The explosion of health information and nutrition education programs has led to good progress on several fronts. Deaths from heart disease have declined and, to a slight degree, so have deaths from some cancers. On average, the intake of total fat and saturated fat has decreased. Food labeling provides much more useful information now. Restaurants offer more low-fat and low-calorie options on their menus.
Cooking up heart health requires no secret ingredients. It simply means making dishes that are lower in saturated fat, cholesterol, and total fat, and reduced in sodium. And, as an extra plus, these dishes have fewer calories than those higher in fat. It means enjoying Crispy Oven-Fried Chicken, Red Hot Fusilli, Stir-Fried Beef and Potatoes, Apricot-Orange Bread, Crunchy Pumpkin Pie, and a Summer Breezes Smoothie.
Nutrition experts agree that when you lower the total fat, saturated fat, and added sugar in your diet and increase the vitamins, minerals, and fiber by eating more fruits, vegetables, and grains, you can improve your quality of life and help prevent many of the diseases that are the leading causes of death. Now that you know the goals and guidelines for healthful eating, we will provide you with the nutrition and food selection knowledge you need to put those guidelines into practice.
In contrast, if you were consuming 2,000 calories on a low-fat diet, you might not lose weight, and you might actually gain weight. The metabolic advantage is that burning fat takes more energy so you expend more calories. And if you eat fewer calories-as many Atkins people do because their appetite is usually diminished-you'll likely lose weight even faster. So it's not that calories don't count, it's just that you will burn more of them, with less hunger, when your body is operating on a fat-based metabolism.
1 Tablespoon Virgin olive oil Extra-virgin olive oil Dissolve the yeast in the warm water with the sugar. After 5 minutes stir in the salt, johnnycake meal, whole-wheat flour, and oil. Gradually add the white flour, stirring with a wooden spoon until a stiff dough has formed. Place the dough on a floured board, and knead it for several minutes, adding only enough additional flour to keep the dough from sticking. When the dough is smooth and shiny, transfer it to a bowl that has been brushed with olive oil. To prevent a skin from forming, brush the top of the dough with additional olive oil, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place, away from drafts, until doubled in bulk, 1 1 2 to 2 hours. Punch down the dough and knead once more. Let the dough rise again for about 40 minutes. Punch down the dough. If it is sticky, knead in a bit more flour. Divide into four balls. Cover the balls with plastic wrap and allow to rise at room temperature for about 45 minutes. While...
When we eat grains and legumes, rather than foods of animal origin (a more frequent source of protein in our diets), we gain additional health benefits. Whole-grain foods and legumes are rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other substances that optimize health. If that does not seem like reason enough to make the trade, grains and legumes lack the high levels of saturated fat present in foods of animal origin, which, as you will learn below, are linked to many diseases. saturated fat, which increases the risk for coronary artery disease and some forms of cancer.

Dietary fat is a source of energy, but high-fat diets, especially diets high in saturated fat, increase the risk of gaining excessive amounts of weight and of developing diabetes, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, and several types of cancer. This increased risk is the reason that health experts encourage us to reduce our intake of total and saturated fats by choosing lean cuts of red meat and poultry, removing the skin before eating poultry, and preparing the meat with a method that uses little or no additional fats choosing some fish that is high in omega-3 fatty acids and preparing it with little or no added fat
Your saturated fat should come from your animal products and you can even toss in some butter or coconut oil for cooking. Your monounsaturated fat should come from mixed nuts, olives, and olive oil. And your polyunsaturated fat should from flaxseed oil, fish oil, and mixed nuts.

11) Electric Glass Tea Kettle - To get your two cups of fat burning, antioxidant rich, cancer preventing green tea per day, you'll need a convenient way to heat the water. But this type of teakettle not only makes it convenient, it optimizes the process by shutting off when the water comes to a boil. Temperatures too hot easily scald green tea and this kettle ensures the water is just right. Just to be safe, however, let the water cool for a minute before mixing it with the tea.

