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.

re: PB specifically: It's a shame Jif to Go isn't gluten-free.

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.

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
