  • Sources of fat?

    Can anyone point me to a list of good sources of nutritional fat? Need to cut these carbs down, having reflux that I cannot get rid of and I don't want what that leads to........scares the hell out of me.

    Not sure the ultra low carbs will get rid of it but I must push it.

    Uh, red meat, red meat, red meat.

    Also, coconut oil, butter, ghee, tallow, lard...

    Avocados (make lots of guacamole).

    Do you do dairy? Cheese, cream, whole milk...

    Also, GERD means digestive issues. Try some Apple cider vinegar before meals, also digestif bitters. Digestive enzymes may be of use here too.

      I like roasting and sauteing veggies in olive oil. Bacon grease/lard is good and plentiful around here. I use coconut oil to saute greens in.
      My food philosophy is whole foods, simply and traditionally prepared. Food should honor your taste, health, and the environment.

        Yes, I like and eat dairy, particularly extra sharp cheddar

        What are digestif bitters? (or should that be digestive?)

        What about betaine hcl supplementation? Should that make it better or worse?

          There is sometimes a different answer for eating fat versus cooking with fat. In either case you want to understand the differences between saturated, monounsaturated and PUFA fats (Omega 3 vs Omega 6).

          In particular you want to minimize PUFA due to their instability. Omega 6 oils (think "seed oils") are particularly bad. You want to have enough Omega 3 from fish and stuff to offset Omega 6. I personally eat a ton of fish and think that is good. So, the safest meats are grass fed beef or lamb -- and I think wild fish as well salmon, sardines, etc.. Most pork and chicken have a lot of Omega 6 oils ,so best to limit. You can also add olive oil or butter to your food/salads or coconut oil and butter to your coffee if you want to go bullet proof. Heavy cream is also good -- especially if organic grass fed.

          For cooking the best are ones with high smoke points like lard, tallow and ghee. Refined coconut oil and avocado oil are also good.

            Good quality, organic, cold pressed, extra virgin, olive oil.


            If you have access to Costco - their Kirkland's Organic is a great value.

              These suggestions are prefect. Get grass fed dairy when possible, especially with butter.

                Nope, I mean stuff like ths:

                Digestif.com - Angostura Aromatic Bitters

                Why? Because:

                Digestive Bitters: Better than Probiotics! - Gwens Nest

                And

                Bitters -your key to healthy digestion

                And

                About Urban Moonshine Digestive Bitters | Urban Moonshine

                TL;DR = digestif bitters tell the body food is on the way if taken before a meal and so tell the body to ramp up HCL production in anticipation of this food. So take and hold under the tongue for several minutes (you have to taste it to trigger the good stuff) about fifteen minutes before a meal. More HCL = better digestion = less stuff causing upset later.

                Also, regular store-bought pasturized dairy isn't great. Try to source it from your farmer's market if you can!

                  Why thank you! Yes, I am quite a piece of perfection.

                    mainly focus on foods that come with fat attached -- red meat, salmon, eggs, avocado. then add in grass-fed dairy and supplemental fats already listed in this thread.
                    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

                        Carbs don't cause GERD, so ultra-low carbs won't get rid of it. Wheat causes GERD. Hernias cause GERD. Pregnancy causes GERD. H. Pylori and ulcers cause GERD. Candida can feel like GERD. Not enough acid can feel like GERD. And sometimes GERD is really just a weak valve. Find the cause first.

                          for many people carbs = grains.

                              I am certain it is not pregnancy, ulcers, h pylori, candida or a hiatal hernia. I seem to have less issues when I keep the carbs down, which is, as mentioned, often wheat products. We tend to produce less acid as we get older so that can def be an issue as I am over 40. Cannot find someone to test me on the acid production so unsure if a weak valve or low acid is involved as well.
