Why Eating Fat Gives You Boundless Energy

A Can’t Mess Up Solution For Boundless Energy #keto #vegan #paleo #lowcarb

The quality of our health – the amount of energy we have, our weight, our brain function, everything, is tied to the fats we eat. I’ll explain what fats you should eat, which to avoid and share the recipe for the perfect blend of fats for balance, energy and clarity.

Fact #1: Fat is a structural component for every cell in our bodies.

Fact #2: Since our bodies cannot create EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids), we must get them from the food we eat. This is why they’re ESSENTIAL, because the body cannot create them.

Fact #3: Cell membranes rely on a daily, balanced supply of EFAs.

There are fats that generate ketones, a source of energy that’s quickly used by the body as an alternative fuel to glucose, and there are fats that act like hormones. What role the fat you’ve just consumed has in your body depends on what it’s made up of.

Ketone-generating fats are rich in medium chain triglycerides. Things like coconut oil, butter and palm oil.

Hormone-acting fats are your classic “omega” fats. Things like flax oil, chia oil, hemp oil, fish oil, camelina oil, organic eggs and grass-fed, organic meats, (and on the flip side) the not-so-good-for-you canola, sunflower and grapeseed. These fats; good and bad, come in 2 different packages – omega 3, and 6.

The ideal balance of omega 3 and 6 should be a ratio of 1:1. Our current eating patterns, it’s in the range of 1:25. Crazy pants.

The key to health…

I’m learning, is in a) the type of fat we eat b) the quantity of fat we eat. Long did I subscribe to the standard recommended proportions of 60% carbohydrate, 20% protein, 20% fat. But our cells don’t need carbohydrate to function like they do fats. So why the heck are we being told to eat such a large portion of carbohydrate and barely any fats?

Knowing just how essential fats are to our health, our energy intake should look something like 70% fat, 20% protein, 10% carbohydrate.

The ingredients in Alpha Energy

Pure MCT oil, fair trade DME™ virgin coconut oil‡*, chia oil‡*, camelina oil‡*, flax oil‡*, certified sustainable palm fruit oil, natural raspberry essential oil* ‡cold pressed *organic

Not a cooking oil, this blend is best for baking (under 350F), in cold foods, or on hot food after preparation. As with any edible oil, it’s best to start slow and work your way up. I advise my clients to begin with 1 teaspoon and gradually increase every 3-4 days until they reach their desired amount. I enjoy 2-3 tablespoons per day.

It’s got camelina oil

Have you heard of it? Camelina sativa or “wild flax” is a powerful oilseed source of essential fatty acids and high in natural vitamin E. Unlike flax and fish oil, it has no bitter or fishy taste, and has a shelf life of 12-18 months because of its high Vitamin E content.

  1. Hi Miss Leanne! First I must say THANK YOU for doing what you do which has helped me to begin to heal my hormones and increase my overall health and wellbeing :) So my question is re:where to get Alpha oil products??? It seems they are only sold in Canada? Amazon has one seller offering the original version but I really want to try the Energy and Balance ones. Would love love love if you created a “Leanne’s favorites” section in your online shop. Would be the best “one stop fat lovers shop” ever :)) LOL. Wishing you peace love and fat bombs….

    • I’m so glad I could help! Congrats on starting to heal your hormones, that’s so great :) I think you’re right, Alpha is only sold in Canada. Thanks for that awesome idea, I’ll consider making a “Leanne’s favorites” section of sorts!

  2. Hi Leanne,

    I’ve been slowly tweaking my fat & carb intake these last 6 weeks and seeing as though you’re the one who peaked my keto interest I thought I’d share with you some of my experiences.

    First off, I feel amazing! My brain is loving this new low carb high fat combo. I am HIV+ so I can’t adjust my protein intake too much as I need extra protein to manage the virus. I’ve been using Fit Day to monitor my carb/fat/protein ratio and I’m finding my best days are 5% carb, 75% fat, and 20% protein.

    The biggest challenge for me is not getting bored with my meals. I’m vegan and have sorted out a few go-to meals but am starting to desire a few new ideas. Your fat bomb men made with HempPro 70, and your rocket fuel beverages, and your cornbread waffles (made with flax eggs) have been a saving grace for me. I’m trying not to be too tofu dependent, but it’s hard because it’s a great source of protein, has zero to minimal carbs, and is super versatile. I’ve been bringing black soy beans into rotation, trying out some seitan recipes, and nuts, seeds, and hemp hearts also figure prominently.

    All in all I’m enjoying this way of eating – if anything it’s got me interested in being creative with my food again. Thank you for inspiring me and I hope to have more good news to share with you as the new year unfolds.

    All the best to you and yours!

    • Hi Monique! I’m so happy to hear that this eating style is working well for you, that’s so awesome. And vegan, too. You go, girl!

  3. I’m soooo intrigued by this “diet” because nothing seems to work to balance my hormones so far! However would LOVE a very practical post of a week’s eating plan (for a working busy woman on the go from morning to night). I would first wanna try for a week before buying any products or longer commitment. Possible to help to do that or even post a food diary of your own days?

    Also would really love to hear how has this diet balanced YOUR hormones?

    Thanks so much x

  4. I am like many others – open to it but confused as to where to start! Thank you for this! :)

  5. I love healthy fat, especially knowing that our brain consists in 90% of fat.