I know I've produced a really heart-sinking analysis of how and why fat accumulates on your body. So, what do you do now You adjust the insulin spigot. And so far as weight loss goes, the answer lies in two entwined concepts burning fat and controlling carbohydrates, which we will explore in the upcoming chapters.
2 Cup Baby arugula washed and patted dry (packed) Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil Pat the grapefruit dry with paper towels. In a shallow dish, toss the grapefruit with the sugar. Heat a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the grapefruit and cook until the grapefruit is caramelized, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and set aside. In a mixing bowl, toss the arugula and fennel with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the caramelized grapefruit and toss well. Fan out the cured salmon in the center of each plate. Mound some of the salad in the center of each plate of salmon. Drizzle the gastrique over the entire plate. Garnish with parsley.
Most obese people become so adept at releasing insulin that their blood is never really free of it and they're never able to use up their fat stores. By primarily burning fat instead of carbohydrates, lipolysis breaks the cycle of excess insulin and resultant stored fat. So by following a fat-containing, controlled carbohydrate regimen, you bypass the process of converting large amounts of carbohydrate into glucose. When your carbohydrate intake drops low enough to induce fat burning, abnormal insulin levels return to normal-perhaps for the first time in years or decades.'-'

Muscle fibers have much the same consistency from animal to animal. Muscles do what they do in the same manner, whether that project is powering a wing or driving a lope across the meadow. Fat cells are where the differences among meat come into play. Because they're the closets of biochemistry, storing any fat-soluble matter the animal takes in, they reflect the animal's eating habits and the intestinal microbes (microscopic organisms that contribute to digestion, as well as the fungi and viruses that cause illness) that make it into its digestive tract.
Each person has a Critical Carbohydrate Level for Losing (CCLL), and if you stay below that highly individual number you will lose weight. However, if you exceed that level-even with all healthy foods-your body will not switch to burning fat as the primary source of fuel. We need a way to focus on health-promoting vitanutrients that also provide blood-sugar stability and weight loss.
The properties of meats are determined, in part, by the diet of the animals. Most of the beef on the market in North America is grain-fed, even though grass, not grain, is the natural diet of cattle. Feeding cattle grain enables producers to raise and fatten them for market more quickly than letting them browse on grass does. Grain-fed beef is tender and has more marbling than grass-fed beef, and it is preferred by most North American consumers. Grass-fed or pastured beef is usually perceived as less tender and less juicy, although it is lower in saturated fat and may have more health benefits. Its flavor is often described as beefier than that of grain-fed beef. Grass-fed beef is common in some other countries, such as the beef-eating and -producing nation of Argentina. In North America, producers of pastured beef are campaigning for more consumer recognition.
For the first few weeks, I want you to be unafraid of natural fat (butter, cream, cheese, olive oil and the fat in meats, poultry and fish), but remember to stay away from those evil trans fats, which are labeled as hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated fats. The ease of getting into deep lipolysis is based on the ratio of fat (not protein) to carbohydrate. Thus, you should strive for an adequate amount of fat during this initial period, and, in doing so, you will almost certainly find yourself experiencing the most appetite-suppressing aspects of Atkins.
After a couple of days you will find you are in control of your appetite. That's because once your body's two-day supply of glycogen (stored glucose) diminishes and you make the switch to primarily burning fat, lipolysis suppresses your appetite. Suddenly, you find yourself eating
