Natural Fats Provide Healthy Flavor
This fact is essential if you want to become lean-for-life with boundless energy. “Fat-free” is food industry code meaning that sugar has been added to replace the flavor lost by removing the fat. [As] with egg whites, you find that by themselves they are tasteless, but by adding the yolk they become delicious. The fat marbling in the steak is what makes it “prime” and tasty. Why do you think the highly marbled Japanese Kobe beef is so delicious?! Cheese is loaded with flavor because of its high fat content. Take out the fat and you are left with tasteless “no-fat cheese”. (How this product can legally be called cheese escapes me!)
Natural fats come in many varieties. There are saturated fats like those found in butter and coconut oil. There are monounsaturated fats like those found in olive oil. And there are polyunsaturated fats like those found in sunflower oil, evening primrose oil, canola oil, and flax oil. There are only two particular types of fat that the body CAN’T MAKE, called parent omega-6 and parent omega-3. They are called the healthy essential oils, meaning that your body can’t make them on its own; we must get them on a regular basis from foods.
Much of my research focuses on these Parent Essential Oils, which I term “PEOs”. Because so many foods have been adulterated and had their nutrients destroyed through food processing, many people choose a supplement to obtain these unadulterated essential fats. PEOs play an essential role in the “24-Hour Diet”.
