All the omega EFAs come from fish, for the most part, and it is great to get them in capsule form for those people who cannot stand the taste of fish. But if you have kids, then you may want to serve them salmon patties since that is very good for their brain. As an adult, however, things are pretty much evened out with fish, particularly salmon, is one of the best foods you can eat. The essential fatty acids found in this fish are the true source, and this is why we recommend salmon so much. You would do well to do research on various supplements if you would rather take them than cook the fish, etc.
What do you think and feel about saturated fats? And this is an important question because there are some myths associated with it. There are actually probably more than one myth about this fat, and that is for good reason if you read enough of the literature, etc. Most people can eat moderate or balanced amounts of saturated fats, and this will not be disputed by your doctor, maybe. All things being equal, you can remain healthy if other things are in place and your genetics are reasonably accommodating. Now, you have to have common sense about this, and do not eat marbled steak every day and sit on the sofa watching the tube all day long.
There are some things that are lies and only meant to take your money, and this is not just in fitness areas. If you have been gullible in the past, then just try to get better with not thinking all you read is the truth. We’ve outlined a few of those myths here, but additional research will turn up plenty of others.
