DASH diets and similar (Esselstyn) advise against oil and yet high Omega 3 (eg through oil) is supposed to be protective for strokes and heart disease etc. Is Omega 3 not included in 'oils'?
Man made oils have a high omega6 content fish & olive oil are high in omega3
Olive oil only contains omega 9. Fish oil is best form of omega 3 that the body can readily use.
Olive Oil contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are important in preventing cardiovascular disease and are particularly high in oily fish such as salmon and flax seed oil. There is currently debate about how much omega-3 versus omega-6 one should have in their diet. oliveoilsource.com/definiti...
man made oils and rapeseed oil contain higher percentages of Omega 6
Ok, but I certainly wouldn't rely on getting your omega 3 from olive oil as it only contains a TINY amount and it also contains way more omega 6 than 3, which is not good!
Oily fish first and then Flax for omega 3, IF you can effectively convert the ALA in Flax to DHA.
Yes. When certain doctors say “ avoid oils” does that include omega 3?
No oily fish and olive oil are a natural source of Omega 3
Yes they are I agree. So omega 3 oils are not included when some people say “ no oils”?
Ahh just been messaged this.... omega 3 oil IS included in “ no oils”
Dr Esselstyn postulates a vegetarian if not vegan lifestyle, fish and olive oil form part of the mediterranean diet. Try looking at diet doctor.com and look at ketogenic and low carb recipes.
I am confused and conflicted by advice availability. I was strict Esselstyn diet for 6 months when I discovered I had to have a bypass. But after CABG op was encouraged to eat more protein so reintroduced fish and lean chicken. Now I have also reintroduced olive oil on lunch salads with sardines, so I think I am more the traditional Mediterranean diet. Have recently attended a few conferences on LCHF and Keto and now reaxmining again the best strategy. I take milled flaxseed every morning on my oats - Esselstyn recommends as good source of omega 3.
Yes it is confusing. Oats are advised against by some owing to high omega 6 and carbs. Flaxseed against owing to low absorption...this is featured elsewhere on Health unlocked
