Essential fats for happy hormones

Making Happy Hormones

Imagine eating a delicious apple pie mixed with absolute love and care, made with the very highest quality ingredients and stuffed with an abundance of beautiful fresh apples? How pleasurable would that be? How happy would you be?

But if the apples weren’t there, or were old and past their ‘use by date’, or if the wrong balance of ingredients used, would that apple pie taste as good? Would you be as happy? You’d possibly feel disappointed and upset, maybe even angry and frustrated that it didn’t make you feel as expected.

Using the very best, freshest ingredients in the right proportions definitely increases the pleasure potential of the experience wouldn’t you agree?

Your hormones are a little like that apple pie. You need to provide the raw ingredients of the very best quality, and in the right balance for maximum enjoyment and experience the highest happiness quotient!

The Raw Ingredients For Happy Hormones

It’s really simple, you need to increase the Omega 3 fats in your diet and reduce the intake of Omega 6 fats.

Omega 3’s are found in:

  • (non farmed) oily fish, eg salmon, mackerel, sardines, trout, halibut, herring
  • nuts and seeds, particularly flax and chia seeds and walnuts
  • grass fed cattle and produce
  • organic eggs
  • beans (various), including edamame beans
  • and even Brussels sprouts, kale, mint, parsley, spinach, watercress, mint and basil!

All ingredients that aren’t commonly eaten in abundance in most peoples’ diet.

Note: These fats should never be avoided because you believe them to be high in calories and will contribute towards weight gain. These fats, in the right balance, are used for metabolic purposes so necessary to make those happy hormones, feed the brain, and create healthy cell membranes.

Omega 6 fats are found in excess in :

  • Vegetable oils, especially sunflower and canola oil
  • Margarine
  • Any and all processed foods containing polyunsaturated fats (check the label).

This list may not seem very long, but if you consider the range of processed foods on the supermarket shelves, nearly all will contain these fats.

You should also be aware that when these fats are damaged they may lead to a toxic build up which actually disrupts hormones.

Bottom Line:

Balance your hormones, improve your mood and boost your metabolism by eating fresh foods in the list above, include produce from the sea at least twice a week and avoid all processed foods on the supermarket shelves. Seemples!

Within YourNewLifePlan Vibrant Life membership health programmes I’ll be giving a much more comprehensive structure and training around the importance of Omega 3 fatty acids to ensure you appreciate the benefits to your hormones and health of body and mind.

Be Happy!
