Fat is pHat!

It's very interesting how "programmed" we are. When I tell people - especially those who want to lose weight - to get more fat in their diet, they look at me like I'm an alien. Well, I am a bit strange, but...

Really. Fat is is good for you - that is IF it is the right kind of fat. Saturated animal fats are not good. Hydrogenated fats from oils are not good.

But polyunsaturated fats and monounsaturated fats are really good for you. Not only do they help to build healthy cells (every cell in your body has a fat membrane), but they also bind fat soluble toxins and take them out of your body - and most toxins are fat soluble. Getting an ample amount in your body every day will help keep your body healthy and your pH prime.

Also, fat makes a much better fuel for your body to burn than sugar does. Protein is a horrible fuel to's meant to build cells - not to be used as fuel. That's why high protein diets are toxic - they create too much acid.

Here are the 3 fats you want to get into your body every day...and by the need about 50 - 70 grams a day just to hep build healthy cells:

All of these are best in raw / cold pressed form. Avoid oils that say refined or "light"...they've been tampered with.

1. Polyunsaturated - Flax seed oil. Take a tablespoon a day.

2. Monounsaturated - Olive Oil. Take a tablespoon a day.

3. Medium Chain Triglicerides - Coconut Oil. Take a tablespoon a day.

This will give you about 40 - 50 grams of cell building fats plus all of your omega 3's 6's and 9's.

Fat really can be pHat!
