Get the “Skinny” on Quality Fats

Ok, this comes up a lot counseling folks on diabetes, weight loss, improving energy etc.

YES, FATS are important and necessary!

Watch this short video for details for examples of “Good Fats”

As always, shoot questions here….

Also, I am looking for feedback on the video blogs….So far it seems like I am able to push out more information that way, I hope you find it useful.

    Good info, thanks. Is portion size a concern for fats, for example in relation to snacking on almonds or pecans?

      Portion is not normally an issue. The fats turn off hunger centers which lead to better blood sugar, insulin and satiety.
      Keep portions about the size of your fist when it comes to proteins (Which nuts have fat and protein).

        Excellent video sir. What would you recommend for patients to eat who can not afford some of the important foods we need to eat in order to loose weight. Some patients always state “those foods recommended by the doctor are too expensive to buy. “

          Tricky to answer that one Brenda. Pay the Farmer or Pay the Doctor. I acknowledge that starchy, nutritionally void foods are cheaper up front.
          How much is the value of health, lost time from work, medications, etc?
          I encourage patients to do the best they can. Make “Better” choices where they can.
          I have heard this argument before. We even wrote articles early on developing this website responding to that complaint.
          Honestly it’s just not true. Arguably eating more nutrient dense food leads to eating less of it.
          Final note, financially speaking, how high on the budget is health and proper nutrition?
