Good Fat

It’s a food lover’s dream, that somewhere out there is a diet that promotes healthy weight loss without requiring a ton of willpower.

Well, the laws of physics says that you can’t get around needing to take in fewer calories than you burn if you want to lose weight.

But I’m watching this study on good fat. Appetite is a complicated thing, occurring more in the brain than in the stomach. Something is wrong with the American diet. Individuals make bad choices, for sure. But an entire population doesn’t get fatter by coincidence.

People with Type II diabetes are suffering the worst effects of an imbalance that affects many of us who just struggle with our weight. We’re not all built to be slim, but there’s fat and fit, vs fat and tired and depressed.

Easier said than done, of course. I might check out these supplements, but without a balanced diet they won’t do anything but lighten my wallet. And of course, a healthy diet is key.

  1. You don’t have to take Safflower oil in supplements; you can buy it like olive oil and use it for cooking and baking. I use a brand called “Hollywood” (strangely enough)which seems to work well and taste good.

  2. I looked up CLA, and there’s not enough evidence to make it sound like a good bet. Safflower oil, on the other hand, is safe.