Extra virgin olive oil 5oz good spicy Italian salami, sliced 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely sliced 1 teaspoon fennel seeds 1 bulb of fennel, halved and finely sliced, feathery tops reserved and chopped 2 14oz cans of plum tomatoes optional 1 dried chilli, crumbled sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 11b dried spaghetti or linguine 2 handfuls of stale bread crumbs optional a sprig of fresh rosemary Cook your pasta in a large pot of fast-boiling salted water until al dente (check the package for cooking time). While it's cooking I like to make pangritata (crunchy breadcrumbs), to give this dish a great texture and crunch. Just get a couple of good handfuls of coarse bread crumbs I do this by removing the crusts from some stale bread and whizzing them up in a food processor until kind of coarse. Fry the crumbs with 4 or 5 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil until they go crispy. Sometimes I throw in some rosemary sprigs as well to give extra flavor. When your pasta is...
Simply dice all ingredients and place in a bowl and allow to age for several hours. In Mexico it is accustomed to add some flat beer. It gives it a nice taste and helps preserve it. I add 1 4 teaspoon of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) powder. It keeps nicely for about 10 days. If you are going to keep it around longer add 1 tablespoon of virgin olive oil.
Omega-3 (g) 0.2 This recipe uses coconut, a plant source of saturated fat, one generally recognized as having many health-promoting properties. The coconut in this recipe forms a flaky crust for the chicken, and is complemented with steamed broccoli with olive oil and lemon juice.
Your goal-for a large percentage of you, your destiny-of reaching your desired weight and staying there for life is best met by realistically considering which levels of carbohydrate intake apply to you. In OWL, you will take the physical and emotional well-being promoted by fat burning and combine that with the gustatory pleasure of an increasingly varied diet. Specifically, on OWL you will
Drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil Season the lamb with olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano. Alternating with the lamb, potatoes and onions, place on each skewer. In a mixing bowl, combine the tomatoes, cucumbers, garlic, parsley and olives. Season with a drizzle of the extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside. Place the lamb on the grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium rare. Remove from the grill and cool for a couple of minutes. To serve, place the kabobs on a large platter. Spoon the tomato mixture over the kabobs. Serve with the warm pita bread and a wedge of lemon.
The body bums alcohol for fuel when alcohol is available. So when it is burning alcohol, your body will not burn fat. This does not stop weight loss it simply postpones it. Since the alcohol does not get stored as glycogen, you immediately get back into lipolysis after the alcohol is used up. But keep in mind that alcohol consumption may increase yeast-related symptoms in some people (see Chapter 25) and interfere with weight loss. If it does not slow your weight loss, an occasional glass of wine is acceptable once you are out of Induction so long as you count the carbohydrates in your daily tally. (A 31 2-ounce glass of wine contains about 4.3 grams of carbohydrate.) Spirits such as Scotch, rye, vodka and gin are acceptable, but do not mix with juice, tonic water or non-diet soda, all of which contain sugar. Seltzer, diet tonic and non-aspartame diet soda mixers are permitted. If you have added alcohol to your regimen and suddenly stop losing weight, discontinue your alcohol intake.
Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil Preheat the grill. Season both sides of the eggplant slices with olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill the eggplant for 2 minutes on each side. Lay a piece of prosciutto on one piece of grilled eggplant. Lay a slice of cheese on top of the prosciutto. Carefully roll up the eggplant and secure the roll with two toothpicks. Repeat the above process with the remaining grilled eggplant. Cut the radicchio in quarters. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill for 1 minute on each side. Remove from the grill and cut away the core of the lettuce. Using a sharp knife, shred the radicchio. In a mixing bowl, toss the radicchio with extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Set aside. Place the eggplant roulades on the grill and cook until the cheese starts to melt. Remove from the grill. Place the greens on a large platter. Arrange the roulades on the platter. Drizzle the entire platter with the Balsamic Syrup.

