How To Get All Fish Oil Benefits
What Really Works
Is it possible that fat has benefits?...I was for decades in a low fat diet. Besides tasting good, fats were always bad, as long as I can remember. How can it be now any good?, much less healing?
Well, stay tuned. You will discover on this page the benefits of fish oil, the reasons behind the statement that there are good and healing fats,
the different reactions our cells have to omega 3 and omega 6, the 55 omega 3 benefits discovered up to date, and the dietary changes needed to facilitate all those benefits.
The Hard Facts
Let’s start, right from the beginning, stating a basic fact: in order to get all Omega 3 Fish oil benefits you have to make several changes in your life. You not only have to take the fish oil in the amounts and quality desired, but you have to make two major life style changes.
By the way, life style changes are one of the most difficult things to accomplish in life, because they are habits. Habits can make or destroy us. The first step in the direction, to establish a good habit, is to be conscious of the consequences the old habit is producing. Then, we can start the fight with ourselves in order to acquire the new desired habit.
Easier said than done, but we have to try. We must keep trying and failing, so we can save our conscience and our life in the process. This is a battle nobody can do for us. It’s our own fight.
Now back to the changes we have to make in order to get all the benefits. Without making these changes you would get some, not all, of the advantages. I said that we have to do two things: Exercise every day and change our diet.
The Bad News
I know this sounds like torture to many people but it can literally save your life. If we want to bring a sense of balance to our life, (by this I mean psychological and physical balance), we should start by doing
exercise very day
What can be accomplished by that? Our worst enemy is insulin. By exercising at a high intensity- (according to your condition) - for 30 minutes a day, your body starts bringing your hormones into balance. This is very important because the hormone that most damages our system most is insulin.
Insulin, or high insulin, has many negative consequences, but basically, it accelerates aging, makes us fat, increases the spread of tumor cells, brings inflammation, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, etc. All the things we don’t want.
By exercising every day, for 20 – 30 minutes, at a high level of intensity, we bring insulin back to acceptable levels, and we normalize our aging, as well as our blood pressure, triglycerides, inflammation, etc.
That’s not bad for something so simple and free. But many people would rather die on their couches.
Somebody once said that if the benefits of exercise could be synthesized in a pill, people would form endless lines in front of pharmacies, to pay for it.. But since it is free, nobody cares…. Do you?.
Somebody else said: most people are not healthy enough to not exercise.
I don’t want to talk here about the psychological balance that exercise will bring to your life after a half hour of exercise, every day. For more information, see my page Benefits of Exercise
More Bad News
I have a natural tendency to love good quality food in large quantities. I don’t want to call myself a glutton, an overeater, maybe voracious?. ..Anyhow, when somebody talks of dieting, changing habits and all the like, I also have the tendency to run...... I don’t want to hear about restrictions because they imply a lot of suffering.
New eating habits? What could be more awful?. Well, I am here to tell you that you are right, if you agree with some of the above. I would be doing the same thing.
Yes, I am here to tell you the hard truth. We have to change what we eat, otherwise we won’t get all fish oil benefits we want for our health.
We have to bring back the balance between the omega 6 and omega 3 ratio by drastically reducing the amounts of omega 6 (that is, all grains, cereals and grain oils), and increase the omega 3 levels by taking fish oil.- Sorry, no eating actual fish because there is too much mercury in fish.
If you are overweight, have high blood pressure or diabetes you better stop eating ALL grains. I know, it sounds terrible. It couldn’t be worse, but it’s the truth. As soon as you begin avoiding all grains and exercising, your insulin will come drastically down, you will feel 100% better and you won’t want to go back to your old ways.
You’ll lose weight immediately, without the pain and suffering of dieting because you are NOT dieting. You are changing the foods you eat. You can eat until you’re full and, not be hungry. .. You can eat meats, good fats (see my page on page Good Source Of Fat), vegetables, fruits, nuts and dairy. That is the good news: you will feel no hunger.
That said , lets get to the purpose of this page.
