The Omega 3 Lifestyle

By David McEvoy

Omega 3 is known to have amazing affects on many aspects of health, but it should not be treated as a miracle cure - in order to remain fit and healthy, you have to maintain a healthy lifestyle which an Omega 3 supplement will enhance and support. With a little effort and common sense you will find you become healthier and happier.

These tips and general suggestions make a good start in allowing natural sources of Omega 3 to do their work.

Wherever possible make sure you eat whole, natural, and fresh foods.

You should try to eat five to ten servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Also make room in your diet for more peas, beans, and nuts.

You can increase your intake of omega 3 fatty acids by eating more fish, walnuts, flaxseed oil and green leafy vegetables. For instance, you can obtain an adequate doseage of omega 3 fats by eating two salmon a week, or by taking a gram of omega 3 fatty acid supplement daily.

Use olive and canola oil in cooking.

Drink water, tea, non-fat dairy and - good news! - red wine (two drinks daily or less for men, one drink or less for women).

Lean protein such as skinless poultry, fish and lean cuts of red meat is the better alternative.

Try to avoid trans-fats and limit your intake of saturated fats. So avoid fried foods, hard margarine, commercial baked goods, most packaged and processed snack foods and high fat dairy, as well as processed meats such as bacon, sausage, and deli meats.

Limit your consumption of glycemic foods. Glycemic foods are foods made with sugar and white flour that increase blood sugar levels. Increased blood sugar levels stimulate the pancreas to release insulin, upsetting the body's natural balance. Chronically high insulin levels are believed to cause weight gain, as well as atherosclerosis of arteries.

Finally, take twenty minutes moderate exercise a day - it's easier than you think.

Conclusion

Looking after your body and ensuring it has enough Omega 3 is simpler than you might imagine, and the benefits are enormous.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