I live in the Pacific Northwest, where salmon is plentiful, and I've learned to love the flavor of this magnificent fish. Besides tasting terrific in this simple recipe, salmon is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce the risk of heart attack.

But even with flexibility and great food, you can come upon a patch of trouble. What if you're happily eating away and feeling great, and then suddenly you notice those awful pounds and inches are staging a revival Since you are in Lifetime Maintenance, I know that you've reached your goal weight. Therefore, you're probably no longer in lipolysis, which, by definition, involves an element of fat loss. Newly slim people are no longer trying to shed pounds, and so they don't burn fat for fuel most of the time because they're above their CCLL.

Doing Atkins, because we can cheat on the weekends, then go back to Induction on Monday morning While this behavior pattern may work for the short term, it will probably backfire in more ways than one. It's likely that your metabolism will adapt at a certain point-in a sense, developing a tolerance. People who repeatedly regain weight and go back to Induction sometimes find that they do not experience the dramatic and easy weight loss they initially enjoyed. Add in the fact that none of us is getting any younger and our metabolism's natural tendency is to slow down with passing years. Finally, your body pays a price healthwise if you dramatically switch back and forth repeatedly from a fat-burning to a glucose-burning metabolism.
That's right, when used properly, fat intake can be a strong ally, rather than a deadly foe. Of course, it is true that certain fats probably do plug up our arteries, make us fatter, and accelerate our aging. But it's also true that many other dietary fats can offer protection against heart disease, free radical damage, and cancer can increase metabolic rate and fat burning can increase muscle mass and can increase the production of hormones like testosterone. 2) Split up your total dietary fat intake as follows - 1 3 from saturated fat, 1 3 from monounsaturated fat and 1 3 from polyunsaturated fat. 3) Of your polyunsaturated fat intake, about 1 2 should come from omega 3s and 1 2 from omega 6s.

Unfortunately for us, the composition of fat in an animal's body is determined by the types of fat that they eat. Feed a cow grains, chicken feces, and other cows - and you get an animal with fat that's too high in its omega 6 to omega 3 ratio. This is bad for us. However, let that cow graze naturally on food that she prefers, and you get a great omega 6 to omega 3 ratio. That's good for us. The table below shows just how screwed up the omega fat ratio can be in our grain-fed beef compared to wild and free-range animals. Note, a lower ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 is best. Omega-3 Omega-3

Although still more exotic than a rib eye steak, ostrich meat is showing up on more and more restaurant menus, a direct correlation to the hundreds of ostrich ranches now in the United States. Some specialty meat markets may carry, or will special order, ostrich meat. The meat is deep red and looks like very lean beef. Ostrich is low in saturated fat and has very little cholesterol. Because ostrich is a bird, it technically is classified as poultry, but it tastes more like venison and is similar to lean beef in its color and texture.
1 Cup Extra-virgin olive oil Preheat the grill. Season the fish with salt and pepper. In a large saute pan, combine the fish stock, wine, onions, thyme, bay leaves and garlic cloves. Season the liquid with salt and pepper. Bring the liquid up to a simmer. Add the whole fish and poach for about 8 to 12 minutes. After the first 8 minutes, stick a paring knife into the back of the fish and try to gently pull back the flesh from the bone. If the flesh sticks to the bone, poach for a couple of minutes more. Keep testing until the fish is done. Toss the vegetables with the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place the vegetables on the hot grill and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove from the heat and julienne the vegetables. Place the tomatoes in a blender and puree with the garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, basil and mustard. Season the sauce with salt and pepper. To assemble, place the julienned vegetables on a large plate. Lay the poached fish on top of the vegetables....

I recommend that your daily minimum of thirty minutes of physical activity take place all at once because it will get your fat-burning engine into a sustained mode. However, for those of you who absolutely cannot or will not do it all at once, the following provides some benefits, although results will take longer to achieve Try three ten-minute sessions (or two fifteen-minute sessions) of moderately intense activity. For example, do ten minutes of sit-ups, leg lifts, stretching and arm exercises in the morning take a brisk ten-minute walk at lunchtime rake
On low-fat and low-calorie diets, people can do serious harm to themselves by overexercising. When the body isn't getting enough protein from food, it turns to its only source of non-dietary protein muscle. The body will actually begin to consume its own healthy muscle tissue. If you think this happens only to starving people in developing countries, you're wrong. Do you know someone who eats half a bagel and fruit for breakfast and a salad and diet soda for lunch And then goes to the gym right after work Where is her body going to find the protein to fuel her for those forty-five minutes on the stair-climbing machine It will turn to the very muscles she's trying to build and tone-not to the fat cells she thinks she's burning.

