7. Add More Fibre – Nuts
Include Some Nuts and
Nuts and seeds are low-carb favourites, and they have a good amount of fibre in them. They also have protein and a high amount of essential omega 3 fatty acids if you pick the right ones.
Walnuts, flax seed, chia seeds, beechnuts, pecans, and pine nuts all have a good amount of essential fatty acids (EFAs).
Add them to your salads, your protein shakes, or make your own nut butters.
A small handful makes a great snack.
Eat Clean, Feel Great
Improve your health by adding more Essential Fatty Acids.
The hint is in the name – essential – so you know you must eat them, as your body can’t make them for you. So, what are they?
You will find them in oily fish, nuts, seeds and of course in bottles at your supplement store.
I think this is the easiest way to improve your health. If you google fish oils and almost any disease you can think of, you will see study after study showing improvements in symptoms and apparent cures.
In terms of fat loss I know that if you fake an appropriate daily dose you will reduce your own body fat stores. Skin and digestive tracks will be soothed as will joint inflammation.
But, which fish oil should you choose? Cod liver oil is better than no oil, Fish oil better than liver oil, Krill oil better still.
If your fish oil capsules give you fishy burps, or are very cheap – consider how they are made and where the fish have come from. You may discover that they are contaminated with growth hormone, heavy metals and more.
Ideally you want oils from fish caught in the open ocean, preferably a cold ocean. So, focus on quality and value rather just on cost.
