Pharmacist Ben Fuchs fills in for Dr. Joel Wallach beginning the show discussing good fats. Outlining the importance of supplementing with essential fatty acids like Youngevity's "Ultimate EFAs". Asserting that 80% of Americans don't get enough omega 3, 6 and 9. Citing several health challenges that can occur when people are deficient in these important nutrients.
Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article concerning reasons not to use intermittent fasting for weight loss. The first is that after fasting or cutting calories for a day many people especially women binge eat afterwards. Second lack of calories can cause interruptions in sleep which in turn can increase cravings for sweet and fatty foods. Third unless people are supplementing they will be deprived of essential nutrients. Finally fasting can lead to not only fat loss but muscle loss as well.
