INSIDE THE EPISODE

You’ve likely heard that polyunsaturated fats (omega-3’s and omega-6’s) are essential for health, but what you might now know is that the balance between them is equally as important. 

In fact, over the last few decades our intake of the omega-6 fatty acid, linoleic acid (yes, the one found in seed oils) has increased dramatically while our intake of omega-3’s has dwindled. 

Which means most Americans today - have a very imbalanced omega ratio.

According to this week’s podcast expert, author and zoologist, Dr. Anthony Hulbert, who has been studying the omega balance for decades, this is likely one reason rates of inflammation, heart disease, obesity and mental health issues are on the rise. 

His book was one of my all-time favorites and I highly, highly recommend you tune in now to learn more about the surprising and well-documented effects of this widespread imbalance and what you can do to improve yours! Here are some of my favorite takeaways:

One major oversight in America’s dietary guidelines

  • The different roles, health benefits and effects of omega-3’s and omega-6’s
  • Why animal fats are high in monounsaturated and saturated fats
  • The sources of omega-6’s and 3’s
  • The problem with omega-3 research
  • The link between omega-6’s and insulin resistance
  • The type of high-fat diets that makes rodents gain weight (and the type that doesn’t)
  • 3 ways too many omega-6’s cause weight gain
  • The link between omega-3’s and mental health
  • Why what meat ate matters
  • And so much more!

Please take the time to share this important information with everyone you know and love.
