Essential Fatty Acids
Two of these important fats are the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
Some of the benefits of the omega-3 fatty acids are
- Reducing the risk of heart disease
- Promoting healthy cell membranes
- Help in controlling inflammation in our bodies
- Boosting the immune system
- And help regulate our metabolism
The omega-6 fatty acids help our blood clot by making it more “sticky.”
Problems occur when we have too much omega-6 fatty acids in our blood relative to the amount of omega-3 fatty
acids. Out blood then becomes too “sticky”, which can lead to a higher risk of heart attacks and strokes.
It is recommended that we have in our diet a ratio of 4 parts of omega-3 to 1 part of omega-6 essential fatty
acids. Unfortunately, the typical American diet has a ratio of 20 parts of omega-6 to 1 part of omega-3 fatty
acids. This is because processed foods such as cereals, oils and margarine are primarily omega-6 fatty acids. Not
only that, but ranchers feed livestock omega-6 rich feeds.
Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in cold water fish, flax seed, walnuts, canola oil and many vegetables like
cauliflower, broccoli, squash, spinach and cabbage. Grass fed livestock also have a higher concentration of omega-3
fatty acids than corn fed livestock.
So, try eating more of these foods to increase your consumption of omega-3 essential fatty acids. If you
don’t like fish, remember that a handful of walnuts is equivalent to eating 3.5 ounces of salmon as far as omega-3
content is concerned. You can also sprinkle ground flax seed on your oatmeal to get a good dose of omega-3’s.
Recent research has shown that omega-3 fatty acids also help curb appetite. Other studies have also indicated
that omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce our
risk of becoming obese and regulate our metabolism. Eating more food sources of omega-3 fatty acids, therefore, may
help us burn more tummy of visceral fat.
This is another way to develop lean abs.
So, when it comes to essential fatty acids, it is best to reduce your consumption of omega-6 fatty acids and eat
more food with omega-3 fatty acids. You will not only improve your health, but also be able to burn more tummy fat
and develop those six pack abs.
Try eating less processed foods, and eat more unprocessed fruits and vegetables, cold water fish, ground flax
seed, walnuts and grass fed livestock.
