The foods we eat can either help or hinder our metabolisms.
Bodies are made to run on fat, not sugar.
Our cell membranes rely on Omega 6 fatty acids. Omega 6 fatty acids helps create a smooth, sturdy boundary to help protect against bacteria, fungus, and other damage.
It is important to make sure that the Omega Gs consumed is not damaged.
As the body won't be able to use it.
It's important to avoid vegetable oils, such as canola, soybean, cottonseed and any hydrogenated oils as that could be damaging and toxic to the system.
Eating the right kind of fat reduce chronic inflammation and weight gain, but can also supercharge your metabolism.
Hemp seed oil, nuts, seeds of pumpkin, sunflower & flax, sesame oil, and pine nut oil are great sources.
It's always best to get as much as possible from our food sources.
The secretion of bile from the gallbladder breaks down fat as well.
That's why restoring the gallbladder is a nice idea.
With age, more toxins build up in the bile.
Processed foods, high blood sugars, high levels of estrogens and stress all decrease the quality of bile.
Poor quality bile means that the fats in our digestive system are not being broken down properly.
Use bile salts, drink lemon & water, and load up on bitter foods as that can help regulate the metabolism.
Proper sleep is important in regulating glucose absorption, leptin secretion and is correlated with increased risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes.
