It's a dance of balance for me.  Too much fat bogs down my liver.  Too little fat (or the wrong kind) and my joints begin to ache all the time and my skin becomes too dry.

At this time, my system is to get a small, regular amount of several kinds of beneficial fats.

Daily:  
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 to 2 tsp ghee
1 tsp flax oil
1 cod liver oil capsule

Plus, fresh cold-water fatty fish and chia seeds eaten regularly.

This keeps my weight normal, my moods even, skin soft and clear and joints feeling comfortable.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

I also have joint pain if I don't drink enough water/tea. I have heard that the joint fluid can get dehydrated as well as the rest of the body and that causes joint pain.


That sounds reasonable to me. If the body was short of water it could draw water out of the joints without them becoming dysfunctional. I have no idea how fats could have much effect on the joints though someone else may have an explanatiion.

Omega 3 fats are anti-inflammatory, therefore reduce the tendency for swollen, painful joints.
Omega 6's are inflammatory fatty acids, and too much of them can increase painful joints.

So it's not just fat, but the right kind and right amount that helps.

fat intake is not my isssue- fat on my belly is.. ..LOW fat is just a faster way to: SUGAR/diabetes/carb issues.. bunk.. hype, and not worth it..

fresh food is king!.. in season and cooked just al dente..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I think I may have learned something reading these tonight.  I have very dry skin, in many places on my body, so I assume I need more EVOO, and ghee.  I have to admit, I haven't eaten ghee,in a long time, and have 1T olive oil a few times a week.  Do you think a person who is heavier then most people, and have more skin to take care of, need extra portions, or the same as recommended?  Thanks

That doesn't seem like a whole lot for a B.  Maybe that's a nonnie thing.  But are you eating beef and lamb and red meats on a regular basis?  Eggs?  Cheese?  I guess we all are different.  FOR SURE!  My daughter who is 6 seems to need a LOT more than that and I figured most B's do.  My Mom really likes to load on the evoo or ghee when she cooks.  I don't usually even eat what she makes because of that.  She is a little overweight, but seeins that she's a B also, she probalby needs more than I do.

I never tried low fat / high protein, but I think I'd have trouble staying on it for more than two weeks.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.
