Fats for Blue Monday

Posted: January 16, 2017

As it’s Blue Monday, it seems like a good moment to mention that, according to US navy psychiatrist Joseph Hibbeln, a look at the studies shows that the murder, depression and suicide rates of countries can be predicted by the population’s intake of seafood, thanks to the omega-3 fats seafood provides. These help us create serotonin, the pleasure-feeling brain chemical we all need to feel ‘right.’

There is a lot of confusion about the fats we need and the fats we don’t need, and I have yet to meet anyone other than someone who has been through nutrition college who really knows what to eat and what to avoid. I feel this important subject should be taught in school, since we need it for good health. However, it isn’t, so here are my three resources on the subject:

My short FATS VLOG in which I aim to outline all the basics you need to know:

An article, Chewing the Fat, which I wrote for the Natural Health Federation which takes you through the good, bad, and ugly fats (so, a more detailed version of the vlog, and printoffable).

And finally, my book, The Stacking Plan, has a chapter, Fats Week, which gives detailed information on good fats and how to add them in, and what to avoid.
