Dietary Fats for Fertility

on November 30, 2012

healthy oilsLow fat diets, especially vegetarian and vegan diets, although touted by the diet industry, are associated with infertility. A recent study showed that women on low fat diets were likely to be infertile, while women on high fat diets had no problem getting pregnant. – Weston A Price Foundation.

Of course, it depends on the kind of fat. Butter, olive oil, avocados, and coconut oil are among the best – the kinds of fats you and your baby need. Without these fats you will crave refined carbs, which rob your body and your baby’s body of nutrients.

Your brain – and your baby’s brain – are made of fat. One of the most important fats that makes up the brain is called aracadonic acid – an omega-6 fatty acid that is found only in animal fats, such as in butter, egg yolks, organ meats and meat fats. Popular authors have warned against eating butter, liver and other fatty foods. But they neglect to tell you that the brain is 11 percent arachidonic acid. This saturated fat is really critical for BRAIN FUNCTION. The best source is butter, followed by liver.

The other thing that arachidonic acid does is create tight cell-to-cell junctures, which are what make your gut impermeable so that allergenic proteins can’t get through to the bloodstream. Colic, autism, colitis, etc, are all associated with leaky gut.

It may also be interesting to note that replacing carbs with GOOD fats in your diet will cause you to LOSE weight!! While those carbs were creating an insulin imbalance in your body and causing you to crave more carbs, the fats will be providing a concentrated source of energy. They will slow down nutrient absorption so you can go longer without feeling hungry.

We also need fats as carriers for Vitamins A, D, E, and K, to convert carotene to vitamin A, and to absorb the minerals in our foods.

The low fat diet is the great for the food industry and for the fertility industry, but you and your baby are paying the price for it. For more information on the truthfully healthy diet, see the Weston A Price Foundation.
