712: The Fats that Keep You Fit: Understanding Omega 6's and Omega 3's

I have been doing a ton of research, sifting through the hundreds of beliefs and supposed science to help me determine an optimal nutrition plan for health and weight loss.  I would imagine I am just like millions of people doing the same thing.  However, in all my research one topic continually comes up, the benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids and Omega 6 fatty acids.

Today I want to take you along as I discuss the benefits of these fats that continue to confuse.

What you will learn in this episode:

  • The benefits of Omega 3 Fatty Acids
  • How omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids differ (no chemistry!)
  • Where to find each of these fatty acids in foods
  • Why Omega 6 fatty acids are deemed "bad"
