APB: Stop Using Vegetable Oils!

A pantry cleanout is an important order of business when you embark upon a keto diet and the first items to hit the trash should be those junky vegetable oils – especially if they come in a spray-can. These are polyunsaturated fats found in corn, canola, cottonseed and soy, and they’re one of the biggest culprits in the ever-declining health of millions. We call them “bad fats.” Just look at how these fats oxidize easily. In other words: they go rancid in a short period of time. That rancid state then translates to poorly functioning fats inside your very cells.
Bad fats impede how well your body functions in every respect: they interfere with your hormonal ability to regulate cravings, which in turn, effects your body’s efficiency. As a result, you feel weak and low on energy. This degradation of bodily systems leads to systemic inflammation that causes a vicious cycle in which you crave more of these bad fats, sugars, and caffeine to make it through the day. When our bodies are inefficiently creating energy, they need these “quick-hit compounds” to provide a burst of energy, no matter how “dirty” the fuel source.
However, going cold-turkey can be tough. A better approach is to take time easing into the GoodFats lifestyle. Go slowly and wean yourself off of processed or packaged foods. Choose one or two meals a day to eat high on healthy fats and keto meals in order to re-train your body to recognize a cleaner, more sustainable fuel source.
We’re here along your keto journey to provide information, tips, and products that help you transform your heath from sluggish to supreme.
