How to Balance Your Fats
Patients at Optimum Function and people in general know that getting enough omega-3 fats is extremely important. What many people do not realize is that we also need omega-6 and even omega-9 fats. The key is a healthy balance. This article is about how to improve you omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. In general processed foods are laden with omega-6 fats and therefore the balance between the 2 has been skewed. It has been estimated that the average person consumes between 10-30 times more omega-6 fats than omega-3’s. One of the most important things to do when trying to balance fat intake is eat more vegetables and fruits. While they contain only small amounts of fat, the omega ratios are optimal.
I wrote an article for an upcoming lecture I am going to give called Omega Fats: Clearing up the details and balancing Omega 6 and Omega 3 Fats. Click on the following link for the article: Portland, Oregon Nutrition – Omega Fats: Clearing up the details and balancing omega-6 and omega-3 fats.
