” Fuck around and find out “ A new spin on Dry July
I read a shit ton of books on nutritional sciences , hormone health , movement sciences, and much more. You could say I'm obsessed with anything to do with what makes us tick along.
Speaking of ticking along,I also really fucken love wine as maladaptive as it is , raised in a winery one might say it's in my blood. So to be honest with you as much as I love the idea of a dry July I will be honest it is not bloody happening. Being the weird chemistry health nerd that I am , I wanted to create a new spin on dry July while still enjoying my glass of wine with dinner from time to time.
After reading a very very good book by Catherine Shanahan M.D – DEEP NUTRITION, I became acutely aware of how BAD , Industrial Fats are for you , between the incredibly imbalanced omega -6 Fatty acids , unhealthy processing methods, lack of nutritional value, and the endless list off associated health risks I had a penny drop moment.
Let us quit shit oils for 30 days and see what happens ???
So what are the shit oils and what do they do ?
1 – Imbalance of Omega – 6 Fatty Acids. Vegetable oils, such as soybean, corn, and sunflower are rich in omega-6 fatty acids while our bodies need a balance of both omega-6 and 3 fats , the Western diet often tilts more on the side of 6 . The imbalance can lead to chronic inflammation, which has been linked to various health problems such as cardiovascular issues.
2 – Unhealthy Processing. The manufacturing process of veg oils involves high heat , solvents, and chemicals.These processes damage the oils promoting oxidation and the formation of trans fats and free radicals.Trans fats are really SHIT because they will raise the cholesterol levels your doctor gives you a hard time about, while the free radicals can cause cellular damage and more inflammation = blocked up and Puffy
3 – Lack of nutritional value. Compared to whole foods,veg oils provide next to no nutritional value, but are incredibly calorie dense lacking in any vitamins minerals, or fiber…
4 – Potential Health Risks. They make you fat …. Give you cellulite, and increase the risk of heart disease, insulin resistance, and even some cancers, if your trying to get pregnant it's shown to have adverse effects on fertility, and can mess around with your sex hormones.
Not all fats will fuck you up tho , though extra virgin olive oil , avo oil ( not heated ) coconut oil, good butter, and animal fats are all good, have far lower Omega -6 Content higher levels of beneficial monounsaturated fats, and undergo far less processing, offer favorable fatty acid profiles and health benefits with a glass of red wine full of antioxidants.
So it's a fuck around and Finds out 30 days if your keen, it won’t cost you anything other than your time and a keen eye on your food labels.
