Well hellooooo everyone 🙂 Since I see people still panicking about adding “good” fats to their diet I thought of writing yet another piece on how amazing the “good FATS” are. So do stay with me till the end if you really want to enjoy all your yummy food and still maintain or loose that unwanted fat & gain health in the process 😀

Most of us (especially the online health article readers and health video you tubers) have  heard of these terms EFA’s (Essential Fatty Acids) & EAA’s (Essential Amino Acids) but have any of you heard of ECA’s (Essential Carbohydrate acids)??? If you are still a firm believer that “Eating FAT makes you FAT” &  avoid all the yummy food in the desperation to loose those love handles and fit in that “College day” outfit, well,

YOU ARE IN FOR A SHOCKER.

Saturated fats coming from safe, healthy sources like Grass-fed butter/Ghee, Cold pressed filtered coconut oil, shredded coconut, Grass-fed meats, Malaysian palm oil, wild caught Salmonhttps://radhinaturalhealth.wordpress.com/2014/03/27/salmon-the-wild-one/, Avocados and avocado oil, Filtered groundnut oil, olives, flax seeds, free range chicken eggs and the like are all actually beneficial to humans. These are the “finest” source of energy in the human diet. How? Let’s see 🙂

In our body, our cells manufacture a molecule called “ATP- Adenosine Triphosphate“. This is the Unit of energy. Simply put, ATP is the energy that helps us perform our daily functions. This is the “POWER HOUSE” of our cells. We need this power house to perform any activity taking from growing a beard to dancing away on your favourite tune ;). From each molecule of sugar our cells produce approximately 36 molecules of ATP, whereas our cells produce more than 100 molecules of ATP from every FAT molecule. Walah!!!! this means when we include these healthy fats in our diet our energy level spikes.
