Best Fat Sources Of Fat To Build Lean Muscle & Burn Fat

Hey Live Leaners, in the last video we talked about my favourite healthy sources of protein. After the aniracetam intro I’m going to share with you my favourite healthy sources of fat’¦yes’¦FAT! Stay tuned. In today’s episode I’m going to share with you my favourite healthy sources of fat.

If you avoid all sources of dietary fat because you don’t want to gain more weight or increase your risk of heart disease…

You must still be living in 1984.

One of the biggest misconceptions in the fitness biz is that you should follow a low fat diet to lose fat and reduce your risk of disease.

What do I say to that?

Welcome to the year 2013.

When it comes to dietary fat, the most important thing is deciphering between healthy sources of fat and unhealthy sources of fat.

First up is saturated fat. Evil right?


Is Saturated Fat Bad For Me?

There has never been any credible, DIRECT correlation that natural forms of saturated fat from animals causes heart disease. This highly flawed study that created all the negativity around saturated fat was led by Ancel Keys the tao of badass . Just google his name to read how flawed this study actually was.

In fact the polynesian culture has some of the highest saturated fat content in their diet, yet they have very few cases of heart disease.

The Health Benefits of Saturated Fat

Saturated fat is an excellent source of energy, provides the body with nutrients that are critical to your health, and helps prevent oxidative damage to your cells.

Not only this, but saturated fat is an integral part of your cells membrane.

So stop hating on saturated fat!

Avoid These Evil Toxic Fats Like The Plague

I’m talking about the chemically altered, man made fats, that are toxic evil.

Partially hydrogenated, hydrogenated, and trans fats.

These are the most dangerous things to today’s diet.

And what’s most scary is they’re found in almost every processed food in the supermarket.

Up to 40% of all food in the supermarket contains one of these evil toxic fats.

Avoid These Foods Containing Trans Fats, Partially Hydrogenated and Hydrogenated Fats

– Frozen dinners

– Cookies

– Chips

-Baked goods

– Many cereals

– Many breads

…and the list goes on.

These man made fats are foreign to the body, wreak havoc on your cells, increase inflammation in the body, and causes aging and cancer.

But these aren’t the only bad guys.

Also Avoid Unstable Polyunsaturated Fats

A high intake of unstable polyunsaturated fats can also wreck havoc on your body. It can:

– Increase oxidation in the body, especially when heated

– Cause hormonal issues with your thyroid, thus slowing your metabolism

– Lower energy levels

– Lower HDL, the healthy cholesterol, and increase LDL, the bad cholesterol

Avoid These Foods High in Unstable Polyunsaturated Fats

Stay away from vegetable oils such as:

– Canola oil

– Margarine

– Vegetable shortening

– Corn oil

– Safflower oil

– Sunflower oil

– Soybean oil

– Cottonseed oil

Heavy consumption of these unstable  polyunsaturated can also contribute to insulin resistance, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, immune problems, and other inflammation issues like arthritis.

Eat These Healthy Sources of Fat

Now what about the healthy fats?

Healthy forms of fat like omega 3s and monounsaturated fats can keep you satiated thus reducing hunger. They have little to no negative impact on your blood sugar and insulin levels and actually encourage your body to use stored fat as fuel for energy.

Omega 3s also support heart, brain, and skin health, as well as supporting a healthy immune system.

The list goes on’¦

They improve blood circulation, reduces inflammation and blood pressure, supports healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and on and on.

Our Ratios Are Way Out of Whack – Omega 6 to Omega 3 Ratios

Unfortunately the western diet is very high in the consumption of the unstable polyunsaturated fats that I listed above. These foods are high in omega 6 fats which has caused a huge imbalance in the omega 6 to omega 3 ratio.

Ideally you want a 2:1 ratio of omega 6s to 3s. The modern diet is now closer to 20:1.

This higher ratio hormonally promotes more fat storage and an increase in inflammation throughout the body.

Get Your Omega 6 to Omega 3 Ratios Back in Check By Eating These Healthy Sources of Fat:

To help bring this ratio more inline, I focus on my fav healthy sources of fats such as:

– oily cold water fish

– omega 3 supplements (go to my “Items I Dig” page for 25% discount of my favorite fish oil product)

– grass fed meat

– free range eggs

Other healthy sources of fats in moderation include:

– Nuts: macadamia (best due to their 06 to 03 ratio), almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios, walnuts

– Raw Nut Butters (with one ingredient)

– Seeds – pumpkin seeds (best due to their 06 to 03 ratio), flaxseeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds.

– Raw Seed Butter (with one ingredient)

Side Note: peanuts are not actually a nut. they’re a legume and have been known to be an allergenic and can actually produce a potent carcinogen in the body. So I avoid peanuts and peanut butter.


I know this is a controversial topic that some of you may disagree with. Please do the research for yourself and learn which fats are in fact healthy and which you should avoid. Do this  rather than just following the conventional hype that scares you from consuming the staples that has been in humans diets for centuries.

I’ll leave you with this’¦

By avoiding healthy sources of fat, you’ll be increasing your risk of cancer, heart disease, and obesity. By eating healthy sources of fat, you’ll be helping prevent heart disease and cancer.

During the next video, I’m going to share my fav sources of carbohydrates. We’ll talk to you then.

This has to be by far my favorite video yet, because you jammed so many facts in a short amount of time, about healthy fats which so many people are ignorant about. I especially enjoyed this video because I’m hardcore Paleo and I feel like you took a page out of one of the Paleo books I’ve read 😀 keep up the great work!

  13. ok i have a question… my moms doctor told her to use safflower oil for all cooking to reduce her swelling from RA and lupus… she has done this for 3 months now, and i see more pain and swelling and now they are wanting to put her a a 3 rx drug regimen to control the RA, that have side affects out of this world… i think the oil switch caused the mass flare and that changing that could keep her off the extreme drugs… am i nuts or am i on the right track?

  14. What about butter and other animal fat? That’s not hydrogenated or poly un saturated …just curious what your thoughts are on whether eating those fats is okay

  15. I have friends who tell me I shouldn’t eat natural almonds because theyre high in fats, then they go and eat..oreos, for example.

  16. If you’d be kind to answer. Out of curiosity, how old and tall are you? I ask because I heard you mention that you weigh around 170 lbs or so. I’m around that weight and 5 foot 8 but no where near those guns you’re packing 😀
