expert : Udo Erasmus PhD
by Mariana Bozesan
During the past decades the Western society has suffered greatly from bad advice from the food industry that made us to believe that fat is bad and carbohydrates are good. The truth, however, is that not all fats are bad and that there are some fats that are not only good but essential to our health and well-being. We must have them to survive and be healthy.
These fats are called essential fatty acids, also called Omega-3 and Omega-6 and they have to be ingested in the right proportion so that they can be assimilated by and be effective in the body. Dr. Udo Erasmus, the world’s most famous authority on fats, says that in reality 99.9 percent of the Western population doesn’t get enough Omega-3 fats in their diet. The results are chronic disease such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes.
I have met Dr. Erasmus in March of 2002 and was amazed to learn that he had just turned sixty years old, because he looked like early forty. His life path brought him to essential fatty acids due to a chemical poisoning that threatened his life. He healed himself with oils and became the leading expert in health and wellbeing.
And I am trilled to have him be part of the Diet for a New Life Program. To lose weight, stay healthy and ensure proper tissue lubrication and youthful skin, Dr. Erasmus encourages us to consume one tablespoon per 50 pounds (25Kg) of body weight three times per day. He recommends eating less carbohydrates and more essential fats. Omega-3s turn on the fat burning gene and off the fat production gene. When we replace carbohydrates with good fats, they help burn unwanted fats, suppress appetite, don’t make the blood sugar and insulin level go up and down, and don’t increase fat production.
Enjoy the outstanding wisdom of another extraordinary world expert!
