Which Fats Do I Use To Replace Vegetable Oils?

 The best fats are low in Polyunsaturated Fats (blue) and high in either Monounsaturated (yellow) or Saturated Fats (red).
I use coconut oil in my cooking or heating meals. Butter is wonderful in baking. Olive oil is fantastic on salads.
My daily eating plan includes both coconut oil and olive oil.  That way I get both of the healthy fats: Monounsaturated and Saturated fats.

Health - Diet Ketogenic, Fatty Acid in Oils, Dr. Phinney 2016.png

Where did I get the chart? I got it from Dr. Phinney in his presentation:   ‘Recent Developments in LCHF and Nutritional Ketosis’
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8uSv6OgHJE
STEPHEN PHINNEY a physician scientist who has spent 35 years studying diet, exercise, fatty acids, and inflammation.  He has held academic positions at the Universities of Vermont, Minnesota, and California at Davis; and leadership positions at Monsanto, Galileo Laboratories, and Efficas.  He received his MD from Stanford University, PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry from MIT, and did post-doctoral research at Harvard.

He has designed, completed, and published data from more than 20 clinical protocols involving foods, diets, exercise, oxidative stress, and inflammation.  His recent work in the private sector has resulted in several issued and pending patents.  He has authored more than 70 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters on a wide variety of topics, including the effects of diets and specific nutrients on inflammation, the interaction between diet and exercise and their effects on obesity, body composition, physical performance, and cellular membrane structure.

Dr. Phinney’s clinical experience includes 20 years of inpatient and outpatient clinical nutrition, including directing multidisciplinary weight management programs in 3 locations.  As an internationally recognized expert in obesity, carbohydrate-restricted diets, diet and performance, and essential fatty acid metabolism, he has given hundreds of presentations to industry, health care professional, and lay audiences.

In collaboration with Dr. Eric Westman and Dr. Jeff Volek, he co-authored the New York Times Best Selling “The New Atkins for a New You” published in March 2010.

I highly recommend this book.
Please consider changing the fats you consume. Eating the the right fuel is a good habit to get in.

 

Canola oil has been proven to cause lung cancer and heart disease.

Canola oil comes from genetically engineered rapeseed. Rapeseed is easy to produce because it is so toxic not even insects want it. It was originally used as a lubricant for machinery in small industries. It has been proven to cause lung cancer and heart disease. It was originally used in Europe in farm animal feeds. These animals went blind, began exhibiting various diseases, and finally went mad and began attacking people.

So what do you do about it?
 
Natural News:  Switching from a diet high in these polyunsaturated and refined vegetable oils (partially hydrogenated oils are Trans Fats) to one with raw or at least minimally processed medium chain fatty acids (MCT) can thus reduce our risk of cancer, heart disease, and various other diseases associated with these dangerous refined oil products.
What is the big deal about Trans Fat? 
 
Health Canada is banning Trans Fats.  From the CBC News Article: “Canadian researchers estimate a ban (onTrans fats) could prevent 12,000 heart attacks in Canada over 20 years.” Source: http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/trans-fats-1.4292241
Where do I find these medium chain fatty acids (MCT)?  
 
Rich sources for commercial extraction of beneficial MCTs include palm kernel oil and coconut oil. 
 
I use coconut oil for heating up foods or for baking. 
Please look for 100% pure coconut oil that is cold-pressed to ensure the highest integrity and quality. It will become a liquid if it is over 72 degrees. Some suppliers mix it with vegetable oil to reduce the cost.  Their label may or may not say, “partially hydrogenated”, which is Trans Fat.
 
Look for a product like Silkeny.  http://www.silkeny.com/our-products/

“Canadian researchers estimate a ban (on Trans fats) could prevent 12,000 heart attacks in Canada over 20 years.”

Health Canada trans fat ban takes effect next year.

Since I do not know if the products in the store are 100% pure, I’ll stay with Silkeny.  It rich and creamy and tastes fantastic right out of the bottle.  http://www.silkeny.com/our-products/

The best way to predict your future (health) is to create it (with healthy foods today). 

 

50% percent of men and 41% of women are expected to develop cancer during their lifetimes. Groundbreaking research reveals cancer is primarily a metabolic disease that need not be a death sentence.

You can do something about cancer whether you have it now or are afraid you may develop it.

Genetic mutations are not the primary cause of cancer but are, rather, a downstream effect of the defective energy metabolism. As long as your mitochondria remain healthy and functional, your chances of developing cancer are slim!

In this link Dr. Mercola interviews Dr. Seyfried.  Seyfried is one of the pioneers in the application of nutritional ketosis for cancer, a therapy that stems from the work of Dr. Otto Warburg, one of the most brilliant biochemists of the 20th century.

In this article you will learn how you can avoid cancer and if you have it, really fight cancer.

Diabetes is a disease of insulin resistance, Dr. Fung says. In other words, it’s a disease of excess insulin. It is a dietary disease, he says, and you can’t cure dietary disease with drugs.

OBESITY: Is it hiding a bigger problem? Dr. Attia, as an ER doctor, blamed his patient because he had to amputate her foot. Please listen to his tearful apology.

As a young ER doctor, Peter Attia felt contempt for a patient with diabetes. She was overweight, he thought, and thus responsible for the fact that she needed a foot amputation. But years later, Attia received an unpleasant medical surprise that led him to wonder: is our understanding of diabetes right? Could the precursors to diabetes cause obesity, and not the other way around? A look at how assumptions may be leading us to wage the wrong medical war.
