dont forget to eat your fat, but make it the right sort.

Basically essentials fats assist in metabolising the bad fats, amongst other things.

a 40/40/20 breakdown wont cut it if your 20gs of fat comesfrom Burger King

So what should one do??

Eat low fat food and then get some of this stuff in??

You can get EFAs from clean foods...doesn't have to be from flax.

Flaxseed oil is a polyunsaturated oil essential for well being known for its high content of essential fatty acid (Linolenic) aka - omega 3 which is generally found in fish.

In its edible form its made from organically grown small reddish/brown or golden seeds - an alternative for Vegan's such as myself....

Deficiency can lead to fatigue, arthiritis, allergies, eczema, acne, depression, behavioural disorders....just to name a few....

Enjoy !