Atkins Basic 3 Formula contains all the ingredients in my basic multiple vitamin, known as Basic 1, although in somewhat different dosages (see table beginning below). Basic 1 is a good formulation when weight loss is not an issue. Basic 3, on the other hand, is designed to be taken as three tablets daily, one with each meal. Compared to Basic 1, it contains greater amounts of certain nutrients-including chromium, pantethine, selenium, vanadium and biotin-all of which play a role in regulating blood sugar and insulin, as well as in burning fat. We've also included additional amounts of antioxidants. Although you will certainly be able to find a good multivitamin that contains most of the ingredients in Basic 3, you may choose to purchase separately the individual substances I've just cited so you can take them in the desired amounts. Basic 3 is formulated with intestinal flora, which helps your body use the nutrients more easily. It contains the following

Perhaps your friends and or family who practice less than diligent eating habits would like to believe that you would probably shriek and flee at the sight of a cheesecake. Throw them for a loop and prepare one yourself and then let them watch you sit down and eat half of it. Of course, you'll be eating our high-protein, healthy, and delicious version, but they'll be none the wiser. We even managed to slip some omega-3's in there Good luck keeping one of these around for longer than a day. omega-3 (g) Have you ever noticed that zucchini bread sounds like it should be healthy, but it is typically full of sugar, enriched flour, and bad fats We're taking a great concept, avoiding the bad ingredients, and adding a host of good ones that provide not only protein, but vitamins and micronutrients from the zucchini, fiber from the whole wheat flour and flax meal, and omega-3's from the flax. But don't get lost in the technicalities of this recipe - it tastes great
For many years these deliciously fattening sweets were served at Christmas time in our family. Any dietist would scream blue murder after reading the recipe, since they come loaded with cholesterol-raising saturated fat. But they are sooooo delicious, so once a year you should be permitted to indulge in them.

It is important to remember that yeast overgrowth stresses the immune system, undermining your total health. When it comes to weight loss, a yeast overgrowth, in combination with mold sensitivity, may lead to a suppressed metabolism. This may deplete your body of the energy it takes to burn fat. Of course, there may well be other causes that we haven't yet identified. I think that the complete explanation of what Candida overgrowth does to the human body is still well in the future. (For a few common annoyances, see Did You Know These Conditions Are Yeast Related on page 337.) But I do know from my medical practice that this is a problem that can cripple weight loss efforts.

The Dangers of Trans Fats Many Americans are still unaware that the most grossly harmful heart health trend of the last century was the gradual replacement of healthy natural fats and protein foods with foods such as margarine. They are constructed with hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils, which both contain fats never found in Nature. Called trans fats--meaning transformed from their natural state-they are manufactured by heating vegetable oils at a high temperature and bombarding them with hydrogen gas to form more stable oils. The process creates trans fats constructed of twisted, unnatural molecules that the body cannot process. The food industry sticks these hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils into virtually all baked goods and other junk food. The reasons are economic ones Unlike butter, olive oil or other natural fats, trans fats have a shelf life from now to Doomsday. Walter Willett, MD, chairman of the department of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public...

When you burn fat, it breaks down into glycerol and other fatty acids. How does the process actually work Are there any drawbacks There are plenty of laypeople and even physicians who think there must be. To avoid any further confusion, I will use the term lipolysis throughout this chapter to describe the process of burning fat for energy.

It does not contain any trans fatty acids (TFAs) like hydrogenated oils do. It is a source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), which are especially valuable to people who have trouble digesting fat. MCTs enable the body to metabolize fat efficiently and convert it to energy rather than storing it as fat. Additionally, almost 5o of coconut oil's fatty acid content is lauric acid, a disease fighting fatty acid not commonly found in plant sources. Coconut oil is particularly good in desserts that traditionally use butter (also a saturated fat) such as cookies and pie crusts. It gives the cookies a wonderful texture with less oil than...
You'll recall that I said the metabolic advantage would enable you to lose weight on Atkins eating more calories than on its low-fat counterpart. Burning fat takes more energy so you expend more calories when you follow a controlled carbohydrate nutritional approach. Now let's look at some other research that supports the fat-burning theory, this time from the Oakland Naval Hospital. Impressed with the Kekwick and Pawan success, Frederick Benoit and his associates decided to compare a 1,000calorie, 10-grams-of-carbohydrate, high-fat diet with fasting (the same principle that Kekwick and Pawan found most effective), using seven men weighing between 230 and 290 pounds. They used state-of-the-art body composition technology. After ten days, the fasting subjects lost 21 pounds on average, but most of that was lean body weight only 7.5 pounds was body fat. However, on the controlled carbohydrate regimen over the same period of time, 14 of the 14.5 pounds lost was body fat. Think of it. By...

