Omega 3 Fatty Acids and Weight Loss
This post is in continuation of my previous post What are fattening foods. In which I talked on how we can identify fattening foods as well as how can we avoid constipation. This time I will talk particularly about natural unprocessed fats that we should include in our daily diet. As these fats help us burn fat and keep our gastronomical tract greasy to aid good bowel movement.
Fat has an undeserved reputation as a diet food that is bad for weight loss and health. True, Trans Fats are bad. I also agree that all fats are calorie-dense (9 calories per gram), BUT calorie-counting is not the decisive factor: how easily the calories are burned is more crucial. What are those fats?
Omega 3 Essential Fatty acids, the fats that are found in polyunsaturated fats, help to regulate the body’s blood sugar levels, which helps keep hunger at bay. It has ALA(alpha linolenic acid) that helps to increase the metabolic processes and thus helps fat burning. Omega 3 intake is too good for diabetics, heart patients, cancer patients, people with skin diseases and obese.
We all should include Omega 3 intake in our diets!
1. Soak walnuts in an air tight container and keep it in the refrigerator and eat them next day.
2. Eat a spoon of flaxseeds daily like eat it at any cost. Just do not gulp it, rather munch it. If we eat walnuts and flax seeds religiously. We will soon observe changes in our skin and waist size!
3. Eat a lot of green leafy vegetables. Winters are here. Literally devour those Palak(spinach), methi(fenugreek), bathua, sarso(musturd leaves), raddish leaves. Aloo methi, palak paneer, sarso ka saag. Eat them all this winter esp if you want to heal your skin, ease your constipation and manage your weight.
Happy Winters 🙂 Cheers!
