fat-burn-foodsIn addition to the article below, I would like to announce that I am providing to my clients a wonderful weight loss protein shake made from the purest source of whey protein derived from organic cattle in New Zealand.  The product is from Isagenix, Inc. and the shake is called IsaLean in chocolate or vanilla.  The product is high in protein and all the right nutrients; minerals and amino acids in a ratio perfectly put together.  Perfect for a one or two meal a day replacement drink.  Along with the shake is a total cellular body cleanse powder called Cleanse for Life which is an everyday for life cellular cleanse, ridding your body of free radicals and toxins without digestive effects.  I am seeing great results with these products in my clients and am using it myself.  For more information on this product contact me at: 248-752-0109 anytime.

Why do Eskimos of Alaska (the Yup’ik tribe) NOT have the usual diseases linked to excess body fat that we American Have?  Even though they eat 20 times more fatty fish than other Americans, it turns out that the makeup of their diet provides unusual protection against diabetes and heart disease.

Those Eskimos are getting high levels of Omega-3 fats DHA and EPA from the salmon and sardines they consume.  The Omega-3′s block rises in levels of fatty triglycerides and inflammatory C-Reactive Protein (heart damage/disease indicator available by blood test).

You can up your reserves of Omega 3′s too by eating more of the following:

* Omega-3 fatty acid content and source varies by brand; be sure to read labels carefully or contact the manufacturer.
mg = milligrams (1,000 mg is equal to 1 gram and about 28 grams are in one ounce)
ALA = alpha-linolenic acid
EPA = eicosapentaenoic acid
DHA = docosahexaenoic acid
Key Points

  • Long chain omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, are concentrated in oily fish (salmon, tuna, and mackerel) and some fortified foods now contain EPA and DHA.
  • ALA is a precursor to EPA and DHA and can also be found in foodstuffs. Flax has a significant amount of ALA and many food products have added flax flour to improve their omega-3 fatty acid content.

In addition to the foods that you choose, if you can’t get enough of the ones shown above (its hard to do), I would recommend a good Omega-3 Daily Supplement (2 caps daily or liquid form), looking out for this type of labeling information is best:
The Oil is purified in a non-chemical molecular distillation process that removes all trace amounts of heavy metals, PCBs, organochlorides, and organophosphate pesticides resulting in the safest, purest source of EPA/DHA fish oil possible.  Ensuring the greatest oxidation protection possible. Keeping the fish oil in its most natural form possible is crucial because human beings are genetically designed to ingest, digest, and absorb EPA and DHA essential fatty acids in the form they are found in nature, not in any concentrated form produced by chemical processing.
