Important diet and lifestyle strategies for a healthier life
#Important #diet #lifestyle #strategies #healthier #life Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
In the “inspired” interview above, I discuss what I believe are some of the most important diet and lifestyle strategies to protect your health, starting with avoiding seed oils (also commonly known as vegetable oils). Examples of cooking oils to avoid are canola, corn, canola, cottonseed, and soybean oil.
The reason for this recommendation is that these types of industrial seed oils contain large amounts of a harmful omega-6 fat called linoleic acid (LA). LA is not dangerous in and of itself. The danger is really in the dosage. Most people consume up to 10 times more LA than they need, and the excessive amount is what causes the problem.
LA is called an essential fat, which is true. You need some. But it’s found in almost all foods — including whole foods, but especially processed foods and spices — so there’s virtually no way for you to become deficient.
In all likelihood, you’re getting far more than your body needs, and in excess, LA creates free radicals that cause oxidative stress and damage your DNA, cell membranes, and mitochondria. In this way, they contribute to chronic degenerative diseases of all kinds and premature aging.
The best way to ensure your LA intake is within the safe range is to use a nutritional calculator such as chronometer. Ideally, it’s best to enter your foods for the day before you actually eat them. The reason for this is quite simple: it’s impossible to delete the food once you’ve already eaten it, but you can easily eliminate it from your menu if you find something is pushing you past the ideal limit.
