Try using this shopping list and only food in this shopping list for a few weeks and let me know how you go (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This shopping list supports a high fat low carb diet with a focus on the benefits and importance of Omega 3's. Enjoy.
As part of how you’re going to eat on this diet, I have found omega 3’s are the most important and effective for all results.
There is a genius is simplicity and being mindful of the little things and omega 3’s are it.
Below is a list of primary and secondary omega 3 sources. They will make up the bulk of your diet every single day.
If you take one thing from this diet, take the habit of eating omega 3 foods every day for almost every meal.
Omega 3’s are essential for the human brain to work properly. Without a really high level of omega 3’s in our diet our brain starts to age and impairs brain function. Even just having lower levels does this. The brain is made up of 60-70% fat, hence why we need so much.
Omega 3’s are also extremely high in anti-inflammatories and removing toxins from the body.
Inflammation is necessary for building muscle initially but prolonged inflammation can prevent the muscle from healing properly causing toxins to build up.
Omega 3’s can help flush the system and bring the right nutrients to the areas needed to heal them as best as possible.
What is the most important thing when building muscle? Allowing the muscle to heal and recover properly.
A brain that is lacking in omega 3’s and is not working properly will not heal the body as best as possible and due to a lack of omega 3’s the muscles inflammation and toxin removal process also declines.
To build muscle, be healthy, recover like a champ and perform above expectations, get your omega 3’s in.
Essential: Start YOUR morning with an Omega 3 rich meal
To get in as many omega 3’s as you can, your first meal every single day should be rich in omega 3’s. For maximum performance try to include one of these options in every meal.
