The Ultimate Omega-3 Diet

FAB RESEARCH COMMENT:

Highly recommended reading starting with the basics of omega-3 fats, the role they play in the prevention of diseases to how you can optimise your diet by including omega-3 fats.

The amazing health benefits of omega-3 fats have been grabbing headlines all over the world, but rarely do you hear about how to properly incorporate this miraculous nutrient into your everyday life. The Ultimate Omega-3 Diet is the first book to provide a simple, step-by-step guide to getting the right amount of omega-3 fats while balancing your intake of less healthy omega-6 fats. The result: a reduced risk of stroke, allergies, cancer, and Alzheimer's disease and improved treatment of depression, asthma, arthritis, and other ailments.

With The Ultimate Omega-3 Diet, you will:

  • UNDERSTAND the building blocks of omega-3 and omega-6 fats and the science behind the harmful effects of excess omega-6s on your body
  • INCREASE your intake of ALA (short-chain) fats such as flax and canola oils, while also getting enough key EPA and DHA (long-chain) fats, including fatty fish
  • IDENTIFY and limit omega-6 fats, which lead to heart problems, mood disorders, inflammation disorders, cancer, and other ailments
  • CHOOSE the best omega-3 supplements - without wasting money on what you don't need
  • PREPARE easy, delicious snacks and meals and make the best choices when eating out
  • LEARN how a good supply of omega-3s during pregnancy can help guarantee health far into a child's life


Food labels, packaging, TV commercials, and magazine articles often give misleading information on omega-3s and "healthy" fats, and those popular low-carb, high-fat diets actually cancel out the good effects of omega-3 fats. With all this conflicting informaiton, it's easy to be overwhelmed when considering a healthy diet change. But living the omega-3 lifestyle doesn't have to be a confusing guessing game. The Ultimate Omega-3 Diet offers practical, easy-to-follow strategies for chaing your eating habits, including 40 delicious recipes for everything from pancakes to burritos to brownies, as well as vegetarian and kid-friendly choices.
