Again and again you hear about good or bad fats. Healthy and unhealthy. But where is the difference, what makes a fat healthy and what does not. Here are 7 great reasons why plant fat is healthy for you.
1. NO ANIMAL FATS
The vegetable fats are no animal fats, is obvious. But what makes the difference?
All animal fats are saturated fat. The human body does not need these. Saturated fats are solid at room temperature. Think of butter or lard.
Vegetable fats, on the other hand, are predominantly unsatisfied. In the next point there is more information.
Animal fats occur in:
All of these products contain a lot of saturated fat.
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH ANIMAL FAT?
Animal products, especially the fats, make you ill. How do you feel after a rich, fatty lunch, with lots of meat and cheese. Probably very sluggish and tired. This is normal or? The body needs all the blood and energy for digestion. At least that’s what everyone says.
What actually happened is that your blood just flows extremely slowly. It clumps right. The fat goes straight into the blood. It sticks and clogs the arteries. Also in your brain. This will make you tired and lethargic.
This is mainly due to the saturated fatty acids and omega-6.
Even otherwise animal products have no positive effect. They only hurt and make you sick.
Diabetes, for example, is very easy to cure. Forever. Without medication. You just have to leave out the animal fat. This blocks namely the insulin receptors.
Even heart attacks or strokes are thus virtually excluded. Amazing, right?
That’s why it is the most important to completely replace animal fats with herbal ones. To do something good for you and your body.
2. MORE UNSATURATED FATTY ACIDS
Unsaturated fatty acids all have a vegetable origin. There are monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. That is, one or more sites have a double bond in the molecular structure.
In contrast to saturated fatty acids, unsaturated ones are liquid at room temperature.
Some sources of unsaturated fats are:
3. PLANT FAT CONTAINS ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS
Essential fatty acids are omega-3 and omega-6. These are very important to the body in many ways.
Omega-3 and omega-6 are polyunsaturated. The position of the double bond determines whether it is omega-3 or 6.
What is the difference?
Omega-3 fatty acids have a thinning effect on blood, whereas Omega-6 has a thickening effect on blood.
Omega-3 is included in:
Kale, salads, spinach
As an important omega-3 supplier, fish oil capsules are being propagated again and again. These are not only contaminated with pollutants, but also the animal fat and the proteins are very harmful to the body.
Important is the processing of vegetable fats and oils. They must be produced gently and cold.
In high heat, many vegetable fat to trans fat. These are proven to be carcinogenic.
Therefore, it is also bad if you use olive oil for searing.
4. PLANTS FATS ARE INFLAMMATORY
In contrast to animal fats, vegetable fats are anti-inflammatory.
When taking up animal fats, the arteries ignite. As with acne, pimples develop in the veins, which gradually burst and block the arteries.
The result is heart attacks and strokes.
Did you know, real carnivores like lions, hyenas or cats have a much shorter digestive tract.
Also, their stomach acid is 100 to 1000 times stronger than ours. As a result, the saturated fats do not get into their blood. That’s why true carnivores do not die of heart attacks or strokes.
We humans already.
It’s easy to avoid eating any animal products. Of course that does not mean that you only feed on fat. Of course, there are people who do just that, mostly to feed on fat. Also with purely vegetable nutrition.
The so-called low-carb diet, or paleo, aims to replace carbs with fat.
That is very unhealthy. It also causes clogging of the arteries and is absolutely toxic to the body.
The crowd does it. 20 – 30 g fat a day is enough.
5. GOOD FOR THE CHOLESTEROL MIRROR
Cholesterol is solely in animal products. The easiest way to lower and normalize cholesterol is to completely eliminate animal products.
Satten butter and lard prefer to resort to herbal alternatives. These contain no cholesterol and therefore have a positive effect on the cholesterol level.
Saturated fatty acids raise cholesterol levels and are found mainly in animal products.
The only exception is the coconut. However, this is very healthy and can be eaten safely.
Also Interesting Is A Carbohydrate And Sugar Free Diet Healthy?
Animal products are responsible for myocardial infarction and just about all civilization diseases. In addition, agriculture and factory farming contribute significantly to climate change, deforestation and pollution.
6. PROTECT THE HEART CIRCUIT SYSTEM
Here too, the crowd does it. 20 – 30 g fat per day is enough. Also too much vegetable fat leads to health problems and also acne.
Incidentally, acne is also very easy to heal in the teenage years. By consistently omitting animal fats.
Because vegetable fats contain essential fatty acids, they have a positive effect on the cardiovascular system.
Of course, it only brings something if you do without animal products.
You can imagine it, your body is a fast sports car, super fast and powerful. Of course, you would only fuel this car with the best super gasoline.
But what do people do, they try to refuel heavy oil for container ships and wonder why the engine is not running. Why everything stops. And instead of refueling the right fuel, they wipe the windows, change the tires and clean the exhaust.
Does it make sense? Why go this way? Would not it be easy to refuel the right petrol?
In our case, that means a purely herbal diet. Carbohydrates, so sugar is our gas. Animal products are like heavy fuel for us. They make you sick and nothing works anymore.
That’s why the vegetable fats protect our cardiovascular system alone, because they contain no cholesterol and no animal proteins.
7. MANY VITAMINS
In addition to the essential fatty acids, many vegetable oils also contain important vitamins. Wheat germ oil, for example, has a very high vitamin A, E and D content.
In general, a balanced, all-vegetable diet can absorb all the vitamins, nutrients and essential fatty acids your body needs.
In conclusion, the less fat the better. Not more than 20 – 30 g per day. The most important thing is no animal products. That puts you on the safe side. There are several books and movies that I can warmly recommend to you. The most important is “The High Carb Diet” by Dr. Ing. McDougall.
