Fats

Hi guys,

I know I have my diet dialed in bar one thing - what is a good source of fats to utilise as an energy that doesn't come in the form of carbohydrates??

I.e. - peanut butter & cashews etc - great essential fats but also have a carb value whereas boiled eggs or mackerel are just fats.

Can anyone add to the eggs/fish list (mackerel gets too overpowering after a while!) so I can get some more fats in my diet without the carbs coming in too?? OR is it a case of the carb value within cashews etc is minimal in comparison to the fat content that in most peoples diet it just registers as a fat value rather than carbs?

I'm currently cutting up at the moment - so cardio (low intensity) in the morning which is following by 100g of carbs via oats... Then no other carbs until post work out nutrition via white bagel and protein shake to replenish glycogen stores which have just been burnt up...

Thanks for help and appreciate a look in the right direction - was thinking along lines of Flax seed oil etc??

Matt

    Cold pressed Hemp oil is also very high in omega 3, 6 and 9

    Guys,

    Me again - rather than a new thread, kick this one off again.

    Bought some Flaxseed Oil today at lunch, the nutritional values are;

    Teaspoon (5ml) contains - 4,650mg of Flaxseed/Linseed oil

    So, without sounding like a complete n00b (!) 2 teaspoons (10ml) of flaxseed is going to give me (nearly) 10g of essential fats (Omega-3 fatty acids) to burn??

    Cheers again