Still, retailers are developing products and outlining health initiatives that are allowing them to compete more effectively with brands. For example, many brand manufacturers have announced the reduction or elimination of trans fats from some of their products, but in November 2005, UK retailer Marks & Spencer announced it would remove all hydrogenated fats (trans fats) from its entire food range by mid 2006. Kraft is a key player in the trans fat free movement and announced in December 2005 it has successfully completed its trans fat reduction efforts and will meet the January 1st 2006 U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) deadline for on-pack trans fat labeling. However, there will be delays on some products re-entering the store due to issues with reformulation and not all products will be completely free from trans fats. Other manufacturers that are developing trans fat free or reduced fat products include Kellogg and Pepsi owned Frito-Lay. Marks & Spencer are removing trans fats...

You don't have to use LTS, but doing so can be an extremely convenient aid to doing Atkins. My patients often tell me that they find the strips psychologically supporting. To see them go from beige to pink or purple is to receive in chemical code the message you're burning fat. On the other hand, if you're not getting the results you expect, they will surely help clear up the mystery of what is standing in your way. After all, the clear premise for Induction is to switch you into a primarily fat-burning metabolism by sharply controlling carb intake. Your LTS will help measure the extent to which you've done so. Later, as you move through the other phases and increase your carbohydrate intake, the strips are no longer needed. As long as you continue to lose weight gradually, lose inches, have your appetite under control and experience none of your old symptoms, you are clearly burning fat. Moreover, in most cases the LTS will no longer turn pink or purple once you are taking in 50 or...

Reality When you do Atkins during the week and then cheat on the weekends, for several days after your binge, you are no longer burning fat. At most, you could be in the fat-burning state for only three days each week. In addition, you may have overstimulated your insulin response, increasing the metabolic risk factors underlying your weight problem. Remember that when you burn fat, dietary fat is also being burned. However, if you combine high carbs with high fat-the typical American diet-you can be increasing your cardiovascular risks. Reality To encourage your body to burn its own stores of fat, you need to reduce the amount of carbohydrates you eat, meaning you need to eat primarily foods rich in protein and fat. Remember that essential fatty acids play a role in normal metabolic function. Fat also plays a role in stabilizing blood sugar and increasing satiety. If fat intake is too low, you will not burn fat aggresively. Moreover, excess protein converts to glucose and can keep...

