(Q) Okay so we say don't eat those starchy carbohydrates. What is it that you can eat?
(A) The energy source we want our bodies to rely on is fat. Our diet is much higher in fat than most diets prescribed today. Unfortunately, many people have a media ― or medical-induced fear of fat. This fear is misguided because society currently lumps fat into one dangerous category without looking at fats for their individual properties. While we are working on spreading the word, it is not yet common knowledge that certain fats in the right amount are good for you.
The fat we recommend you eat differs qualitatively from the usual fare of red meats, cheeses, and desserts. Those foods usually contain damaged or saturated fats. We recommend only what we consider “good” fats.
Remember that fat has always been and always will be essential for life. We need fat to nourish our immune system, nervous system, hormonal system, for skin integrity, to control inflammatory processes and don't forget, to burn for energy.
- Some examples of “good” fats include: raw nuts and seeds such as almonds, walnuts, macadamia, olives and olive oil, flax oil and cod liver oil, coconut oil, ghee.
