Main benefits

Eating fats as part of a meal slows down absorption.   Staves off hunger for an extended time.

All fats are carriers for fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K.    These vitamins are themselves catalysts for the body's processing of the water-soluble vitamins.

Fats are necessary for the conversion of carotene to vitamin A, for mineral absorption, and other biological processes

Healthy fat consumption

Eliminate toxic fats (E.g. trans fats) by eliminating processed foods, typical grocery store polyunsaturated oils and deep fried foods.   This has the added benefit of concurrently removing many “empty”carbs (including sugar) from your diet.

Use organic butter (best produced from raw milk from cows that grazed) instead of margarine and vegetable oil spreads.   These synthetic fats contain toxic fats. (Don't believe the “No trans fat” labels . . . a certain amount per portion size are legally allowed without mention on the label, and according to Udo Erasmus, Phd, renowned worldwide expert on dietary fats, and author of “Fats that heal, fats that kill”, even those small amounts are detrimental to health.

For frying/cooking, use avocado oil, expeller-pressed coconut oil, ghee, or palm oil.    High heat is less likely to produce toxic fats  in these high smoke oils/ fats than with lower smoke point oils.

Best frying fats

Use extra-virgin olive oil only for COLD recipes.   E.g. dressings

Ensure good daily source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats.    E.g. Wild salmon oil, Krill oil, quality fish or fish liver oil, flaxseeds or fresh flax oil.

 Animal Fats

Meat.  Cut the outer fat off meat (this is where animals store their toxins).  Marbling fat is good.

Animal Fat


•   Prefer raw, organic butter from pastured cows

•   Non-organic butter has highest concentration of pesticides of any food


•   Butter is best source of fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, K

•   Butter contains antimicrobial short/medium- chain-length fatty acids

•    Add butter liberally to vegetables.   Fat-soluble vitamins are catalysts for assimilation of water-soluble vitamins.

•   “Price Factor”.   All butter from cows that ate fast-growing green grass contains Dr. Price's “Activator X” (Vitamin K2), a potent catalyst for mineral absorption.

Vegetable oils

Use only EXPELLER-PRESSED, UNREFINED Oils  (usually found in health-food stores).   Do not use typical grocery store vegetable oils.   Highly-processed with high heat, since they contain harmful trans fats.

avocado oil

Light, heat and air will damage fatty acids in seed, bean and nut oils

Best oils for frying / grilling / sauteing.   Avocado, expeller-pressed coconut oils, butter at low temps.

Best oils/fats to Use for Frying

Margarine / Shortenings

Contain altered, toxic fatty acids  (cause cellular dysfunction)

Damaged /Altered Toxic Fats

Salad Dressings

Make vinaigrette dressing with Extra virgin olive oil, UNREFINED/COLD-PRESSED avocado or other UNREFINED oils mixed with Balsamic or Raw apple cider vinegar

Essential Fats

Since our body is unable to make Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids (so called because they are indeed essential for health), we must therefore ensure their presence in our diet.

For information on these crucially important, essential fatty acids:
