Read an exclusive preview of Men's Health's new book, Eat This, Not That! - the no-diet weight-loss solution.
Here’s what often gets lost in our fat phobia: Some of those fats are actually good for you. More than half the calories in each creamy green fruit comes from one of the world’s healthiest fats, monounsaturates. These fats differ from saturated fats in that they have one double-bonded carbon atom, but that small difference at the molecular level amounts to a dramatic improvement to your health. Numerous studies have shown that monounsaturated fats both improve your cholesterol profile and decrease the amount of triglycerides (more bad fats) floating around in your blood. That can lower your risk of stroke and heart disease. Worried about weight gain? Don’t be. There’s no causal link between monounsaturated fats and body fat.Substitutes: Olive, canola and peanut oils, peanut butter, tahini Recipe idea: Stuff slices into omelettes; remove the pit and fill an avocado half with tuna salad; spread some onto a sandwich in place of mayonnaise; or mash one with a few tablespoons of salsa for a quick, guacamole-like dip to use with tortilla chips.
"those who had been drinking five or more cups of tea per day were 26 percent less likely to die of any cause"
There was a letter in the Lancet recently about this sort of statement.
haha! took me several minutes to realise what was wrong with that statement !
well pointed out
I also thought that you could only drink tea, not eat it, so the title "10 foods you should eat every day" is a bit of a misnomer.
Good to know that I am now varying percent less likely to die of any cause depending on my intake of food and amount of daily exercise.
Imagine being immortal though. At what point would it dawn on your that that would be the worst possible fate imaginable? Or would you learn through eons of time to live with it? I suppose you wouldn't have any choice.
Kryten wrote (see)
Being immortal would be fine so long as you had a really bad memory.
Perhaps that's the way things actually are. We're not going to know any different are we? The Big Bang wasn't the start of everything, just a time when lots of shit was going down. That's what I reckon. Read Spinoza.
