FATS: DOs & DON'Ts

Fats are necessary for healthy brain functions and are the building block for hormones, therefore for ovulation! They keep the body warm, skin and arteries supple and insulate nerve cells. 

DOs:

 

  • Non essential fats (founded in animals, eggs, butter, cheese) - try to use them sparingly

 

  • Non essential Monosaturated fats such as olive and peanut oil - try to use them moderately 

 

  • Essential Polyunsaturated fats - these are necessary for building healthy hormones and prostaglandins, which regulate hormones and aid fertility. These are healthy fats and they are fundamental for regulating your cycle, for getting pregnant and for the development of your baby. 

They can be found in:

Nuts - almonds, brazils, cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts

Seeds - pumpkin, sesame, sunflower, flaxseeds

Oily fish - mackerel, salmon, sardines, herrings

 

A lack of essential fatty acids may be seen in:

- dry skin and cracked heels and fingertips

- dry eyes

- brittle nails

- loss of hair/dandruff

- frequent infection and poor wound healing

- poor memory

- PMS/ breast pain/ infertility

- excessive thirst

- craving

- difficulty to lose weight

DON'Ts:

 

  • Saturated fats (found  in red meat and diary) produce hormones which are inflammatory, causing swelling and pain and often can be linked to endometriosis, period pain.

  • Hydrogenated (trans) fats (such as margarine): AVOID! These are highly processed fats that are more similar to plastic rather than food!

  • Fat free products - AVOID! In order to improve the taste, these kind of products often contain a lot of artificial sweeteners, which are like poisons for the body!
