How To Get More 'good Fats'?
0

12 posts in this topic

One of the things I'm still struggling with (and chronically struggled with, even when I ate gluten) is how and where to get more fat into my diet. Almost every potential fat source seems to also add a ton of calories, which is a bit of a deterrent. I'm trying to lose the weight I've put on over the last several months; it's obnoxious that I seem to be stuck re-learning how weight management works, as I've had that under decent control for years, now.

I've also (accidentally) trained myself to actively prefer the taste of lower fat foods. So, for example, fat free yogurt tastes better to me than low fat yogurt (I haven't noticed milk itself is a problem for me).

Any source material on all the "good fat" stuff folks are quoting? Any info (and source material) on how to know how much of what kind of fat you need? Any product reccommendations?

Olive oil, coconut oil (contrary to popular wisdom), avocados, eggs, for starters.

I'll have to try an avacado at some point.

Right now I seem to react badly to eggs (they were my first choice for a quick source of fat/iron/protien); I'm not sure if this is something that will be permanent but I'm not eager to test it anytime soon. =(

I'm the opposite, i can't handle low fat stuff.

Peanut butter maybe? Nuts?

Walnuts and olive oil are in my daily food plan. Fatty fish like salmon is also a good source , Not my personal fave but it works.

Peanut butter I tend to go wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy over board on so I can not even have it in the house :rolleyes:because I will eat the whole jar :blink:

That's my worry not only with peanut butter, but also with things like nuts where you're supposed to just have a handful. I have the vague hope that I might get a little better about self-control when I've gotten used to a firmer connection between food and satiety, but even if that's going to happen, it won't happen immediately, or even probably soon.

nuts, seeds, avocados, olive/coconut/nut oils are all good choices. cook your veggies with some oil (especially good if roasting in the oven). add sesame seeds to your salads. and walnuts to your yogurt. make homemade granola with seeds/nuts/coconut oil.

Now, if only I could find an easily-accessible and cheap nut brand that didn't say the nuts come from a facility that processes wheat. More ressearch, I suppose.

EDIT: Planter's. :)

As an update:  Still looking into additional sources of fat (and still figuring the weight thing out), but adding nuts into my diet helped my skin quickly and dramatically (it was red/dry/clearly not healthy), and didn't seem to exacerbate the weight issue as I had feared it would.  Had to tweak my skincare regimen a little bit (I'd dialed it back a bit due to dry winter air, but had to step it up again when I started, unsurprisingly, getting some acne), but definitely overall a huuuuuge improvement.

I have trouble with fats too because a lot of the foods that I prefer to eat are low in fat.  Like vegetables.  Dieticians would tell me to add margarine to my veggies.  And I'd be like...  Uh...  No!

 

I do try to eat some olives, seeds or nuts every day.  I dislike dressing on my salad but if I am eating baby carrots, I will sometimes dip them in a little really good olive oil.  I also cook with olive oil when I can.  Or coconut oil.

 

I can no longer eat dairy but when I did, I switched to the full fat stuff.

    • Gluten free backing food
      I just went back & checked the ingredients in those gluten-free MRE's. It says modified food starch & doesn't specify from what so if I were you I would certainly check with the company & have them clarify that to your satisfaction.
    • Blood sugar, hunger, celiac
      So I have celiac disease and also Hashimoto's thyroiditis (but not on meds because it's apparently "not bad enough" yet...). When I was still on gluten, I had chronically high cortisol and also high blood sugar and insulin. And when these were high (cortisol, blood sugar, insulin) I had constant hunger. Like I was starving all the time, and eating didnt help and often actually made me hungrier. It was a pretty horrible time, and no one even thought to test my blood sugar for a long time because I was young (21/22), thin (bmi 19), and have ZERO family history of diabetes. When I got off the gluten, cortisol came down over time, blood sugar improved some but still not ideal. (Getting glutened raises these again) For further blood sugar support, I took chromium and cinnamon and cut down on carbs (I'm not super low carb though). A few months ago I started taking berberine and that's helped a lot. My recent blood tests showed that my fasting blood sugar was 4.7 and my A1c was 5.6. My doctor was pleased. However, what I don't get is that I still have hunger issues at times. I mean, it has improved a ton since the worst times. I do have meals where I feel satisfied. But other times I feel like I haven't eaten very much at all after a meal. I thought when I got my blood sugar into the normal range I wouldn't have to think about this anymore, i would just eat, feel satisfied, not start feeling hungry until at least a few hours later, etc.It doesn't even seem to correlate to whether the meal is higher carb or not.
    • Gluten free backing food
      This is not going to be easy for you. You're going to have to change the foods in the pack out from time to time rather than just packing it & leaving it for years. I'm thinking weight is a factor too. I have a few suggestions..... http://www.walmart.com/ip/13398018?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227010019313&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=40886859272&wl4=&wl5=pla&wl6=78817797152&veh=sem      Tuna in pouches.

    • What does this all mean?
      It's terrible that you are left hanging like this! I'm so sorry. Can you get to the doctors office & get a copy of the of the test results? If you can, then you could post them here & we have people who can interpret them for you.
