Shifting from protein to healthy fats

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

The trick and the thing about lower carb life styles is not just eating a lot of protein, but rather shifting from protein centric to healthy fat centric eating. What I mean by that is focusing on healthy fats for your calories. My favorite fat sources are coconut oil and olive oil. I do like real organic cream, but its much more expensive. Coconut oil has an advantage, it is great for your thyroid. I like it in oatmeal and stir fries. Its good in baked things, but when you are watching your carbs, you won't be making too many of those.

    I also consider nuts and avocado to fit into the same category as healthful fats.

    I use coconut oil and olive oil mostly. I do make my own french fries and cook them in peanut oil. But I have few of them. Mostly for my son who eats them. I also use real butter which has no trans fats and additives like many Oleo spreads. I am going for healthy--not just calorie. If it is a healthy calorie then it is better for you.

    I don't set out to eat fat but I'm not afraid of it either. I get more than enough.
