    Heathy Fats

    Would it be worth it to incorporate taking a healthy fat, I picked up some Avocado Oil the other day and I have a very high metabolism so would it benefit me to take a tbsp everyday, every other day, or just cook with it. Just wondering if anyone else takes a tbsp of healthy fats like this.

    A lot of guys do that...Is it difficult for you to put on weight/muscle mass? If so then give it a try, canít hurt.

    Yes, I have always been very lean and a hard gainer but in the last 6 months I have really tried to clean up my diet but keep the calories high. I'm 38 now but the metabolism still is high.

    Also, walnuts are a good source of healthy fats. And unlike some other nuts, they contain more calories from fat than from carbs

    I do not really like avocado, it also costs expensive.I use extra virgin olive oil and dried fruit (mostly almonds)

    What's a healthy fat?
    The average western diet has an average of 30:1 omega 6 to omega 3 ratio which is a leading cause of problems such as inflammation. A 3:1 ratio will not cause these problems and can be achieved by eating more vegetables and certain fish for starters. Popping fish oil caps won't do it. Avacodo oil is 13:1 and 13% saturated fat...
    I would be more inclined to examine and correct my diet before thinking about supplementation.

    If inflammation is an issue my first thing to address would be sugar and carb intake......

    The context was healthy fats.
    Healthy fats contain the correct ratio of omega 6 to omega 3s.
    Excess consumption of omega 6 is a major cause of inflammation whether CHO is controlled or not.

    It seems this thread has taken two directions - healthy fats and inflammation. There is more to reducing inflammation than just keeping the omega 6 to omega 3 ratio low (4:1 is advised). Foods rich in antioxidants also reduce inflammation. Like in the case of an avocado. The avocado has a 15 to 1 ratio, yet it is considered an anti-inflammatory food. Why? Because most of the fat in an avocado is monounsaturated, mostly oleic acid, a type of fatty acid that has been shown to reduce certain biomarkers of inflammation. Plus an avocado is rich in antioxidants lending to its reputation as a super food, and overall I would consider it a healthy fat. Keep in mind I'm referring to the avocado fruit, not just the oil. Fatty fish is a good source of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, another healthy fat rich food.

    I agree with oldschool you should use your diet as a whole to get a good mix of healthy fats, antioxidants, with anti-inflammatory properties. These listed below are some of the best, and have been shown to reduce inflammation.

    Berries (blueberries are my fav)
    All fish contains omega 3's but fatty fish like salmon and mackeral are the best
    Broccoli
    Avocados
    Green tea
    Tomatoes
    Bell and chili peppers
    Mushrooms
    Extra virgin olive oil
    Dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa
