oil that has been extracted properly from those hundreds of healthy seeds using a patented pressing process.
It’s the perfect way to get all the benefits of fat-burning oils WITHOUT the fat-storage.