Plant-based diets are cholesterol-free and lower in total fat, especially saturated fat, than meat-based diets. They are higher in fiber, antioxidants, and phytochemicals. Animal products are the primary source of saturated fkts, which cause the liver to produce more cholesterol, raising LDL ( bad cholesterol) levels dramatically. Saturated fat does not occur in the plant kingdom in any significant amount, except in tropical oils, such as coconut and palm oil, and in cocoa butter. Animal products contain no fiber, whereas a plant-based diet is high in fiber, which carries excess hormones and cholesterol out of the body. Yet when a patient presents with coronary heart disease, the remedy offered by the medical community at large is overwhelmingly either coronary bypass surgery, or angioplasty combined with cholesterol-lowering drugs. This is because Western medicine continues to be more focused on treating the symptoms rather than the cause. Therefore, generally a surgeon is called in...
Choose a diet that is low in saturated fat and cholesterol and moderate in total fat Fat is a nutrient that is essential for health, but too much fat in your diet, especially saturated fat, increases your risk of several diseases, including heart disease. Most important, learn to identify the sources of fats, saturated fats, and cholesterol, and make healthful food choices. (See Chapter 2, Fats, page 26, and Chapter 3, Coronary Artery Disease, page 61.)
The Estimated Nutritional Values tables in this section show that use of coconut cream and coconut milk in recipes is a concern for maintaining a healthy diet. Both of these foods are extremely high in saturated fat. In most recipes using these foods, a note has been added that substituting up to half of the coconut cream with cow's milk will reduce the saturated fat. Canned condensed milk is thicker, like coconut cream. An extract of coconut can be added for flavoring. It is understood that Pacific islanders have used coconut cream as an important part of their diet for a very long time. However, changes have occurred in many people's lifestyles in the region. Work has become more sedentary and other forms of exercise may have decreased. The increased use of prepared foods in the diet has also introduced additional sources of fat and saturated fat. The issue is complex with many variables to consider. Yet, the current nutritional recommendations which limit fat and saturated fat in...
Oils are one of the essentials of our diet, containing lecithin, vitamins A, E and K, and minerals. Fats and oils can be divided into three kinds saturated, mono-unsaturated and polyunsaturated. Animal fats, which arc solid at room temperature, arc high in saturated fats. Excessive consumption of these fats is associated with heart disease. Most vegetable oils arc high in polyunsaturated oils. These are preferable because they tend to lower the level of cholesterol in the blood. Polyunsaturated oils include safflower, sunflower, sesame and corn oil. Olive oil is mono-unsaturated and can be regarded as neutral. Margarine, despite its labelling 'high in polyunsaturates', contains at least 50 per cent saturated fat. It is, however, preferable to butter which contains only 3 per cent polyunsaturates.
Also called hypertension, this condition puts you at risk for heart disease and stroke. Diet plays a big role in your chance of developing high blood pressure. Following an eating plan low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and moderate in total fat is important for heart health generally and may help prevent or control high blood pressure. A key ingredient of this plan should be reducing your intake of salt (sodium chloride) and other forms of sodium.
Our health is influenced by both the amount and the type of fat that we eat. Fats are molecules they are classified according to the chemical structures of their component parts. But you don't need to be a chemist to understand the connection between the various fats in foods and the effect these fats have on the risk for disease. Some definitions will help. Dietary fats, or triglycerides, are the fats in foods. They are molecules made of fatty acids (chain-like molecules of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen) linked in groups of three to a backbone called glycerol. When we eat foods that contain fat, the fatty acids are separated from their glycerol backbone during the process of digestion. Polyunsaturated fatty acids lack two or more pairs of hydrogen atoms on their carbon chain. Safflower, sunflower, sesame, corn, and soybean oil are among the sources of polyunsaturated fats (which are also liquid at room temperature). The essential fatty acids, linoleic and linolenic acid, are...
To appeal to our desire for lower-fat substitutes for our favorite high-fat foods, the commercial food industry has developed low- or lower-fat versions of many foods using various fat replacers. Until recently, fat replacers always consisted of proteins or carbohydrates, such as starches or gels, but the kinds of foods that could be prepared with these fat replacers were limited by their inability to withstand the high temperatures of frying. In 1996, after a long period of development, safety testing, and governmental review, the first non-caloric fat, olestra, was approved by the FDA for use in the manufacture of savory (non-sweet) snacks (such as crackers and chips). Because olestra is a modified fat, it is the first heat-resistant fat substitute, which allows it to be used to make fried foods. In addition, olestra gives foods the flavor and creamy mouth feel of high-fat foods. Saturated Fat (grams) How should you decide whether to include foods with fat replacers in your eating...
Cooked meat holds better in the refrigerator, than raw meat because through heat you got rid of harmful microorganisms and deactivated enzymes in the chicken that otherwise start to spoil the meat. But the flavor just isn't the same after three or four days as it was the Friday after Thanksgiving. Food scientists refer to this phenomenon as warmed-over flavor and I discussed in detail in Warmed-over flavor in the Meat chapter. Poultry is exceptionally susceptible because it is high in unsaturated fats, which tend to turn rancid faster than saturated fats.
The real health benefit of eating seafood is its much lower saturated fat content. Seafood contains high polyunsaturated fatty acid (called omega-3), which nutritionists consider important for people susceptible to heart and blood pressure problems. Even though many people switched to seafood for that reason, more recent research published in 1997 disputed the cardiac benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. Nevertheless, seafood is still a good, healthy fare. The good news is that, overall, seafood have less of the unhealthy type saturated fat, and more of the desirable type, polyunsaturated fat, than other meats, and that makes fish a hot item for people who are concerned about their fat intake and cholesterol levels. This isn't such good news for the cook, because it is polyunsaturated fat that makes fish spoil much faster than other meats. It turns rancid quickly.
